If I had a 15 year old daughter, and she wanted to wear a thong, the first thing I'd ask her is 'why'.

If the answer was to be sexy or to be like the other girls, we'd have to have a chat....  If the answer was because of comfort or lines, I'd probably allow it, but still have a chat with her....

Thank God I have only boys.

My opinion is NO, but I am not an expert on teenage girls.
No  
#2 | 1801 days ago

Thongs here in Australia are what you lot call 'flip-flops', so I sorta went ''wtf''...? Then I remembered. As for your question - maybe 16-17, but I guess this is the trend these days for them & it's getting earlier & earlier in their lives that they want to wear them.
#3 | 1801 days ago

Yeah it's cool
Yes   
#4 | 1801 days ago

 As long as she doesn't walk on the street without properly covering herself...

#8 | 1801 days ago

I would say nothing wrong with it as long as they are worn, w/o them hanging out of their jeans. I like to think I am not judgmental but, when I saw a young girl with her thong hanging out of her jeans the other day I was thinking she was asking for trouble good luck with this matter. Parents have a harder time with kids now days, peer pressure sometimes makes kids make poor decisions.

I also have a fifteen year old daughter and I will not allow her to wear thongs!! I believe it is inappropriate for young girls like that to wear those things!! She may not be happy, but sometimes you just have to set your foot down and tell her no!!

I have a 16 year old daughter who has a few pair.  She wears them under her Cheerleading uniform (no panty lines).  We did have a talk before she started wearing them and she is very respectful with how she presents herself.  She knows I wear them so I told her at 16 we would talk about it.  I think that is about the right age when worn appropriately!

You deserve more respect than I can give you!

#13 | 1801 days ago

Are they clean?  Then things are okay
Does it show when she's wearing pants?  Then she needs better fitting pants and bigger drawers

Can't say no...I have a teenager now, and its just hard to be a Dad and complaining about underwear.  Just try to keep things under control.  The "Old School" in me says Hells Naww, but "Sensible Dad" says as long as in good taste and trusting things aren't getting OOC  (Out Of Control...you will see that alot more from me here), it should be accepted 
Yes   
#14 | 1801 days ago

I'm guessing that you do not mean on her feet? 
#15 | 1801 days ago

If I was 15 myself, I'd say HELL YEAH!

But as an adult, I think 15 is a little young for a girl to be rocking the thong. 
No  
#16 | 1801 days ago

as long as she keeps her pants on I don't see a problem with it
Yes

LOL you used OOC....haha not a lot of people use that.

Anyways I don't see a problem with it as long as its not sticking out the top of her jeans. It isn't really that big of a deal, I have three daughters and two of them wanted to wear them and the other one didn't.
#18 | 1801 days ago

I guess that is OK, just don't let her wear white after Labor Day.
Yes   
#19 | 1801 days ago

I wouldn't --- but I'm old fashioned...  I don't even let my daughters wear 2 piece bathing suits! 

My mom is the guardian for my cousins... of which one is 22 years old now... If my mom sees a thong in the laundry, she cuts it with scissors.... Don't know if I would go to that extreme for a 22 year old... but I probably would for a 14 year old.

My step daughter is almost 19 and she wears them... When I'm doing laundry... I just say to her... Why even wear them?  They don't cover anything?  They have no purpose! 
#20 | 1801 days ago

I really hope I only have sons.
No  
#21 | 1801 days ago

I have an 8 year old daughter and if she wants to wear thongs when she's that age, like Scott I would ask her why first. If they were for comfort or because of panty lines then absolutely. I'd be a bit of a hypocrite if I didn't let her wear them.

Hopefully the trend where they hang out above the jeans will be over and it won't even be an issue. Honestly, I'd rather her be wearing thongs than wearing her jeans low  enough to where they would show anyway.
#22 | 1801 days ago

I have one daughter out of 4 kids - and she is only 12 right now - she likes frilly bras and underwear but she has not brought up the subject of Thongs LOL - honestly as long as she is comfortable I don't care - however the first time I see them sticking out of her jeans - they go in the trash and she gets granny pants briefs until she moves out LOL
#23 | 1801 days ago

I don't have a daughter, so take my thoughts as you will.

But, if asked, i think my opinion would be no, until they are old enough to buy them with their own money. And then, as long as they aren't hanging out. My reasoning was that the only reason to have them is to show them to someone. I understand panty lines are an issue, that as a man, I don't really have to deal with, so what do I know.
No  
#24 | 1801 days ago

My daughter is 25 now and she started wearing thongs around the age of 15 or 16 because she bought them with her babysitting money and thought they were  more comfortable under her jeans than the full " cover her butt " ones. Quite frankly as a single dad raising a hormonal teenage girl I was just happy she was wearing panties and respectable clothes most of the time compared to what I saw her friend's wearing. And I second the thoughts on the cheerleading thongs she always wore Spanks that completely covered her when she was a cheerleader. I'll have to ask her what she thinks about her daughter ( 18 mo's old ) wearing thongs at 15 and see what she has to say now that she's a mom.  The good news is this too shall pass and you can have a chuckle about it in a few years.
Yes

I agree with you, 15 yrs old is to young to wear such clothing. Just asking for trouble.

I agree to young talk to your Daughter let her know it sends the wrong message to boy's. And play the age card tell her when she's 18 she can buy and whear what ever she wants !

I say yes, underwear is to be worn under your clothes.  I haven't seen this hanging out of pants yet but i guess it is like the bra straps showing.  Just a fad.  All teens go thru it and want to fit in.

So I'm not so bad!! Cali, you know there are them different levels of OOC you can go in situations like this:
ROOC - Really OOC
COOC - Completely OOC
FOOC - F*****' OOC
JAOOC - Just Absolutely OOC
FMBOOC - Freakin' Mind Bending OOC

There are a few more (We gotta start using them on other polls)...

 We have 17 and 12 year old daughters. The teenager wears thongs. I'm not exactly sure what age she started, but I don't think it was before 16. That was, frankly, Mom's department. I only make comment if you can see it outside the pants-- that is NOT OK. But I also teach middle school and trust me, not that I'm trying to see, but there are girls there wearing them. That is definitely too young.

My daughter was playing in a 12&under softball league last summer.  I was scared, sickened & amazed when my wife pointed out the opposing catchers thong hanging out.  Again 12 & under.

Is she hot?      JUST KIDDING GUYS!  (that was meant STRICTLY as a joke- no Offense intended)     I can't really answer this because I don't have any kids, but I guess my first question would be WHY would she want to wear them? Does she want to wear them for comfortability or for "sexiness"?
No  
#46 | 1766 days ago

HELLLLLL NOOOOOO!!!!! KIDS ARE GROWING UP TO FAST NOW!!!!

#47 | 1766 days ago

It all depends on weather she has a 15 year old boyfriend
#48 | 1728 days ago

I remember when i was 15 i wore them............. my parents never really cared what i did tho. If my daughter were 15 and wanted to wear one i would also ask her y and if she said, "Easy access" i would tell her NO!. But if it were because they are more comfortable or because she doesnt like her panty lines showing thru her jeans i would say ok. so it all depends on why she wants to and what you believe is right. none of us can make that choice for you we can only give you advice.........  GOOD LUCK!
Yes

That isnt always the case like i said ive been there it might just b because they r more comfortable.
Yes   
#50 | 1728 days ago

I like to think that i raised my daughter well...she turned out to be a very level headed Diva...it's about education and career for her! She's 24 with no kids and drives a super charged vehicle that she paid with her own money.  We as parents have to remember that we were that age at one point and some of us are still at that age level...lol! You must learn to trust your child's decisions they make, for remember your child is an image of you.  If you tell a child no...most likely they will do it behind your back, in which is worse.  Talk to your child and explain to them why you feel the way you feel about certain subject matters, but let them decide for themselves and stand by their decision...but let them know....DO YOU KNOW THE CONSEQUENCES TO YOUR ACTIONS AND ARE YOU PREPARED TO DEAL WITH IT! and that goes for everything from SEX, DRUGS and RELATIONSHIPS!

As much as we want to keep them babies....we can't....we can't tell them not to, for they will do it just to spite you!

So i ask you all, what is the difference in bikini underwear as to the thong beside the string or chain up the asssssp?!?!?!?! NOTHING!!!

lol....i understand, but again....you tell them NO, they will wear them when they aren't with you....you CANNOT watch your kid 24/7! But you can trust them to make a wise decision when you speak to them as to why you don't want them to wear certain kinds of clothing...KIDS WILL DO WHAT THEY WANT TO...weather or not we approve....to your face or behind your back!

Reminds me of when my daughter was that age (she's 12 now).   When we were in restaurants, my wife would tease me by telling me "that boy over there" is looking at your daughter.   I would tell her that was fine.  As long as it was the boy looking at my daughter, they were just being hopeful.  If she was looking at them, then they were in trouble.  At that point, they would be considered prospects, then I would have to smack one around or something ()

You have some time before you have to deal with the thong issue in your family.  I hope you are able to get some wisdom from some of these posts for when the time comes.

When I grew up, thongs were things you wore on your feet.  To this day, the first thing I think of when I hear "thongs" is the footwear.

So to me the difference is...   A thong vs. a pair of thongs.

Some people who wear a thong should be wearing a pair of thongs.

MY OPINION IS I THINK THAT IS A BAD IDEA!!!  BECAUSE NOW-A-DAYS IF YOU GIVE KIDS A INCE THEY WILL TAKE A MILE...YOU DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING THAT THEY DO ANYWAY...THEY ARE NOT GOING TO TELL YOU EVERYTHING SO I WOULD BE WATCHFUL OF ANY DECISION YOU CHOOSE TO MAKE............
