What Is Your Daughter Wearing

When summers get hot,young girls (and it seems they are getting younger and younger) are wearing less and less. Today on my way from work, saw these 14/15-year-olds out and about in outfits that did not cover much.I'm not judgemental or anything like that, l also put on less fabric when it`s hot,but should parents accept teens going out half naked? We had discussions here if such outfits should be allowed in schools last year,l dont know how it ended but parents should have some say how teen girls go out. I know some will not agree but this is how l feel,you do not want some sleazy person looking at your 13-year-old in the wrong way because of how she`s dressed.

They show up to school looking like that as well. I won't let them in my classroom looking like that. I make them go change.

@NJChicaa Atleast in the classrooms they are safe.They had heated debate here (last year or the year before) if students should be let in classrooms in indecent outfits, not sure how it ended.

It is disgusting how there are so many older men looking at young children that way. Seems to be more and more like that lately.

@gudheart These men are human,they are only looking at what has been put on display.

Some parents may be okay with their kids wearing clothes that barely cover much, but I'm not. At the moment, my kids are at the age where we still have a large say in their clothes, but when they hit those teenage years, I still won't let them go out looking like a **** (you can fill the blank). Sorry, but I want my kids to look decent and wear clothes that are appropriate, no matter their age. At the end of the day, I am still their mom. They don't have to like it, but it's just how I feel.

I know that my parents would have never let me out wearing so little fabric on my body. In my opinion is wrong, they should dress a little more. The parents should keep an eye on them instead of complaining when rapes happen.

@LadyDuck I totally agree with you Anna, l feel some parents are too busy to care how their kids go out, never mind if they are dressed in very *dangerous* outfits

@miniam I know that some say that you have the right to dress like you want and to be respect, but this is the theory. Throw a steak to a hungry lion and pretend that he does not touch it. People should be more realistic and parents more caring.

Unfortunately finding attractive reasonably modest clothing can be a bit challenging. Both of my girls dress modestly, but most shorts, skirts and dresses are way too short and the alternatives are usually in the other extreme.

@Platespinner It`s ok for girls to wear shorts or mini dresses,but it`s not ok for any girl to wear a mini dress that l see her privates when she is sitting opposite me,or short enough jeans shorts tht her bum cheeks are hanging out

@miniam Unfortunately most of what is available is precisely what you describe. Buy clothes for my girls has been MUCH more difficult than buying clothes for my boys. They always dress decently but finding clothes that allow them to stick within our family rules is challenging. And our rules aren't that strict. Most of the mini-dresses and skirts off-the-rack these days simply don't leave anything to the imagination. Besides which, too many girls haven't been taught to keep their knees together when sitting, or to bend from the knees when they pick things up from the floor.

I have seen little girls in very skimpy outfits. You can wear summer clothing without it being sexualized and I think that parents are to blame for not enforcing decency standards in their daughters.

@BelleStarr How/why would a parent buy such an outfit in the first place?

@miniam I know, I always dressed my daughter modestly, she had shorts and tank tops but nothing revealing.

I agree. I feel that a lot of clothes now a days are made to be skimpy, less fabric, revealing. To the beach it is okay or the pool. But in general public area I cannot.

@miniam Sometimes the kids will buy on their own without their parents knowledge.

I agree. Our schools have rules, but it is up to the parents. Many of these girls change into slutty clothes once they leave the house!

I agree with you completely. Young girls shouldn't be going around with next to nothing on. No wonder there are so many assaults.

This brings to mind that video I saw on FB. The chunky middle aged Dad imitating his daughter- she showed off her midriff, he showed off his etc. Hysterical and got the message said well.

In all ages, young people have tried to dress differently than their elders. I would need a picture to reply exactly your post. But I remember when I was young and the mini skirt came into being. It was the time of Mary Quant (now Dame Mary Quant), model Twiggy and The Beatles (parents did not like them because of their long hair). Now everyone is tattooed and they have earrings everywhere. If I were a parent, I would prefer they wore scant clothes (they can outgrow that) to being tattooed completly for life.

@marguicha Can see your point, l dont know how it is in Chile, but in the summer here,it`S common to see Bu**** cheeks hanging out from some mono skirt,remember these are young people using public transport, our buses and trains have seats so people seat facing each other, it gets very uncomfortable when one of these girls are sitting next to you, l dont want to sit and be looking at someone`s privates

There are so many types of parents and yeah, here are the less interested ones. We can't educate their girls what being decent means...

I agree that it could create a dangerous situation if a young girl is scantily dressed. Parents need to be the ones who make the rules regarding appropriate dress, but I do believe some parents are not around enough to supervise their girls' attire. I suppose dressing appropriately should be taught as early as possible.

Thank goodness I don't have a daughter lol! Seriously, I wouldn't allow my daughter, if i had one to dress up like that. The girls in my son's schools don't wear such clothes at all. The school is very strict about the dress code when they're having parties at school. They wear uniforms on school days.

Glad you use uniforms, we dont here
