I can't see the video at work so I can't really say but just off of the title I'm repulsed. Why is society in a rush to make children grow up? :-(

No freaking way this can't be child abuse.

The mother seems like a complete stage mother who is trying to exploit her kid to fill some void. I don't like it at all.

no... way... wtf is the world coming to? 1) she is way to young to be given botox, and too young to even have wrinkles. 2) Even giving your daughter the expectation that she HAS to look this way at any age is wrong, but her doing it at this age 3) The mom is doing the injections...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sick:"><br><br>
nothing about this is right <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:"><br>
I agree there is no way this cannot be considered child abuse?

Well, first of all, it is illegal for anyone who isn't an authorized licensed professional to administer Botox (in most cases, the people who are legally able to do this is a dermatologist, RN, or other licensed pro, such as a medical doctor). Under NO circumstances is a esthetician legally able to do this procedure unless they are also a doctor or RN who is properly supervised!<br><br>
Secondly, I think this is just sick and repulsive.

Disgusting. What a sad lesson to teach a little girl, that she's not worth anything aside from what she looks like. It's abuse.

Some of these "pageant moms" need to get their heads examined! It's so disturbing that any parent could do this to their child and I agree that it's a form of abuse.

No. This should not happen. Children need to grow up, not be taught how to be little prostitutes.

How is she being taught to be a prostitute? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"><br><br>
Why is this woman allowed to be a mother and not in jail?

The 8 year old looked like she didn't know why she was getting the injection at all and the mother was feeding the answer to her.</div>

I know at one point the interviewer asked why she was getting them and the daughter laughed, said "I dunno" and looked at mum.

I was just commenting on the phenomenon of companies marketing beauty products for pre-pubescent girls and nurturing their sexualization, which is not healthy, can lead to a number of cognitive dysfunctions, etc.<br><br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjAVL5zFrlU&feature=player_embedded</a>

Rotoshave, I think the problem you have is with the sexual objectification of women in the media not sexualisation (why shouldn't girls/women have sexuality?). In no way is this teaching women to be prostitutes and while pretty disgusting, children's pageants don't have anything to do with sex. Likely to cause image problems? Yes. Does it turn children into sexual objects? No.

Rotoshave, there is a huge difference between women feeling as sexual objects and nothing more, compared to a girl having image problems. I had image problems, but I was far from a sexual object. Making women feel like sexual objects would be more akin to marketing sexy underwear and teaching them that they are there to serve men, then saying "Oh lala you can have skin like this".<br><br>
Beauty, and sex are very different things that I feel you have crossed in your head.

Your telling me these girls aren't being turned into sex objects:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://cynicalreview.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/beauty-queen.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_tJ1sghBiuaU/S4QyESTBrVI/AAAAAAAAKZ4/_GXwfDF3pg4/s400/child_beauty_pageant_01.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.glogster.com/media/5/15/72/60/15726054.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
The truth is that the media and cosmetic companies are forcing young girls into unrealistic, and unhealthy, perceptions of beauty, perfection, and sexuality, and are sexualizing their bodies, making them into sexual beings with an assortment of thongs for 7 years olds, make up kits for 8 year olds and a plethora of toys (Bratz Bayz, for example) that exhibit highly sexualized toddlers and pre-teens to be bought. This is big business. These kids haven't even gone through puberty yet, but they are talking about boys, showing off their bodies, wearing skimpy outfits and starving themselves to keep themselves thin. And that's not right at all.
