    If that`s the worst they have to suffer from their parents, I doubt they never had a chance lol.

    They look like they`re enjoying themselves.

    In my Youth Worker time I saw lots of young parents. As much as you can tell from a single photo, these kids actually look like pretty good parents compared to the average (or more correctly, she is a good mother, he might be the boyfriend of the week). Her kids are clean, healthy, and obviously enjoying themselves, so I wouldn`t sum her up as a bad parent at all, from the available evidence.

    They`re under the age of seven. They prolly got into the whole "I wanna look like mommy/daddy" bit. Maybe they actually LIKE it, yanno. I went to my cousin`s house and she was four and she wanted to wear the stuff I wear - mainly black, fishnet, and Converse.

    Kids are capable of liking that stuff.

    Wow who give a crap. This is like posting a picture of a woman with bleached hair and a tan and having her daughter wearing a pink t-shirt and little kid jeans. Yet the only difference is I wouldn`t see many people complain about that.

    HOWEVER I can see where you are coming from. When I have children regardless of how I may dress I would let my kids decide for themselves what they want to wear. A pretty little dress or jacket like that picture shows or a more average type of little kid clothing. It would be up to them to decide. and for all you know the kids may actually like what they are wearing.

    Hell when i was little i used to like going places wearing my ice skating dress because I thought it was "Fairy princess" like. When they grow up they may not even WANT to wear those clothes anymore. And whether they do or don`t is really none of anybody`s business.

    So, the old catch 22...You put people down because they are not as open-minded as you consider yourself to be. Therefore, you are close-minded to them. Thus, making yourself close-minded as well.

    Adorable... My kids will be dressed like that... At least the goth parents didnt dress them up in all fashionista name brand designer clothing. People who pay over $100 for a pair of pants for their children deserve a lot more of the "selfish parents" title than a couple of people dressing their kids in cute children`s goth clothes.

    Its a choice for people!
    I mean when u where kids didnt your parents dress u in what they wanted?
    When those kids are older they may not want to be goth!
    I mean you choose what you want to be dont you?
    They chose to be goth so dont call them selfish for making there own choices!!
    Theyre like any other parents but they just chose to break the mould!
    Be a bit more open minded!
    And agree with Taylor_stone on the Fashonista bit!

    I love how people say things like at least they aren`t sheep or how they just dont want to conform. Well I have some bad news for those people...this is still conforming. Its just conforming to the "goth" lifestyle instead of the "fashionista" style. So both sides get the hell over it and enjoy the picture of the cute kids conforming to gothic lifestyle with their sheep parents.

    Well in their social circles this kind of clothing is "the norm". All of them dress the same therefore they are conforming to this particular lifestyle! There are very few people who truly do not conform to a one style and goths are far from noncomformists.

    The idea of conformism vs nonconformism is ridiculous in personal lives. Jeans and khakis are readily available (go go thrift stores). Jeans and khakis are comfortable. I will wear jeans and khakis. Because I`ve made a logical decision without any outside interference, I`m a sheeple.

    are you implying that there is only one norm? there are places in the world where turbans are the norm yet you wont see too many in omaha nebraska for example. just because they dont look like what you think the norm is, doesnt make them non conformist kiddies, it just makes them kids with parents who want them to dress like all the other goth retards

    As an `alternative` parent, unless my children (at that age) asked me to dress like that, I would never force them too. I mean, yeah as babies, I used to go a bit wild; I used to dress my son up in this black onsie with a spider web on it and black n white striped pants. It was my favorite outfit for him. Looked like a Tim Burton baby :D
    Anyway, who`s to say that the girl and boy didn`t want to dress like that? If mommy and daddy do, why not them? My kids headbang to music because of me, they want pink hair because of me (well, at least my daughters do), they want `mommy pictures` (tattoos) on their arms, they think that a tounge ring just happens and can`t wait for theirs to grow in (thank you hubby for that tall tale B-|). BUT I have seen parents force their children to dress like them. Hell, I HATE Tinkerbell, but I buy the stuff because my one daughter loves her.

    no surprise but still sad. some people shouldn`t have children to begin with. seriously your role as a parent is to nurture protect and guide these children. style is thing of vanity and self expression, the parents are clearly pushing this onto their kids so that their friends will say "omg look at what cool parents you are by letting them dress like their douchbag parents" let kids be kids don`t put crazy ideas in their heads yet, there is no reason to goth out children except for their parents own ego

    In all honesty, they look adorable, especially the little girl. They are more covered up than most parents cover their children, I see absolutely nothing wrong with this. I would rather my child wear all black, than go to a church to be brainwashed ANY DAY. If the parents were REALLY selfish, they wouldn`t let the children even be there, part of the family. Besides, I know my child likes wearing my clothes. Might as well let them look like whatever they want, it isn`t harming anyone.

    i don`t understand why having faith is now looked down upon? i think the media does more brainwashing than anything else. those kids wouldnt even know where to find clothes like that without mom and dad, little kids are driven by a need to belong, that`s why everyone wants to be "cool" at that age. its clearly being pushed on them. let them be rebels when they want to be when they are teens and begin to think on their own. kids want to dress like their parents because they mimic what they see, why not give them a proper example?

    it looks to be a gathering of goths, where goth ideals can be established much like church for churchgoers. now that we have an even ground to speak on church for the most part tries to teach people life lessons and promotes community and family values. what does being goth promote? read some lyrics or study a bit on the goth lifestyle. i don`t think thats a place for children and i don`t think they`ll learn anything positive there.

    Oceanbeast its a matter of personal opinion that`s all I personally don`t understand why you felt the need to attack the nuse just for a simple opinionated post, it doesn`t mean everyone is like that. Plus kids like to play dressup and at their ages they more then likely don`t even realize what is going on their just having fun. Besides all the evil adult created problems with this, I think these kids are going to be just fine, and they do look really cute all dressed up like that.

    how can you now see that this is a direct influence from their parents? its bad parenting, i could understand if it was a novelty like Halloween or something but you should se the best examples for your children. goth not being one of them, for what it stands for. you are introducing them into a world that is full of adult content, and even if not exposed at that age can lead them down that path. if you want to be counter culture go ahead, but at least wait till the kid grows up to expose them. we have all been to rock concerts and we know people are out there drinking smoking and fornicating. thats fine when you are an adult but its not good parenting

SO WHAT?!?! I`d expect a hiphop couple to do the same with THEIR kids, or a country couple.... We ALL have different ways and beliefs. Who are you to judge?

    oceanbeast: there is no such thing as "goth values". It`s up to the individual to work out their own values. I`ve known goths from all walks of life and all religions.

    You can`t know what values these people hold just based on how they dress.

    And clearly, you have no kids of your own, or you`d know if they kids didn`t like the clothes they wouldn`t wear them.

    like i said if it is a novelty or celebratory thing to dress them up that`s totally different. i don`t find hip hop culture to be too child friendly either. even in the most intellectual of rappers like immortal technique and jedi mind tricks there is a certain element of violence that children need not be exposed to. to each their own but this is a forum for discussion so don`t attack me for having a different view than yourself. i am not the only one out there. attacking me makes you the ignorant one buddy
