My friend, Cindy (not real name), has daughter, Kaori (not real name), that's 17 years old. She's 4 feet and eleven inches. She weighs 94 lbs. She's also very flat chested. She is depressed that people also keep mistaking her for a 12 year old -boy-.
Cindy keeps telling her things like "You're just a late bloomer.", "You'll hit a growth spurt. Eventually. Someday.", "Small breasts aren't -that- bad. It's not your fault washboards have more 'up top'. I'm sure you'll find -somebody- who likes them.". Yeah. ... Cindy is an idiot when it comes to cheering people up.
Anyway, Kaori no longer believes a word that her mother says when it comes to how she will "grow".
She's really depressed that she's going to be like this for the rest of her life.
I regard Kaori as my niece, even though we're not blood related. It saddens me to see her like this. Is there anything I can do to cheer her up?
