We just got back from dinner. As we waited for, "Ryan party of 7" to be called we watched a bunch of High School boys and girls walk in. We were waiting for a seat with an ocean view so we had some time to wait.
It was prom night, as we sat there Faith and I watched as the girls walked in. We did our fashion do's and don'ts.
Faith would say, "oh, her hair looks good down with that style dress or she should of worn a softer shade of lipstick with that color dress etc...." Then there came a point where I covered my boys eyes and stood there with my jaw hanging open. Call me old fashion but some of these girls were wearing dresses that barley covered their behinds. They had heels that looked as if they picked them up at a Vegas exotic dance shop. One girls dress was cut so low in the front that there was no way she could dance without having a replay of the famous Superbowl halftime show. These girls were trying to look 25! I just don't understand how their parents could let them walk out of the house! Did they have a cute age appropriate dress on then change in the limo? No! These parents really took pictures of their kids like this and thought it was ok? What were these boys mom's thinking as they stood next to a girl dressed as a stripper? I remember going to prom and everyone would come over and take pictures before we headed off. I don't know if that was back in the old days or what, but if my Grandparents ever saw me wearing something like that, they would of marched me straight back inside the house! Then gave my parents a talkin' too! What does the school say when they see these girls walking in like this? Is that really allowed?
My heart broke for these young girls! And boys! They are so young...It was a perfect learning experience for Faith. We talked about how to dress classy and not trashy. In fact, if any of my girls ever go to prom, we are bringing Daddy and Jesus with us when we go shopping....and if they both approve of the dress they can wear it.
This just breaks my heart even more. A dance team from OC.. These girls are Faith's age!
What is with parents?!?!
