Re: do you let your teen girl wear a bikini in public?
I wouldn't have a problem with it but I consider a teen 15+ so a pre-teen would need to be in a tankini or something more modest.
I wear bikinis and as soon as I get this baby stomach flab off am planning too again so think it would be a bit strange to not allow a (hypothetical) daughter too.
Plus I personally feel that when you hit 16ish you are capable of making choices like that for yourself, it is part of becoming an adult. But that is just my opinion
I think if you don't feel comfortable with your daughter wearing a bikini- saying that those are just the house rules and she can wear one when she moves out would be a more then acceptable reason.
