Being a parent isn't always smooth-sailing. You have an important responsibility to ensure you give your child all the tools they need to become well-adjusted, happy and healthy adults. But there are cases in which a parent is believed to be doing all the wrong things and actually putting their child in danger.
One mom, Jenna Eastland, caused quite the stir when she appeared on This Morning with her seven-year-old daughter, Layla Thompson.
While on the show, Jenna opened up about her desire to ensure her daughter becomes a star. Apparently, one of the ways she chose to do that was to have Layla come on the show wearing revealing clothes and displaying a face full of makeup.
Jenna admitted that she had spent quite a lot of money toward getting acting and dancing lessons for the little girl as the mom believed these were the first steps for her child to get to the top.
Apart from Jenna's disturbing words about her goals for her daughter, some also felt the little girl's dressing was taking things overboard. The mom dressed her daughter in a skimpy one-shoulder crop top which put her midriff on display. Layla also had on fake eyelashes and way too much makeup for a girl her age.
Social media users were quite appalled by the whole thing and some even pointed out that Layla looked very uncomfortable on the show.
Letting your child dress like that everyday are you serious she's 7 shouldn't be wearing a crop top like cmon #ThisMorning— Cerys Emily ♡ (@Cerys_Emily_x) August 2, 2017
The mom defended her choices saying that Layla was the one who really wanted to be famous and there was nothing wrong with the way the girl dressed.
Your 7 year olds dream or your dream for her to become a reality star? Disgusting, she's a child not a doll #ThisMorning— shanice (sha-niece) (@hishanice) August 2, 2017
Sure, we may not always agree with everyone's parenting choices, but the vast majority of opinions, in this case, is that Jenna's desperation for fame might end up putting her little daughter in harm's way.
Do you agree?
