The purpose of this lesson is to make sure your child understands how to make clothing choices that are appropriate for different occasions and to help them learn to respect their body and protect it. Check out our book, Messages About Me: Also, for boys, Messages About Me: Both of these books discuss the messages kids get from media, friends, and other sources that can often affect body image. They also help kids recognize where we can find true self-worth and to see their bodies for the amazing instruments that they are.
Whether we are talking about the birds and the bees, pornography and her developing brain, or her soon-to-arrive monthly visitor, there are things your daughter needs to know you know. This world is crazy, but you can teach her to protect and honor herself. There are times it is better to speak up through walking away or getting parents or other authorities involved.
She gets to create the kind of life she wants to live, and you are right there beside her. As she learns to navigate, trust, and responsibly use her sexuality, she will become a powerful role model for others, and be ready to achieve her dreams.
The single most important thing you can do is teach her of her value, worthiness to be treated well, and power to become the woman she wants to become. Need help navigating these talks? Now, she knows better, and wants to help other women heal, while empowering parents to have the tough but necessary conversations with their daughters.
I tended to be a bit sluggish and off my game. But if I made a point to wear an outfit that fit who I wanted to be—outgoing, confident, and attractive—then I felt like I could take on the world, even during finals! How can we teach our kids to make smart clothing choices that will help give them confidence and not distract them throughout their day?
As the term began to be used to refer to how one dressed, it was often used to specifically indicate dressing in order to avoid provoking a sexual response in another person. This seems like an awful lot of historical and cultural baggage attached to one term. We want to help educate them so they can make smart, context-appropriate clothing choices that will empower them through a combination of self-respect and self-confidence!
When our kids understand how to be smart about their clothes, they can choose clothing that is functional, comfortable, attractive, and even an expression of their personal style. Well, yes and no. Even though fashion and culture vary widely throughout the world, for the most part, everyone agrees on one boundary: There are practical reasons for this—no one wants their genitals to be harmed! So unless you are currently living in a nudist colony, the one boundary everyone agrees on is to keep those genitals protected and covered.
Families can set their own boundaries regarding clothing. So, how do I talk about making these smart choices with my kids? Start by reassuring your child that they are loved and worth protecting. Then, teach them to run through the following checklist: Who is wearing these clothes? Does the clothing fit them physically? Does it fit their personality? Who else sees these clothes? There is, in my opinion, nothing worse than shoes that are just a smidge too small. They squeeze my feet, are uncomfortable, give me blisters, and keep me from walking around and doing the things I want to do.
As our kids grow and mature, they will become more aware that other people may notice their clothing choices. Where will the clothes be worn? What will the weather or temperature be like there? Our clothes exist in the first place because our bodies need a little help to deal with the elements. When we take the physical context where the clothes will be worn into consideration, we show respect for our surroundings. Why are these clothes being worn? Different events have different purposes, and can require different clothing choices.
Think about what we wear to a funeral. Now compare that to what we wear to a wedding. Are the clothes the same? Probably not, even if both were taking place inside a church. When we wear something outside the expectation for the event, it can distract both ourselves and others from the event itself.
What are the positives and negatives about the clothes being worn? Everything has two sides: For older kids, this question can be another chance to think about the kinds of actions and comments others may have in response to their outfit. Sometimes we want a response—we want to make a statement!
Help teens think about potential positive and negative reactions to give them confidence in their clothing choices. How well will these clothes work to meet their needs? By the time your kids reach HOW, they should have a good idea about what their clothing needs to do for a particular situation.
It should keep them protected from the elements, keep the comfortable and able to participate in the activities they have planned, not distract them, and, with any luck, help them enjoy the fun of self expression.
Take this last moment to double check: Under most circumstances, clothing choices are not a life or death matter, so keep things in perspective and empower your kids to make smart clothing choices! Compliment them when they make smart clothing choices—positive reinforcement! Be a role model—make smart clothing choices in your own life. Take the time to talk as a family about your own family guidelines regarding clothing.
Do your clothes distract you from what you have to do during the day? Do your clothes distract others and are you ok with receiving that attention? Are you meeting the basic boundary? Are your genitals protected and covered? What are the reasons you selected these clothes to wear today? What do your clothes tell people about you? That you are friendly?

It was reported that she was communicating with the Momo social media account right before she filmed her suicide. Momo is social media account that can be found on Facebook, YouTube and Whatsapp. When a person interacts with the account, they begin to receive pictures of Momo, a terrifying image of a bug-eyed toothless woman. Momo responds almost immediately with threatening messages and violent images to the user.
Momo starts with simple challenges like waking up at odd hours of the night or overcoming a fear; then the challenges take on a very sinister turn, such as asking you to post photos or videos of cutting your arms or legs, jumping off of a roof, or other dangerous and risky activities.
As the challenges intensify, the last thing Momo pressures you to do is to commit suicide. If the user fails to accept or pass any of the challenges, Momo sends even more threatening and violent images and texts until the user is coerced into doing the challenge. This can be terrifying to young kids and teens. Others have reported that when they called Momo for a challenge, they heard screams in the background or other creepy noises Foster, There are many reasons; first and foremost the Momo challenge preys on the vulnerability of our kids.
The kids most at risk are those who suffer from depression, anxiety and low self esteem. They may be targeted by other kids to interact with the Momo account as a form of cyberbullying and they do not possess the coping skills to deal with the pressure—both from the challenges and from the bullies.
This challenge is especially dangerous because of the immaturity of children and teens; their brains are still actively developing and going through immense changes. They are much more susceptible to peer pressure and feel an intense desire to keep up with their peers or prove themselves.
Talk to your kids about the Momo Challenge. Ask them if they know what it is. Have they heard of it? Have they tried it? Discuss a plan that includes what they can do if they receive a message with the Momo Challenge. The Momo challenge is not the first challenge to encourage kids to participate in dangerous activities the Slenderman and the Bluewhale challenge are similar challenges that were popular several years ago , and it will not be the last. If your child or teen is engaging in the Momo Challenge, or any other similar challenge, they will probably not volunteer that information to you.
