Hi, I would love some advice here. I have a 13 year old step daughter. She is absolutely beautiful, a dark haired exotic beauty. Her facebook photos are concerning me. there are pics of her in a low cut shirt, poised very sexy, hair blowing by a fan or something, sitting provocatively, etc. She got her hair cut and hates it because she thinks it maker her look young when she wants to look sexy (her exact words). She wears very low cut shirts and tight tight clothes, etc. Is it normal for girls this age to be so sexualized? Am I just too old now? I am only the step mom, so I try not to be the disciplinarian, her father just wants to ignore that his daughter is growing into a woman, and her mother is on her 4th husband, (and the one who took the pictures) so no help there. I did make a comment on her facebook that the photos were a bit racy, not my exact words, but tried to make a light hearted comment about the pics. Was this a bad idea? Should I do/say anything or keep my mouth shut? I'm at a total loss here.
