  • I wouldn't make a huge issue of it, but I'd do my best to dissuade her from it. I think kids should be kids. At the end of the day, it's just underwear and she's probably trying to fit in. I would absolutely make sure that no one can see it and that she wasn't do this for a boy.
  • hell no!!
  • Underwear is underwear, although I think I'd want to know what her reasoning for wanting one was. She may be a fashionita, and want one to avoid panty lines, or she could be trying to sex up her image. Good luck!
  • No, but ultimately its your decision. Personally, I wouldn't buy such lingerie for a child that young. There is no reason that she should need to wear them. To me, its just asking for toruble. If you give on this, what's next? Tattoos and piercings at 12? (Man I DO sound old now... lol Maybe that was my mother typing...)
    • Lucifee
      Usually girls don't wear thongs to attract penises.
  • If she throws a fit over you saying no or not buying them for her, you have a bigger problem than thongs on a young girl's bum.
  • Hell no. That's a kid.
  • No way... I hope this is a joke question... putting a thong on an 11 year old, that just seems criminal. Do they even make a thong for children? Young girls need to be kept modest by their parents...
  • My opinion is no! Why would you want your daughter to feel sexy at age 11? My oh my.... what would she be asking at age 12?
  • No! Why on earth does she want to wear a thong? Prayerfully, she isn't sexually active because that's the only reason why she would want to wear one. Teaching her modesty is extremely important and so is her innocence. Hold on to both as long as you can.
  • Naa, what are you thinkin' yo?...
  • Most definitely. Though I'd let a child of any age wear a thong if they wanted to... it's a piece of material that some people have sexualised. Given it's highly unlikely my 11 year old daughter would be participating in any sexual activities, it just wouldn't be a sexual thing. Thongs serve an aesthetic purpose too, knicker lines are not the nicest. It's totally understandable for an 11 year old to be concerned with her appearance.
  • hmmm well i know I wore my first thong in the seventh grade. And my reason WAS to be sexy and to pull it up a little so that boys would see it. But in no means was I trying to have sex, just tease. I've always been a major tease and still am. And to this day, i wear thongs each and evry day for the most part (sometmes boy shorts) but its for no sexual, or attention seeking reason. I just find thongs more suitable for my taste, and comfy. But if my 11 daughter would ask me to wear one i'd be a little shaken up.. but its just underwear...just really sexy ones. And at age 11 i think regular panties are more suitable.So I wouldn't allow her to wear thongs til at least high school.
  • Ewwwwwwwwww......BUTT FLOSS! Seriously, I don't know why an eleven year old should want, need or even know what a thong is.
  • Oh no.Please don't let her do that!
  • Hell NOOOOOOOOOOOO
  • um i dont think so. wen i was 11 my mom WANTED me to wear a thong. wait no i was 9. i dont think she wud really need one any way. there only for wen u were tight pants.
  • Well I think that you should let her even though you might think that its wrong. Girls wanna try an fit in and if she is at a sleepover and their showing off bras and thongs, she doesnt wanna be the only one with hanes briefs and bras!!! Give her some space! Has she had her period? After she has her period, she'll go back to wearing pantys during "her time" and maybe go back to thongs otherwise. You should at least let her give it a try and if she comes down with a mini skirt and a "too tight white tee shirt with a way to small bra, then you put those panties back on her butt!!! Good Luck!
  • I would say...no!
  • No! Be the parent and let the limits now. Thong today, boyfreind spending the night tomorrow.
  • This is a decision that you will have to make on your own. It is not a uniform decision that other mothers/fathers can make for you. That being said, I would suggest that you have a talk with her and get down to the root of why she wants to wear this type of underwear. Then, after you've gathered more info as to her motives, make your decision. Make sure you fully explain to her why you are making the decision too. It will help her to understand why or why not.
  • At home sure, otherwise naw... Everybody is saying no but here is what I would tell her. And I wouldn't be lying. Thongs look stupid and are uncomfortable. Only poor people who can't afford proper underwear wear butt floss like that. Don't ask me what to say when she wants to wear lingerie or booty shorts though... :-)
  • Um hell no!
  • honestly i bought a thong when i was 12, it's not she's going to let anyone see it. or at least i hope to god she isn't. personally i can understand that you wouldn't want your daughter to buy one but maybe by letting her get one she'll realize they're not that comfortable and she won't think about buying anymore.
  • I'd find out why she wants to wear one and then decide how I feel about it. I don't know your standards or values, so it's something you need to decide if this is an issue you feel is worth putting your foot down. I personally don't see the need for such a young child to get new provocative underwear but that's my values.
  • No. Life takes away innocence fast enough... why help that process speed up?
  • Good God, why??
  • i agree with captain harley! Why?!! i think 11 is pretty young....
  • Sure,go ahead.Then when she's molested by some sick teacher or worse yet,attacked by one or more of her classmates,you can try to explain why she was dressed like that in the first place.If shes asking to wear them you can bet shes planing on showing them off.Kids these days have no problem attacking each other with no care for the consequences.You are the parent,the one who can either make her or break her,by what you let her get away with.Put your foot down now,before you dont have the chance again.
  • No. Putting on thongs can impart the spread of bacteria. Thong panties can cause vesica infections and urinary tract infections. These conditions can be very sore for women and aggravate if not cared for. Thongs can also aid in the dispersion of bacteria from one area to some other. The small string on a thong lets the anus and vagina to be got in touch with each other. There is no separation between the two orifices which will allow fecal substances to get into the vagina. Other bacteria like group B strep disease and Escherichia coli can be passed into the anus and vagina also. The danger of spreading bacteria between the anus and vagina is one reason why women may keep off getting into thong panties. There are ways to minimise the danger of spreading bacteria. Women who decide to wear thongs can preclude bacterial infections by buying cotton thongs. It is best to stay away from thongs that are made from other fabrics like spandex and nylon. This may not be an easy selection to make for some women who want to have a certain mode of panties. A lot of the more popular and attracting undergarment modes for women are not made in cotton. They are indeed made in spandex, nylon and polyester stuff. This is the case for thongs and regular panties also. Magnetic panty styles make women less protected to buying non-cotton undergarments. However, women must see that their health is more important than what their underclothes looks like. If thong panties are going to be put on, they had better be 100% cotton. Women who buy any style panty should at least have cotton material in the private parts area. It is significant that women don't sleep in thongs or other panties overnight. Sleeping in thongs can make bacteria to grow and spread near the vagina and anus. Bacteria can develop and lurk when thongs are put on for a long period of time. This is due to movement during daily activities, sweat and convenience habits. There is also movement during sleep, which can agitate areas of the vagina and anus in women. Thongs can make small tearing between these areas, which invite infection. Every women needs to know that extra personal care must be practiced when deciding to wear thongs. http://74.125.45.132/search?q=cache:eCmlFAZU0DAJ:www.ithongs.net/guide/about-thongs.html+dangers+of+thongs&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=8&gl=us&client=firefox-a
  • Way to young!...NO.
  • Look - i'm a deffinite NO but the thing is if she's wanting to and you "lay down the law" and tell her no - there's a good chance she'll do it anyway, and make some ...unsavory.... contacts.... - uhm.... all i can say is figure out a way to say "no" without making her want to rebel....... cause it would likely lead to worse otherwise..... at 11!?!?
  • You will get all kinds of advice but you are best equipped to make this kind of decision for whats best for your daughter. (maturity, personality, ETC.)
  • i wore my first thong when i was 13 yearsold. thereisn't really a need to be wearin one yet at her age if for some reason she wants to wear them besause they are cute there are alot of other styles of underwear that are cute like boyshorts.
  • 11?? no way! What is she gonna wear when shes 20? no undies? you gotta leave something for maturity.
  • I think the question *is*: 'Do I want my daughter to become sexually active?' People continuously talk about how kids are becoming sexually active at a younger age. I think it can be attributed *somewhat* to how kids dress like adults. So, it's a big no for me.
  • Thongs are more for practicality rather than for want. You wear one to reduce lines, etc. I think you should buy her the most uncomfortable thong you can find, a size too small maybe. Seriously. See if you can turn her off of them on her own like this. I know I try to avoid even the most comfortable of thongs.
  • Fact from fiction, truth from diction. I believe 73% of the people really know their kids. So the thought for me would be why she wanted them? My 1st thought would be that it is because her friend or some gal she admires wears them. If she seem to be overly occupied with with boys you might want to wait on it. Everywhere you look in today's society the lines between love and sex. Listen to any music or watch any show or movie getting naked in bed or having sex is one of the top 2 things on the list to achieve with the opposite sex. 11yr olds do not have fashions that I know of requiring the avoidance of panty lines. And sleep overs were mentioned. If the friends she has are wearing thongs I would sure like to know for what? I had an 11yr old I would have to say no. When she was 12 maybe she could wear them when she is home to try them out, but until she has fashions where it would be useful to wear them, she stays out of them.
    • Lucifee
      Yeah our own parents made us by sex and love.
  • NO NO NO. You'd save money using dental floss for panties.
  • keep in mind now she wants to wear thong and next she s gonna want to be a stripper
  • ask her daddy...or her grandpa....
  • ya i wore my first thong at 5 and g string at 7 i feel sexy
  • in no way shape or form should I child at that age be wearing that kind of underwear, would you allow her to wear bright red lace underwear? Even for myself I never wore thongs until I was 16 and I wore the wider sports ones because I was in a few sports and they were more comfortable under the uniforms.
  • Why not?
  • She probably knows someone her age that does, tell her no one is going to see her underwear anyway.
  • Clothing can undoubtedly become an issue starting as early as 11 years old. As a mother and a teacher, I believe that there is something to wear for all ages and occasions. Of course, a thong is not appropriate at that age. Would you allow her to wear a negligee? As a parent, you are responsible of your child's appearance and the impression it creates on others. Don't allow her to wear something that could make her look cheap.
  • tell her to shut up and act her age.
  • Here's a really easy rule of thumb: Let your daughter wear what she wants as long as you are still able to take a picture of her wearing it and not get put in prison. Now unfortunately, taking a picture of an 11 year old in a thong may very well land you in the big house. I think that's enough of a reason to say no.
  • Tell her underoos are WAY MORE FUN!!!
  • As long as she is not showing it to the wrong parties.
  • I think she is just a tad young to be wearing these, hell shes not even a teenager yet, tell her there will be lots of time for this later, be young while you can, you will grow up all too soon.
  • No, let her clean her bedroom and then start on the kitchen.
  • Sure ... why not ? Unless that is you know she has plans to go around showing it off .... +5
  • ya shure let her wear thongs if she wants to feel like a slut then ya let her. but it also kid of depends on if she has a shaved or hairy snatch. when guys look up her skirts they want shaved.
  • First: WHY DOES YOUR 11-YEAR OLD DAUGHTER KNOW WHAT A THONG IS, LET ALONE BE WANTING TO WEAR ONE!? Second: WHAT KIND OF A QUESTION IS THIS? WHY IS THERE ANY HESITATION IN YOUR MIND ABOUT SAYING HEEELLL NOOOOOO
  • Tell her it's a jockey strap and it's only worn for athletic events. It was first marketed by the Jockey Company about 1920 and it is so common among athletes that they are all called "jock strappers" or just "jocks". It's certainly not anything to make a fuss about.
  • As long as she has clothes covering them, I find it hard to see where the problem is.
  • Oh if it's bad then go ahead.
  • 8-20-2017 It only depends on who she intends to show it to.
