    Mom Who Gave Child Botox Condemned

    I don't think I would go as far as saying this is abuse-but seriously why would you do that? She needs to take a look in the mirror and worry about how her own fat ass looks. "She asked me for the injections" Oh well,in that case...:no2:

    I dont know.. as a parent I realize that there are some unpleasant things my child will probably deal with. Getting shots for different diseases, injuring themselves playing, maybe stitches or broken bones. Most definitely scrapes and bruises.

    But to purposely put a child through pain simply because you cant say the word no.. What if the child had a reaction to the botulism they are shooting into her face? What if the reaction was so severe it killed her. Granted none of this happened, but it could, and if it did, wouldnt that be considered abuse?

    i dont think its abuse though i have to say if i had a daughter i would not do that and does seem to me that the mother is not using comman sense comman sense is the key word here

    Unless she was injecting her daughter with something harmful, i do not think it can be called abuse. But i will admit, i never bothered to look at the harmful effects of botox.

    None the less, what she is doing is wrong, because she is indirectly harming the emotional wellbeing of the child, because of her personal aspirations. She is putting the false mindset into her young child, who are easily influenced that she is not pretty, and she needs something artificial to make her pretty.

    I can personally see this child growing up with serious self consciousness issues, and letting herself be taken advantage of by emotional predators.

    I never understood child beauty pageants, it seems like, the parents are doing it for themselves, not for the child.

    Yeah thats where Im sorta split in two as well. Though I dont think she is seriously abusing her child, she is harming them mentally.

    I cant wrap my head around any of it really. What child has wrinkles that need botulism injected into them? As an adult, I think its your choice if you want to use something that can be extremely harmful into your body. But to do so to a child, for purely ascetic purposes is foolish and could have been deadly.

    Again, if this child had died from the use of it, would she then be charged with abuse?

    No, unless injecting botox had a legal age limit(which i am surprised there isn't), and this child was below it. Or there was specific guidelines to injecting botox and she failed to take the safety measures necessary.

    It may not be abuse, but it is certainly parenting judgement call FAIL.

    Abuse? No, not really.

    However, I think she is setting that girl up to be one of those girls who look in a mirror and see flaws where everyone else sees a beautiful person. Who hates the way she looks, and alters herself until she looks more like a plastic doll than a human..

    When the girl piped up "Hey mommy, I want Botox."
    Perhaps her mother could have said "Honey, why? You are beautiful, you don't need to inject stuff into your face because it couldn't make you more gorgeous than you are now."

    My niece bugs me when she says she thinks she's too fat, or that the little bit of hair she has on her upper lip makes her ugly... Lord help me if she asks for botox.

    And I don't even know an 8yo who could tell me what Botox is, so I wonder how the girl learned about it an what it's for?

    That is exactly what bothered me.It's not so much the Botox being harmful,just what kind of message is she instilling in that child.Only 8 years old and already worried that her appearance is sub par.What's going to happen when she's 13 or 14?:no2:

    I guess the mom said she herself does it at home and the little girl watches her.
