We know a Prom a right of passage for a teenager to experiences in high school.
That right of passage is either at their Jr. Prom or their senior prom, but either way, it’s a tradition that a teenager experiences.
The latest trend in Proms are for the Pre-kidergarten children.
Yes, that’s right, parent sending their Pre-K baby’s to their prom nights in limousines, tuxedos, full length gowns with tiaras and dates.

One school that is participants of this new tradition is in Eagle Pass, Texas. This school sent home a letter to the pre-k parents and asked that they send their little ones in “formal attire” to the Prom night.
So dressed to impressed, one pint sized was sent in a custom-made sit, while another was sent in a floor-lenght gown.
One child’s auntie took to Twitter saying, “When your niece is off to her Pre-K prom and she has 3 dates waiting for her. They grow up so fast.” and then she tweeted again saying, “So my niece graduated and after her 3 dates she had to prom she picked Subesh as her boyfriend.”
Dr. Sanam Hafeez, child psychology, told CBS New York, “Some of the pictures that I saw were low-cut gowns, you know, getting their hair done, putting makeup on.”
She’s saying that doing a prom so early in their life could put a lot of pressure on them and could cause some insecurities like you see in teenagers.
She even said, “That’s the other thing, the king and queen, like you’re basically identifying one or tow children saying they’re better than you now. Older 17, 18, it’s still tough at that age. Can you imagine at age 5 you are looking at the other kids going, ‘Why is he better than me?'”
What do you think, would you send your pre-k child to a prom night in limo, tux or even gown and let them have little dates?
