Unfortunately, it's not a new level of snob for me. I see it a lot here too. That's the kind of opinion that makes me give even less of a ****(if at all possible) than I already do about what my kids wear.

Naive wouldn't even be the proper word to use in any scenario there, lol. It doesn't fit the situation whatsoever. Unless the poster is discussing themselves. If that's the case, yes, you're a naive snob.

For my daughter (and same will apply for the one on the way) She has to be able to bend over with nothing hanging out the back. Shorts are a must under skirts and dresses (no matter how long, kids will be kids!!). She does do pageants so she gets to wear some makeup for that. But her rules for pageant clothes are even stricter than her rules for street clothes. I am ok with her swimming in a two piece, and because of her body type it is a necessity. She is so long and skinny that if I get a one piece it is either so tight it tugs down in the front and up at the bottom, or it is so loose on bottom you can see her girl parts. On stage she is not allowed to wear a swimsuit at all. Swimsuits are for swimming not for prancing around in front of people with hair and makeup up done. in fact she is not allowed to show her belly at all at pageants.

She likes to wear dresses and skirts most of the time, and would wear heels every day if I let her. But I won't.

I dress modestly and basically if its something I wouldn't wear, she won't wear it.

I may change a little when she is a teenager depending on how she acts and her body type
What if your son wanted to wear a character shirt and shorts out though? I really don't get why you wouldn't let your child have some say in what he wants to wear. I am not a huge fan of character shirts, but you can bet if we are out and my son wants one I will get it for him (if it isn't expensive). It won't be something for him to wear at home only, either. Maybe it is just me, but I would think my son would like to show others the shirt he picked out for himself.

I'm far from naive...... My dd lives in spaghetti strap tank tops & booty shorts. She's a dancer & a gymnastic. Her clothes fit her & she looks fabulous.

If it doesn't make them scream in horror at the feel of it against their skin and it fits into the dress code for school, they can wear it.
