Mom Gives Botox and Leg Waxing to 8-Year-Old Pageant Daughter

California mom Kerry Campbell has been giving her 8-year-old daughter, Britney, Botox injections in her cheeks to reduce the wrinkles that Britney believes are there.

The child most likely picked up her severe body image issues from a childhood of competing in beauty pageants in which, her mother reports, Botox injections are commonplace.

Campbell has also reported waxing Britney’s legs, which “was… um… super super hard,” Britney told Good Morning America. When asked why she wanted to have the hair on her legs waxed, she replied that she “just [doesn’t] think it’s ladylike to have hair on your legs.”

“It looks way better,” Britney said, after asked how her face looks after Botox injections.

From the Daily Mail:

Experts said the child is now at risk of long-lasting psychological problems because of the beauty treatments.

‘We were getting into the pageants. 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,’ she told Good Morning America.

‘She had watched me do it before. So when we first did it she was fine with it.’
