What Can I Do If Someone Stares at My Breasts?

Since I Developed Breasts, I Sometimes Get Stares — What Can I Do?

Go to an art museum or look at many magazine covers and you'll see that breasts are a subject of interest. Breasts feed babies and they help give the female body that hourglass shape, so it's understandable that people are interested. But it's not polite to stare at someone's breasts — it's rude and it can make a girl feel very uncomfortable.

If someone stares at yours, you can fold your arms over your chest and then look the person straight in the eye. That should send the message without you having to say anything. You also could hold your books in front of your chest. But if someone stares and it makes you uncomfortable, be sure to tell a parent or another adult.
