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.
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.

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 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 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.
