I have already said to her all the things you would expect, we are all different, there is no "normal", etc but NOTHING helps. I have bought her a book about puberty etc to read and ask questions which she loves but still doesn't help her accept that she will need to wait until her body is ready. In frustration and because it upsets me to see her so worried about this at age 10!!, I told her that if she still hasn't developed when she is about to start hight school (in 2 1/2 years) then I will buy her a training bra with SMALL padding. I thought this had helped but now she is begging me to let her do this now.
I would buy her the padded bra if it makes her feel better.It's a phase that will pass.My now 15 yo old was a late bloomer( you should see her now...LOL) We bought the padded bra.It wasn't a topic she shared among her peers but she felt more relaxed around them.It is tuff being a girl and girls can be so cruel to one another.she will look back and laugh one day but she will also remember her Mommy was there for her.*Hugs*

You know she is still young and will start the change in her own time.I think you should just stick to the waiting game. If you give in to this, if she does not develop big enough breasts that she likes. She will be asking for breast enhancement in her teens.

I would let her buy a padded bra.. If it was just occasional upset, then I wouldnt be so bothered by it... But if my daughter was upset over it daily & it was possibly effecting her school life & her overall happiness then id get her the bra. . As for the breast implant comment.. I dont think this will LEAD to that... Most girl now days want to change their breast. If they are big they want to perk them up. if they are small they want them bigger. Its just the thing now. But going through a SURGERY is serious! Putting on a padded bra in the morning is not serious.. Its like putting on boots/heels to make you taller, makeup to cover up blemishes or pimples. hair coloring to bring out your face...
Good Luck with your lil girl! :) the hardest yrs are be the best yrs!
