Yahoo News! had a article that hit me right in the face, a 44 year old mother who likes to tan, takes her daughter to tan, but this time in the tanning bed with her this time. The young girl went to school and told her friends that she got to tan with her mommy. The little girl went to the nurse and and the nurse noticed that she had burns on her body that represent from a tanning bed. The mother denies putting her in the tanning bed, and that she got the burns from swimming outside with her mother. The mother was charged with felony endangerment with a child and then was released on a 25,000 dollar bond. The father stepped in and made a comment,"It was just a misinterpreted from the teacher, it was 85 degrees outside, she got sunburned. Thats it. Thats all that happened."
My first reaction to this was wow, really a woman put her 5 year old daughter in a tanning bed? That is so wrong in every level. If you watch the video, it looks as if the mother is a little obsessed with her tanning herself, so I could definately see her putting the child in the tanning bed with her, but I could as well see her playing outside and getting burnt, but to me you can really tell a difference in between the tans, and she deserved what she got, I guess next time for everyone's sake don't take your kids in the tanning booth with you! They are still exposed to those nasty UV's!
