Underwear For Young Girls
Did that title get your attention? I am not trying to be crude, but I did read an interesting article the other day. It was in a Woman's magazine, and was posted under parenting. The topic was would you let your 10-13, or say preteen wear thongs? OK I might live under a rock, but they are just underwear right? Well no, not according to this article. The expert gave the reason for not letting this age group wear thongs as, because the girls really want them so they can feel sexy, despite claiming they were to hide panty lines. She went on to say do you really want your 10-12 year old to be thinking about being sexy, wearing sexy underwear, and what is the purpose of sexy underwear if no one sees them? Hmm, yes I see her point entirely, but do I really want my 13, 14, 15, 16, or even 17 year old feeling sexy, wearing sexy underwear, and what is the purpose of sexy underwear anyways? I found it very interesting that the expert targeted preteens in this group, but not older teens, still not considered adults. Does this imply to you, as it implied to me, that children over the age of 13 should be wanting to feel sexy, and wearing said sexy undergarments? I find it somewhat disturbing that a child expert would not include all teenage girls in this sexy undergarment discussion. What do you think?
