This is kind of a rhetorical question. I already know the answer. I too am guilty of dressing up as a French Maid once or twice in my twenties. Now that I am a Mom to four daughters I see things A WHOLE LOT differently.
Three of my daughters are still young enough where they want to be characters. But, my 10 year old who is the size of a teenager, is a different story. She is wearing teen size clothes and with teen size clothes there is a lot of inappropriate clothing out there. I think not only inappropriate for a teenage girl, but for the many tweens out there who are the size of teenagers already.
I have to sit back and wonder why there is so much sexuality in Halloween when it is a child's holiday. I realize that it is a night where adults can dress up as whatever they like as well (slutty or not). But for a country that is trying to get the teen pregnancy rate down - is letting your kids sexy really the right message?
