Worst Parenting ever~ Caffeine addiction of 2-year-old Toddler

texas mum gives caffeine to 2-year-old daughter
**pictures from Mail online

Well i read about a very insane from a mum from newspaper yesterday and i think it was the worst parenting style that i had ever heard. Guess wat? this mummy gave her two years old daughter~Alexa Hensley a high sugar content of drinks as her breakfast daily, consisting of soda, Sweet Tea and Pixie Stix , she called it mixture 'Tinker Tea' . WTF is she doing?? 

OMG, this mother is really insane enuf, so y she is doing this? this poor little toddler even started to have a large cup of coffee with powdered milk since she was nine months old 0.o I remembered how my mom stopped me from coffee when i was young ( of coz, i kena canned if i really do so) becoz everyone knows that caffeine is bad for health!

I was addicted to coffee when im in sem 2, but after i study about Nutrition and i decided to stop coffee slowly and change into green tea. obviously tea is better than coffee lar~ chinese culture for thousands of years adi. Now if i drink a full cup of coffee, i will have palpitation, sweating, nausea, headache, and sometimes dizziness. so i control myself from drinking. If i really need it i will onli put half of the packet into a big cup so it is diluted. But i still love Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino.

And i cant really understand how a little child can bear with the high content of caffeine in her drink? ok im not a professional doctor yet so i will voice out my point from a view as a medical students. This mummy said that in order to boost lilttle Alexa's energy so she can afford the loads of rehearsal and training for a so call stupid pageant, or we called it simple: beauty contest. walao e, do u ever concern to her health or not? if u want her to join this kind of contest so much, y don u go for a plastic surgery too and get urself into the contest as well?

Ok let talk about the high sugar diet for this children first. First, as the article in the mail online mention, this diet just act like a temporary glucose boosting, which cause a spike of insulin production and drop ur sugar level drastically after hours later, this harm ur body a lot! besides, this action expose this little toddler to Diabetes Mellitus, probably type 2 juvenile diabetes. Oh shit, do u know how serious the consequences is? if the child fail to produce enuf insulin and have a high insulin resistance in her body, she need insulin injection for the rest of her whole life and it is extremely painful! can u imagine if ur body got lots of injection marks and u cant wear a nice bikini ( well western loves bikini), feel inferior than others?

Next, the caffeine, the dose that the mom gives is equal to the adults, and FYI, children needs onli a little dose of caffeine to get the side effects, same like alcohol. They will have increase blood pressure, increase heart rate, palpitation, upset stomach, difficulty in sleeping ( insomnia), and predispose them to dental caries and osteoporosis in future. So y? look back to the coffee bag, u dont drink coffee without sugar ain't u? it is so bitter until i also have problem to swallow it. what they do to make ppl drink it? well they add sugars. how many sugar? i dunno, it depends on ur favorite. but let's look on the sugar content level of other beverage:

well you might say that maybe the mom did not add sugars into the coffee, or little Alexa is actually having sugar free coffee. Look carefully in the articles, she drinks SODA and a high sugar beverage! 

And why it is related to osteoporosis? FYI, our body got a lot of minerals interaction to build up our body and bones, such as calcium and phosphates. caffeine may interfere the ability of our body to absorb calcium, and decrease the bone mass density, which leads to osteoporosis in future. ya she is still very young and what she scare for since osteoporosis onset is around 40+? ya don forget she needs to grow up with a strong bony structure, if there is no calcium, where comes the strong bones? drop from the sky? 

Guess wat the mom replied 
I know I’m a great parent and most children do not have the opportunities that my child has'
walao e, i dowan this kind of opportunity lo, although my childhood was nothing to show off for, so what, i had a great one! at least im happy with what i had that time

Little Alexa is having her "tinker tea", consisting of soda ( mountain dew), sweet tea and pixie stix. I really feel pity to this little girl, she deserved to have a better childhood than such a nonsense life!

Little Alexa was so tired after the sugar rush. she need to practice for dance all the day just to impress the audience on the stage, for just that few minutes and she need to sacrifice her health. Worth for it? totally disagree for it 

Alexa always won the pageants, and make her mom proud. but is tis really a good thing? 

If u really want to proud of ur children, y don u trained them to be a smart person instead of a pretty? the crowns that u got during the childhood is nothing if u can't contribute anything to the society in future. personally im against this kind of beauty contest, yes im ugly so wat,  I got my life and i live my way, I love my style. Nothing is important than health, and this is the main message that i wanna say in my blog today. For those girls who are on diet just becoz ur bf says u r fat, dump them la plz, they don have the right to decide ur life, to judge how u look like. 

Ok i'm famous for being a big eater and my bf called me "alligator" X..X obviously this portion of food does not feed my appetite, if im not wrong i went for snowflakes after the dinner @.@
