  • Of course not. That's only acceptable if you're at the beach or swimming pool, but going around the city dressed like that is completely unacceptable.
    I will teach my daughter to know how to present herself in a positive way.

  • Absolutely would not. As a parent it's my job to teach her to reapect herself and her body, and that is she is freakin gorgeous without having to show off her entire body to the world.

      Well if it's a hot day it isn't necessarily about "showing off her body".
      I mean would you have a problem with your son walking around with his shirt off outside?

  • Yes. I cannot believe that I am saying that, but yes. And I am one of the most conservative members on this board. I think that as a parent, you need to pick and choose your battles. Ideally I would not want my daughter to dress like that, but more than anything I want her to remain a virgin until marriage and trust me on more important matters like the utter depravity of teenage males who will inevitably hurt her. That said, I would be more willing to turn a blind eye to things that other parents may freak out about. I would know that it is because she wants to feel sexy and have fun with the opposite sex, but I would be sure to teach her that there is such a thing as boundaries, and that sexy fun has to remain just that: sexy fun. She cannot derive her values or sense of self from it.

      There's other ways for a girl to feel sexy, and as far as sexy fun is concerned, that normally always leads to sex down the road

    • 3mo

      It is just, how do you find that balance between being a good parent and being over controlling? I want my daughter to respect what I teach her, and it seems that the stricter you are, the less seriously girls take you.

  • Yes. Because that is swimwear, and not inappropriate.
    I'd love more angles from that pic, because if we had them, we'd likely see she was either at, coming, or going to, a beach.

  • Depends. Depends on the purpose and intention the teenager had with that outfit. If the intention was to show a certain style or something or something she thought was pretty aesthetically, then sure I would let her. If the intention was to show her body and put it on display for the pure sake of bringing attention, then I wouldn't let her, as I do not defend narcissism and self-centered behavior.

    • 3mo

      Something is sexualized because of how other people see it. Doesn't mean we should stop wearing it, people need to change their mentality.

    • 3mo

      Wrong. It's sexually provocative because she is displaying her body and highlighting her assets.

  • I think no matter what that little cutie wears she's jail bait. Not her fault - she's blessed with a womanly body at such a young age. I'd be flipping out if I was her Dad

  • No. Dressing like a slut will not attract good quality guy's. It is crazy that girls think they will attract a good guy with this behavior. It's crazy to sexually objectify yourself and expect to attract a guy that will not do the same.

      @cavmanier true.. and I won't blame the guys..

  • I mean...

    I dress like that on my property/at the beach/on vacation all the time.

    Plus... if she could pull it off and was a mature, responsible person and didn't wear it like... in the grocery store or at church or to school or something... then I don't care.

    Also... what kind of teenager? Like...15 and under? Probably not. Sixteen and over? Sure. And if she were 18 or 19 (technically still teenagers) I kind of have no business telling her how to dress. Ya know?

    The only time that's acceptable in my eyes is when you're going swimming.

      you can definitely do something about it regardless of age if she lives in your house. you just say she's not allowed out of the house until she changes.

  • If she wanted to wear this sort of outfit as casual wear, she would need to sit down with me and tell me why, and if she understands the image she is putting out for herself. And, unfortunately, if she is still very young, id tell her to put a tshirt on no matter how good her argument is. Way too young for this kind of behavior, and teen pregnancies are still a thing you know. And the age seems to get younger these days.

  • My mother would not definitely unless I was going to the pool and then it would be iffy. I wouldn't myself because I'm more of a prude (I'm quite self-conscious) but if she is comfortable in her choice and isn't seeking any negative attention I believe it would be reasonable for her to wear it as long as it was of her parents consent.
