Ok…not really a great debate. Just wondering what others thoughts are on this topic.
To that I replied I’m sure it’s not an issue now but once they start learning about puberty in school this year, they may become curious and they could possibly start seeing each other differently. And start looking.
As far as them being in a room with the boys, we figure seeing them in their boxer briefs is no worse than seeing them in their bathing suits. The main concern was the girls changing their tops. Is that a double standard?
In any case, the specific issue has been resolved. One of the girls has always arrived at the arena already dressed. The other girl has started doing the same. She decided she’d rather come dressed than go to her own change room.
I am glad that the parent brought their concern forward as I think it was important topic to address.
My take on the issue is that once the question is asked – it’s probably time.
Maybe next year we start the season out with separate rooms.
Have you had to address gender issues in sporting activities?
What age do you think co-ed teams should start dressing separately?
