Mother injects eight-year-old daughter with Botox

2 comments

Summary of story from The Huffington Post, March 25, 2011

Kerry Campbell of California admits to injecting her eight-year-old daughter Britney Campbell with Botox, because she wants her child to be a “star.”

A licensed beautician, Campbell insists that Botox is becoming a trend on the beauty pageant circuit and she doesn’t want her daughter to be at a disadvantage.

Worryingly, Britney Campbell says: “my friends think it’s cool I have all the treatments and they want to be like me. I check every night for wrinkles, when I see some I want more injections. They used to hurt, but now I don’t cry that much.”

Campbell also revealed that Britney “gets waxed monthly, which gets rid of her fluffy leg hair and makes sure she wont develop pubic hair in the future.”

On a fairly recent episode of “Toddlers & Tiaras,” a mother forced her five-year-old to get her eyebrows waxed while she trembled and wailed in the salon chair.

Campbell told the British tabloid, the Sun: “More mothers should do it for their daughters.”

WVoN comment: They already do and that’s the issue.

    Why are we not shocked anymore by these kinds of stories? Little girls are being parcelled up, sexualised and handed on a plate to any perverted individual who wants to have a peek, and who is the perpetrator…the mother!!! what would I say to her…probably nothing…! As a mother…as a human being…I think in her presence I would be struck speechless!!!

  2. I am a mother and a grandmother of an 8 year old girl. I am shocked by this story but not suprised as I think our society is grooming little girls and young women to become sex objects for the use and abuse of men. But also as some mothers are colluding in this abuse this denotes to me a widespread social problem. I believe commercial exploitation of children and commercial sexual exploitation of young women is a form of gender based violence – and should be tackled seriously and sytematically by governments, with programmes in schools, parenting classes and above all addressing media representations of sexualised young women which are internalised by women and girls. At the end of the day though, this type of physical and psychological abuse should be dealt with as child abuse.
