Botox for kids, this is some seriously demented shit.

    Hello

    Botox mommy goes on TV to defend giving child cosmetic surgery

    The whole spectacle of shows like "Toddlers and Tiaras" is unappealing to me, because it strikes right at that "Celebrity Rehab"/"Hoarders" voyeurism but adds a cherry topping of sad children to the mix. If I wanted to watch innocence lost in real time, I'd go down to a jail and ask to be locked up, because who wants to see that?!

    So when the Sun first broke the story of 8-year-old Britney
    Campbell and the routine Botox injections foisted on her by her
    pageant mom, I tried not to pay attention. What this little girl
    needs is less public attention, not more. She also needs Child
    Protective Services, but somehow none of the media outlets that have jumped to interview Britney's mom, Kerry (who administers the injections, as well as waxes her daughter's upper thighs), have bothered to call the authorities.

    Next stop on the Campbells' tour of horrors would be"Good Morning America," where Kerry today went on with Britney to discuss the controversy as well as defend her decision to put needles full of poison into her daughter's face to "get rid of the lines."

    Man, calm down, everyone! What's the big deal? This all seems totally safe and legitimate: The mom does it to herself (she's a part-time aesthetician so it's kosher) and she gets the Botox to inject into her child's head through an unnamed source who is "behind the doctor scene." It's all on the up-and-up. If anything, Kerry Campbell's only crime is being too good of a mother.

  2. let's not forget that kids are really spoiled these days. when i was a kid we were given lobotomies:

    He reads one of the entries. It's from his birthday, Nov. 30, 1960: "Mrs. Dully came in for a talk about Howard. Things have gotten much worse and she can barely endure it. Howard does sneaky little things, pinching and sticking pins in his little brother — and always seems to have the idea that everyone is against him. I explained to Mrs. Dully that the family should consider the possibility of changing Howard's personality by means of transorbital lobotomy. Mrs. Dully said it was up to her husband, that I would have to talk with him and make it stick."
