I'm confused. I think we're on the same side here - having an appropriately dressed child who is in compliance with the dress code, correct?
Maybe you weren't replying to my post specifically, but I think you and I are in agreement on the issue.
I attended prom as a junior and senior and had a similar experience. Juniors raised money, decorated, etc, while seniors attended for free; sophomores were prom servers. We also had the after-prom party at the bowling alley/cinemas.
I don't have kids, so I'm not aware of how things are now. From talking to some friends who are parents, I sometimes question their judgement when it comes to the things they allow their kids to do. I wouldn't be surprised if a parent - or group of parents - got together and had a private event for their kids. It seems more often these days that parents defend their children, whether they're right or wrong. My parents heard all sides of the story before making any decisions. If I was wrong, they told me I was wrong. They did not make any claims about having a perfect child who does no wrong. They seemed to be much more realistic than parents are today.
.………
For the person who said he/she is purchasing the dress and it will be what he/she wants: be prepared for the consequences. Do you allow your child to purchase clothing for school that clearly violates the dress code? If not, why are you defending your position to do it now?

Dress codes? There is no dress code enforcement during school why worry about the prom. Some of the girls at the high school wear a little as possible so they can show off their bodies and someone is buying these cloths.

I went to prom in 1999 and my dress was a two piece. Low cut, showed my belly and had a slit half way up my thigh. I got many compliments from chaperones and teachers.

My niece's dress had slits cut out of the side. What is "inappropriate" varies by person, but showing skin is NOT a sign of sluttyness. Some parents think if their daughters wear shorts above the knee it's vulgar. Many parents are super conservative and go overboard with "covering up".

These are 17 year olds at least. Maybe some are younger if they have an older date. These are adults for the most part and if a girl has it, she should flaunt it, especially if it's at prom.

Inappropriate clothing would show a butt crack, nipples or the private area. If students by the age of 17 have never seen a belly or back then they are not ready for adulthood. You see less at prom, even with the sexy dresses, than at the beach.

And if I had a 17 year old daughter I'd get her the sexiest dress money could buy and make sure she was the hottest thing at prom. They only live once! Live well!

Well said. On prom night they might also get an "unexpected" gift that will attend their own prom 18 or 19 years later.
We speak from experience. This girl will agree with us in a few years. She just doesn't realize it yet.
That's what birth control and condoms are for. And if the teen hasn't prepared themselves for what might happen after prom, it's up to the parents of both the male and female to equip them with the proper devices to ensure nobody gets pregnant, just in case there is some hanky panky going on.

Yes, I do know what I'm talking about. Not only did I attend TWO proms at CHS I have two daughters go to the prom in the past two years. Just the fact that you think it's ok to tell an adult to "shut up" shows that you NEED some rules. They probably weren't enforced by your parents for sure.
What exactly about the dress code upsets you. I have looked at the Prom Walk pictures from years past and none of the girls look like they escaped from an Amish community. Unless you become independently wealthy AKA----rich, you are always going to have rules to follow. It might be time to grow up and make the best of it.
Well, I'm an adult and I'd tell another adult to shut up if they deserved it. Adults have a complex that they think kids and teens must listen to them no matter what. Being an adult doesn't mean you are always right. And a child should never just do as they are told simply because someone older tells them to if, and only if they have proof to back up their cause. So if push came to shove, and a parent was getting fresh with my child, and my child was right and they said "shut up" then good for them. Because my children are assertive and are not going to be pushed around by anyone, adult, teacher, principal or someone off the street. Too often schools try to be parents. They teach children, and last I checked prom isn't an academic experience. So there's no reason for a dress code to be enforced. There are obscenity laws that govern our country, that should be enough. The church ladies and the cookie baking soccer moms that are offended by a pretty young girl's nice body are the problem here. They are personally opposed so that means EVERYONE'S daughters should dress the way they would have their daughters dress. Those parents need to worry about their own kids, and let other parents worry about their kids. And at 17 if a child has been so sheltered that they go into fits for seeing a high cut slit or a low cut top then the problem is THEIR parents, not any daughter who happens to wear a sexy dress.

I think "parents" like you are the reason our society is the way it is today. Are you SERIOUSLY telling your child that they have the right to speak to adults any way they want to? If so, you are doing your child a great disservice. This is a SCHOOL SPONSORED EVENT. It is not their god given right to attend this event. The school could say NO PROM AT ALL if they wanted to.

Just because you want your child to be able to show off their "nice body" doesn't mean that everyone has to see it. If something happened to your child at prom you would probably be the first person in line to sue the Board of Education.

You say that the school tries to act like parents.......it seems to me that when their "parents" aren't doing their job SOMEBODY needs to step in.

I have seen many pictures of the dresses that were worn at CRHS Prom the past few years. I saw a lot of plunging necklines and slits up the side. Those kids seemed to be able to abide by the dress code. What do you want your kid to wear? How about a thong and some pasties.

They'll be the most expensive thong and pasties she can afford!!! Ha ha.

What a joke! I can't believe what this woman is writing! I'm assuming it's a woman, because what father in his right mind would let his daughter out of the house dressed like that?!?!

I have a feeling this woman's child is always right, no matter what the other side of the story is. What a disservice she has done to her child. The real world is going to smack this child right in the face one day. There are some situations that mommy can't fix, and kid isn't going to have adequate coping skills when those situations arise.

In your indivdual case, I would suggest a traditional corsage because thats a close to scoring on prom night as you will get. Just remember to act nervous when pinning it on, that way you can hover about the breast longer.

Then let your daughter/niece/whoever wear her dress on a street corner somewhere. If you think she'd be mistaken for a prostitute, then she's attending the wrong celebration. Let her begin her lucrative sex trade career early. I've heard those johns like the young ones!

Like someone a few post said that prom is a school sponsored event, it is not a right. If you do not like this have your own prom at Tops. these girls are looking like hookers, not ladies. Again this is pair on by the school and not the Play Boy magazine! No wonder these girls are so warped' their parents promote them being whores and sluts.

It's not so much the belly and the back that are a problem, with the exception of the back being cut so low it borders on showing the crack. Let's not forget the boobs showing everything but the nipples. Doesn't leave much to the imagination. What's wrong with young girls wearing dresses that are stylish, but not showing their goods? Why do 17 & 18 yr. old girls need to dress sexy? When you dress sexy, what kind of message are you sending? You are wanting people to look at your body and you are specifically wanting guys to have sexual thoughts. There is no other reason for dressing sexy.

what the problem is, its that all you old fat ugly women that are to lazy to get off your buts are afraid that your old man might see that all women dont look as bad as you do, I have a daughter in HS and she always looks beautiful in her dresses, and yes prob some I cant wear now, but she can and she does very well. You people kill me talking about these girls dresses, but you probably are some of the same parents that buy little bikinis for your girl to wear all summer, what the crap is the difference? If your old man or son cant look at a girl in a pretty dress without having bad thoughts, you have a lot more problems than a prom. Big deal think about it, just because a girl wears a low cut dress does not mean that she is a slut. My God I bet you women that get on here and talk about all these young girls are so hard to live with, because you are so miserable
leave them alone, My God my daughter can't wear a simple jean skirt to the mall because all the older women give her such mean looks, why, because my goodness they see her leg, really its a leg, wow
most of us know that your teen years are some of your best years, real life begins soon enough, then when they have husbands and kids they can cover up more. I say stay home dont go to prom walk, but I bet your husaband will
wow
