The wardrobe wars
'I buy her clothes but how she wears them is up to her!'
My daughter Hannah just turned 8.  I buy her clothes, with some guidance from her of course.
The clothes I buy her are the sensible kind, the way she wears them is an entirely different matter.
 
The jeans get worn with a skirt over them and the long tops get shorter tops on them.
The striped socks get worn with a skirt or the foot pieces get cut off and worn on her arms!
I very often send her back to her room to get redressed.
"Punk" she tells me, that is the style nowadays, the punk look. I remind her that my mom was still dressing me at her age.
 
But what if all the other kids are dressed like this?  I don't want my child to be a social outcast.
Where do parents draw the line when we all have such different standards?
