I think the most ironic thing is though (regarding my family I should say), is my mom found it so wrong when i was that age for little girls to wear these types of things. When I was 12 she got pregnant with my little sister, and even then she would see the little padded bras at walmart and say something about it. Then when my sister was 11, Mom bought her a padded bra. Is there some sort of hypnosis going on in commercials that flip a switch in the parents head or something?
its the multiple child syndrome. Every parent suffers from it, including my own and i'm sure i will too.
First Child (moi) the guinnie pig, your sure what you are really doing and your ultra para about protecting this innocent and vulnerable little person, gets sick for first time pannic stations, wants get their ears pierced at 13? no way jose, wants to go out to play in the housing estate with their friends at 8 not a chance.
cotton wool syndrome will carry on with this one the entire time they are the first to do something, including growing up going to uni and flying to another country to get married
second child: they are more laied back on certain things when they come about cos they have been there before and sort of know what to expect, but they also know what they would have done differently the last time, and thus sometimes so go too far laid back, which can come back to haunt them sometimes. such as giving in to things they said no to the first child about because maybe the fight wasnt worth the hassle or something.
third child cops it in the middle because they know what they would have done differently on first and second, this child may also blame older siblings when she/ can't do something because they learnt their lesson with one of the older ones.
well thats how i observed it in my familly.
