My Daughter Dresses Inappropriately!


Ahh, boundaries.  It seems to be a constant problem for parents and daughters.  We all go through that stage.  In this video I talk about how to talk to your daughter about her clothing and style choices and how to present herself to boys.  Here is an overview:

1) Pick your battles

2) If you tell her no, she will do it worse

3) Let them try on their identity and experiment a little

4) Teach them how to be pretty–not slutty

5) Find out how her friends dress, is this an identity thing or a peer pressure thing?

6) Try to incorporate fashion–in a good way.
