Is it okay for a 7 year old girl to be topless at the beach?

My niece is 7 and my brother lets her go to the beach in just bikini bottoms. I find this a bit inappropriate, but maybe I’m wrong.

  • I used to have a pool, and we were watching our in-laws kids. They of course wanted to go swimming and my wife let them, I was inside and not aware for a good 10-15 minutes that she was letting the 9-year old girl swim topless. I walked out and my jaw dropped. She was flat, but her nipples were obviously different than a boys-

    I grabbed my wife and asked her what the hell was she thinking? She said that it was no big deal, her parents had her topless swimming until she hit puberty.. *facepalm*

    I made the kid put on a t-shirt and then spent the next 20 minutes explaining to my wife why it was inappropriate. To be fair, she really wasn't so much wrong- from her perspective, there was nothing wrong with it, it simply had nothing to do with anything sexual, but she was just unaware that society had changed, and now it is sexual.

    On a side note, we can thank law&order SVU for scaring the hell out of everyone and making it about sex. That show was fricking child rape porn if you ask me and shouldn't have ever aired.

  • At 7 she is no different from a boy.

    But it will be interesting when she develops breasts and suddenly they are something that needs to be hidden away.

  • I mean, it's not completely inappropriate if she hasn't started developing her breasts yet. But I can totally understand if you want to start covering girls early so they can get used to it a lot faster. Sexism and male predators also play a big part in it, there's no denying that.

  • My mum used to let me until started getting boobs (at like 10)

    • you're not a "woman" at 7

    • @lanadelrey25 Of course not, but it read better that way.

    • ok lol

  • If she doesn’t have any titties its ok I guess

    • No I don’t think so not a good idea

  • Personally, I think its alright.

  • Definitely not a good idea to be doing that

  • I don't think it is that bad as long as her privates are covered.

  • depends on the beach, if its clothing optional or not

  • If she's into it, let her be. It's not like she's hurting anyone.

  • I dont see any reason to cover up breasts until there are breasts to be covered, which at 7 one would assume that there werent.
