Would you Let Your Teen Get Breast Implants?!?

I have three teenage girls. If they asked me, and thankfully they have not, to allow them breast implants, I would be devastated. I would be devastated because I would know that the media machine had gotten to them. The standard of beauty so mercilessly imposed on girls and women is a mighty and relentless animal. A parent has a difficult challenge combating the messages in magazines and television and movies and music. There are lots of good reasons I could give my daughters for why a "boob job" for them is a horrible idea.

But I know that if I did not turn off the TV as they were growing up and at the same time, religiously encourage their self-appreciation by telling them they are perfect and beautiful and important inside and out, I think once they are desirous of altering their bodies, it may be too late.

What do you think?!? Positive self-image is a lifelong endeavor, which needs to start long before they develop breasts, yes?!?
