When I originally wrote this post, I had just discovered Everyday Mommy's blog. There were some really good articles there, but the one that really caught my attention was the first one written entitled To Moms of Little Girls. In it, she shared what we've already seen- the clothing for young girls is not "little girl" at all!!! Where has modesty gone? Where has CHILDHOOD gone??

In this post, she was calling us to let our voices be heard!! We, as mommies, will NOT buy the horribly immodest, tramplike wear they try to sell to mothers of young girls. Not me, nu-uh, no way, Jose!!!!

Here, just read the mission statement...

Moms for Modesty Mission Statement:
-As a Mom for Modesty I believe in common-sense modesty for girls and young women.
-I believe in refraining from sexualizing our girls and young women.
-I believe that it is unwise and unfair to taunt boys and young men by permitting my daughter(s) to dress in an immodest manner.
-I believe that true beauty comes from within and I strive to teach my daughter(s) this truth.
-I will loyally shop at retailers that provide girls' and young womens clothing that is modest, affordable and stylish.

Let retailers know that you want your little girl to actually LOOK like a little girl. Let them know you stand for modesty. Let them know that you stand by what you say. And, most of all, let your daughters know that you love them by protecting them from what retailers are trying to make our daughters into- the image of a depraved, fallen world.

Your daughter is worth it.

Ahem. I totally agree and have had to explain to my 11 year old several times why she could not have a certain outfit.

Not only for little girls but it's even worse for girls who've advanced to junior sizes. Oh my goodness! Luckily for me, my daughter is naturally modest so we don't have to argue about it.

I completely agree. My daughter is a VERY TALL 7 year old and is starting to wear junior clothes (just to find outfits that cover her up properly) - and by and large, the clothes in the shops these days make the girls look like tramps. This is a reproach.

Wish I could afford Land's End-type of clothing!
