A Canadian couple, Jamie and Sadie Stonehouse from Winnipeg were left shocked after their 3-year-old daughter was banned from wearing strappy sundress because it’s not suitable for pre-school.
The problem began on Wednesday when temperatures in Winnipeg soared to more than 86F, and Lola’s mum picked out a little pink and orange sundress complete with spaghetti straps for her daughter because of the hot weather.
After sending their daughter to school, The Little Years Nursery School reportedly sent a text to the parents about their little girl’s outfit telling them she should not wear it to the daycare again.
According to the school officials, if she wanted to wear the dress again, Lola would need to wear a t-shirt underneath it, and the straps need to be at least two inches wide.
Speaking about the incident in an interview with CTV News, the couple said they plan to stick to the nursery school rules but hope the school officials review its policy.
‘I don’t think any girl should have to worry about how much shoulder she’s exposing when she dresses to go to school or anywhere else. At any age,’ said Sadie.
‘She’s a child. Innocence is innocence and we’re the only ones who can give it to them,’ said husband Jamie.
