    “Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”

    Socrates.



    Every generation complains about the next. My grandmother complained about what my mum wore in the fifties. My mum complained about what i wore in the 80's and i may complain about what my daughter will wear in 10 years.
    Confidence is the best accessory. I wore some crazy weird stuff, perhaps a bit raunchy but you know, i think i turned out ok. You just have to instil confidence and self respect in your daughter.

    I was looking at FB yesterday and I am horrified about how my 14 year old niece is dressing. Tiniest little crop tops, pierced belly button, tonnes of makeup - she has just turned 14!! I thought piercing your navel had an age restriction on it.

    I'm 33 and at 16 I was wearing Midriff tops with jeans on very cold nights with no jacket. It was the fashion and a pain to find a place to leave your jacket when in a party, lol. I was quiet 'straight' actually!
    Oh I also had my belly pierced!

    I thought you had to be at least 16 to get a piercing with out parental/ guardian permission?

    She is in Canada - so not sure if it is different. But I wouldn't be surprised if her parents let her do it.

    It isn't about s>lut shaming either, it is about kids being kids and not dressing like 25 year olds when they are so young.

    I always remind my 13yo dd that she is beautiful and that she doesn't need to dress like that to get attention, luckily it's working so far!

    I remember the day after we found out this baby was a girl, looking out the window at work & seeing a teenage girl wearing tiny shorts & a tiny top (in the middle of July!) and thinking "ohh nooo".

    When I was 14 & my friends were dressing rather suggestively, I started to as well until my mum called me a ***** - that was the end of that. I started covering up!

    We're the same age and I did this too! It was the fashion.

    I also may have cut a pair of jeans off to make shorts. They were called "cutoffs", they were the summer fashion! Lol now.

    We have two dds, my dh wants to lock them up too, I'm a bit scared of when dd1 is a teenager, if I'm honest.

    Every generation has this conversation.

    In the 70s and 80s it was all high cut bikinis or string bikinis. There was no such thing as tankinis. It was also very common for a lot of young women to be topless at the beach.

    Bum cheeks started hanging out of shorts in the 70s too. As a child I thought all shorts were very short, it wasn't until the early 80s that they started to get a bit longer. Shorts and trousers were also very VERY tight in the 70s, both for women and men (ewww!).
