4-Year-Old Wears Fake Breasts on Toddlers & Tiaras

As a mother to a 12-year-old girl, Brown acknowledged the difficulty in shielding her from the sexualization of girls and the objectification of women in society.

"Childhood is a time to learn about the world, explore, pretend, imagine, and create in a safe vacuum of innocence," she said. "Bypassing those critical life experiences and developmental stages by trying to dress, act, and be treated like an adult leaves these children lacking important life skills that help them be confident and successful adults."

To combat the inevitable bombardment of images on shows like Toddlers and Tiaras, Levin encouraged parents to communicate with their children about what it is they're seeing on TV and hearing at school. It's important for parents not to brush these images off as inappropriate behavior, marketing and media, but to acknowledge and explain to children what they're seeing and what makes it inappropriate.

"Of course, you should protect children as much as possible, so you don't go and watch Toddlers and Tiaras with them," said Levin. " We have to set limits, but we also have to teach them how to live productively in this world."
