I've read several posts lately written by moms who are concerned about the immodest fashion trends being targeted at our children.
I, too, have been appalled by some of the suggestive slogans on children's clothing. I have signed the Moms for Modesty Mission Statement here. I'm hoping that some of the "big dogs" in corporate America will take notice of the bloggy moms around the world as we unite to stand for modest clothing for children.
As my children (girls in particular) are growing older, I find it increasingly difficult to find cute, appropriate clothing for them in the stores. Unfortunately, I am not a seamstress (although I would love to learn how to sew); therefore, I often feel that the search for modest children's clothing is a futile one.
I scoff at the styles of clothing I see displayed in the stores that are geared toward my 8 year old daughter. My precious girls WILL NOT be parading around looking like some teenager on a music video or TV sitcom. My handsome son will look like a gentleman--you won't see his pants drooping down to his knees. No sir, my children will not be wearing these "trendy" clothes--not even around the house!
I encourage all of you ladies to take part in this protest of the fashion industry. All women, whether or not they have children, should voice their opinion about the importance of modesty. Shop at retail stores that do offer modest clothing. If your budget is tight, look at consignment shoppes or on eBay. You can often find barely used modest clothing at very affordable prices.
