Psychoanalysts believe that the child hood determines the character of the individual.
Sigmund Freud shifts the blame for any Abnormal behavior to parents.
Now instead leaving dismissing things which are of trivial nature, some people try to find reasons for even these rare instances and at times the ridiculous!
One such is the Reason for a s girl child trying to look sexy.
To the best of my knowledge and experience this is a load of rubbish.
Children behave the way the parents do without knowing why and what they do.
Look at the image above.the child does not seem to be conscious of what it is doing.
Finding out reasons for these…..?
These chaps have to earn Living!
Almost a third of girls’ clothing for sale at 15 major retailers has sexualizing characteristics, a new study finds, a trend that psychologists say can encourage girls to view themselves as sex objects at an early age.
The majority of sexualized clothes also had childlike characteristics, such as polka dots, the research found. Nonetheless, adults in the study rated these childish butsexualizing clothes as just as sexy as clothes with only sexualizing features.
“Even though parents might see them as more acceptable [than purely sexy clothes], I’m not sure they’re perceived that differently,” study researcher Sarah Murnen, a social psychologist at Kenyon College in Ohio, said of the clothes that mixed sexuality and girlishness.
The sexy-clothes trend
Handwringing over the sexualization of young girls is a common theme both in the media and in the mall. In 2007, Wal-Mart pulled a pair of girls’ underwear with the words “Who needs credit cards … ” on the front and “when you have Santa” on the back from the shelves after parental outcry. Those extreme cases get people’s ire up, said Sharon Lamb, a professor of mental health at the University of Massachusetts in Boston who was not involved in the research. But the trend is more insidious than single cases make it out to be, Lamb told LiveScience. [10 Surprising Sex Statistics]
“It’s not just this most outrageous thing,” said Lamb, author of “Packaging Girlhood: Rescuing Our Daughters From Marketer’s Schemes” (St. Martin’s Press, 2006). “It’s a lot of subtle little things, too.”
In 2007, Lamb was part of an American Psychological Association Task Force that reviewed the research on the consequences of sexualization for young girls. The task force found that girls who buy into sexualizing media messages are more likely to experience low self-esteem, depression and eating disorders. One 1998 study found that girls made body-conscious by wearing swimsuits while they did a math test in an empty room did worse on the test than girls completing the same test while wearing sweaters. There were no differences in test-taking performance between boys wearing swimsuits and boys wearing sweaters, suggesting a link between self-objectification and shame and anxiety in girls.
