Moms for Modesty

Moms for Modesty

Hey y'all!
As a young mom of a "little" girl, 3 1/2 yrs and of a "young" boy, 5 1/2...I've been shocked and appalled at the growing trends and styles of the up and coming generation of girl tweens and teens, and sometimes even the younger girls! What is going on here? Have we looked to see who these young girls look to as "role models"? Now that will send you through the loop!! Even more unsettling are the parents who hold the girls' shopping bags and plunk down their credit cards to pay for the immodest clothing! What message are we sending to our children? A dangerous message and one that will have/has had serious consequenses and effects upon our culture and society. Many in the "secular world" may think that is just "normal"...let the girls do what they want, they're just "having fun"...but many of the secular world may NOT think that way, they are as appalled as I am! It is not "only" a religious issue but a social issue and a family issue. However, being a Believer I must say that we hold to a different standard (God's Word) than the world. Now, I am not saying our girls should be wearing ankle length skirts or long sleeved turtlenecks ALL the time...but where do we draw the line?

Now let's think about our boys for a minute. Do we want them to struggle even more than they already will/do with what is put before their eyes? You can't get away from it...it's on TV, billboards, ads, music, etc. But we can have a say in what our daughters wear and we can have a say in what our boys see...while they are young and in the "raising stage" of their young lives.

I believe that as Christians, each family raises their children in a manner unique to themselves---led by the Holy Spirit. We may not all "look" the same but our hearts should be on the same page (what God's Word says). Listen y'all, we as parents are in a "battle" for our kids. We must be ACTIVE and sometimes PRO-Active, it's our responsibility and our privilege to raise/teach/protect our children, as gifts on loan from God for a season. I encourage y'all to check out Jules web page Everyday Mommy on this subject---
