Dear Harriette: I have a stepdaughter in her early teens. Her body is changing and she's beginning to change her style and sense of fashion. She's into jeans and wants to be thought of as attractive by the boys at school. But my stepdaughter has a grown woman's body. She and her father had a huge fight recently over some low-rise jeans she was trying to wear that a friend gave her. She did not look nice in them. I am a very petite woman and she has told me flat out that I have nothing to tell her about clothes or how to dress because I don't know how she feels.
