The Four 'B' Policy in Dressing
The Four 'B' Policy in Dressing
Dear Dr. Laura,

Amen to your blog, "When Your Teen Dresses Like a Slut"!

I have two 'tween' daughters, ages 10 and 12.  My husband and I decided on a clothing policy a few years ago when they started choosing their own clothes. We have the "four B policy"--meaning that their clothing/outfits may not show boobs, bra straps, belly, or butt. The middle school that my daughter attends also has a skirt length policy which states the acceptable length for a skirt hem is at the edge of the fingertips when your arms are held at your sides (which is borderline acceptable for us, but we decide on a case by case basis!)

Of course, our policy was initially met with protest, but now they point out other young ladies in public places and remark, "Uh-oh, she's breaking the '4B' rule!" I love it.

Also, in your blog, I love what you said to the bombshell girl about the boys talking to her because they think she's intelligent! I ask my girls, when they see gals in trampy outfits getting attention from boys, "Why do you think those boys are talking to that girl? Do you think it's about her nice personality?" And they laugh! That is music to my ears!

Thank you for that blog and keep up the great work!
