I have a rule in my house I do not allow my pre teens or teens to dress up for example:

All black

Collars or chokers

Emo

Nemo

Cinderella

Punk

Rock

Heavy metal

You get the idea.

No facial piercing

No tattoos

****************************************

I have no problems with different colors, fashion, style yadda yadda as long as its not EVERY DAY and narrowed to one type of color and style Every day.

****************************************

OCCASSIONS
Yes I allow Halloween, drama plays, characters for shows, tv, commercial plays, yadda yadda is permitted as long as it is a temporary situation.

They dont need to dress up foolishly to express themselves.

I can express myself just fine without wearing all black

Quoting Anonymous:

Sorry that you dont let your kids express themselves, how awful and sad!!

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

I don't think I'd really care, as long as they were doing what they needed to do, not getting sent home from school, and behaving.

I actually care because their focus should be on school and anything else they are doing, not dressing up and playing make believe

Obviously, she must tell her teens to not dress up as a Disney fish.  Odd.  We have never had that conversation and my household is pretty liberal and expressive.
