As most of my readers know I have four daughters. My oldest is 11 and just went into 6th grade.
She goes to public school because we can't afford private. She is a modest girl. She won't wear dresses or skirts. She isn't a tom boy, I would say more goth than anything and I only say that because she loves black. She isn't allowed to wear makeup, except for a glossy lip stuff. She is just starting to get into some of the name brands and I am ok with that. She knows that most of it is expensive and I will buy it on special occasions.
But then there is the rest of the world? Parents - where in the hell are you shopping and why???????
These young girls look like gang bangers or bikers girlfriends at 11! WTH are you thinking? I don't even see these kind of clothes when I am shopping. I am no prude, but seriously people they are only 11. Most girls don't even dress that way at 16.
Our society makes me sad. One more thing I feel I have to keep my daughter from - too much sexuality at 11.
