In town today, walking in front of me was a lady and her daughter (I assume)

Daughter had huge great high heels on shock

Would you allow it? She was 5 maybe 6yo!

Hell no. Looks utterly vile and so damaging.

At home dressing up yes, outside in public no.

Although my inlaws let dd2 go shopping in a halloween outfit last week which was mainly netting and quite see through angry

SO wrong on so many levels. Poor child. Poor pelvis and spine sad

KingRolo Fri 19-Jun-09 19:59:53

Are you sure it was a 5yo? Not a very small lady?

I'm thinking Don't Look Now...

No way my DD is 7 and she loves shoes with heels, because of the noise, but i only ever get tiny ones and just for partys not everyday wear. When they are young its important for them to wear shoes that support their feet and posture not ruin it.

I think its awful. My 3yo loves clippetty clop heels as she calls my work ones but is definately not allowed her own. I tried to buy her some sandals for our holidays and loads of them had heels I thought it was shocking.

my nine year old isn't allowed heels
its fucking ridiculous to put body damaging shoes on children for no reason

lucyellensmumisgreat Fri 19-Jun-09 20:04:14

I have seen lelli kelly's advertised, with "sophisticated heels" FFS!!! hmm

posieparker Fri 19-Jun-09 20:06:16

No, no and no. It is wrong to dress our little girls in 'grown up' shoes, party, in town or anywhere in my book. Some girls came to my dss 7th party in heels and I thought it looked really hideous.

I had a school friend (primary) who was allowed to wear patent heels, and slip-ons in general. I was always desperate to "swap shoes" with her - bit of a craze for us in them days! - and resented my mother for NEVER giving in and ALWAYS buying sensible round-toed, buckled Clarks. (course I love her for it now. Utterly irresponsible letting children wear adult shoes)

scottishmummy Fri 19-Jun-09 20:08:27

over sexualised wee girls in make up etc is so wrong.we live with damaging effects of body image with out inflicting it upon them young

cookielove Fri 19-Jun-09 20:09:47

these are ridculous

oooh i agree with op

badgermonkey Fri 19-Jun-09 20:10:01

I once saw a girl who looked like a smallish 6-year-old clumping along in town with really high-heeled boots on. She looked like she was not enjoying it at all. A little heel on party shoes is fine, but not for day-to-day wear.

dd1 who is 4.10 had some wedge boots that shes allowed for special occasions (go with one particular outfit) and some party shoes with a very small heel (they are worn about every 6 weeks for 2 hours)apart from that she has clarks shoes and sandals and trainers for park

Another reason for hating Lelli Kellis - Lucyellensmum

scottishmummy Fri 19-Jun-09 20:13:15

cookie those shoes are,eugh like something lily savage would wear

5inthebed Fri 19-Jun-09 20:16:12

I hate them on young girls. My sisters fiance's daughter wears these awful knee length high heeled boots, and she is five. Truly awful!

junglist1 Fri 19-Jun-09 20:16:21

What common sense the mum must have, she must be teaching her child what life is all about. Never mind war and famine, just make sure you look sexy at all times and you'll get everything you want. Don't get a job, bag a footballer. Next year she'll be out with tracksuit bottoms that have horny written on the bum.

Servalan Fri 19-Jun-09 20:17:38

Ghastly, vile and just plain wrong!

The sexualisation of children is hideous in itself, let alone the physical damage done to spine etc.

Why can't children be allowed to be children FFS.

Claire2009 Fri 19-Jun-09 20:20:55

She was def a child, the Lady was pushing a buggy with a baby in, Child next to her chatting away, walking was slow because of work going on in town & I had Ds in the buggy behind.

5-6yo had pink leggings, top, sleeveless coat, black boots, ended just below her knee, heels, I'd struggle with! She walked a bit wobbly, I kept looking at her feet. The Lady had flip flops on, and I was thinking "How come you're wearing nice comfy flip flops and have put you're dd in them?!" hmm

ray81 Fri 19-Jun-09 20:26:03

its sounds like her child is a fashion accessory for her and was dressed like an adult. How awful, they grow up so quick, i try very hard to put my DD who is 7 in little girls clothes and she hates it and wants fashion but i am not having any of it, shes tiny anyway so its all too big but even if it wasnt id say NO. Little girls should be allowed to be little girls.

DD (4.7) had a minor meltdown at a bus stop a little while ago, because she didn't have any shoes "with long bits behind" and I must buy her some ASAP.
