That's when you perform the classic Jeff Foxworthy. Walk around the corner, come back then say loudly. Where are your parents!!!!

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 have totally timed my son out in public and he's 12. He's a good kid, but he knows that if he acts like a baby, he'll be treated like one.

Nah, just a bit annoyed. I predicted the down-votes though. I'm just content I said something, even if it made me look like a whiny, over-sensitive bitch.

I personally think like all little kids want imitate their mom,dad, or siblings. maybe she just wanted to be like mommy. I'm not saying op should get her a bra, just saying that might be the reason

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!!

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

whatever the name for it, i hope nowadays 6 years old don't wear bras (even those ones that you wear when your chest is growing....) or only for swimwuit maybe...

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

are you implying that the 6-year-olds have children? I'm severely confused by every single one of your recent FML comments.

12 year olds have always had sex. The problem is that, as society has become more complex, and it has taken longer to mature, 12 year olds are no longer young adults in most places.

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.

The daughter is lucky OP isn't my mom. If I threw a tantrum, my mom would just walk away from me. Then again it did teach me to shut up, but I sure as hell never asked for a push up bra at age six.

#9, I'm not sure why you got thumbed down -- I had a similar thought. Maybe it's because your count was too lenient -- the masses wanted to see the little brat sentenced to 50 or more!

Amateurs. When I was three I had a wife and four kids, plus two more kids from a previous marriage.

Let me, "My cousin insisted on wearing one at a big family party, it fell off while she was running, stopped to pick the pushup bra up proudly, and continued running. True story."
