Viewpoint: Parents lead by example

Posted: Updated:

Lee County High made national news recently, with its prom dress code.

The school enacted and enforced rules that prevented teen girls from wearing plunging necklines and super-short dresses.

While some disagree with the policy, we think it's appropriate.

But the burden shouldn't be on the school to make sure teen girls aren't "showing it all."

Where are the parents? Mothers, fathers, any adult guardian should make sure a teen is appropriately dressed, before he or she leaves the house.

And this doesn't just apply to proms!

Come on, adults. Set a good example, and reinforce in your child that she doesn't have to dress trashy to have a good time, make friends, or be accepted.

Class trumps trash any day!
