Addressing miss-matched and odd combinations of clothing choices is not a battle this mother chooses to have with her daughter. Instead, she applauds her daughter's right to make choices about her personal identity. In a society that is continually dictating how women should dress, look and act, here is a viewpoint on fostering power in a child's choice making. By allowing her daughter's opinion on how she will look be more important than others, the author feels she is helping her daughter build a positive body image and powerful decision making skills.
