Tyra Show Clip of Parents Who Spend Thousands on Spa Treatments For Kids

This Lady Has Spent More Than 80 Grand on Spa Treatments . . . For Her Small Children

Yesterday on Tyra, Tyra Banks interviewed a bunch of women who take their kids to the spa all the time. This is not like taking your junior-high-aged daughter for a manicure; we're talking elementary school kids of both genders getting things like massages and facials every week. If I were wealthy, I might go to the spa a lot more often, but if you're spending tens of thousands of dollars "beautifying" your grade schoolers, then maybe you need to take a step back and think about how you're using that money. Do you think this is the kind of thing that's permissible if you have endless funds? Watch the mom explain herself here:

Okay I work at a place that's a salon/spa/birthday place for girls and we treat the girls like princesses and they love it. Yet it's not as focused on beauty as in making the girl's feel special, it's an experience. The idea of not letting a elementary school girl out of the house with a chipped nail is too intense. That is unhealthy for the child. Going to the spa though and letting them feel like an adult or just have a special day once and a while is great. The girl's just glow and love it. But you can't be so demanding of a child. It should be a fun experience, not a task or something that you HAVE to do.

Those poor kids! The last thing I want to teach my daughter is that "Beauty is everything." Yes, outside appearance matters whether we like it or not, and yes, playing with makeup and getting pampered is fun. But those things are just one part of life, a life that should be filled with playing and mud and friends and books and fun.If I had 80k to spend on my daughter right now, I'd invest it and grow it so I could retire and her college expenses could be covered. I might pull a few bucks out for a new shade of nail polish (blue, her favorite) and play manicures...or maybe I'd use it to buy a pack of water balloons.

I agree pharm-chick, my girl and I do our nails together, and we have so much fun! Those poor kids! I love the look on the boy's face when she says 'they can't live without it.'

umm... i think a $10 bottle of nailpolish and DIY is also a great way to get some mom and daughter time! lol... even if i had 80k to spend like that.. id probably buy clothes, jewelry or bags or something invest able!

the kids are probably going to have lots of disappointments for the real world when mommy isn't there for them anymore. This is absolutely an atrocious way to teach little kids life lessons.

skigurl - your mouth would literally be hanging open about halfway through. The little girl is either going to be vain and intolerable like her mother, or she's going to have some serious issues. Or both.

I feel bad for the kids. Great things she's teaching them. :( I doubt there's that much time focusing on the education part of things. Also it's never good to depend mostly or completely on your physical appearance to have good self esteem.

LOL the mother and the daughter are sitting the exact same way, too....she's obviously very well trained

i don't think it's about the money...if she has it, she can spend it whichever way she wants...that's not my concernbut my concern is little children being taught that regular spa treatments are the only way to live...they should be having fun and playing...this mom is f-ed up...i can see SOMETIMES treating your little girl to a manicure if she wants one, but it can't consume their lives...weekly is too much *i can't listen with sound at work so i'm sure there's some prime comments like the chipped polish comment that i would be able to rip into as well, but i'm almost glad i can't hear this insanity!

Gross. Her kids looked pretty uncomfortable, in my opinion.

Oh my God. "Beauty is everything"? "My daughter can't leave the house if her polish is chipped"? Oh honey no. This lady needs to stop with the spa treatments and start saving for therapy, immediately.
