A few days we talked about watching what our children watch. Trust me, that's not the only thing we need to watch. I've mentioned before that I like people-watching and I also look at what people wear - especially children. I never used to pay that much attention to it but over time my attention span in that area has increased because I simply cannot believe the kinds of things and brands they sell these days. I went looking - here are a few examples:
Now this is only one part of the story: the other part of watching what our children wear relates to general clothing. Did you just squirm? Well, I'll go on...some of the clothes our daughters put on are definitely not "appealing." We've talked about whether the way we dress is appealing or appalling* - the same applies to our children. And what's with those sagging trousers/pants (for males) & low waist trousers/pants (for females) - not a good sight. The Bible is clear:
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. (Prov 22:6 - NIV) Whatever we teach them by example, will stick with them for life.
