Just when I think I've heard it all...
See mommy's new nose and double D's? haha
I have an idea...Why doesn't somebody come out with a book explaining to kids why we can't afford to drive across town or go out to dinner
But I digress...
Discuss---Is this a good or bad thing? Personally, I'm not too hip on teahing kids that going under the scalpel to constantly change ones appearence
is the norm...It almost seems like pre-conditioning, and putting too much emphasis on perfection...
Salzhauer got the idea for a book after noticing that women were coming into his office with their kids in tow. He says that mysterious doctor's
visits can be frightening for children. "Parents generally tend to go into this denial thing. They just try to ignore the kids' questions
completely." But, he adds, children "fill in the blanks in their imagination" and then feel worse when they see "mommy with bandages," he says.
"With the tummy tucks, [the mothers] can't lift anything. They're in bed. The kids have questions."
