Raising Teens: Daddy’s Money

Oh goodness, even I am surprised at the news that I am going to be telling you about today.

Apparently, a popular shoe company has been marketing brightly colored high heeled sneakers to tween and teen girls. High heeled sneakers-that just doesn’t make sense to me. The other thing that confuses me is the name of these sneakers. They are called none other than…”Daddy’s Money.” So, the implication is that you butter up daddy and he’ll spring for these shoes just in time for Spring. How cute!

This is a dreadful message to give to young girls. Butter up men and you’ll get what you want? Yikes. I really dislike this. It seems sexist and totally inappropriate. And by the way sneakers should not have heels! Need I say more about how I feel?
