  • NO.....

    I blame society for this.. look at the new BRATZ dolls... they look like fuckin hookers... tight pair of jeans and a tank is one thing.. booty shorts? hell no

  • Are they really short shorts sort of thing?
    If so I wouldn't - I hate my children wearing anything that makes them look like adults, even teenagers...

    But that's just my opinion. Good luck in whatever you choose to do momma.

  • i wouldn't, how old is she? does she have nice features to wear such attire? i think provacative clothing is really just asking for trouble, but that is purely my opinion...

  • Out of the house? I know there will come a day when my daughter wants to wear something in public that I don't approve of, I just hope it's not too soon.

  • No way in hell.... if she is eighteen or over and living under her roof ask her if she is earning extra money on the pole or the corner.....

    I have 17 year old son and his opinion of these girls can be summed up in one word..............WHORE.

  • If I may tell you this point of view. My husband has a sister and a mother that dress very very provacative. I asked him what he thought of it and said he thinks its great and has no problem with it. I asked him if his teenage daughter wanted to dress like that and he said " HECK NO, I know and hear how guys think especially about teen girls." If you dont mind men oggling your daughter I guess go for it, but she is sending the wrong message.
