Please mommy, can I go outside? Toddlers & Tiaras mother shuts daughter indoors to prevent her skin from tanning



pageant mother on Toddlers & Tiaras left viewers aghast last night, as she shut her daughter indoors to prevent her skin from tanning.

Three-year-old Selena Cruz was seen with her face pressed against the window as her brothers played basketball outside.

'I really want to play outside. Like my brothers,' she complained. But her mother said that she must stay indoors so her 'natural, golden skin tone' would not darken.

    However Selena's mother simply explains on the TLC show: 'She has to stay inside, so she follows the proper protocol.'

    Last night's installment featured a pageant contest held in Columbia, South Carolina. last June.

    Selena appeared to be getting a little tired of the constant preening and posing.

    She's such a chubby little cutie pie.

    Her mother is sick.

    Reminds me loosely of this anecdote I read in Our Kind Of People by Lawrence O. Graham. Mom wouldn't let the little girl play outside -- told her it was unladylike. Later, she found out it was because she was black and her father was trying to pass as white. Any teeny bit of sun and she would very easily compromise the family's status.

    Her mother was sick, too.

    I am not sure of the lady above's reasoning, but there is nothing that changes how shameful this act is. Give her some SPF and let the child be a child! What kind of parent suggests that their kid is skating on a thin line of acceptable and not if they stay in the sun?

    I was reading some of the comments in the article I think I found the mother's response lol:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/social/misquoted?action=comments" rel="nofollow - misquoted
    First of all 80% is scripted and secondly the show left out that it was 100 plus degrees outside and the fact that I do let her go out when it cools down. This was June in the south and actually there was a warning about playing . In fact her brothers had only been out for five minutes while they filmed. So if anything during certain months it is the safest thing to keep her in until after 6 when it cools and yes even with sunscreen she has burned leaving blothches and irritation. So there are so many factor in all episodes that are edited out and changed around even instructed to the child to say. Knowing this we will never film again with this show. The entire play gym outside actually belongs to her and gets plenty of use!

    You can't be darker-skinned and have kids with a man with darker skin and then act stupid if the kids come out with (gasp) DARKER SKIN!  She wasn't concerned about skin color when she spread her legs for him, so she needs to stop.  If she was truly that obsessed, she would have procreated with a lighter man.  She's asking like that child is Alicia Keys light, or not going to be viewed as a minority by White people no matter WHAT her skin tone.  That poor little girl.

    Trust me, I know--I was a chubby growing up that could run like the damn wind, but it ain't do a damn thing against all the cheese doodles I was consuming LOL
     
    But still, she needs to be more concerned about the child's weight than her skintone.

    Y'all really want 3 year olds outside in 100+ degree sun/heat?

    My skin is many years tougher and several shades darker than that child's and it has sun burned, red and blistered, through sunscreen. I may not agree with the mother's reasoning, but I agree with the decision.

    I don't know about the Carolinas, but in TX the playgrounds have huge permenant tarps over them to provide shade and protection from the UV rays.  Still you don't have kiddos out when its 100+ mid day.  We don't get into the 100's til mid July to mid Sept.

    This reminds me of this hilarious story of this girl in my class in college giving a heartfelt story about how she used to be light skinneded, but her mom left her out in the sun too long when they were on the beach when she was little one day and now her skin is permanently damaged. Me and my friend gave each other the Confused and then we busted out laughing. She is about the same color as the girl in the OP. 

    She shared a pic of her daughter who is lightskinned and she was like oh she got that color from me and thats when the heart wrenching story of the darkening of her skin occurring took place. lmfao people are sick.

    I'm from the South and my extended family sent all of our yella azzes outside to play and work. No one ever said to put a hat or sunscreen on to keep us light. LOL
     
    "Staying light" was NEVER discussed and I never saw/heard anyone that was light put effort into staying light.
     
    Actually, the only ppl I've personally ever heard they were avoiding the sun to not get dark were darker ppl.

    Some of the older women in my family used to do this when we were kids. Anyone darker than a paper bag couldnt play out in the sun because we would lose our skin tone

    That reminds me, I did not wear sunscreen at all during the epic summer this year, and I'm still darker than usual b/c of it.
