Re: do you let your teen girl wear a bikini in public?
No, never. Shorts and shirts over a suit unless they are at home or swimming with just a few girls in a non-public place. There is no reason for girls or women of any age to be exposing so much of their bodies, I don't care what the "norm" is. There are plenty of things that are socially acceptable that I won't be a part of and will do what I can within reason to keep my girls from. I don't care if we are considered outcasts. I would rather be considered an outcast than sacrifice my daughters childhood, modesty and innocence in effort to be doing what everyone else is doing. I don't personally believe there is a such thing as a modest bikini.
