Toddler's and Tiara's stoops to a new low



If you’ve ever seen TLC’s beauty pageant reality show, Toddlers and Tiara’s then you know it is ripe with controversy. However, viewers were astounded as they watched one mother take her behavior to an all new low. It's clear her parenting skills need work.

June Holler of McIntyre, Georgia is mother of six year old Alana a self described “beauty queen”. In the latest episode, viewers watched as she gave her daughter Alana, “go-go juice”. The special juice is intended to get little Alana “amped up” prior to the competitions.

Hit with the allegations of “doping” her daughter, June had this to say. “A lot of pageant mom’s and people know what the ‘special juice’ is, everybody has their different concoctions. Special juice is to help energize her.”

June has faced numerous criticisms over the practice but continues to defend her actions. “A lot of mom’s say, ‘Oh well you’re doping up your child’. Well, hey, no I’m not. I’m not hurting her. We have tried the pixie sticks that are known as ‘pageant crack’, we went through 15 bags at one pageant and they just don’t do anything for her.”

In the show, Alana can be seen gulping down a bottle of the “special juice” then proudly exclaimed, “I am ready to go!” In an interview on the show Alana stated that, “I like to win money. A dollar makes me holler, honey boo boo.”

In parting June exclaims that, “She just drinks it for pageants, to give her that extra “oomph”. So whatever works for you child, use it.” Seriously, is this woman for real? Where is child protective services when you need them? These parents are utterly crazy. The behaviors they are teaching their children are atrocious.

Children need to be taught to work hard for what they want. They need to learn to make positive decisions in their lives. Using “pixie sticks and special juice” to “energize themselves” is only one step before using “speed” to make it through high school and college finals. Where does this behavior take the child from there?

What do you think? Is the mother’s behavior acceptable? Or is she in fact damaging her daughter?
