I was taken with a comment in the fashion trends thread that dad's may curtail their thong wearing because of the potential embarrassment for their children. For the first few years of parenthood I imagine that there wouldn't be any change, but once your children start to have friends come round and you interact with other parents socially, what happens then?

I'd be interested to hear about your frustrations or adaptations - if any. Basically, I want to know how you've changed your habits, if at all. What has been the reactions of other mums and dads to your choice of swimwear around your and their children? Must confess that I have a vested interest as I'm about to fall into this demographic early next year and I was wondering if my thonging days may be running out - slightly!!

 My kids are 10 and 12. I wear bikini swimwear as skimpy as skinzwear bikinis around them but never my thongs. They do know I wear them as my youngest as has seen them laying around and commented on how she liked them. :-) Nonetheless I wouldn't thong in from them myself. They don't need to see Dad's ass.

 My wife forbade me from wearing thongs in front of our kids once the oldest reached four. I cheated a couple of times during the year following and almost got caught. Essentially, they told on me though I was able to convince my wife that they were talking about a beach trip a year ago before she issued the decree.
Nowadays I have to find time to go to the beach alone; regrettably contributing to the stereotype that male thongers are all loners.

 Hmmmm yes it has. I haven't worn thongs in front of them since my oldest was 2 years old. He's 11. I wish i could of been like other families which are open minded about  nudism and wearing thongs in front of their children. One weekend we went to Galveston and I decided I was going to wear a skinzwear bikini money print. Kids made fun for a while I finally told them look this is the swimwear I prefer to wear, and they where fine after awhile.The novelty of seeing dad in a bikini  had wore off. I just sucked in my gut and wore it proud. I wished it would of been a thong when I say a thong I mean  more like a g string. skinzwear spartan model.
In conclusion having kids has changed my thonging habits.
I now have to take solo trips to Galveston or even  to my nearby river to be comfortable wearing my #1choice for swimwear  thongs and /or g string.
 I would not wear one in front of my kids now. They are aware I wear thongs or at least own a bunch. My youngest ones still think they  are girl panties. They found my pink star thong once in my drawers, and heard it again from them. I think I told them my GF left them here ..   Now it's board shorts with them which is the norm, or a bikini.
My thonging days are far from away. I just cannot do it front Of my kids now. We just to adapt to our surroundings 

 Happy thoning ...O

 Becoming a parent has changed my thong wearing habits indirectely.
It has not changed my habits for underwear but has changed for beach indirectly.
before, I tanned on little beach, with few people. But this beach are not adapted for children. So i was obliged to change of beach and to go on family beach most adapted to my children.
And, of course, it is more difficult to wear a thong on a family beach than on a isolated beach. that is the reason why i say it has changed indirectly my thong wearing habits.
But, when you become parents, it is ALL YOUR life which change and it is irreversible !

Otherwise, i have no problems with thong in front of my childs because i have no problems of nudity at home. It is our style of life : my wife and I walk nude betwen bedroom and showroom, etc.  In fact, the only problems is that i have difficulties to explain to my daughter that she can't be nude everywhere. She is only 4 but it become a real problem

I've been wearing a thong just before the kids were born and I still wear a thong on the beach. I've never worn one in front of my kids friends and never will. You just never know how and what their parents will think.  My son is 15 and daughter 13 and they wear standard swimsuits and underwear. Hopefully they don't take after me. At the beach I mostly walk around in a bikini as a cover up and tan in a thong. My daughter just calls it my bikini my son doesn't seem to care one way or another.  I've taken my kids 1 at a time before to the beach and still the same as every other day. I wouldn't recommend changing your way in front of your kids. We have played ball and other beach activities while I've been in a thong. One thing being with your friends and their kids verses beinging in front of you kids friends. Many times I'd be in a thong with my friends with theirs kids without ever having a problem. Good Luck..

 Some very interesting replies that show a good sense of perspective. I'm feeling some hope that I may still have a good few years left at least. 
I do wonder how it will affect my wife's thong bikini wearing though. I guess we'll have to wait and see the effect on her body afterwards, but I don't think there would be any other reason for her to stop, being that women don't have the same pressures as men regarding thongs!

If I had teenage daughters, I would let them wear , thongs to the beach. They would be with me, as We are italians, and all of my cousins, nieces and such, are good looking darker skinned individuald. We maintain, and prescribe to them, that working out, and being fit, is a reason why we would let them wear thongs. I believe if you get up at 5 and workout, instead of doing all the texting and bs teenagers do, then this would be my way of saying do as your uncle would do.

 I suppose so, I was  more carefree about it before the little ones came along. Mind you my wife always had her reservations about it she was less particular in those days.It is still a battle sometimes with the rios but again the setting helps. I have also become less adamant about minimal swimwear but I still refuse to go larger than squares.I guess this is a function of getting older as well as the kids and their friends being around.
 I will routinely wear rios(JS Capri) with our kids in the pool but if their friends are around I will go a couple of notches higher with more coverage. Like others have said the kids themselves may or may not care but when they go home and mention to their parents that so and so's dad was wearing "panties" and such; the reactions may be less than welcoming. Given the media and societal need to "protect the children" I do not want to subject my kids to any more ridiculing than they already endure for the usual reasons.
 They( my kids) do know that I wear thongs and have occasionally seen me in them. They do not seem to care(heck the JS Capri is as close as you can get) but I do not want to tempt fate with the wifey.

 I'm with PK.  I don't want my kids to be the ones with "that" dad, so I play it cool when they and their friends are around.  Tanning and relaxing are difficult with young kids running around anyways, so I save the thongs for my time.  If anything, though, I wear much smaller thongs and g's, when I can, since I've become a parent.

I don't wear thongs around my kid's friends, but am never afraid to wear a speedo anywhere (I wear Aussie Bums now, when I do wear a bkini). But if I was in a thong at the beach, and friends arrived, I wouldn't change what I had on. Same goes in our pool. That's happened a couple of times. Our neighbours know I wear thongs because of a conversation one night leading to me showing them the one I had on at the time, and I don't know if they fully approve of it or not, but we are still good friends regardless. Their kids and our kids just migrate between our two houses as a group at times, especially in summer. More than once I have been in the pool with my wife, and all four kids show up and get in as well. I just stay in as normal - they are coming in to my space - and I know they can see them under water. No issue has ever come of it, but I can only assume their teenage daughter says something to her mother, as she will glance at me as if to say 'You're doing something that's not the norm, but I already know and trust you, so it's no problem'! It doesn't seem to be an issue. They keep coming back!

We've never hidden our bodies or our thong/g-string wearing from our kids. It's never been anything unusual to us or them. We all walk around our house naked from the shower or whatever (but we aren't generally nudists at home or anything like that) and get changed/undressed/dressed when other family members are in the same room. They see our thongs and g's. There are no body issues between us, nor are there dress issues.

This has been the same for as long as we have been married, and hasn't changed since we've had kids. The only thing that has changed my wife from going to the beach in a thong as much is her own body image since having kids. I still love to see her do it when she does. It helped that I went to the nudist beach with her father before we married, and have always taken her there too. She grew up going there with her family!

So, no, we haven't changed because of kids!

This question has 4 answers for wife and I.  When I really assessd the question, I basically came up with the exact opposite answer which I originally anticipated....and that answer is NO.  Here is the breakdown

Me (underwear)......I basically dont wear underwear except for the 2 hours of the day where I am going to, at, and then coming home from the gym.  When I put underwear on, it is a thong.  The kids never see it, only some guys in the locker room do, ergo the answer to this part is ......NO

Me (swimwear)....The only time I wear/wore thong swimsuits is on getaway vacations with intimate partners (no kids involved) or at clothing optional beaches here on the east coast (Gunnison and Riis Park NY back in the day)...again, no kids.  I have never thonged in front of friends or family, it has really been in front of intimate partners or strangers for my entire life...ergo....again the answear is ...........NO

Wife (swimwear).....Wife never wore a thong swimsuit before she met me.   Her topless/thong/g-string situation is exactly the same as mine above....getaway vacations and Gunnison beach.  No kids, no friends, no family....hence, kids have not really changed that...ergo........NO

Wife (underwear).....wife wore thong underwear daily before she met me.  Today she wears g-string underwear daily.  She gets dressed, changes, puts on makeup, etc in full view of the kids (2 daughters and one son) in her G and bra.  She makes no attempt to hide anything and all three of them very frequently see her in her g-string panties, often topless and sometimes nude.   Hence.........NO Change


So...in spite of what I initially assumed, our thonging habits have not changed at all since kids.

Not yet, but I fear it will.  I have two daughters (2 and 5).  So at some point, (I'm being told) that I should show modesty, so my daughters do not feel it's acceptable. 
Right now, I'm not too concerned about it.  They've seen me in the same underwear since birth, so it's nothing out of the ordinary for them.

My girls are 10 and 12 now. Although I always wear speedos around them to family beaches and on holidays, I've never worn a thong. Last year in Hawaii I did wear a black skinzwear bikini on a secluded beach with them and I don't hide the fact I wear bikini underwear. The human body has never been an issue in our family, however I do feel that the kids don't need to see dad's ass, nor do they need to hear the stupid comments from others if I did wear a thong. Being in the US I'm enough of an anomaly in my bikini speedos as is, however I'm openly gay, so any ignorant comments toward my choice of swimwear being 'gay' it's like, ummm duh, so what? :-) I feel for my straight thong/bikini brothers who always have to put up with that crap about being gay just because they like skimpy swimwear. My hat's off to you for being comfortable with who you are.

I've never heard any comments from any of my kids' friends about my speedos and even if I did, they're just kids, so what? My youngest kid did see a purple thong on the bathroom floor after I had showered once and she smiled to me and said, "Daddy I LIKE your underwear!" Who knows, maybe when they're young adults and if gravity hasn't taken hold of my bubble butt, I may thong in front of them on the beach. My view is always, "never say never."

Not yet for me.  I'm a fan of minimal bikinis and thongs, but usually only thong in private situations and wear rio-cut suits for public beaches.  My wife prefers the rios.  Our son is under 2 so he doesn't care or know any different yet and won't remember anyway.  I imagine when he is older, 3 or 4, we'll have to reconsider -- probably saving the thongs for vacations without him and sticking with a bikini of some form the rest of the time.

We were recently at the beach with the unusually warm weather here, it was about 75 degrees out and beach goers were wearing everything from long sleeves and jeans down to moderate bikinis, and I wore a muscleskins half back suit.  I was at the edge with my son and my wife was back at our towels 20 yards away while a family with two young teenage daughters walked by and she overheard one saying to the other, sounding a bit confused: "see that guy?  He's hardly wearing anything... but he has a baby!"

obviously it's done sometimes with the intention of putting the person who wears the skimpy suit down, we all know that.Other funny thing is to watch the bodies of the people who sometimes make the comments;   they look like anything from turtles to any other animal paraded at the zoo,  all the way up to human looking guys and gals with greasy fat bellies hanging on them like kangaroo pouches....So at the end it is irrelevant,  the person making the negative comment so loud for us to hear is the one with the problem.  It's not personal, it's just them and their own insecurities probably.
and yes, it's better for us to play the deaf too.

 I always wonder, why is it that some people maybe most people, decide to change the style of how they dress, just because they become parents....
I noticed that some parents, mums and dads, even with slim bodies, some of them relatively young, go for loose pants, old style shoes, or cardigans.
Some dads when hit the beach with their kids, seem to pretend to coordinate their attire with the floaties and rubber ducks and toys of their little kids.   They almost wear flippers, clown shorts and colourful shirts with their kids.  Some even talk like 'kiddies' when talking to their youngest childrern.   Some mums who used to wear lycra tights at the gym, now wear baggy pants and dark colours.
Guys just in their late thirties or early forties go to school reunions wearing grandpa cardigans.
Yes many of them have signs of not spending a lot of time in their health and fitness, but it seems to be a trend to become and look older than they really are.
Maybe the increasing occupations of modern life affect their spirit and this shows in how they dress.

 We (the family) were on spring break last week checking out D.C.  We did not get a chance to do any sunbathing or water activities(we do that enough on other trips and in our backyard). One day while having lunch my wife was going through our camera and there are a lot of photos from our recent Fiji trip. She came across a couple where I was standing on the beach wearing a black JS Capri. She said that although I look good I looked almost naked.  My older daughter now 10 yrs, said that I would look really good in something bigger than that but not quite board shorts. 

 My wife has mentioned recently that now that our kids and those of most of our friends are getting to pre-pubertal age that she is more concerned than ever about my skimpy swimwear. Mind you I do not wear thongs in front of them but JS capris and the like I guess are not a far cry. It sounds like they would not be off put by square cuts or possibly a regular speedo. I suppose at this point in time I will have to reserve the rios etc. for Punta Cana and other similar trips.

I'm on the same boat children's wise, and I know that when the boys grow up and become teenagers, things might be different.
However I still wear MS posers whenever I go with my family to the beach, I even wore it last holiday with our 9 y/o niece.... but that should be the last time I wore it in front of her, she couldn't care less then but once she approaches teen age I understand it wouldn't be appropriate.   If she was my daughter, I probably  wouldn't care.
I intend to wear MS posers to the beach with my boys, as long as they don't object it.  I am in great shape and thongs is all they know I wear on the beach.
Plan B will be to wear rios,  MS athletes back, no posers but micros.   Or Andreas Cahlings 1/2 inch posing suits.  And to pull the back of the suit in while sunning to resemble a thong not to ruin the tan line. Any attempt from them for me to wear something larger (maybe I would settle for a 5 cm speedo) would be rejected..... but again I don't think they would.
I think the comment of your 10 y/o daughter didn't come actually from her, but from your wife.   Having daughters is different, however I'm constantly teaching my kids about being assertive, not to follow peer pressure, being themselves from young age.
The suit you are wearing on your photo standing next to the small swimming pool is in my opinion the perfect suit to wear in front of anyone even pre-pubertal people.   Anything more revealing or in bright colours would be perhaps not appropriate.  Not your fault you are in great shape and this suit looks like painted.     Tell her this is your workable compromise about your swimsuits, and once you become an average 100 cm waist guy you would follow the sheep and go for boring board shorts, as most guys do.

 It funny that this topic has arisen- my wife is 5 months pregnant with our first child, and lately I have been thinking a lot about things like this. 
I don't really expect that my thong wearing will change very much.  I really only wear them when and where I feel comfortable doing so, and that won't change.  The question is whether I will feel comfortable doing so in front of my children.  But this is our first child, so.. who knows. 

But.. hey JH, whats wrong with cardigans? I like buttons!-

As a follow up, we had our daughter back in Aug. and it's been amazing.  As for thongs, being that she is so young, we haven't changed our dressing habits whatsoever. It is a bit unfortunate though, my wife is still working on reclaiming her body, so she has been wearing old sweats and tshirts. This has caused a few funny gender role reversals where she is running around the house in boxer shorts and ratty old wife beaters while I am the one wearing silk thongs and tight tank tops.

I don't have any kids myself, but I hope to one day have 2-3 with a lovely wife. But I won't let kids coming into my life change my clothing or underwear habits and choice. What's the point? I should go forth as a good example for my kids. If they grow up with parents acting like trivial things like that aren't a big deal, they will become confident in themselves and not care what other less open-minded people might think when they make their own choices about how to live their lives, what to wear, etc..

 Naturist family here...3 kids...2 boys and a girl..ages 7 to 10...wife and I agreed before we had kids that we would raise them in a free open and accepting naturist environment and that is what we have done...we have made it a point to seek out other like minded families and so we have a base of friends who share our values...because of this approach on occasions where we go to the beach and cannot be nude as a family my wife and I thong and the kids wear their speedos...since the kids have always seen us nude...seeing us in thongs is no big deal although when the first became old enough to notice the difference they were a bit puzzled but we told them that in some beaches people don't let us be nude and when that happens mom and dad wear this kind of bathing suit.. so for us no change at all really and we have freinds with older kids who have managed to keep them living a nautirst lifestyle so we hope that by exposing our younger kids to these teens they too will feel comfortable continuing to enjoy the lifestyle in which they were raised...if u raise kids and show them that the human body is beautiful and that nudity does not necessarily equal sex then thongs are a minor issue!

I agree with  ENB fully. We have raised a boy in the naturist life style. He is so comfortable with himself. There have been times we second guessed ourselves,but seeing the result we wouldn't change anything now. With the world being so body consciess,it is refreshing to watch a teen boy carry himself the way our son does.

Last year, Randy (my husband) and I turned into temporary parents of a 5 year old girl.  Her mom was killed by a tornado and her dad was laid up in the hospital for several months from injuries.  We became sort of "foster" parents to this girl, who was not an actual relative.  In any event, the girl had all sorts of counseling and we were given counseling advice too to help her after the grief of loosing her mom, their house and virtually all their possessions. 

We have a pool and hot tub, and normally just go nude since the neighbors are mostly too far away to see anything and the one house that is nearby is okay with our nudity.  We also regularly visit beaches and wear thongs and also thong at other places (motel pools, fitness clubs, etc.) whenever we can.  We ask the counselor about thonging.  We got a sort of "who cares" type response.  She said as long as the father knew about it and didn't have an issue, there was nothing wrong with letting the little one see us in our thongs.  She said me and my sister should also feel free to go topfree if we wanted.  The only thing she advised us was:  1.  Make sure our swimwear was okay with the father.  AND  2.  Make sure we were prepared to answer the girls questions about thongs and topfreedom if she ask them, making sure we used language a 5 year old could understand. 

We did not have any issues with the girls acceptance of our swimwear, and while she did ask us a few time about it, the questions were surprisingly intelligent, such as did the thong hurt our butt and why most people did not wear thong swimwear or go topfree.  We did decide to not go nude, even at home when she was there (even though we probably could have) and both Randy and I used what we might call "PG-Rated" thongs with nothing too extreme.  What was more interesting was that with only a couple of exceptions, people at the beach didn't have an issue with us in thongs with a 5 year old girl in tow.  The two people who did complain did so claiming that they were protecting the girls innocence or were motivated by religious feelings.

You should bring her to South Beach, lol. Moms wear thongs all the time in front of their kids. Nobody complains, it's a great place!

What gets me worked up though, for sure, is when someone complains based on or motivated by religion. I don't want to start up a whole discussion of religion in this thread, but I'd like to point out the Bible is full of outdated commandments and rules, many of which are repulsive and dehumanizing. Point being, if they're using the Bible to object to wearing thongs at the beach, then can I use the Bible to defend the owning and beating of slaves? Can I use the Bible to protest having women teachers in school? Should those who divorce and re-marry be put to death for adultery? And so on.

It changed a little bit when the kid started asking questions : "is that a panty?" (me wearing strings) lol
Seeing our neighbors, college gals, get a tan, she ask "why is she not wearing a shirt?" LOL!...driving by baywash (bikini carwash), she say "that 'gorl' forgot her dress".
So at home, we simply just cover up when she is around. Not a big deal.

 I can't say its really changed my habits any. Now I have a younger child (4) and its never been a problem or anything that needed to change. Ive been seen in a thong before and only asked why my underwear was the way it was. I just explained that as you get to be a grown up you get to decide what your the most comfortable in for underwear. From then on out if I haven been seen all I get is "daddy your underwear is showing"(but I get that reaction no matter if its a thong or boxers) and its left at that.

 Have girl 11 and son now 9 and I wear bikinis and thongs to the beach. Also know I wear them as underwear. My son would prefer me not to wear at beach but daughter gets a kick out if it. We go to Desoto so they see more people wearing thomgs and it is no big deal. I do what I want and they swim and bring me shells. They will walk with me at times also. They see it as a small bikini and if that's what you like them it's fine. I expect my daughter to what to wear them sooner then what she thinks. She's s gymnast with good tone and she's going to figure out why they are more comfortable sooner than later. So no it has not changed me.

I am the father of 3 kids (3, 5 an 7 y.o.).

I did'nt change my underwear when i became a father.

But, it has changed my swimwear during several years.
With young kids, i changed my choice of beach. I started to choose "family beach" where there is some play, etc.
As my children were very young, there ran every where, and i was obliged to run after them. So, it was difficult to wear a thong while one of my children was under 2 years old.
Now, my younger girl is 3 y.o. Shed didn't run everywhere now. I can keep an eye on them from afar.
So, i let them play on the beach, while i am on my towel with my thong swimwear.
I put a boardshort over my thong when i go to buy ice cream for my kids.

I noticed that the fact i am a father, the others parents are very tolerant.
Many times, my kids play with other kids on the beach. And the other parents talk with me without any problems whereas i am in a thong swimsuit.
I can remember last summer, a very conservative couple talk with us (me and my wife) about the kids, the weather, etc. whereas i was with my thong swimsuit, as if i was with a classic swimsuit.

Fially, i think that the kids allow to be in a thong swimsuit in a family beach without any problems and offer opportunities to discuss with other people.

 I have a 9 yr old girl and a 7 yr old boy.  Having kids hasn't changed my preference for thong underwear.  I hardly get a chance to tan in a thong so that is kind of a moot point.  However, my thong undies haven't changed.  When the kids were younger, they didn't mind or didn't care what they saw me in.  My son really couldn't care one way or another.  My daughter, started noticing my thong undies a few years ago.  I've noticed that if she walks into my closet and catches my changing pants, she will find a reason to stay and try to get a peek.  Yeah, it's a little creepy when she does that.  So, I'm trying more and more to not let her see me in just a thong. 

So, this brings up another question, and maybe it's own thread.   If you have older kids that wear thong undies, do they wear just them in and around the house?  I used to not hesitate walking around the house in just my thong undies.  But, now, I try to have at least a pair of shorts covering them.  When we are on vacation and we are all in the same room, especially at night, we are all in just our undies.  I still try to have a pair of shorts on to cover up with, but my wife, who doesn't wear thongs, is usually in her undies.  But, they are still going to see me occasionally in just a thong.     I'm just curious, but when you are home with your family, what's the dress code?

I believe you are doing the sensible thing, to cover up in front of your daughter whenever possible, not as much with your son,She obviously is starting to notice.But if it happens that she unexpectedly  catches you wearing a thong I think you should not make a big thing of it. When my nieces stay over (14 and 11) I obviously cover up in front of them if I'm wearing a thong underwear in the house.However I wore a thong once with them and my family at the beach, a couple of years ago,  and there were no issues.Perhaps a thong swimwear on the beach would be more acceptable than plain thong underwear in the house, for the situation where a young lady of your own family is concerned.
I'm lucky (or unlucky) of not having daughters just sons.   They are teenagers now and they always saw me wearing a thong at home (underwear) or at the beach (swimwear).    They couldn't care less, at least until today.They already know that I'm hairless because I full body wax, and have a nipple piercing.   And it is all ok with them.  
I usually walk naked in front of them at home.  They saw me like that since babies.
However I prefer to cover up if I'm naked and wearing a co**ck ring or a glan*s ring.

I am a thong underwear guy.  Having kids did not really change my underwear choice.  My kids are 14 and 17.  They help sort the laundry where they see my thong underwear.  There have not really been any comments on my underwear choice.

 It's not that I'm trying to keep it a secret.  She sees me in them from time to time.  Probably once a week.  But it's only from a few seconds to no more than a minute really.   I just don't make it obvious.  If she sees me, then so be it.  Before I noticed her staring, I didn't care.  Now that she has taken an interest and trying to see my backside, I have been trying to limit her exposure. 

No big deal really.  she is 9, when she gets older, I'm sure she will be telling me to cover up. Now though, she is just noticing things like that.

No question is more about older kids.  I know when I was a kid, we all just wore our undies around the house a lot.  Especially in the morning and at night.  But, thongs weren't invented yet.  It was the late 70's and early 80's.  We didn't think twice about seeing each other in next to nothing.  But, now that a lot of young ladies wear thong undies, do you find that they wear them without covering up?  Like, if they don't normally wear thong bikinis, just thong undies.  Or does it not matter if siblings/parents see them wearing thongs around the house?

 As a parent of 1 girl, we havent changed our lifestyle either. We ar3 nudists and raised our daughter in the same way. Including thongs. She started wearing tbem at a younger age and still does ti this day. She didnt grow out of it.

My habits have only changed insofar that I consider how my choice of swimwear reflects on my kids. When they were younger, I would choose a more conservative swimsuit in certain situations. I didn't want my kids to get labeled because I was wearing a skimpy swimsuit or not be invited to events because people didn't want me wearing a thong around their kids. So really, I wore thongs less not because of my kids but for their sake.

Now that they're a bit older, it's less of an issue. Many of my daughter's friends wear the brazilian style back, so my thong goes unnoticed. I will still ask my son's friend's parents to make sure they're comfortable with thongs. They're usually fine with them.

When it's just the family, we swim nude. And, if none of their friends were around, I've always felt comfortable wearing a thong or going topless.

Not at all. My daughter is now 8 years old. My wife and I wear only thongs / panties and our daughter sees this daily. It is nothing out of the normal for us and I believe it should be treated as totally normal. :)

I have a 2 year old daughter and a very conservative wife. Slowly but surely she eased herself into letting me wear thong underwear. But it was the thonging and skimpy wearing on the beach that had to stop by next summer(3). So I had to explain to her that if we hide stuff from her she is going to hide stuff from us. Plus, if she saw me putting on a thong to get dressed or thonging on the beach growing up she will view it as normal attire. Kids think right or wrong by what their parents and/or the media tells them. I'm raising my daughter to be really open-minded. I jumped as hard as I could to get away from how I was raised. I never picked on kids growing up. I don't bully or bash anyone. Just like us thonging enthusiasts here, we have a reason as to why we like doing what we do. If I see someone else doing what I don't understand, I let them be and look up on the internet to understand why they are doing what they do.
