8 year old "stuffing" her bra...what would u do?
My middle daughter is 8. She very much a girly girl.. very social, popular...even in 3rd grade they have "groups". My oldest is 11 and has recently starting developing breasts...so I have been pushing her to wear a little sports bra or training bra. She hates it... shes the opposite of my middle daughter... straight tom boy.
A while ago someone gave me a bunch of clothes for my oldest. there were some bras in their like size itty bitty...but they have a little bit of padding in them. So I thought I threw those ones out.
One day we were finishing up at school and I looked at my middle daughter and was like wtf???when did she start getting little speed bumps. I didn't say anything just felt puzzled. So later that night I realized she had kept one of the padded bras (not exactly stuffed but still) and had worn it to school that day. I just laughed to myself. I didnt say anything to her... just let it go.
Would you have said something to your daughter if she did this? I figure Ill let it go if I don't make a big deal about it maybe it wont be a big deal to do it. She hasnt worn it again since that day. Honestly, I think all I could do was laugh... just because we are at that point with my oldest that shes developing so its kind of a "fun" moment we have between my girls and I. Trying to make them feel secure with their bodies... my oldest is completely embarrassed and hates it ... Also, I thought making a big deal of it being inappropriate to wear might make oldest feel worse as well bc she actually is getting breasts. So i didn't want to to seem like a bad thing to have them.
