Tinokos Beis Raban

Wow, I was just blown away by yet another inspirational story concerning the temimus (innocence) of a child.

My neighbor related the story to me as follows:

"My four year old daughter loves to sit in the window and hang her legs out through the bars. Well, I saw her doing this with her nightgown, without any socks or anything. I said to her, "It's not tznius (modest) to have your legs dangling out of the window like that. Everyone can see them..."

My daughter's answer was, "Ima, can't we pretend that I am wearing skin color stockings like you wear?"
"Wow," says my neighbor, shaking her head in disbelief. "What a wake up call."

My neighbor has now begun wearing black thick socks as I do.
