Today I was listening to Dennis Prager, a conservative radio talk show host. I caught the tale end of a conversation he was having with a woman about young girls' clothing and, from what I could tell, how immodest it was becoming.
I admit, I find myself raising an eyebrow at some of the things I see parents letting their young daughters wear for the sake of style. The thing that caught me about this listener was her comment towards the end of the conversation. I am paraphrasing here:
I think many women essentially long for the days when they had their girlish figures. So much so that they use their daughters to recapture their youth. Basically, live vicariously through them.
I really wish I had the exact comment. It was very insightful, as I had never thought of it that way.
What do you think?
