Most parents have no clue how to raise a decent child. I can tell by half the comments.
I would be just as concerned if she was wearing baggy clothes and long sleeves. So many parents want to shame their daughters into hating their body and their sexuality. Because heaven forbid they find a decent partner at any age.
I would talk to my daughter about how to dress. If she wears that stuff, that's fine, so long as she respects herself and her body. If she wears them for herself that's great, if she wears them for someone else (be it a guy or to impress her peers), that's a concern. Fashion should be about self-expression, confidence and style, not about pleasing others or adhering. She should be allowed to find her identity and I should help.
Children shouldn't just be allowed to be children. They need guidance, role models, life skills, to be taught how to attract a good partner. They need to be aware and ready for the real world, not coddled and controlled and disrespected til they're 18. They give back what you give them and I am the window from which my child sees.
If I've raised a good kid, they will either not worry about wearing sexy clothes, or they'll wear them solely for themselves. Either is fine. What matters is that a person is comfortable in their own skin.
Hell no! No 13 year old has any excuse to wear them. Especially thongs. That's disgusting. Maybe 15 or 16 is ok for cheekys if they're in locker room situations where girls night make fun of granny panties.
Yes. It is really unfortunate that these types of underwear have become so sexualized, and that (even from reading just a handful of answers on this question) people feel the need to sexualize teenagers based on what they're wearing. I started wearing thongs when I was about 14 years old. My school uniform pants were really bad for showing underwear lines, and they were beige so anything coloured/bright coloured would show right through them. I bought my first pair myself and rid them from my mother because I was nervous that she would think I was trying to be "sexy" (which is completely ridiculous now that I think about this as an adult. There is NOTHING sexual about underwear, especially on someone so young. Anyone who is saying (and I've only read the comments from males) saying that it is inappropriate for a young teen, YOU are the one sexualizing HER body. Someone's underwear does NOT determine who she sleeps with, how sexual she is, etc. Cannot even believe I had to say all of that, the comments here are ridiculous.
I bought my first thing when I was like 12 because my mom suggested it. It's underwear! If it's comfortable that's all that matters, it's not like anyone is going to be seeing them, especially if you're 13.
No, children should be children. There really is other answer in my opinion. 13 year old girls should be playing with friends, playing sports, reading books, studying for school. The last thing a 13 year should be doing is wearing clothing that aren't age appropriate and showing any part of their butts, stomach, or chest.
hell yea!!! whoohooooo asses everywhere!!! lol why not? she's the one wearing it it's not like she's gonna show it to someone until she's at least 16- ish so why not? to some girls it's really comfortable and it make them feel sexy and beautiful! so why not?
Yes just because you wear a type of underwear doesn't mean it's to let other people see it. I wear thongs for dance because all other underwear has panty lines and isn't high cut enough for leotards. They're more comfortable also.
I didn't start wearing thongs till i was 16 (almost 17) so I'd say no to both. She's too young. Although I understand why she would want to wear a thong. It's because they don't show panty lines through leggings and yoga pants... But cheekies? Those are even more noticeable than regular panties!
