Mother Spends Huge Amts to Keep Her Kids Beautiful

leave a comment »

Yesterday on the Tyra Show, a mom proclaimed that she spends up to $80,000 dollars on her children annually to help maintain her their (a boy and girl) beauty. She feels that after a “hard week” of school and tests, they deserve a treat, so to speak. The money goes towards manicures, pedicures, massages and facials.

There is a huge difference between making sure that your children are well groomed and clean and making sure your kids are sparkling, shiny, smooth and soft. When I was younger, soap and water sufficed. Today’s generation is  too concerned with external beauty. Parents with this mentality not only puts pressure on their children to look “perfect” at all times, but it also enforces dangerous habits: spending thousands of dollars on beauty regimens is not considered responsible.
