Sexy Halloween Costumes? Not for my kids.

I adore having little girls. Many times I get lost in their beauty, am amazed at their innocence and trust, and revel at their childlike faith. I am captivated by the precious gifts before me, and I take their future and safety very seriously. I realize a few things after being bombarded with images of sexy Halloween costumes.

For one, I am solely responsible for their virtue.

I cannot place the task on their friend’s mom or even my own family, and while I have a few trusted family members who help me with their care, I am aware that in the end it is my responsibility to raise my girls right, protect them from any and all harm, and lead them towards a bright and fulfilling future. While there are so many factors that could arise that are out of my control, there are still many issues that I can have a huge hand in to ensure the outcome is more likely a positive one for them.

Sexy Halloween Costumes


It’s not cute.

While adult versions of sexy Halloween costumes have been standard for years, those designed for tweens, and even young girls, have recently begun displaying a sexualized edge. A quick Google search returns page after page of costumes with miniskirts, bared bellies or strapless tops, even when such choices are completely ridiculous. Do we really need our 10-year olds to wear fishnet stockings?
