That is a video of a young child getting her eyebrows waxed. Yes, exactly what every small child needs right… Not only was the little girl crying, and begging not to have the cloth strip ripped off, but then her mother commented that normally she would have held her down while the waxxer ripped it of… Uh… What?
They try and bribe her with a bag of candy, or some kind of treats, and while seeing it for a moment it makes her perk up, but then when she realizes what exactly is going to happen she changes her tune really quick. Screaming, crying, begging… how could someone sit by and watch their child beg not to be put through unnecessary pain like that and continue through with it the way that mother did. I simply cannot wrap my head around it…
Then there is the mom who dressed her daughter up as Madonna… Not the 2010 sweat pants wearing Madonna… or the Mom Madonna… the 1990′s cone boob flaunting, pushing the limit Madonna…
And we wonder why little girls in our country are growing up with these image issues, and huge hang ups regarding breasts and what they are actually for.
I bet you in two years, or even ten years… you ask that little girl what breasts are actually for, and she won’t be able to give you an actual accurate answer… It won’t be anything to do with feeding babies… it will probably be along the lines of impressing judges or attracting men.
Which as a mother who is expecting a daughter really makes me sad. Not just for our society as a whole, but for the little girls who are actually going to be raised with this line of thinking.
I can see the pink clothes, tutu’s, and the girlie kind of things, but where do we draw the line between acceptable and grossly inappropriate.
Personally, I can’t say I have sat down and watched the show, granted I would probably throw something at my television or have a full blow heart attack… but just seeing these small little bits and pieces on the internet, I don’t understand how parents, and even the producers of this show… and child protective services don’t find actions like this a form of serious child abuse.
