adults dont know how to treat and raise kids, so thats why teenagers like to dress pretty.
why are there teenagers that dont want to go out in the public dressed very attractive, if all human brains works the same? teenagers want attention by being pretty, because they didnt got enough attention in their life, especially from their parents. and school is the only place where teenagers are allowed to go and meet other people, so this is the only chance for them to be dressed pretty. maybe people should make places for teenagers where they could meet each other, dance, talk, no alcohol of course and they could fall in love, but the only place they can do this is in school. maybe people should start thinking and make places where teenagers could meet each and have fun. thats the reason why kids go to school dressed pretty, cause otherwise they arent allowed to go out. which teen wants to be all day at home and listen to parents and siblings nagging? there is nothing wrong to be happy, go out and eat ice cream with your friends. as long as they are safe from dangers, everything should be okay.
I think its nice to hear from kids "I cant wait for school tomorrow", while the reason is to wear new very pretty clothes. dress codes or school uniforms wont do anything good, but there should be limits like no mini skirts, skirts should be long until knees. in my opinion even catholic school girls wears too short skirts. if kids are wearing the clothes they want to, they will be more relaxed and confident cause I can hardly imagine how can someone sit in an uncomfortable uniform for the whole day. by ancient theories school uniforms should make kids more better in school but if I look at how many teenagers drop out or do drugs in england, then I can say that its not working. teenagers should feel comfortable in school, not bored and unhappy. and teenagers wont be less focused in school if they wear pretty clothes. its completely the opposite. maybe adults should stop believing their ancient theories that were never proved and start listening to what psychologists say.
I think the person feels more happy and comfortable if they come to school dressed pretty, not sexy, and someone says "wow you are so beautiful" and then that girl or a boy goes in the class with a smile on their face :] but its parents that are raising kids, not schools. they should teach them where they should be dressed appropriately.
