    There are multiple conflicting stories here. The mom says the daughter was beside the bed, but the salon says the daughter was never there. The mother then proceeds to shed her leathery exoskeleton due to the advanced growth of melanoma, and the salon then sells it to Bear Grylls as a survival suit that he then uses to store his urine for drinking purposes.

    What teacher hears a little girl say, "mom took me tanning" and immediately calls the police? I think we`ve finally eliminated critical thought from our public schools, from the teachers on down.

    @AvatarJohn: If I were a teacher that overheard a kid say that who had bad sunburn, I`d call the police too, since the minimum legal age is 14 in NJ.

    Any teacher who hears a sunburned child say her mum took her tanning would be seriously negligent if they did not file a report. Child protection is part of the job, do you think that is wrong?

    @AvatarJohn

    The claim is that the kid showed up with a severe sunburn that the kid claims was a result of mom taking her to the tanning booth. There may or may not be a situation of parental neglect but it`s not for the teacher to decide - they are required to report anything questionable that they observe and leave it to authorities to decide whether or not a crime occurred.

    Also, painting all teachers with the same brush is not a fair assessment. The quality of teachers varies not only from state to state, but district to district.

    "I`m not going to bring her to a 90 degree tanning bed, that`s not normal" I really wish I could show the world my reaction face. What a dumb bitch ha. @Sethdog, it hides slight imperfections in the skin such as cellulite and makes you look more fit. I don`t tan though, I spray tan.

    It doesn`t really hide imperfections I reckon instead just makes you look like an oompa loompa.

    One of my friends in third grade (in ohio) was tanning with her mom in tanning salons. her hair was also bleached and she wore huge gold hoop earrings. We fell out of touch until high school, and by that time her skin was like leather. Everyone called her "the Ethiopian"...like that was funny or something. I just found it sad. And sick.

    Also, that woman`s skin...holy poo...

    So, it`s illegal to serve liquor to a drunk, but it`s okay to let this burnt leather sack of cancer into a tanning booth?

    Preservice teacher here (Aka someone currently studying education) in Aus.

    We are obligated by law in Australia (And America I also believe where this occurred) to report any and all cases of suspected child neglect or abuse to the relevant authorities. If someone`s child shown up badly sunburnt and claimed their mother took them into a tanning booth we would be, by law, required to report it regardless of whether or not we thought the mothers story was accurate.

    It`s the same as if a kid says their parent hit them (or shown up to school with unexplained bruising or shown other signs of possible mistreatment). They could just be lying, but we never take that risk. By law and policy, we must report. I firmly believe in that law too. It`s not work risking a childs welfare because a teacher thinks it is ok/suspects them of lying.

    In other news, here you can smoke your way to cancer and drink yourself to death (if you buy all your booze beforehand and not while intoxicated) but apparently theres going to be a ban on tanning beds.

    Huh. I am extremely pale (like, whitest kid you know white) but that seems odd. In moderation it`s not that bad compared to some other vices. Also vit D deficiencies/underexposure complications, rickets etc kill more people annually then overexposure to UV. It`s also used to treat SA to ban it. Restrict it to over 18s/adults for sure, just like booze and cigs, and theres always going to be the idiots like this woman taking it too far (just like people with booze and cigs) but hey, were not the body police.

    Whoops, should be "It`s also used to treat SAD/seasonal affective disorder, seems odd to ban it"
