What is the best way for me to instill in Punk standards for clothing? Here is my main problem. The 'real mom' does not dress how I would ever want to see my daughter dress. I have on more than one occassion seen WAY more than I ever wanted to see of real mom's body, and it makes me kind of sick, to be honest. How am I supposed to tell Punk that you shouldn't wear certain things when her mom dresses like that? Two years ago for Halloween [she was 6 at the time], her mom dressed her up like "Pumpkin Spice". In my head, I'm thinking lots of orange, lots of sparkle, cute idea. Then she tells me that her skirt was so short she had to wear dance shorts underneath because her butt hung out. NOT OKAY! She was freaking 6 years old!! We go clothes shopping, and she picks out things that are way too small for her, and when she tries them on, she tells me they are fine. Not at our house!
What's the best way for me to say, "You can't walk around looking like a ho," to an 8-year old with a mom that dresses, well, like a ho?
I would love for any input if any of you have been through this!
