Guest Blogger Sandy: I'll be the first to admit, step parenting is no walk in the park! Especially when it comes to moody teenage girls. But "SHOCKED" is my current word of the day.
My mom is my personal adviser when it comes to parenting. I can always count on her to keep me focused and fair when it comes to my stepdaughter. The other day, my mom was over and thought she would help me out with an enormous pile of laundry. My stepdaughter does her own laundry, but had left her clothes in the dryer overnight. My mom laid her clothes on the bed for her to fold when she got home from school.
Later that day, my mom asks me, "So why would you allow a CHILD to wear a thong? That's disgusting." Well, this was news to me! I had no idea that my 10th-grade stepdaughter was wearing thongs.
When my stepdaughter got home that afternoon, I asked her why she felt the need to wear thong underwear. She said: "So people won't see my panty line." Of course, my next question was, "Why are you so worried about people not seeing your panty line"? She answered me with, "Eew, that's gross!"
So when SHOULD a mother allow her daughter to wear thong underwear? Is she really concerned about her "panty line" or she trying to be sexy?
