Our children are exposed to sexuality at an early age through TV, toys, and yep, seeing others wearing inappropriate clothing. If she wants to dance, I hope she boogies her little heart out. Admittedly she was one of the younger ones in the class, yet as we walked into the classroom, I was instantly struck by the number of seven-year-old girls wearing bedazzled booty shorts. I've compiled a list of the top 10 questions and topics that I get asked about from the year-olds I've taught and their mothers too. She may get angry and swap clothes with her friends the minute she leaves the house. That being said, I was 20, not 7, and mine were certainly not purchased by my parents. But as I looked through that dance class window, all I could think was that the parents of those girls must have bought them those outfits and let them out of the house to shake their behinds for all the world to see.

I admittedly thought these were fabulous at the time.

Why I let my daughter wear booty shorts
And shake their prepubescent chests! Maybe this will backfire on me. That being said, I was 20, not 7, and mine were certainly not purchased by my parents. The day I caught my six-year-old daughter looking in disgust at her tummy rolls in the bathroom I knew it was time to start evaluating how to teach my daughters about beauty and self-image. It appears the same short shorts that I used to wear in college with a big U of A stamped across my rear end go Wildcats!
