Sexy Halloween Costumes for Girls: Where Should Parents Draw The Line?


I still remember seeing her when my now-seventh-grade son was in first grade: the 6-year-old girl in the midriff-baring Britney Spears Halloween costume, tossing her hair and trying to give off a decidedly sexy-teen vibe.

She was SIX. And I remember thinking to myself, even then: "This girl will be in trouble someday."

Never mind that the elementary school allowed her to strut her stuff in the school Halloween parade, in obvious violation of the stated Halloween dress code. Where were this girl's parents? And what were they thinking?

In today's Los Angeles Times, Melissa Healy's article, Sexy Halloween Costumes... For Little Girls? talks about titillating Halloween outfits being marketed to kids. It's a trend that's picking up even more steam this year, apparently.

What's a parent to do? Check out the article and tell us what you think.
