That’s right. You read the title correctly. Senate Bill 507, introduced by Senator Grothman (R-West Bend) on February 23, 2012, would require the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize that non-marital parenthood is a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect. Single parents make up a third of all Wisconsin parents. Once again, I am livid! What the hell is going on in our country? We seem to be going backwards in time as people’s rights start disappearing.
The recent news of the sex scandal at Penn State, centered around former Assistant Coach, Jerry Sandusky, performing sexual acts (abuse) with boys as young as seven years old is completely overwhelming and devastating to me. I am in complete shock that so many people knew about these heinous acts, yet swept them under the rug purely to protect the reputation of the football program as well as guarding against the financial impact this would cause. This entire cover-up has haunted me since I first saw this on the news last night. These poor children… and for Victim #2 to actually have been witnessed by then graduate assistant, Mike McQueary, being raped in the shower by Sandusky, only for no one to come to this child’s rescue completely tears me apart.

• Joe Paterno, one of the biggest names in college football, will never coach another game
• Penn State president Graham Spanier also forced out by Board of Trustees
• Allegations of a cover-up as two school administrators charged with failing to report their findings about the sexual assaults
• One boy said he was assaulted at least 20 times at Jerry Sandusky’s home and the boy’s high school in 2005 or 2006
• Pennsylvania’s top police officer says Paterno should have done more to stop his one-time heir-apparent

It never ceases to amaze me what people will do… giving Botox to an 8 year old girl, and waxing her legs. All in prep for her beauty pageants. Is this child abuse? This mother is living out her fallen dreams through her daughter, and taking away her childhood.
The girl tells about the pain… and claims she has wrinkles! What parent would purposely put their own child in agony as this woman has done?
The psychological scars will forever remain with this girl. She may very well grow up never believing her outer beauty is good enough, thus damaging her inner beauty. Forever seeking alterations to her body.
Video on this story:
Can the child beauty pageant officials should ban this woman from entering this girl? This may be the only way of stopping her from torturing her own child. Statistics show half of girls ages 8 to 10 as being unhappy with their size, 40 percent of fourth graders admitting to previously being on a diet, and more than half of girls ages 9 to 15 having exercised to lose weight.
Being forced into a competition, whether the child likes it or not, hampers the confidence of the child. Moreover, she has to always look pretty, wear make-up and behave in an adult manner. Naturally, these children suffer from mental problems like low self-esteem, depression and eating disorders. Most of these girls are tall but have a low body mass index or BMI. Malnutrition sets in their body sometimes at the young age of 14 or 16.
And now… injecting botox and waxing legs…. What have we come to? How much longer until this mother has plastic surgery done on her child?
Parents, and society in general, need to focus more on the inner beauty. It is more than skin deep.
