I look for things that are age appropriate--not always easy to do.
Cover their bodies--I call it in the arm test, they have to be able to lift their arms and not bare their entire body.

You get the picture. I totally get the whole "retro look", but I guess what I can't get over is that at one time the peace symbol stood for being "anti-war", and our family isn't anti-war. We're getting ready to ship Gunner off again to Afghanistan, and I just can't get on board with this trend.
I'm probably just overreacting, and maybe people don't view the peace symbol in the same light that I do.
But, my kids won't be wearing them to school this fall.
