Teenage Boys in Modeling

I am a mother with four boys (12,15,17,19) Recently we were approached by a talent scout who asked me if I ever considered getting them into modeling. I hadn't, but I wasn't opposed to the idea either. I think they are attractive young men who could make a lot of money which would be great for their college funds. We went ahead and signed them up and they are now in an agency with several photographers offering them modeling jobs from time to time. My recent concern is trying to decide what I consider appropriate modeling jobs. They have appeared in everything from back to school catalogs to teenie bopper magazines. This poll was created to get feedback from parents and teenage boys alike, on what is appropriate for male teenage models.
First off: Are you a parent or a teenage boy?
Parent
Teenage boy
At what age do you think it is appropriate for boys to go into modeling?
Any age
6 and up

.Recently, my 15 and 17 year old did a photo shoot for a teen girl magazine featuring trading cards of various boys. The photographer had them pose shirtless. I was unsure if this was acceptable for a magazine intended for young girls. Do you think it is ok?
Sure. They're boys. Big deal if they're shirtless.
No, this is not appropriate for a magazine intended for pre-teen girls.
Where should I draw the line for my 12 year old being photographed? What is NOT acceptable?

Unbuttoned shirt (partially bared chest)
Shirtless in swim suit
Shirtless in jeans
