Fifth grade graduation, when most children are aged around ten years old, is one of the first times a young girl gets dressed up for an event. Due to the young age of the children, cute ball dresses would be most appropriate - dresses that they themselves love; the children should feel like princesses. The dresses should not be short or in any way designed to be attractive to boys; this would be highly inappropriate. In addition, the dress should not be too expensive and the focus of the night should not be on the dress, for a number of reasons:
• Children these days are being sexualized at a very young age, and this is affecting their emotional development in a negative way.
• Young girls should not be learning that the way you dress is more important than anything else. Instead, other interests should be focused upon.
• Girls should not be encouraged to compare dresses and the clothes they wear, as this could make some children outcasts; not all parents can afford to dress their children in the latest designer clothes.
Of course, it is a special night for your young girl, but remember: She is still a child, and should not be exposed to ideas that can be damaging when she is so young. Under no circumstances should low-cut dresses or high heels be worn. If you go looking for a dress, aim to keep the shopping trip fun and light-hearted. Too much time spent in front of mirrors can be detrimental to the development of young girls who should be out playing and having fun with friends.
I think you and your mom should go shopping and find a dress that fits your personality
I suggest a cute pink, yellow or purple girly dress that isn't too short or too long, try a knee length dress. Something appropriate for the age group that doesn't involve V necks or is strapless. A cute, adorable, flattering dress, that is just plain perfect for your little girl! Have fun at the graduation!! ♥
I hope I helped!
I think you and your parents should go buy a dress at a shop that sells dresses because if you buy it online you won't now how it really fits on you!
Lucky I never had 5th grade grad but don't go to formal save that for grade 6 pink is you colour? You should stick with that wear a nice sundress with flats cute!!!
Some thing nice but not over dressy but not under dressy make sure that you wear somthing appropriot for your age
I remember there were guidlines at mine which I agreed with. Your dress should be at least knee length with straps that are at least 1 1/2 inch wide. No strapless. You want to be age appropriate because girls ARE getting too sexual too early.
Something with sleeves and without a V neck or deep cut top.
I think you should wear either a black or red dress.
I don't know maybe a nice bright color like yellow with brown?
I don't know figure it out!!
