From Monica, child's age 13
My daughter will be a freshman this Fall, and she's beginning to take an interest in clothes. Although she is overweight, she is very confident, self-assured, good natured, and she has many good friends. She'll very infrequently make remarks about her "skinny" friends which leads me to believe that her weight does bother her. She's never admitted it to me. There is one area in her life that absolutely bothers her: there are no "cute clothes" in her size. She's now wearing a 16 petite (or short). There really is nothing for her in teen shops. It is so sad to go shopping with her, we end up in the Misses Plus sizes sometimes. I assume my daughter is not the only experiencing this, how do you handle this? I'm tempted to hire a seamstress for next year's formal dance at school. Any suggestions?
