With one daughter grown and the other two teenagers, modesty is always a fight. I have struggled to find a way to teach them this most valuable lesson.
Then the Christmas tree gave me a hint.
What if I wrapped all the presents in pretty, transparent cellophane bags with beautiful bows?
Why would you do that mom?
Well, that way you won't fuss over what is under the tree. You would know what was in every package.
That wouldn't be any fun.
The same thing applies to clothes. Boys go after the girls who are mostly naked because they are advertising free sex. Is that what you want to say?
Dress with care in clothes that flatter you and you will make the boys drool. You will get the right kind of attention.
I don't know if it sank in but I tried. It breaks my heart when I see my oldest dressed like a hooker. I hope my younger kids see the value in dressing nice.
