Ok. So I have been watching the show dance moms. The teacher is SO hard on the kids that I can't believe the parents allow it. In this episode Abby told one if the little girls "do you even have a brain in your head? I don't think so!" what's your opinion on this? They subject their children to this for what? My daughter dances and her teacher is great. If her teacher was like Abby we would switch studios or find a new hobby! Winning competitions is not worth scarring your daughter for life! Really!

I agree! Im watching that episode right now. I can't believe that they let someone talk to their daughters that way. I understand they want to be famous and stuff and Abby can help accomplish that but it really doesn't seem worth it.

I stopped watching that show because I couldn't stand the way Abby talks to the kids. If my DD's dance teacher was like that she would have quit a long time ago.

Unfortunately, my hubby works for the photography studio that does her dance pictures and said she is about ten times worse off camera. To her it is all about winning and she doesn't care who's feelings get hurt. I know i would never subject my dd to treatment like this.

She sickens me, but I can't stop watching!

My Husband can't get over that the Moms actually pay to have their Daughters treated like that. He caught some of it while I was watching last night.

My high school dance instructor was like that. At a public school. She called us fat, stupid, and lazy all the time. All she cared about was winning competitions. We had practice so much it was hard to do any other ECs, but I had already been in theater for 2 years before I joined. Then we were told we had to quit that too! It felt like I was in an abusive relationship with someone who was cutting me off from everything else. So I quit dance. I cringe when I see this show because people PAY to have their daughters treated this way.
