Here is my best explanation:

'make another judgement' is the definition.

'girls going topless in front of son' is the subsidiary indication.

'girls' becomes 'lasses' (lass is a kind of girl).

'going topless' means to remove the first letter.

'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'front of son' becomes 'res' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

'lasses' with its initial letter taken away is 'asses'.

'asses' placed inside 'res' is 'reassess'.

'about' is the link.
