Diptera Made Me Think of This

…with his thoughtful post on not-so-thoughtful dressing by teenagers or of small children by parents who should know better but wish only to be known as ‘with it’, regardless of the cost later down the road. This photo of local HIGHSCHOOLERS was in the paper this morning. major dad couldn’t help commenting that if one of them had been our daughter…

quite possibly there would be a problem you wouldn’t want to be within 5 miles of our humble abode when major daddy saw the picture over morning java. Even more horrific, I can’t imagine Bingley realizing what Bunny Bear wasn’t wearing to the game the night before.
Even our local columnist was channeling the DET today. I sense a trend.
But I’m quite sure we’re in the minority, as Diptera points out. There wouldn’t be an industry if everyone made sure their kids were dressed appropriately. But that would mean making an effort and perhaps an ugly scene laying down the sartorial law. Parents these days are consumed by their children fitting in and where they have to be in an hour, so big deal MacKenzie looks like an even cheaper Madonna ~ the old girl’s still raking in the dough, right?

    Their parents must be so proud… A coworker’s niece got sent home from school last year for wearing a mini that was a tad too mini. Was her mother angry at the daughter for the too short skirt??? No, her wrath was aimed at the school for not understanding fashion. Dad was not so kind to the girl, he did a review of her closet and removed about half of her clothes.

    It seems like half of her clothes were removed when she bought them, Kruella…
    Daughter can wear what she wants.
    When she’s 35.

    Dave J – you’ll say that until you have a daughter. Then you’ll go buy a Mossberg 500.
