Swimsuit season starts a war between my 13 yo and me. She wants a bikini. Any thoughts?

A 13 year old can wear any type of bikini, string, bandeau or a regular one, I have seen 10, 11 and 12 year old girls wearing all types of bikinis, however I would rather see them at a backyard or at a private pool where they are no boys or perverted older men are not around, it is the only way that can keep a girl in any type of bikini very safe, I do strongly support this!

I feel you stress level rise. Buying clothes for a 13yo is such a war, not challenge. Lol. I have 2 13yo girls myself (not twins..blended family) Each has their own style. They have worn bikinis every year up to now. My husband agrees on a one piece swim suit is aporopriate at this age. Im sure its going to be an battle with my girls, but i see how other teens their age dress and its shocking..and as other mothers have stated, we are the parent not friend and if boundaries are not set now, they will be harder to control in the years to come
