A British mother is giving her eight-year-old daughter regular Botox injections and waxes to improve her chances of becoming famous in later life.
Beautician Kerry Campbell, 34, buys Botox and fillers online and injects them into her daughter Britney's forehead, lips and eye area to give her daughter "the best start in life".
"Research shows that exposure to sexualised imagery is linked to children's experience of increased anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, body image problems, eating disorders, self harm, and sexually transmitted infections. Kids are also becoming sexually active at younger and younger ages."
"The predominant standpoint shared by the media and advertising stakeholders is against censorship and the restriction of what they view as their intrinsic rights and freedoms." "Anecdotal evidence shows that the majority of stakeholders, or parties identified by them, do not feel socially responsible for the negative impact body images are having upon young people."

Also would have bet this being in America from the thread title.... just goes to show that you should never stereotype!
Ms Campbell [the mother of the child], who now lives in San Francisco to be closer to the competitive world of American beauty pageants, says a lot of parents on the pageant circuit give their daughters "extra help".

The article had a picture of the little girl and although she was fine and pretty...like all little girls...if I am honest she certainly didn't look as if she had much going for her (in the superstar sense) other than a pushy mother. I say that not to be unkind but as a realistic observation.
