really, I blame the parents when kids have fits of epic proportions in public because obviously they allow them to at home. regardless of what the kid wanted (that's a whole mother issue but could easily be explained if they have older kids around) that type of behavior is not OK. OP I hope you don't ever give into those fits again, it will hurt her in school and in he long run. I know its not the popular topic here but its still important.
I don't think that's necessarily true, my 6 year old sister knows that tantrum shit won't fly at home but she's done it a time or two in public because she knows she'll cause a scene and that we can't discipline her (she's put in time out and has to sit there until she's been quiet for 6 minutes) like we do at home. She does it to try to get us embarrassed enough to give in and get what she wants.
I think I speak for the entire fml community when I say that I really REALLY hope you did not give in.
Maybe, if she really really wants one (probably because all of the girls in her class also have one.. Idk) you could buy her a soft, cotton one (pushup is like, impossible) But you could better tell her why she doesn't need one yet, and explain why women wear bras and you can only wear pushups when you actually have breasts... Good luck OP And for all the comments above, how the **** could the OP give in on buying her daughter a ******* push up bra? You can't even find one for only her chest size, how the **** would you find a cup?
Yes. Please give in to the child by buying her something like the one she wanted and telling her it's better. That won't raise a monster. And the bra fitting the child is a non issue. I wanted a car at 12. I'm sure the reason my parents didn't get it for me was they don't come in my size.
go into a la senza girl store. take a look around. you can find pretty much anything padded in there. And you can find padded 'bras' for a 6yr old. and padded bikinis, and padded and push up...welcome to the new reality....kids are not allowed to be kids. Unless parents stomp their foot down on any friggin sales associate that comes near their 6yr old kid or preteen for that matter, and swears they will not let their foot off their throats unless they back away with the padded boobie stupidity!!! (sorry, have a 6yr old daughter, this padded push up stuff for lil girls drives me nuts!).
because #5 mentioned she didn't know if there was such a store to get such tiny bras for little girls. I was pointing out that sadly, and disgustingly, yes, yes there is. It was the one a neighbour mentioned to me in a convo about these types of things, and I am sure it isn't the only store that offers that type of thing. it is one that I now know to steer clear of wirh my kid.
Indeed, I live in the Netherlands and I didn't even know there are padded bras and bikini tops for girls. What I was talking about wasn't that the OP should give in on giving her daughter a push up, that's ridiculus, but instead you could give her one that isn't padded, and special made for children, they're shaped like sports bras. Why is everyone thinking I was talking about lingerie or something? I was talking about non-sexualised underwear special made for kids
To wear a bra, one must first have boobs to fill it.. unless she's severely overweight, I see no reason for a 6 year old to wear a bra
If the other kids in class somehow persuaded their children, the little girl is maybe scared she falls outside the group, since children always want to be grown-up and stuff But I don't know how the children in their town behave. Nowadays, even ******* twelve year olds have sex and stuff so I'm not suprised by anything
She probably just wants to feel more grown up. Maybe find another way to validate her? After you make it clear that push-up bras and temper tantrums are not acceptable, of course.
I dunno i was thinking more along the lines of seeing a commercial. She's a little girl who likes pretty things, she probably saw a Victoria secret commercial thought a bra gave her wings like the women in the commercial and boom crazy desire for whatever bra they were advertising. I know a lot of cartoon stations turn into more mature programming at night that is targeted at the mom audience. So it isn't really a stretch to imagine how she saw a Victoria secret commercial.
If she craves to feel grown up you could buy her a lipstick so she feels pretty?
My cousin insist on wearing one in a big family party. They fall while she was running. Stopped to pick them proudly and continue running. True story.
