"Human Barbie" Sarah Burge Gifts Boob Job to 7-year-old Daughter

In the category of "you can't make this stuff up," a recent story has hit the news regarding a mom who gifted a boob job - TO HER 7-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER!

Move over Octomom and Botox mom, this lady is vying for the next "Mother of the Year" award.  As reported by such outlets as NY Daily News and the Daily Mail, British mom Sarah Burge recently bought her young daughter a gift certificate for a breast augmentation.  Mind you, the $9850 voucher is only good AFTER she turns 16 (UK's legal age for surgery).  Still, the gift is shock-worthy.  Even more shocking is that her daughter, Poppy, actually asked for this as her birthday present.  Perhaps she was slightly influenced by her party planner/self-proclaimed plastic surgery addict mom?

"Poppy begged me for a boob job, so I gave her the voucher so she can have it after she's 16, when it's legal, " said the Ms. Burge, who is also an "erotic novelist."

"I can't wait to be like Mummy with big boobs," says young Poppy.  "They're pretty."

Her mom goes on to say, "'If she develops naturally big boobs, she can have something else done with it."  Well, at least we know her coupon is transferable.                         

The coupon was part of an almost $20,000 "exotic pamper party" Ms. Burge, a.k.a. "The Human Barbie," had organized for her daughter's birthday.  Really, we are not making this up.  She made headlines before as she gave pole dancing lessons to her daughter at age six.  

Ms. Burge, who has spent over $800,000 on plastic surgery for herself, completely defends her choices as being a loving and supportive mother. 

"Some people think it's controversial and I get angry when strangers say I'm a bad mother because I don't think there's any harm in giving her this gift," she said. 

"Poppy is a normal kid who is good at sports and loves playing outside. Girls don't want Snow White and Cinderella any more.  They want to be WAGs [wives and girlfriends of soccer players] and famous like [UK singer] Cheryl Cole and Lady Gaga. I'm just supporting her and making her dreams come true."

What do you think?  We have covered the subject of young breast augmentation before, but this young?  According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 47.4% of last year's implants for girls 18 and under were "Purely cosmetic bilateral breast augmentation."   Could this be trending even younger soon?

Parents, please weigh in.

More power to her! I'm glad my mother encouraged me to start my relationships early (at 7 while in France). I would have lost 10 years of happiness out of my life. After all girls can have babies a 5 yo and getting younger evolution-wise every year now but the pig suit, prudes that want us to slave for the corporations want us miserable in school for ten years and ignore the urges, trained to slave at the machine. Don't get me wrong... some kids aren't developed early but why deprive those who are for this filthy corporate machine and the pigs who run it?

shocker yes...because this is her "little girl" she has not reached puberty...so true, she may not need a boob job. Second, it's Surgery!! how wreckless is the mom to encourage her child to get voluntary surgery. I think cosmetic surgery is great for repairing what needs repair. But it is not like getting a new dress, it does have risks!! and boob jobs they say have to be renewed every 10 yrs!! or so..
I think the mom should give her this money towards college !:)? duhhhhh lol
She is encouraging her daughter to be a barbie to get a rich husband :p gross ....let her have a career, interests, and attract a man who will have a genuine love for her as a person first !

She'll be okay once she gets her boobs fixed. Then she can lead a normal life...But the mom needs a nose job.

You are right, why would a 7 year old know about that? All you should be doing at 7 is being a kid.

Wow, that's pretty sad...but what if she won't need a boob job? LOL

She said it's good for any procedure should she decide she doesn't want a boob job. So you know, basically "Hey honey, in case your boobs are perfect you can fix whatever else about you isn't right."

Definitely the opposite of what a mother should encourage. My daughter always frets about having small boobs and I constantly try to let her know that she looks great and is fine.

It makes for entertaining reading.

I'm pretty sure that this particular woman just does ridiculous things because every time she does, the UK tabloids pay her big bucks for the story. She is in the Star all the time, and has been on Channel 4 docs about plastic surgery several times.

She should hook up with Heidi and Spencer.

Poor little girl. She´ll never be happy, if her own mother tells her that she´s not perfect as she is, or will be. One of our most important jobs as mothers is to tell our children that we love them as they are, just for being them, and they don´t need to be different to be loved. Poor child.

so much for teaching little girls that beauty and value comes from whats inside your heart not your bra.

Well said.

All that comes to my mind on this is WOW.  That is fine if the mother chooses to be the human barbie, but I feel really bad for her daughter that will grow up thinking she is not naturally pretty enough.  You can already tell by her picture that she doesn't live a normal child's life.  Who gives their child pole dancing lessons at age 6?  She is teaching her daughter to concentrate only on her outside appearance and landing a soccer player... not on having her own dreams.

Sheesh.  Whatever happened to kids parties themed with Hello Kitty or Dora the Explorer?  I'm still in shock that she gave her pole lessons.  I'm no mother, but couldn't she have waited to share these "interests" of hers when the girl was say, 18?  Just sayin....

As Liz Lemon says, "BLERG!"  

I have no qualms with Ms. Burge doing all those things to herself -- if she's happy and confident, power to her. But by giving that to her daughter (and her subsequent defense), she's basically saying "Undoubtedly there will be something about you that you can fix, even if you're boobs grow huge...as they should be."

Well in 10 years maybe it will "Human Barbie and Teen Skipper."
