I was pretty much speechless when I saw this news story this morning.  And as the father of a little girl I was saddened to think about all the pressure by marketers that will be aimed at her to look a certain way.

That’s why we have an important job as parents.  Don’t let culture raise your girls.  You have the power and influence to help shape her in positive ways, so don’t let others (i.e. marketers) fill that relationship void.
