This week we are talking about toddler modesty. What a fabulous question - I know it is one that I have pondered with my little girl. I'm anxious to see what your thoughts are on this.
Check out what our reader said:
"My question: Where do you draw the line for what is modest clothing for a toddler?
With hotter months coming up, I have been pulling out all the summer clothes for my daugther. I'm starting to wonder what I'm willing to have her wear in terms of modesty. I don't have a problem with any shorts or skirts being too short-- (I don't like her diaper showing), so short shorts aren't really an issue. Shirts and dresses make me wonder more. The modesty lines I draw for myself have more to do with age, body development, and style. For Jane, I don't know where the line should be. For example: sleeves or no sleeves? I'm not worried about her shoulders being overly-appealing to any young men her age, but if I let her wear sleeveless shirts, am I setting her up for bad dressing habits later on? What clothes do you consider appropriate for toddlers and what is inappropriate? Do you think that what kids wear when they're one or two years old affects what they want to wear later?"
So help her out! Let us know your thoughts on toddler modesty (especially for little girls) and don't be afraid to have a different opinion than someone else - we need all sides of the question discussed.
Thanks so much for your thoughts and for those of you that keep sending is us awesome reader requests.
