An egg hat that stays on

Remember those two high school seniors who arranged for dozens of their classmates to wear pink shirts in support of another student who had been bullied for wearing pink? Well, it seems they've really started something. Nova Scotia, the Canadian...

Is it okay to be naked?

I'm not particularly fond of wearing clothes. Sure, there are times when it's necessary to cover up -- to protect against the elements, for example. At home, however, in San Francisco, rarely does the temperature drop so low as to require anything...

The bus stop mom club

Last year, when Ellie was attending a private school, I would drive her to school each morning. My route took us past the corner school bus stop, where the neighborhood moms stood chatting while waiting with their kids for the bus to arrive. I would...

Designer pajamas for kids?

Ellie is in to fashion. She has very distinct ideas about her 'look' and spends a lot of time putting outfits together. I don't even try to buy her clothes without her input anymore - what I pick out almost always ends up being returned. But there is...

Suit and tie -- that's a suspension

Golden Gate High School in Naples, Florida, has, like many schools, a dress code for students. The code calls for collared or polo shirts in a solid color and extending three inches below the waist. They must also be tucked in. What it doesn't allow,...

I once wrote about finding shirts for children with "dirty" words on it quite disturbing. While many of you agreed with me on this issue, there were many who thought it was funny or not harmful. Hey, different strokes for different folks. Now there's...

Should you ignore a hypersexualized teen?

I recently opened up Myspace for some reason, I can't remember what, and eventually ended up searching for the profile of some teenage girls I know. I've known both of these girls, now 15 and 16, since they were very young, and have always considered...
