My daughter was asked to go swimming at the gym with a friend and her family. The other girl's dad requested that in order to go, my dd needed to wear a t-shirt and shorts over her bathing suit while swimming since that is his family's rule. (he's never seen my dd's modest, one-piece suit and didn't ask our dress standards for swimming, just started his preference.) This event will be in a public pool where dress standards range from his very conservative dress to string bikinis. This is not a church youth group activity or a Christian camp with a dress code, simply a public gym. I thought his request was interesting since I just took his kids ice skating and never asked that they don pants instead of their normal skirts for the occasion. So, do you as a parent, ask other people's kids to conform to your personal preference in dress in order for them to be seen with your family? Or if your personal preference is not so strict, would you explain that to the other parent, or just have your kid be subject to his rules?
