    It's been my experience that parents aren't watchful enough.

    Girls are more vulnerable to sexual assault and abuse. I have always been careful with my daughter to keep her safe. I am not controlling and she has freedom but am more wary than I was with my sons.

    All children need room to grow, breath and have fun but we live in a harsh cruel world and must look out for those we love.

      This is so true.

    I would say that's down to lack of trust and communication

      I believe that the double standard plays a part in this.   Many parents, especially fathers, want their daughter to be as innocent as possible.   They also believe that their daughters are their property -to be protected from the mean world!
