I'm asking this about my cousin, not my own DD (who is only 1
). She looks up to me like a big sister. I recently moved far away and she emails me updates on school, and life in general and just today she sent my pics of her winter ball. Her and her friends where standing in a row all sporting spagetti strap, low cut, backless gowns?!? Full up do's and make-up done. Sure they all looked beautiful, but there are only 12 and 13 years old. I'm no prude, but these girls look 18 . Is this how all 12 and 13 y/o's dress now? I worry that dressing this way will attract unwanted attention for her and her friends. Her mother is a great Mom, and I'm sure she is very careful about who her Daughter is with. I dressed this way when I was her age, although I was raised completely different then her, and I was raped when I was 12 y/o by a 16 and 17 y/o. I worry about her. Is there anyway of aproaching this subject with her without having her just block me out? Or is this just her growning up way too early?
