    That’s bittersweet.

    So, Mom, you want Teena to be like Jeri? Why? You’ve already got a Jeri. Let Teena be who she is, and stop trying to cram her into some standardized “girl” box.

    My daughters – particularly my older, 10-year-old – LOVE to wear dresses.

    Her mother’s trouser/top combination is hardly a good example of femininity… but she knows she looks (and feels) good in it, so why undermine her daughter’s confidence?

    Look in a mirror, mom. A plain top, and straight slacks. Teena is learning by example. Don’t try to turn her into a Shirley Temple.

    Besides, Teena’s too old for “Toddlers and Tiaras.”

    Sometimes you gotta prod a kid into trying something new. Then step back and let them discover for themselves.

    I never wanted to go shopping for new clothes and did not want anything the least bit trendy


    Finally one year in High School I broke down and “let” my Mom buy me some nice stuff


    That was the year the girls noticed me

    Yes, we know, but not every one. Some are different and should be left alone.

    Gender isn’t in the clothes but their morphology. Not that everyone agrees.

    The girls never noticed me so it must be more than clothes.

    One of the more common fights I have with my mom is over clothing.
    []
    Not only is mom constantly getting new clothes for herself, she’s also constantly trying to get new clothes for others.
    []
    Thing is, no matter how often I tell her what sizes I take, she almost always gets me things that don’t fit… and then promptly gets offended when I tell her so without even trying it on. (I’m a 44 waist; there’s no way a 50 is going to fit me.)
