Strictly Baby Disco.

Postby Sandra » 12 Apr 2012, 06:43

I watched a programme last night called Strictly Baby Disco. It was disturbing to watch. Young kids living out their parents dreams of winning disco dance contests. I can't believe the parenting. One child collapsed with exhaustion, another had fake tan on her eczema, which was clearly making it worse and one was competing with a kidney infection!! I couldn't believe my eyes the way they were being treated and for a tv show!! I think someone should be looking into it as child abuse!!

Did anyone else see it?

No, and I'm glad I didn't, because things like that make me seethe. The same goes for beauty pageants for youngsters, and Muay Thai boxing, where children as young as 5 compete against each other. There was a documentary about this back in 2008. Twins Miah and Kian Flanagan, both 5, were said to've been "seasoned fighters".

This's the type of thing that happens, and although dancing and sports are generally good exercise, these extremes want stopping.

clearly child abuse, so why isn't there a huge noise about it? umm... because someone's getting rich off them, it's just a new form of child slavery.
