Moms are always getting criticized for something -- being too overbearing, not present enough, overindulgent, the list goes on. We usually try not to scrutinize, but lately there's been a string of alarming mommy behavior that we can't help but judge.
First, there was Tanning Mom, the woman with the crispy complexion who forced her 6-year-old daughter to go with her to the tanning salon. Now, there's Boob Job Mom, who's pressuring her 14-year-old daughter to get breast implants.
Her name is Chantall Marshall of Nottinghamshire, England, the busty matron of a family that prides themselves on their curves. For the females of the Marshall clan, the rite of passage to womanhood is not getting braces or a boyfriend -- it's getting a boob job. That is, except for the youngest, 14-year-old Britney, who is being your usual rebellious teenager, says her mother. She's refusing to get breast implants and instead wants to "focus on her schoolwork." That crazy girl.
"Britney is going through a funny phase at the moment and saying she doesn't want to get her boobs done," said Marshall. "I really love the fake look of my girls and I know that Britney will go that way when she's a bit older."
Between Marshall and her four eldest daughters, they've had 13 boob jobs with breast sizes ranging from 32 DD and 34HH -- that's more than $61,000 worth of silicone total.
But as the "brainy" one of the family, Britney says she's just not interested in going under the knife. "Maybe I'll decide to get [breast implants] too and start saving in a few years. But for now I want to focus on my schoolwork."
What do you think? Is Britney's mom yet another example of bad parenting?
