It used to be that moms couldn’t even be seen in the mall parking lot with their teens, often doing a drop-off a few blocks away. Now, moms and teens are (gasp!) shopping in some of the same stores and even borrowing items from each other’s closets. Gone are the days when prom dress shopping was a nightmare day in which moms protectively guarded their credit cards, refusing to pay for the “dress” the teen insisted was in style and that her other friends were all allowed to wear.
