    I have an 8 year old DD and I'm not at all concerned. I buy her clothes and will continue to do so until she has a job, so while I'll encourage her to embrace her personal style, the buck stops with me.

    Plus I know many tweens and teens who are amazing, they have great self esteem and self respect and I'd be super proud if my DD turned out like them.

    My partner wants to know if we are allowed to microchip our soon-to-appear daughter. Do we go to a vet for that???

    It doesn't worry me at all. I have a wonderful, smart, confident 17 year old sister. If my DD turns out half as well as her aunt I will be very happy.
    It seems every generation seems to fear the next for no real reason other than they are different to the one they are part of.

    Just today in geelong I saw a girl wearing what only seemed like a long t-shirt. I tried hard to catch a glimpse of her shorts but you couldn't even see that so I'm wondering if she was wearing any at all.

    I'm not concerned at all. My daughter is awesome no matter what she wears, and no one has the right to judge her based on the way she looks.

    I'm only 24 and I don't remember anything particularly sk@nky about my generation as teens, of course there were the outwardly sk@nky behaved girls but no bum hanging out shorts or teeny tiny midriff shirts...

    I remember looking at your age group as teens and thinking the same thing! Unfortunately, photos from high school prove me wrong.

    Society changes, fashion changes & every few years things that would have been trashy previously are suddenly in style and acceptable. It's been that way for generations.

    This. Quite frankly, the s.lut shaming in this thread makes me more concerned than having a daughter growing up in "this" generation.
