Mom's Talk: Where Do You Draw The Line On Kids' Outfits?
Abercrombie & Fitch this week introduced, then re-labeled, a "push-up" bikini for pre-teens. If it even exists, where is the line drawn?
Moms Talk is a new feature on Patch that is part of a new initiative on our Patch sites to reach out to moms and families.
Patch's Jersey Shore region invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here.
Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council of experts and smart moms take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community will have a new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, 24-hour pharmacies and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
Moms Talk will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic. Where can we get information on local flu shot clinics for children? How can we help our children's schools weather their budget cutbacks?
So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation:
Abercrombie Kids, a division of Abercrombie & Fitch dedicated to eight to 14-year-olds, this week introduced, then promptly re-labeled, a "push-up" bikini for pre-teens. They now call it a ''padded'' bikini top, after a hailstorm of criticism.
Where do you draw the line with kids' clothes? What's acceptable, at what age, and what is definitely not?
