Can a mom wear short shorts?

My kids say I can't...but I don't think it really matters as long as it's not in public. Like at the store or my job.

  • First off why would you let your kids tell you what you are aloud to do?/ Aren't you the parent? Now as far as short shorts... if you like them, why not. I wouldn't do it but my opinion is that I really don't want to be looking at someone's ass hanging out of their clothes. My son who is going on 18 makes fun of the females that wear short shorts... he asks me did they forget their pants???

  • Well, it's not always a matter of "can" ... it's often a matter of "should".

  • It's our body. Not mine.
    I wouldn't be caught dead in them. No one needs to see my thighs, ass, or glow in the dark white!

  • I guess it depends on what your legs look like...

    Haley Barry is a mom, she could wear short shorts til the end of the world - no one would care... I on the other hand, prefer pants, and so do those around me! lol

  • I do sometimes. It all depends on how I feel. But I would never wear them to take my child to the doctor or something like that.

  • If you're a mom and you want to wear short shorts, then so be it. It's probably not appropriate to wear out in public though. I wear short shorts at home, usually as my pajama bottoms.

  • It depends on how you would like your children to dress as well. I pray to God that when my daughter gets older she will never want to wear a BIKINI Personally I think that that shows to much of your body. I think that today women do show to much body any more. I mean come on leave something to the imagination. I am not be any means saying you dress bad :) but there are some people who should grow up with kids. You also stated that you dont wear them in public.... around the house... if it is your son saying this then you should take his opinion in to consideration maybe he likes seeing his mother a woman to look up to and not like the other girls running around flashing all they got maybe he thinks you might try to do it too...
