    Again. It is NOT Abercrombie's fault. They were complicit because there was money to be made. That is what a business does. If you don't like it. Don't try to blame them but find something that would match with what you agree.

    No matter where the family lives the parents are responsible to teach their kids values.

    If the girl isn't taught the golden rule about life, she will turn out bad.

    Please tell me how many cases comprise your experiences. Are you saying you have not seen single mothers that cannot control their daughters?

    If a daughter can do math at all, and the mother had the girl early, how can the mother then tell the daughter not to engage in sexual activity when she did herself. She loses all credibility.

    Do you think a single mother has a better chance to control the daughter or a strong father figure?

    It is well known, the boy wants to please the mother while the girl strives to please the father. She doesn't want to let him down. If he is not there, she is more likely to go wild, looking for a male influence to take care of her.

    It is not that hard to understand.

    You can't really fault them for trying to sell a product. Though who ever came up with the idea could probably use a little professional attention. My problem would be with the parent that allows their kid to wear it.

    Girls need to be taught to never make a decision that will affect the rest of their life.

    A choice to have sex can get her pregnant or she can get a disease, that will affect the rest of her life.

    If she decides to take drugs, she can get hooked or die, that can affect the rest of her life.

    If she decides to drop out of school, that will affect the rest of her life.

    That needs to be drilled into her head about the time she is 12 or 13.

    It works beleive me.

    The mother has no standing to tell the daughter not to do it as she probably did it too, and then you get into the argument of do as I say not as I do. That doesn't work with kids.

    I realize fathers have been discarded buy feminists but for the most part, the most well adjusted kids I have known have come from homes with strong father figures in them.
    All this does is broadcast your ignorance and lack of experience. The best people I know (morally, spiritually, however you want to classify it) were all raised by single parents. Some mothers, some fathers. I myself am the product of a single-parent household and I'd consider myself a reasonably well-adjusted member of society. Most of the people that I know who are REALLY messed up psychologically come from more restrictive or repressive households, typically with two parents.

    I'd say this more reflects on the kinds of single parents who send their children to inner city public schools.

    I agree. What ever happened to dressing little girls like little girls, instead of miniatures of their moms or the current sex symbol? Now babies get their ears pierced and are allowed to wear make-up as soon as they want to.
    I agree, the problem with little kids dressing like adults is in the hands of the parents. They need to put their foot down and not just go along with crowd.
    Still, push up padded bikini's for children is borderline child porn in my opinion.

    I am neither ignorant nor have a lack of experience.

    I am talking about the teenage years.

    Most grow out of it, which you are saying but you cannot deny that during the hard rebel years, it is very hard for a single mother to control a teenage daughter especially when the mother had made the same mistakes.

    I think a strong parent has a better chance of influencing their child. I've seen fathers and mothers who have zero positive impact on their children and I've seen single mother and father who have had a great impact on them. One of my good friends was raised by a single mother and she is the farthest thing from a slut you could imagine.

    I haven't made any generalizations. You have. And when you starting making generalizations like "women can't teach their daughters", you are the one with problem. I've never heard that generalizations and sexist comments are good signs of parenting.
