Is It Child Abuse?

From Toddlers and Tiaras. Thanks to one of you for emailing me this. I don’t know that it’s child abuse. It’s hard for me to say that a child should turn “custody of the state” over something like this.

On the other hand, is it stomach churning level gross? Absolutely. I don’t get the pagent thing and I possibly never will. We had a pagent coach call in about this and for the record she was as horrified as we were.

According to her, pagents are all about giving girls confidence and self-esteem. I would post the segment here, but in all this morning’s technical delay’s the podcast was lost.

We also had a CPS official that said based on the video/audio evidence she would have enough to further investigate the case. Crazy. The debate on this rages on via our Facebook page Click the link to weigh in.
