Child Beauty Pageants

I knew these things were fucked up, but this is just unbelievable

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...AXES-legs.html

Quote:
When a child smiles and flashes a couple of dimples, people usually comment on how adorable they look.

But when you are the eight-year-old daughter of a pageant mum, even the most endearing imperfection cannot be tolerated.

California mum Kerry Campbell has come under fire after admitting she injects her young daughter Britney with Botox to get rid of 'wrinkles' that appear on the girl's face when she smiles.

In a shocking example of how far some competitive parents will go in the name of pageant success, Kerry also waxes her daughter's upper legs in case she hits puberty and any 'fluffy hair' starts to appear.

Experts said the child is now at risk of long-lasting psychological problems because of the beauty treatments.

Kerry, a part-time beautician who also administers Botox on herself, claimed she only gives her daughter the treatment because when they were applying for pageants, her child asked her for it.

'We were getting into the pageants. I knew she was complaining about her face, having wrinkles, and things like that. When I brought it up to Britney she was all for it,' she told Good Morning America.

'She had watched me do it before. So when we first did it she was fine with it.'

When they spot 'wrinkles', Kerry gives her daughter five injections in three different locations on Britney's face.

Kerry would not comment on where she buys the expensive treatment from, saying only that she had 'a trusted source where I get it. He is a behind-the-scene doctor.'

'The few times that we did it, it would lessen the lines,' said Kerry. 'They wouldn't completely disappear, she's a kid. And we don't do so much to where it's going to make a big difference. Just on the lines.'

Kerry also admitted to waxing her daughter in the name of pageant success.

'They call it little fluffy hair,' she said. 'They get judged on all that stuff. It's a tough world, the pageant world, I'm telling you. The kids are harsh.'

Eight-year-old Britney added: 'I just don't think it's ladylike to have hair on your legs. I did that one time. It was super, super hard. It hurts.

Asked if she would like to be waxed again, the child quickly said: 'No.'

Experts said Kerry was at serious risk of damaging her daughter for life, both physically and psychologically.

Psychiatrist Dr. Charles Sophy said: 'When I first heard this story, I think my initial reaction is to be a little bit in disbelief, and a little bit horrified. There's a lot of psychological damage that can be caused.'

The girl's mother, however, insists she is a good mother and says she is not doing anything that other pageant mums would not do.

'I got influenced by some of the mums when we went to one of the pageants,' she said. They were telling me about the lines on her face. A lot of the mums are giving their kids Botox. It happens.

'I have a normal child. It's not breaking her spirit. She's happy. She runs around. She's smart.

'I'm a great mother. I've taken care of her by myself my whole life and nobody can really tell me what I'm doing is wrong. Because it's me. I live in my shoes. And she lives in hers. She's a happy kid and that's the bottom line.'
I honestly don't know how child beauty pageants are still legal.

Re: Child Beauty Pageants

These things should be regulated. Then again, it's happening to little girls, and the world has always used little girls as decor.

Re: Child Beauty Pageants

Do the "Who's Prettiest?" threads on the general page perpetuate this kinda activity?

If I had a daughter, I'd rather have her playing tennis and thinking that being strong and healthy like Lena or Vika or Serena is something to aspire to than trying to look like most models.

Everybody wants to be as attractive as they can, it's just human nature.

But it's another thing to sell the idea that you're only valuable if you're attractive, and that's where pushing kids into these stupid contests worries me.

Likewise. I would rather my kids be healthy. While we would all like beautiful daughters, I am not going to place utmost importance on it. What I would insist on is how well they carry themselves. Priority would be education, or skills training as a backup.

If the pageant world is such a tough world, then get out!

Everything you do continues long after you've gone
