"The girls that (teens and tweens) are looking up to, Miranda Cosgrove ("iCarly"), Victoria Justice ("Victorious"), Selena Gomez ("Wizards of Waverly Place"), these are teen stars that are good girls. You would never see them behaving badly or rolling out of a club," said Shoket.

Madonna and Diane Goldie agree it's a mother's responsibility to guide a young daughter to make the right choices.

"I don't have to be her friend. I'm her parent," said Goldie. "We can be friends when (she is) 30, but for now we do have the back and forth."

Madonna told ABC News that a mother's job is to "say 'no!'" She added, "I'm very strict about the way my daughter dresses. We have arguments about how short the skirt is ... is there cleavage?"

Lourdes said she pushes the envelope, knowing her mother won't hesitate to push back. "I mean obviously I don't agree with all of her decisions. I know it's coming. But I might as well try and see what happens."

Seventeen's Shoket says that attitude is only natural for girls in a crucial stage of development. Said Shoket, "They are starting to develop their own sense of personality, and what feels right and it's about pushing boundaries."
