Daughter Can Go Topless

I find it very exciting that girls go topless in public at European and Asian beaches, swimming pools, playgrounds, etc up to a fairly high age. In the "European" culture, not much is thought about this practice -- it's just natural. Such a practice in the USA would be not be allowed, even though there is absolutely no physical reason why a girl needs to wear a bra top.
Fortunately, we are quite OK with occasional nudity in our family. Usually this is accidental exposure, but sometimes it involves going around the home in various stages of undress. This is the case with my daughter, who is currently 12 years old. She feels perfectly comfortable being topless around the home, as she is somewhat of a "tom boy" and is flat chested. She thinks nothing of it, and I am happy she feels this way. When she goes to school, she wears a teen bra for modesty, but this bra comes off when she gets home. And in the summer, this means my daughter is usually bare chested along with her two brothers around the home and yard.
I think it would be quite educational for the family to vacation in Europe to get their different perspective on things.

Like Wally and familyexp, my daughter often goes topless at home. I enjoy the view on the weekends when her kids are gone and it's just the two of us at home.

Always good to hear of other daughters also going topless at home here in the USA -- so it's not entirely a European trait!

My daughter had to be taught modesty as she was a bit of a tomboy too.
