Fashion preferences change with every generation. What parents think is trendy might not seem so appealing to the kids. So, there's always a difference in opinion between two generations. But Amy Jackson, a mom on TikTok who goes by @amyjackson9213, decided not to stay in the way of her daughter's fashion choices. Last year, she posted a video of her daughter unboxing and trying on the Homecoming dress she always wanted. It sparked a debate online and many users disapproved of the mom's decision to buy that dress. But Jackson silenced them all with a sassy comeback.

In the controversial video, Jackson revealed her daughter's excitement as she unboxed her favorite Sherri Hill corset dress, which was on backorder for so long. The daughter tried on the black dress and twirled around flaunting it with joy. This video went viral with over 525K views and many loved the girl's style. However, many commented on how the dress was "inappropriate" and "too revealing," particularly, a user named @Jenn's comment was too insensitive and said, "This is way too revealing. I would not let my daughter wear this to a dance. Looks like bedroom attire to me. Please don't let her wear this Amy."

As a response to that comment, Jackson posted another video where she shunned the negative comments with a wisecrack. "You have to understand that this new style nowadays is not the style that we used to have back in our day," said the mom. She added that kids these days love wearing low-cut or short dresses or the ones with big slits to homecoming, which is far different from the choices of her time. She emphasized that such dresses are gorgeous too and that she didn't have a problem with them. "I am not going to stop her from wearing something that she wants to wear that fits in with the rest of her peer group," the mom said.

Jackson pointed out that though she respected the opinions of people who disapproved of the dress, they needed to respect her choice too. "I have bought this dress for her, so, obviously, I'm okay with it. I'm going to let her wear it," she said. The mom also mentioned that she and her daughter were waiting for this dress to be back in stock and that the girl was too excited when it finally arrived. "She's gonna look beautiful in it," said the supportive mom. "At the end of the day, I am her mom and I don't care if anybody likes it or if anybody has something to say because it has nothing to do with you. The only person it has to do with is me and her and I approve."

A lot of reassuring comments poured in, lauding the mom for standing up for her daughter's choices. "Ignore the haters. She looks amazing! As long as she is confident and loves it that's all that matters," commented @fromhill2hall. "Yes! I'm glad there are parents who remember what it's like being a young woman/teen and wanting to stay in style! And it's all so cute," wrote @_mrsgoodies. "Every word you said! Styles are not what they used to be. Your daughter will be beautiful no matter what she wears because she looks like you," commented @crystalsixenglish.
