    We had THAT exact same experience when we went to our oldest daughter's first middle school chorus concert.

    It is amazing what parents will allow their kids to wear.

    Sure, but since it's all something you derived yourself, you know very well you have no consequences if you do not live up to those ideals. They are the guidelines you have set to live your life by....that's really all. And you can move the baseline anytime.

    I don't think 15 year olds wear yoga pants.

    These are reeeeally short shorts - like they wear in women's volleyball.

    It's a good morning for the Gip.

    There's no age restriction to yoga pants....and if you're looking at 15 year olds.....

    You were the exception to the rule. The majority of the Jocks I went to school with are working menial jobs due to their focus on popularity and athletics. Jocks only make up a small percentage of any school populace. I was a semi-jock myself but I did not run in the Jock circles. I saw the hierarchy created by the popularity of jocks in my school. As a result of their popularity, the majority of the girls centered themselves around them. I knew many great guys that I went to school with that never got their due attention from girls simply because they were not jocks. I would teach my daughter to put little value in popularity. To see value in personality over popularity.

    I would not teach my daughter to approach guys because if they approached the wrong guy that could create problems. Getting to know a guy first in a realm where they have common interests or run into each other is better. Then they are not approaching. Instead they are initiating another step in an already existing relationship. It is also better to avoid the slut approach which would certainly get tossed around quickly.
    What problem would it cause? It teaches her that she determines who she ends up with and not to allow guys to determine who she ends up with. It also opens up her options. Instead of just taking what comes to her, she could put her own values into the process instead of others placing their values on her.

    Other than those two you have a lot of sweeping generalities...
    Well, a topic like this is going to contain generalities. I don't have time to write a book on it.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    It happens. If you can honestly say you have never checked out a chick you thought was older, then at some point realized you might be a dirty old man (because you saw her face) , you are lying thru your teeth. I can honestly admit to checking out a girl thinking she was in her 20's and then noticing something that made me realize she was a teenager...
