This week’s dilemma is as follows:

You have a sixteen year old daughter who’s been depressed about the flatness of her boobs since she was fourteen. She feels totally inadequate compared to her friends, and can’t cope with the fact that she’s flat-chested. You’ve spoken to her about it several times, and told her that the size of her boobs don’t matter to the right people.

She’s still unbearably depressed about her breasts though, and one day she comes to you with money that she’s been saving up for a breast op, and asks you to go with her.

What do you do? Do you try to forbid her from getting the breast enhancement procedure, or do you go along and offer moral support?

What would you do?
