Somebody explain to me why an 8-year-old needs botox!!!

I've never been a fan of parents who insist on living vicariously through their children. From sports dads to pageant moms, I'll never understand their obsession to mold their children to become the stars they never could become, like a phoenix rising from the ashes of their own broken dreams.

Now that I got that off my chest, here's a video that's sure to disgust more than a few of you:

Why does an 8-year-old need botox? Sorry, but botox is for aging socialites desperately trying to recapture what they used to look like in their 20s. You can argue that last point all you want, fine, but it's certainly not for pre-pubescent pageant girls already inundated on a continuous basis with the supposed importance of looks. I also find it curious that this "mother" refuses to name the source of her daughter's botox injections yet insists that it's all legal. Legality aside, I would certainly question the ethics of any medical professional who would give access to botox to an 8-year-old, even with parental, I mean, consent.

This is most definitely going beyond the realm of spray tans (for that Oompa-Loompa look!) and big hair. I understand it's becoming a trend. You know, monkey see, monkey do!



  1. As I watched this video, I was in DISBELIEF! When are we going to stop being "sheeple?" Just because others are doing it doesn't make it right - where is the defense of her daughter's looks? Who CARES what other think of your looks and furthermore, it's a COMPETITION OF LOOKS and the other competitors (along w/their mothers) will try everything in the book to sabotage another competitor. WHY ins't the mother of this little girl in jail for what she's doing to her daughter?

  2. Isn't what this mother is doing to her child AWFUL?

    I heard on the news yesterday that the child has been placed in child protective services.
