    IMO I don't think the picture was that bad, there are many worse photos out there. Like the OP has said pervs will be pervs. She obviously has a good relationship with her daughter, she is friends with her on the social media pages so is aware of what is being posted.

    OP, I am not sure what her settings are like on social media but it could be worth checking and making sure that perhaps they are set to private so that on her friends can see what she is posting? I know that doesn't change what she is posting but at least you will know exactly who can and can't see it.

    Also we are all only really seeing half the post, I think also the 'caption' or the hashtags to the image will provide more context to the picture - sometimes those things sway which was a photo is perceived / interpreted by friends / family etc

    Such a hard one with social media these days. I would just keep an eye on her accounts and keep communicating with her and making her aware of the perceptions images can have - you sound like you are doing a great job so far!

    I'm a mum of an 18 yr old DD who has Instagram and FB and honestly the photos to me are harmless. I've seen a lot worse !

    To me the photos aren't sexual or provocative . But each to their own

But it's the reasons behind her wanting to post the photos that would concern me? My views are probably a bit skewed...I have a cousin (in her early 20's) who posts similar photos...and does it for the attention that the photo gives her. She never posts anything 'less than perfect' and posts photos of herself posing in a lot of different positions in outfits similar to your daughters. My cousin is a dancer, so whilst it could be argued that she is posting the photos to show off her sport, she's not. She'll get up before dawn and go to an exotic looking location ( sometimes with an equally athletic man and pose together )- for nothing more than social media attention and gratification that she is indeed, fit and worthy of being looked at. Lots of likes and comments about how amazing her body is warrants her photo to be either her profile or cover photo...until the next 'look at me' photo shoot.
    In no way am I saying that your daughter is doing this...but I guess I'd be continuing to talk to her about these issues that can come up...it's what bothers me the most about Instagram - that it can become such a chase for the perfect photo to upload, and people then wait for validation that their photo is, indeed, one of beauty and perfection.
    Yes all of this - my DD and I watched a great ABC doco on Body Obsession the other night.

    You must have misunderstood. Or I haven't been clear. For me it's not about boys wanting to have s&x with her. I would have a conversation with my daughter saying that I am worried she is focused so much on appearances, attention and approval - from boys and/or girls. To me that is the aspect that poses the most imminent danger to her well being.

    I can't understand this. You know there are dirty prevent characters on BH trying to get their rocks off and you feel comfortable posting scantily clad photos of your child on here? I mean of course perves will be perves but they wouldn't have access to your kids photos if you didn't post them.

    This photo doesn't determine her value. It is just a nice photo and she obviously thought it looked good and wanted to share it. If people can't see past that to her personality and all the other things that make her awesome, that is not her problem.
    You are right, this photo doesn't determine her value...but I would worry as to why she thought to take the photo in the first place...did she think 'wow, me doing my hair in my leotard will look arty...or did she think 'I look really good in this photo, I wonder how many comments and likes I'll get if I take it and share it.' That would be what I would be wanting to determine.

    Actually, not all of us choose to automatically equate someone who works as an escort (and therefore judged by you to be a 'dirty perve') with paedophilia.

    It's one of those risk assessment things. I do understand it. We all lose sleep at night worrying about things that can happen to our child. That doesn't mean we lose sleep over the same things. I worry most about DS choking and drowning. Some people worry about terrorist attacks. Others worry about exposure to toxins.

    Obviously I would prefer that strangers on the Internet don't access photos of my son for their own nefarious cravings, but I can 100% tell you that I don't lose sleep over it. If it happens, well he won't know and I won't know.

    I would think the same, as I stated in my first post. The number of sexual predators preying on teenage boys are obviously less, but it still has the same ramifications, especially with potential employers.

    I think it's equally important to teach our boys that they are more than just the sport they play and the fit athlete c bodies that go with it.

    This isn't a male vs female debate. Both genders can post sexually driven (or perceived) images and both have the same potential ramifications.

    I agree with you. Only bit I'm not sure about is, predators preying on boys as less. I wasn't suggesting it was male vs female, only that I think there are possibly different standards we set for boys and girls.
