  • No, if she is a stripper, she will be making good enough money so I dont have to support her.

  • Yes... I was a dancer and I've been trying to talk my DH in to starting... If my kids want to do it I'm right behind them. It's great money, it's an excellent way to build self confidence and respect... And it's a lot of fun...

  • serioussifL - I don't think she meant monetary support... She meant would you support their decision...

  • Define support? Would I disown her? No. Would I pay for stripper classes and show up to sit in the front row while waving dollar bills? no.

    It would be clear it's not a profession I approve of.

  • I think I would laugh my ass off! I have boys and I think male strippers are HILARIOUS!

    I would hope that I would have help prepare them for life better, but if they really wanted to be a stripper and didn't listen to my reasons for not doing it, then I would love them the same. I would support them.

  • as for supporting her decision, sure. Strippers make excellent money. Its not something to be ashamed of.

  • I would have trouble picturing my daughter that way, but if she is old enough to have that job and make that decision then I'm not going to heckle her about it.

  • NO, I would hope that I have raised my children to have enough respect for themselves that they would have to be put in a situation where someone is grabbing there ass or degrading them... I would hope they would find a profession that doesn't involve taking there clothes off
