Dressing Slutty for Halloween
"I've got to tell my girl no, too. I'm concerned and so are my friends. All these girls want is to dress like sluts."
So powerful is the parental need to retain little-girl innocence, at least for a while, that many people are happy to allow their daughters to wear gory and scary costumes instead of sexy ones.
"She wants to be the Bride of Chucky," Lisa Barilaro of Center City says of daughter Taylor, 6.
"I tried to talk her out of it, but I couldn't. I thought at first it was too scary, but then I was more worried she'd find a costume that was provocative. Scary is better."
