As a mom of 2 girls, I have been very dismayed at what is available for them. It is very difficult to find modest clothing that is also cute and does not have double meaning statements on it. When my youngest was smaller I was hard pressed to find small girls clothes that did not look like it really belonged on an adult. I do believe you train and teach your children about modesty but I also believe that manufacturers and marketers listen when a large group of people publicly say something. As Jules wrote: "Many retailers, marketing and PR firms review mommy blogs for trends and opinions. If we speak as one we may be able to effect change."
For this Jules has made today, Tuesday's post, a Moms & Dads Modesty Mission Statement. Click over here to read all about it. She has also made available her comment section on this post for you to add your agreement in a type of petition. And as she has stated, "This is not an issue that is exclusively Christian in nature, though I am a Christian mom. It is a parenting issue, a mom issue." So, if you read and agree with the mission statement, please feel free to leave your comment at her site.
