Really? A crop top? For a 6 yr old?!!!!
So maybe I am old-fashioned, but I have been reading about all SM's on this site who are dealing with teen SD's wearing booty shorts, mini-skirts, bikinis & all around too tight, too skimpy clothes. How do they end up thinking that dressing this way is OK? At some point, someone has to buy that crap for them. In my case, it is my MIL.
Last year, MIL bought SD, then 5, a string bikini. I was not even aware that they made string bikinis in extra small girls sizes. Last night, she comes home from MIL's in a crop top. Sorry, but I think that is just trashy. SD already thinks she is 6 going on 16. She does not need any encouragement. She needs to be told that her body is not the most important thing about her. She already asks questions like "Am I cute?" How about health, athleticism, intelligence, manners, integrity? In the long run, those are the things that matter!
I said something to DH & he was like "Eh, I don't like it but what are you gonna do?" Um, how about tell your mother that crop tops & string bikinis are inappropriate attire for a kindergartener!!! But god forbid we criticize MIL. Nope, just wait until SD is a crazy, over-sexualized, out of control teenager & tell the SM that she is overreacting just like you all always do. ARRGH! LET IT GO!!!!!
