Mum Teaches Seven-Year-Old Daughter To Pole Dance

A mum has revealed she is teaching her seven-year-old daughter to pole dance.

Sounds a bit odd - until you realise this is the same woman who injected her 15-year-old daughter with Botox.

Sarah Burge, 50, otherwise known as the ''Human Barbie'' after spending £500,000 on cosmetic surgery, says she is helping her younger daughter Poppy keep fit.

Right. Not just publicity-seeking, then...

Sarah, who is apparently a "trained aesthetic practitioner" from St Neots, Cambridgeshire, runs a high-class swingers club and organises international sex parties.

She told the St Neots News & Crier: ''I am keeping Poppy healthy and happy, and if in the future she wants to be a real pole dancer, who am I to stop her?

''It's a great bonding experience for us to play on the pole together.

''We spend hours trying out poses and positions and dancing to our favourite music. Poppy wants to be like pop star Miley Cyrus, who also dances on a pole.

''There is no harm in a child having dreams. I'd rather her be healthy and ambitious than sitting in front of the TV all day getting fat like most children.''

However, the mum has been criticised by children's campaigners. Kidscape director Claude Knights told the News & Crier: ''It is worrying because pole dancing is associated with sexual activities.

''Pole dancing has connotations far beyond what a seven-year-old understands."

But Sarah told the News & Crier: ''I could not care less what people think about me.

''People think of the pole as a sexual object, but does this mean kids are not allowed to slide down a pole on a climbing frame?

''There are bad people out there who will have dirty thoughts about what Poppy is doing, but I will always protect her from men like that."

She also says her seven-year-old daughter wants a boob job when she is old enough "and what my daughters want, they get".

Hmmm. What do you think of this woman's form of parenting?
