Did you hear about the mom that has injected her 8 year old with Botox to get rid of wrinkles?

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/mom-year-daughter-botox-young-young/story?id=13580804

I am a "well into my 40's" mom of a 6 year old, I have wrinkles and have reservations about getting Botox for myself. For now, me and my kiddo will happily wear our laugh lines, squint lines and other lines with pride!

What do you think?

This is terrible. I'm concerned about the mother's reality testing.

In addition, what kind of message is she sending to this 8 year old girl?

I am 51 and plan to age gracefully. I do color my hair because I have a 13 year old son and don't want to be mistaken for his grandmother!

WOW......who lets their 8 year old getting botox injections. Well this one particular deranged mother. Thats ridiculous. I would be scared for my daughters health. Anything could have went wrong. But I guess people do what they want to do with their kids. And whats wrinkles could this litttle 8 year old girl possibl have...I mean really, she;s just a baby, she isnt that old to have a wrinkes at all. I really think they need to put a gae limit on these botox injections, if I was the doctor, I dont think I would have done the procedure, I just would have felt some tyoe of way about that. This is crazy.
