Botox for Kids?
At first you might think that this is a joke, but its not. A San Francisco mom recently injected botox into her 8 year-old daughter.
ABC News has reported on this strange event of a mother doing something becuse a “child” wants it in spite of what is best for the child.
Kerry, the girl’s mother, told Good Morning America that it was her daughter Britney who asked to try botox. Botox is a toxin that paralyzes facial mucsles. We recently blogged about botox and its effects on displays of emotion.
“We were getting into the pageants,” Kerry recalled. “I knew she was complaining about her face, having wrinkles, and things like that. When I brought it up to Britney she was all for it.”
Her daughter’s response to all this, “It hurts sometimes,” said Britney. “It makes me nervous. But I get used to it.”
Watch the video below and see if you think Kerry is telling the truth? Pay close attention to the mom’s body language. Do her nonverbal cues contradict her spoken words?
