I was an early teen when Madonna came on the scene. I remember at 13 dressing in fishnets and miniskirts, and being a virgin too. I also remember getting called a slut and being nearly beaten by overweight insecure girls who did not like the boys staring at me.
I was doing it because of lack of self esteem. If I had self esteem, I would never have dressed or acted like that. The other girls were reacting because they too had no self esteem-if they had they would have ignored me.
That said, I lured in boys who were WAY to immature to be able to handle that sort of overt sexuality. And I also lured in men I was too immature to deal with. I got what I wanted-attention from boys, but it was NOT what I needed nor what I could cope with.
Parents need to step up to the plate and say no to these kids. I allow my children liberty with thier looks-long hair, drawn-on clothing (artwork with sharpies, not meaning really tight), etc, but it must be age appropriate. If I had girls there would be limits as to skirt length etc. Sure, they could TRY to change at school, but you never know when mom will show up,
also I know people who work at the school.
Here is my take on life:
Every child comes with a manual by God telling parents how to raise said child.
The grandmothers steal it.
It is a conspiracy to keep parents in the dark. After we have our own children, we are so bitter at how hard it is, we steal their manuals when they have children.
It is a viscious, bitter cycle.
