I saw a young girl of about 8-10 earing a skimpy dress simply to show off her tatoos at the back of her back going to her buttocks and of glance with the glances of grown up men who could want to see properly. This girl is jus begining to flower - I hope you understand what I mean and here she wants to flaunt what shes got to keep properly and her wonder where are her parents. Parents we need to sit up here. Let say something.

I dont know where you saw this but in North America there is NO WAY a child of that age would be actually tattooed...Its VERY illegal..Maybe what you saw was one of those temporary tats but I would be very very suprised if it was an actual tattoo..I would be very disgusted too..I'm all for tats and piercings in fact I have some and will be taking my kids to get their first ones when they are old enough but a child that age, thats just twisted IMO..

It's only illegal without written parental consent. If the parent signs a paper, a kid of any age can have a tattoo. My got m first one at 14, my brother was 13. And the lady who did ours had kids 7 and 8 with two or three of them.

Even if it is a permanent or temporary one put in an awkward place...! and then they should try piercing their eye balls... that will create more awareness

NO that's not decent . I will never let my child do these kinds of crap. Children don't understand these things they just saw something appealing and they want to go for it without even thinking about the consequences that's where role of parents come.We all want our children to grow up decently and achieve something great so that once they reach our age they will be proud of their parent (us) for that decision we took for them on that particular day. That changed their life for ever other wise there will only be regret for both kids and the parents for not choosing what was right. And guess what i don't want to be the one with the regrets.What about you ?

I can feel you. What is not decent can never get another name its simply not decent. As I said earlier its a must for us as parents to be able to guide our kids to move in the right direction. There might have been area in our past lives in which we have made mistake (s) it is our dutiy not to let our kids do the same, simply by being a good example for them, so they will not regret in their latter lifes. Thanks

Unfortunately there is nothing any one can do about the way other people raise their kids. ALl we can do is educate them, and raise our own to the best of our ability. I wouldn't allow the dressing, but I don't have a problem with tattooes. I see them as art, and a way for a person to creatively express themselves without harming anyone else. I have a few, so I would look like a hypocrite if I told any of my kids no. BUT, I ha to wait till I was 14, so will my kids. AND, my mother had a long talk (well several actually) with me about the picture I was going to chose, where I would have it, and for what reasons I wanted it. After she realized that I was making a wise, informed decision, she allowed me to get it...and even paid for it. She was there with me, and had a person she knew and trusted do the artwork. That is the same way my children will be allowed.

Well, raising our kids to the best of our ability matters but where we might have funbled in the past we should not let our kids too take the part and actally coming out to let them know that we got wrong then matters thats when we are doing it beyond our ability. You raised a good point I hope others will just be there for there kids as your mum was and you too to your kids. Thanks

That is messed up. I would never allow my child to have tattoo's at that young age. Not to mention allow her to wear something that does not look appropiate. If its made for an older woman my daughter does not wear it. Maybe I am just conservative but my daughter wears t-shirts and jeans 99% of the time, and if not jeans then slacks or dress pants. What gets me is that a child of that age would have tattoo's. Maybe being from the USA is why I feel the way I do. Any way thanks for sharing this discussion.

Sorry about this but this people think that is waht is happenning in the US ( a free) country where you can do what you want. Wearing decent jeans is okay but there are various kind of jeand now that it covers only your thigh and not the right place, that make every cat and dog look at ones part under the guise of designer jeans! Thanks for sharing.

That is insane! I could never allow my child to have a tattoo, unless it was one of those temporary ones, and it wouldn't be on her back. On top of that she would not be wearing clothes that show of any part of her bopdy. being 8 or 10 doesn't mean she is allowed to wear such clothes, not even when she is 15 or 16. I still don't flaunt what God gave me.

I would certainly not allow my kids have a tattoo. Boy or girl no matter what age they are at. Of course I could not stop them once they are of a certain age, but I would certainly voice out my dislike for it if they ever get one. Here in our country, disobey your parents at that age would get you serious trouble on the behind. I mean they would get spank.

Hah...not only in your country friend...in Africa- Nigeria where i come from we teach values...if they disobey...not spanked alone but flogged and it has helped us...in building right values.

Wow, what? Wait? She's 8-10 years old and she has a tattoo period. Oh wow, I would first of all, so not let my daughter or son get a tattoo at such a young age. Here you can't have one till you're 18 unless consent by a parent. And for any parent to allow their child at such a young age to have a tattoo, wow. Unless it was one of those stick ons. But even then, I would not allow them to put a stick on where this little girl had her tattoo at. She would have to wait till she or he was 18 and possibly out of the house to get a tattoo.

Well first of all I'm hoping that it wasn't a real tattoo that you saw! A child that young shouldn't have them in my opinion. I'm not against them as I have one, my husband has some and all my kids (older ones have them). I just signed papers for my 17 year old to get one (she will be 18 in 2 months) but for someone that young in my house? NEVER! As for the way she was dressed NO WAY! My kids wear nothing that is that revealing. I don't understand the need to dress that way, not even for an adult. There is such a thing as dressing sexy compared to dressing like trash. Bad thing is that we cant tell other people how to raise their kids or be parents.

She was walking as she knew people were looking at her. This kids are cautious of their environment. I was told later that it might be a source of advert, usuing such...!

I would definetly not allow her. No Tatoo, no piercing (except ears), no hair dying. kids this age are in need of finding a personality, they copy what they see. We have to explain them them "not everythin that shines is gold", with respect and friendly. If it does not help. than we become more aggresive:take TV, give time-out, so on. But in no circumstances, they are to be aloud to do this. After 18, it's their choice.

I agree with you ladynetz. We have to lay a landmark by the time they are 18 at least they would have some values to go alng with, good values.

Well maybe you can make yourself clearer more. If I could get you right fathers too read newa and see and of course knows the latest trends but a trend that is becoming irresponsible may not and should not be tolorated. Fathers are suppose to be the eyes of the family but situation have turn a lot of fathers to bum seaters. Good enough a lot of mothers have address this discussion and hopefully a lot more will and they have spoken from the mothers point of views. Remember women are different from Mothers.

That is inapropiate. On the parents part that is unresponsible. The child is too young. The girl dressing like that probably has a lot of men staring at her and that is disgusting. She could possibly has a higher risk of gettign abducted.

May her parents do not know about this girl or they even like tatoos, most of the parents do not like tatoos they like their children to travel in a correct path. Now a days children are beeing spoiled my the media and the surrounding enviroment, i hope it is the duty of the parents to look after.

I have tattoos and I would never allow my children to get tattoos until they were 18 which is the legal age here in Michigan USA to get one. I actually went to get another tattoo the other day and my 19 year old wanted one also. Well she doesnt have her drivers license yet and we didnt get her state id, anyway I brought her birth certificate with me to prove her age..they wouldnt do it. They said it had to be a pictured state id because they could get into trouble and spend 90 days in jail. But I think a child has no business getting a tattoo, they are too young to make such a descision that is going to be there for the rest of their life. My gosh taking care of a tattoo the first days is a big responsibility in itself. Crazy parents to even want their child flaunting their body like that! Geez..And I had a fit when my 20 year old baught my 7 year old a sports bra Thinking she was way to young ...LOL
