You are right, family customs are different for everyone. Thank you for sharing.

Interesting questions. Our family customs for girls was no nylons, lipstick, shaving legs, or earrings until we were sixteen. (to say nothing about today's body piercings and tattoos!) Proper clothing for girls was mid-calf skirts/dresses, cotton underwear, buttoned up blouses with at least short sleeves, and shoes with flat soles or at most a wedge. Shorts were bermuda style or pedal pushers. The intent here was to dress modestly. I wonder where that went?!

A few writing tips: double check spelling and punctuation. Enjoyed your thoughts!
