No parent wants to be the fashion police. Outcome: possibly more rebellion. After all, dressing in revealing clothing may garner Miley Cyrus, Willow Smith and Taylor Momsen media coverage, but it can get a young woman hassled, catcalled and propositioned, not to mention gossiped about and bullied on social networking sites. People often judge us inaccurately just by the way we dress. Is it the message you want to send?

Girls In Revealing Clothing Are Just Great (72 pics)
The year-old chef posted what he thought was an innocent picture of his children on a night out - and was hit by a tsunami of online criticism about his parenting skills. Matilda, 14, in a stripy crop top and skater skirt; Holly, 16, in a slip of a sequin dress; and Megan, 17, also in a crop top and spangly mini-skirt. I can certainly see what they mean. The outfits are a bit, well, economically cut.

My 13 year old is quite clear that for her age it means not wearing tiny crop tops and refers to those that do as ridiculous and asking for trouble. Madame, however, was unswerving in her views and drew a line across her own legs to indicate what length of shorts would be acceptable. My daughter however returned from the trip with stories of girls that flouted the rules and appeared at breakfast wearing the shortest of crop tops and the shortest of shorts. Each day they were told to change or stay behind, until the last day when maybe worn down by their persistence we have all been there they just let them get on with it. On a different note, my son attended a party over the summer at which a girl in his group befriended some boys unknown to them and got herself into a situation my son felt uncomfortable with.
Your daughter's growing up, and her wardrobe is too. Maybe she's rocking booty shorts on Instagram, wearing heavy Goth make-up to family dinner, or wearing crop tops to work. If your own parents kept a close eye on what you wore as a teenager, you might be wondering if you should do the same — especially if you're concerned your daughter is flouting the school dress code, or dressing older than her real age because of peer pressure. Talking about 'appropriate attire' with your daughter can be a minefield, and experts say it can have disastrous consequences for her self-esteem if handled clumsily.
