New Jersey mom arrested after allegedly taking daughter, 5, into tanning booth
NBCNewYork.com ^ | 5/2/12 | By Ida Siegal

Posted on 05/02/2012 8:37:46 AM PDT by Mr. K

A New Jersey woman was arrested after police said she brought her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth, causing the girl to suffer burns.

But 44-year-old Patricia Krentcil, who was charged with second-degree child endangerment, said her daughter was never exposed to the tanning booth's UV rays and instead got slightly sunburned while playing outside on a warm day.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The girl's father told NBC 4 New York his daughter told classmates at school that she "went tanning with Mommy." He thinks a teacher overheard, inaccurately connected the girl's sunburn to the tanning salon trip and contacted police.

Nanny state intrusion into everything- idiot teacher think they must report everything to the authorities- and for the most part they are right because they will be in trouble if they don't

no one has any common sense any more, including this mother who is obviously buring herself so deeply her brain is affected

where does she work? with all this time for the tanning booth I wonder- are WE paying for her?

I’m wondering if this isn’t one of those pageant moms. Couldn’t she have just sprayed her with than tanning spray?

No mention of how badly burned the kid was. Was she slightly pink, red and peely, or blistered. I've been all three when I was a kid. The last when I was old enough to have known better.

Also, the mother's picture in the article is frightening. She should have stopped tanning about 40 years ago.

Sometimes parents mean it when they threaten to tan their child’s hide.

Or she could take tanning pills and exceed the recommended dosage level resulting in something similar to this!

I remember my mom buying a sun lamp and sitting us all in front of it for ten minutes or so on winter evenings to ensure that we all got enough Vitamin D.

Please tell me that the statute of limitations has run out.

I tended to buy the “misunderstanding” story unitl I saw the video of the Mom. She appears to have disfigured herself through excessive tanning. She appears to have extremely, poor judgment when it comes to tanning, so, while it might have been a misunderstanding, it would not suprise me at akk if she put her 5 year old in a tanning booth.

I hope this woman gets the help she needs, because she appears to have a real problem. I am rather disgusted that tanning salons would continue to serve this woman.

Based on what you stated, it seems almost without doubt that is exactly what she did.

While I agree that there is a “nanny state teacher” problem, I think the teacher did the right thing in reporting this. I presume the teacher has seen the mother and her horribly disfigured face, apparently the result of extreme over-tannning.

I imgaine the teacher feared that the mother was going to disfigure the little girl the way she has disfigured herself.

I am very, very, very light-skinned and have taken great care in avoiding burning by using SPF 1,000,000 AND with the fairly non-wrinkled face AND hands (be sure to use SPF on hands or it will show your age since the face and hands won't match), I am often mistaken for being younger than I am - so I have that working for me.

But, I've always wanted a healthy tan. So, I got the instant tanning stuff from Walgreens.

When my husband (then boyfriend) next saw me, he thought I had hepatitis or something else medically wrong. I looked SO yellow!

So, I'll just live with the inherited Irish skin and be grateful I do not have that woman's terrible looking skin. Very grateful for SPF.

Also, the poor woman recently had to get rid of her dog. It seems that whenever she walked in the house, the dog would get excited, running towards her screaming; “BACON, BACON, BACON, BACON, BAAAACOOOOOONNN!!!!”

I really despise these kimchi’d image side-by-sides. There is no way to compare these two. Lighting, image size, etc., just dam annoying. And so many businesses and people do this to scam the viewer.

It’s from the movie, “Soul Man” made in 1986.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soul_Man_%28film%29

The movie’s protagonist is Mark Watson (Howell), the pampered son from a rich family who is about to attend Harvard Law School along with his best friend Gordon (Gross). However, all of a sudden his father’s neurotic psychiatrist talks his patient into having more fun for himself instead of spending money on his son. Faced with the horrifying prospect of having to pay for law school by himself, Mark decides to take up a scholarship, but the only suitable one is for African Americans only. So he decides to cheat by using tanning pills in a larger dose than prescribed to appear as an African American. Watson then sets out for Harvard, naïvely believing that blacks have no problems at all in American society.

I thought it was a joke too...That is...I know people are worried about the kid, but a relative needs to step in and worry about the mom. She's got serious problems. She's going to tan herself into an early grave before her kid gets out of high school.

Some radio talkers here in LA were saying that most of this gal’s “tan” is out of a bottle rather than from a tanning bed.

Somehow she managed to avoid guido orange and instead is peat bog brown. Maybe she’s using leather dye.
