Shemiras Eiynayim regarding unproperly dressed female children

May a man see a young girl who is not modestly dressed not during times of prayer or Torah learning?[1]

It is forbidden for a man to look at an immodestly dressed girl, even if the girl is a very young age, starting from when the girl’s body is developed enough to cause attraction. If the girl’s body is not yet developed enough to cause attraction then it is permitted for a man to see her when he is not involved in Davening or Torah learning, and the laws of Shemiras Eiynayim do not apply.
