“Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.”  That’s philosopher and poet Henry David Thoreau wrote that.  And though it’s not known how fashionable Thoreau was while hanging out around Walden pond, the differences between parents and kids on what’s appropriate to wear … can be vast.  

One person who’s looked at this is Zoey Washington.  She’s a fashion editor and CEO of the company LITTLEbird, a fashion consulting service for the teen and tween demographic.  Sheilah Kast talks with her about how to handle disputes on clothign with kids.
