When I was a kid, clothing for children looked like clothing for children.

For many years now, kids clothing tends to look like miniature versions of adult clothing.

This bothers some parents more than others.

Mom @Thecrazycreativeteacher and her daughter were shopping at Target when she spotted dresses she initially thought would be “so cute for Easter.”

Until she looked closer.

“I’m a little more conservative when it comes to my kids clothes,” she says in the opening of her viral TikTok video.

She then shows her viewers some dresses on a rack, noting the slits on all of them “right at the hips.”

She clarifies that she wouldn’t have a problem with this feature for a dress for 12 year olds, but it crosses a line at dresses for 6 to 7 year olds.

It’s bad enough that women’s clothing doesn’t have pockets.

Some people didn’t interpret this as sexualization of children.

Excellent points. Let kids be kids and keep it simple.

As consumers, we can actively avoid buying from retailers who are doing things we ethically disagree with.

Acting with your wallet is the best way to help influence a market.
