A mom goes to great lengths to make longer shorts for her daughter

It’s summer, so the kids stores are stocked with piles of shorts. Sharon Choksi, who has a son and a daughter, noticed a disturbing trend: girls tend to be larger than boys until about 9, but girls’ clothing is far smaller than boys’.
