My daughter went to school today with tight nylon pants, streching material that hugs the body. She usually wears this with a shirt covering her body but she wore waist length shirts. I am tempted to put her in a school with uniforms. This is the first time she's done this and I'm concerned that she will attract the wrong crowd if she hasn't already. She's a beautiful Latin girl and doesn't have to dress like this for attention in the 10th grade, 16 years old. What would you do?Answer Question

I would tell her that outfit is inappropriate and she can't wear it to school. If I thought the school would back me up I'd call and ask them to call her to the office and tell her she was in violation of the dress code. I'm pretty sure our school wouldn't back me up since they allow kids to wear things way less tasteful. My standards are higher than the school dress code, so when I think my daughter's outfits are in really poor taste I take her home and make her change. I explain to her that some articles of clothing are ok, but only when combined with certain other articles of clothing. If she attempts to wear an outfit to school that I've told her is not appropriate then I take it and donate it to Goodwill.
