|A pic from “Toddlers and Tiaras”|
The story, first reported by The Sun (so definitely consider the source) was picked up by non-tabloid news outlets last week. I was shocked to see pictures of the 34-year-old mom injecting her 8-year-old daughter’s face with Botox and other fillers every few months which she does in the hopes of keeping her “baby faced” so she’ll have a better chance to become a model, actress and superstar as a teenager.
You can see the original Sun report and actual pictures of the mother and daughter from the story here:
The mother from Birmingham, England buys the Botox and Restaylane online and injects them herself. According to the story, they are now living in San Francisco. What would I do if I ever see this awful mother and her poor little daughter walking down the street in SF? Well, nothing really, I’d just walk by feeling really sorry for the daughter.
Besides the fact it must be illegal to order these products online to inject into a child this young, I would assume this is considered child abuse in California, right?
If this story is true and she’s getting this many injections at such a young age, what will she look like by college? Hopefully not this….
All kidding aside, this is one of the most disturbing stories I’ve read in a while, so I thought I’d share. But hopefully this mother is stopped by family, friends or the law before she psychologically butchers her daughter’s self-esteem and causes her anymore physical pain.
I remember my mom making a rule I had to wear a dress once a week in elementary school, even if I did wear them with my hi-top Converse. Could you imagine having a mother who forced you to get waxes and Botox injections when you were 8-years-old? It’s almost too crazy to even think about.
