If anything good can come from being a child subject on TLC's "Toddlers and Tiaras," it's that 20 years from now they'll be able pinpoint the exact moments that scarred them for life. For one little girl, that moment is featured above. After getting "her skin ripped off" during a mom-mandated eyebrow wax in preparation for a pageant, she's forced to endure it all over again. Waxing hurts for adults, but 5-year-old skin is extra sensitive so the pain, coupled with fear, has to be traumatizing. Too bad pageants are about beauty, says her mom. But there's a bigger problem at hand. It's the piping hot wax that's being spread on your child's face and then ripped off. Wait, is that even legal?
