This isn't my usual kind of blog. I leave these to Kelly :).
Anyway, I help at the elementary school on Monday afternoons doing whatever office work needs to be done. (copying, laminating, binding, etc..) I have heard Hannah for the last two weeks talk about how "cool" her friends dress. They get to wear make-up, short skirts, big earrings. On and on. Mind you she is second grade.
Today I met their mothers. No wonder these little girls dress that way! Their mothers were dressed so inappropriate I felt embarrassed for them! The mothers wearing low cut, tight clothing meant for a teenager in the first place. Where are their daughters going to learn modesty?? I'm all for dressing your age. Not like an old lady, or out of style, but there are a lot of clothes out there that cover yourself up and not leave you on display for every child and teacher to have to try and avoid.
I have already been teaching Hannah about modesty. Not teaching her that I want her to be out of style, but rather pleasing God even in her dress. I pray for these little girls in her class that don't know anything about modesty and have no example. What is their teenage life going to be like? Mothers, we are an example of what our girls are going to dress like. What we allow in moderation, they will want in excess.
Sorry to go on about a subject that we have all heard about many times. I just feel that it is so important even for our little ones. Thanks for letting me say it again. :)
