Mom Pressuring Daughter to Have Breast Implants

posted by Linda Mintle

It’s girls gone wild with mum leading the way! (Dad left 12 years ago!)

14- year-old Britney Marshall  lives in England with her family. She looks like a normal young teen, except the family photo could easily be mistaken for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Britney is the youngest of five daughters–all blonde and all endowed to the ridiculous! Well, not naturally endowed. Her 53-year-old mother is wondering what she did wrong in raising Britney.

Are you ready for why? Brace yourself, I’m guessing this is not something any of my readers struggle with in terms of their daughters!

It is because Britney may refuse breast implants– a rite of passage among mum and the four sisters. Britney’s mum is worried because young Brit doesn’t want size 32 GG breasts like she has ( I didn’t even know there was such a size! And one daughter is a 34 HH–this must be even bigger). She wants young Brit to follow in her and her sisters’ footsteps, or should we say bra size! Mum loves the look of fake breasts and really hopes her daughter comes around. All her sisters have had breast implants.

The women in Britney’s family boast 13 operations and six pints of silicon. The price tag for all the plastic surgery could put Americans back to work!

The crazy part here is that the kid is the sensible one, saying she wants to focus on school and her future, not her body.

And it gets better, mum also has four boys who are siding with Brit!

So Britney, I’m with your brothers—be different, be yourself!

And mum, take some of the money you have for more surgery and use it to find a good mental health therapist and get a copy of my book, Making Peace With Your Thighs (and other body parts). Read the chapter on Breasts for a little sanity in your thinking.

    I think this mom need some brain treatment. She can’t put pressure on her daughter for breast implant.

    I don’t think her mother should put pressure on her to have breast implants because the woman that wants breast implants must take the decision and her friends and family should only advice her and tell their opinion about it.
    I was the only person that decided a Toronto breast augmentation surgery can improve my look and increase my self confidence. Luckily all my friends agreed that I need such a surgery and they supported me since the beginning. If my mother would had told me that I shouldn’t have the surgery I would have done it anyway because it was my dream not hers.

    I have read your blog; I think her mother is extra worried for her. It’s not a big issue; I think it’s natural at the present time.
