I need to talk to my kids about my up coming surgery. I'm getting a boob job but am finding it difficult to explain it to them. Especially to my 8 year old daughter. I dont want her to feel like she needs to change herself to be happy( even though that exactly what I'm doing) Please help!!!!

I agree with Krista. It is a tough one. Maybe you don't need to explain it right now. Wait until you have it done and THEN explain it.

I think that would be the easier route.

Man, that is really a tough one, isn't it? If it's due to your breasts being smaller due to breast-feeding, then that might be easier to explain -- you could say that you're very, very happy that you breastfed, but that it did change your breasts, and you're just going to get them fixed so that they're the way they were before.

If your daughter is the more oblivious type, you could always say that you're going in for a small surgery, and wait until she's older before you explain what you had done. (Obviously this won't work if you're going from an A cup to a DDD...)

Other than that, it's a toughie...you're doing something that sends a very specific message to her. And if you feel that it's worth it, then you'll need to work hard to counteract that message throughout her life.
