Because maybe those other girls would not get the message in that way, the way this woman got the message? Hashem knows what works for who and the right time...

  Children being punished

Hashem will send messages to the parent through their children at times. In this case, God did so not only for the benefit of the parent, but also the child who does not want such serious sins as lack of modesty from such a tender age.


God sends messages according to the level of a person. Clearly, He expected Rivka to know better and pay more attention according to her level. The Torah is a guide to life It is in our best interest to keep it -a sick soul is a sick body even if we cannot see it.

Many people have the mistaken opinion that socks are a stringency. I know this very well, since that is what I was taught way back when!


However, this is not true and all the poskim are very strict about the absolute halachic requirement for socks that are not opaque (should not be able to see veins or hair) and not skin colored (it must be clear that the woman is wearing socks/stockings).


The Posek for our yeshiva insists that girls must have their legs fully covered already by age 3!

Punishing a child for the mother's carelessness? I don't think so!

  Why aren't other girls sick too?

I follow your logic, but, if what you say is true, then shouldn't all the other girls who dress immodestly also be going through their own troubles? The Rav's answer obviously worked for your daughter, but what about the other seemingly healthy, carefree less modest girls? Why don't they get sick? Shalom.

  i don't get the socks thing
is it really the halachah that a woman must cover her feet with socks? I thought that was a stringency, not halachah. Why was your Rav so adamant about socks? Is HaShem punishing your daughter for not following stringencies above halachah?

  tznius means looking beautiful
I just wanted to add something that I heard the Melitzer Rebetzin said. She said that with Tznius in girls as well as women it is very important to like the clothes that you are wearing, put a little extra money and time into really feeling that you are dressing like a princess.
