yes i am a noob in starting threads so please.. if i did/do something wrong.. don't bite my head off..just tell me and i will comply.. i did not see any topic similar to this but if there is.. please lock it..




My Beautiful Mommy tells the story of a little girl whose mother gets a tummy tuck and breast implants (did you guys know that this combo is referred to as a "mommy makeover"?) along with a nose job for good measure. Before the woman goes into surgery, she explains to her daughter, "You see, as I got older, my body stretched and I couldn't fit into my clothes anymore. Dr. Michael is going to help fix that and make me feel better." It's unclear why the mother also chooses rhinoplasty, but she does tell her daughter that the nose will appear "different, my dear—prettier!" (Because that's an excellent message to send to your daughter: isn't she going to think that her nose is inadequate, too?)

your thoughts?

-edit [agen]-
in fairness to the book, i think its main purpose is to educate children why their parents look "battered" after surgery.. i mean.. it is kind of scary to not be able to know why your mom.. or dad.. is in that state.. and when they recover.. they look a little bit different [ okaay.. maybe some with be a lot different]

-edited-
personally i don't think such a book should be aimed at under 8s.. which is basically its target market.. i think the author should have just made a self-help book targeted at mums/dad who are having trouble explaining to their children why the need for plastic surgery..T_T

Wow, it's targeted at young children? I think they should change the audience profile.

Most kids who's parents are insecure seem to grow up with insecurities of their own.

i just find it demeaning and disgusting. also, i feel that we are who we are, we do not need any plastic surgery to make ourselves look better.
