Botox for an 8 year old

Is this child abuse? I think so. I also think injecting a child with an illegal prescription is a crime.
Why isn't this mom in jail?

  • I think it is crazy to give a kid botox--- why would they need that?? I think the mom has some mental problems and image problems.....

  • I heard about it on the news this morning. The daughter was in beauty pageants and the mom started seeing tiny lines on her face, so she started the botox. I think it's very sad and yes she should be put in jail. Some parents out there doing their best and still getting kids taken away from them. Then there are parents like this that don't have the children at heart.

  • Botox has no appropriate cosmetic use in children.

  • Mom needs a mental evaluation and learn to get a real job. Jails offer a place to pick up a new trade.

  • Yes. This is definitely abuse!

  • There has to at least be something criminal about giving a child prescription drugs that aren't prescribed to her.
