  • Are any of her dresses inappropriate? If not then I say let her express herself. If they are I would speak to whom ever bought those and tell them they are allowed in your home, and I would even let her see them.

  • compromise with her...she starting to get opinions of her own, and you have to encourage her with that...what i did with my daughter is let her either pick out the shirt or the pants..(normally she would pick the shirt) and then I would pick the other one..that way she felt as if she was choosing her outfit..

  • I have two answers for you.....

    #1 I dont CONVINCE my children to do anything. I am the parent, what I say is what they do. period. They can lay on the floor and cry for what I say.

    #2 I dont have any cloths in their closet that I feel are inappropriate. Unless you are speaking of wanting to wear a swimsuit to their Christmas party...I get that...but otherwise....all of their cloths are ok.

  • When it's something like a special occasion, you pick out a few things you feel are appropriate and then let her choose from them. Beyond that, everything in her wardrobe your buying, so you should like everything in it.

  • If she is 4, why are you "trying to convince her?" You are the mom, be the mom if you don't like the clothes then don't buy them for her to wear. That simple. You chose and buy the clothes you want her to wear. That simple. Now, if you miss typed and she is 14 then you are still the mom and if you find something inappropriate then don't let her wear it by buying it for her or giving her money to buy it herself.

  • I don't think a 4-year-old has any inappropriate clothes.. Let her creat her own style!

  • I agree with alot of the moms. Don't argue with your daughter.You are her mom and you tell her what to do.. You may offer a choice of this or that dress but other than that..

  • I don't convince my 4 year old to do anything. At that age they will do what I ask. But I just wouldn't have anything inappropriate for them to choose from to begin with.
