Will someone PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY little girls don’t wear shorts under their skirts anymore?!?! I never see a boys underwear as these children play, crawl, climb, wrestle, tickle, jump and generally get active. But guaranteed, every time I go to the playground, or take my preschooler to school, there is always a girl running around holding her skirt up to show her panty, or rolling on the floor showing her panty, or climbing and showing her panty.
One boy in my daughter’s class commented on a girl’s panty as pretty and the teacher told him that it was not a nice comment. My question is why didn’t the teacher suggest the parents put shorts on the girl? At that age, boys and girls are not sexual so the boy was not making a sexual comment and was probably confused why he could comment on other clothing but not on panties since he could see it. After all, if you can see a shirt or pants, you can comment on them.
Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but underwear should not be on display in most situations. The color of a girl’s panty is not supposed to be common knowledge. I understand a lot of skirts and dresses don’t come with shorts attached any more, but that does not prevent me from purchasing a pair that match the dress or skirt for my three-year old. I don’t expect my three-year old to remember to hide her panty as she’s playing. I expect her to have fun. Nor do I want some one looking at her panty.
Is this the new trend? If it is, then I’m definitely going to be raising my daughter to be an individual and not a slave to silly, fashion trends. I’m pretty sure when she gets to regular school, displaying her panty will not be tolerated.
