This is something like how my 14 year old son wants to dress. At least this is how he keeps talking about dressing.
He is driving me insane with all his what ifs.
Here is his list that he keeps asking about:
1. What if I get a mohawk and color it half blue half black?
2. What if I get my lip and brow pierced?
3. What if I get tattooed all over?
4. What if I grow my hair past my shoulders w/ blonde tips?
5. What if I only wear black and I get all Emo pasty?
6. What if I tattoo the side of my head?
7. What if I was Goth w/ make-up and earrings up my ears?
He brings these what ifs up all the time. He talks about the Goth and Emo styles all the time. Enough!
This is such the opposite of how I grew up and how he was dressed as a young boy. I grew up with Polo, Calvin and Izod. I dressed my son in Polo, Izod and Gap. Where is this coming from? His friends don't dress Goth or Emo. Really, I'm at a loss as to where this is coming from.
Now, I am not against freedom of expression or wanting to express yourself with fashion. It's just that I don't like the Goth or Emo look. I don't want my son shaving his head, wearing a mohawk, or piercing his face. And I don't want him getting all pasty and wearing all black.
I want him to keep dressing in Polo and Gap. I want him to keep looking like this...
There isn't anything wrong with this look. It's clean, polished and educated looking. People will think better of my son looking like the guy in the above pic then the guy in the first pic. That's just how it goes in this world. I didn't make up the rules. Of course, if my son joins a band, gets signed to a major label and becomes a successful musician, then I guess he can look like Johnny Rotten.
