Kill them with fire!?!?!? hoochie short mess. adult content

I've blah blah blah'd on cafemom a few times recently about how the Summer clothing selection for little girls is really scary to me this year (my daughter turned 5 last week and we're a bikini free home). My mother in law recently dropped off an enormous bag of clothes (bless her heart!) which includes sadly some shorts we're simply NOT ok with. They aren't even wear under a dress appropriate for us, they're more like underwear in my opinion. So now what? I sell them? Donate them? That seems like the right thing on a practical note but aren't I then passing off bad morals onto some other little girl? But what else can I do with them, dust rags? Toss them in a bonfire? (cannot return, they're from a mall in Canada and I'm in Minnesota!)

  • Buy leggings to go under them, that is what we do with our girls and short bottoms.

  • I completely understand what you are saying. I like the dust rag idea. I also might consider selling them on ebay.

  • Dont just throw them out, donate them and maybe someone else can get some kind of use out of them.

  • Dust rag or donate- someone else may be OK with them- I don't see how short shorts under the dress of a 5 year old is bad morals- it may not be your taste-but bad morals?

  • Put them on with a pair of leggings. That way they don't go to waste and your LO is still modest.

  • Anybody that looks at a 5 yr old as a sex object cause they are wearing short shorts needs a head exam. I guess I do not see what the big deal is. I figure when they hit the teenage yrs and want to wear stuff like that then I will put some conditions on it. But in my experience, if u forbid your dd to wear certain things, then they will sneak around and borrow or buy them from a friend anyway. At least if u are able to regulate things, u at least have control. I think as long as it is tasteful and not real slutty looking then why not?
