    I see it all the time, and we don't really have a dress code, so whatever goes.

    If I see an issue, I casually say to the child, that they maybe shouldn't wear those shoes again because _____.

    Only shoes I've ever seen the principal call home about were the boys who wore football cleats to school.

    It upsets me to see little girls wearing heels and makeup. :(

    We have uniforms as well, but like another poster said, when they dress up, it's "Katie bar the door" lol. They mimic what they see the adults wear - micro skirts, spandex leggings, crop tops, heels, makeup, you name it. It's what they see, learn and are given at home.

    It is funny because I just spoke with my husband about this over the weekend. I have two kindergarten students who are cute as a freaking button, but they dress "sexily" on a regular basis and it really bothers me. It's obviously all a matter of opinion, but it disturbs us both. Of course, it's not just a pair of "grown up" shoes every now and then....much more than that.

    Sure is quiet here now. I think most of us understood it to be that Resentful wasn't complaining solely about this topic to her mom. They were having a general conversation & the topic came up, in which her mother was probably frustrated to hear about things like that. My mom would be too.

    Well, many parents today don't let their kids be kids anymore & it's really sad. Girls have from ages 16 to probably 60 something yrs of age to wear heels. They're not trying to impress the boys already...I hope! :mad: Well, these days, probably so. Plus, like Mike said, the health problems from wearing them this young will probably occur I'm sure.

    I have two kids who dress within the dress code, but they definitely don't look like little girls.

    But...have y'all gone shopping for girl clothes lately? It's all skinny jeans and slinky looking tops.

    I'll admit the only place I see clothes for girls is at Target and even then it's only in passing, but I think the stuff they have out is appropriate.

    I have cousins who are in 10th, 8th, and 5th grades. They all dress appropriately. Not sure where they shop though.

    I do see a lot of girls dressed inappropriately for their ages when I'm out and about. High heels don't bother me, it's the short skirts, skin tight clothing, low cut shirts, etc...

    Today it was 64 F in December, so naturally everyone was wearing more spring type clothing. However, these mini skirts that the girls wear....sheesh. The hem literally stops right where their cheeks meet their legs. I am constantly doing a little wiggle motion, silently alerting them to "pull it down"!

    As a mother of a little girl, it is hard to find clothes that cover and are modest. For some reason the people that make jeans for little girls thinks they need to show their tushy.

    I found this out when I went shopping at Christmas time. I had to buy clothes for a 9 year old girl that my community club was sponsoring for thie holidays. I had to look in 3 stores to find something modest, especially since I didn't even know the girl so it had to be something appropriate. I found a black sparkly sweatshirt that cost a lot but it was better than buying something slinky!

    Now that this has been bumped, just wanted to add....

    On the COLDEST day of the year, I wrote up a girl for wearing a too short skirt and a tank top with lacy bra straps hanging out. :eek:

    And about five other girls were wearing similar short skirts.

    This is the style they all wear. Is this popular anywhere else?

    When the girls walk, the skirts slowly inch upwards. We tell them to pull it down because, you're right, it is SUPPOSED to be past fingertip.

    I also think the style is just too sexy for a 13 year old. Not to mention it's completely inappropriate when it's 14 degrees outside.

    Wouldn't fly at my school - skirts and short have to hit the middle of the back of the knee.
