I want him to be safe. While the author here does not go out of her way to point the issue with girls clothing to the sexualization of our children, that is exactly what it is. I would love to see more long shorts and skirts! All that said, I think this stems from misperceptions about what girls want.

Something else you might notice if you look is that the neck on round neck shirts for girl is significantly lower than boys. The difference in standard waist measurement between a size 2T and a size 6 is a matter of 2 TWO inches. I want longer shorts for girls, absolutely, but how is this any different than the 80?
Sometimes I was able to sew, or to pay someone else to sew for them. I have a little girl who just turned 8 and a 5 year old little boy. Beautiful article Thank you for writing it!!!
