Oh, Toddlers and Tiaras. Thank you for being a veritable goldmine of information on how not to raise well-adjusted, self confident children. In a new episode, a woman who we can only describe as a step down from Botox Mom explains that she bleaches her children’s teeth every week, no matter how much they protest, even when they’re not about to compete.
In the clip below, you’ll see an Ohio mother named Lori talking out of both sides of her mouth while flooding her kid’s mouths with dental bleach. While she doesn’t want to put her kids Alaska and Braxton to wear false teeth for pageants “because you’re literally altering what God gave them,” she’s perfectly at home making their gums bleed so long as their teeth get whiter in the process.
The worst part of the whole ordeal? While Braxton takes the pain and discomfort of having the whitening agent in his mouth, Alaska can’t bear the taste. And even though she realizes she’s causing her daughter serious discomfort, she won’t let her rinse it out. “Your teeth are so yellow compared to his,” she teases. Which is just plain mean, mom!
Take a look at this sad display, below.
