Well, at least there is some common sense somewhere in the world.
I can't believe that it took authorities so long to protect that child though! Kerry Campbell has been giving interviews and has been "out" for at least a few months about giving her 8yr old daughter botox injections.
I have mixed feelings about this whole thing though. Yes, the child will be better off, but the child must be hurting right now.
Firstly, you have a mother injecting toxins into her childs face. One slip or something wrong with the batch and the child would face permanent facial disfigurment (in form of paralysis).
Then, you have an obviously ignorant mother (to the dangers of botox), but now you have a child that does not understand why she was taken away from her mother. The child will probably also probably face a lifetime of body dysmorphic issues because of the mothers actions (ie. She was not beautiful enough as she was).
At the end of the day though, I am saddened by how much publicity this woman has received over the last few months. I am saddened because for every 9 people that saw the atrocity in her actions, there was probably one parent who thought it was a brilliant idea and why not try it.:(
I would like to know though ... Why is it a CPS worthy event to remove a child from care for receiving injections for aesthetic reasons, yet many parents are allowed to remove their sons foreskins for purely aesthetic reasons ("because it looks nicer" "to look like daddy") and no-one bats an eyelid!
