Tanning Mom

A New Jersey mom was arrested after sneaking her daughter into a tanning booth, where she received severe burns all over her body. We’re sure even Snooki wouldn’t approve of this!

Avid tanner Patricia Krentcil was arrested on April 24 for child endangerment after taking her daughter to a tanning salon, receiving burns all over her body!

Luckily, the child’s kindergarten teacher notified authorities after noticing the girl’s burns at school, the Daily Mail reports.

New Jersey state law makes it illegal for children under 14 from using the booths. Anyone under 18 must have permission from their parents.

Employees at the tanning salon in Nutley, New Jersey didn’t realize that Patricia had snuck her daughter into the stand-up tanning booth, according to the The Bergen County Record.

Patricia was released after posting $25,000 bail.

HollyMoms, how outrageous is this mom’s behavior? Does anyone love tanning that much?

Im sure she did put her child in there! So they both can walk around being tan. If the child was standing out side the bed but in the same room she would had not been burned. And I’m really confused the date on the picture say October 18 2012?? Wtf

Not sure if I believe this. Mom said she took her daughter with her while mom tanned and daughter stood close by but did not go in the tanning booth. And the little girl police said had a small sunburn not serverly burned…. People who write these articles need to learn the facts before writting these stories.

This lady obviously has some identity issues and is trying to fit in by tanning. Feeling in her mind, she looks nicer that way,I’m sure she looks in the mirror daily and notices she is wrinkling and aging AN heavier as so many of us do get..Now the insane idea of putting the 5 yr old child inside with her,that child should have been taken from her immediately,she must have been on some sort of drugs or alcohol an caused her judgement to be clearly bizarrely off.No excuses for stupid, belligerent actions ~~~

If this nut of a mom put her chld in the tanning bed, she
should be arrested and the child adopted out. However, if
the salon did it, then they should be charged and put out
of business. Either way, the guilty party should go to
prison for at least five years.
And incidentally, this stupid “adult” looks about 70, so
far. Maybe she should also be locked up for her own good.

IF this lady put her child in a tanning bed, then I would definitely say that is considered abuse….BUT, I don’t think she did. People blow things wayyy out of proportion! I see women bringing their kids to tanning salons all the time and I don’t see a problem with it as long as the kids aren’t tanning. Also, people are so mean!! Obviously, she has went overboard with the tanning and it looks bad, but it seems to me like she has a problem and needs help…NOT hateful insults, especially if shes not even guilty of putting her daughter in a tanning bed!!

Jessica, you are right, except the police are saying she did put her child in a tanning bed, which is a problem. So, unless they’re wrong, then the people are not being mean. Well, they are, but only to a person who deserves it. If the cops are wrong, we can all apologize to her.

People should probably not exaggerate when talking about such a sore subject. The mother did not take the daughter into the booth with her. She just took her to the salon with her. The daughter was not severely burned all over her body. The daughter has red hair and pale skin. It was only a sunburn, nothing severe. I believe this got blown out of proportion and the mom is not guilty. Wanna scold someone? Scold the mothers of Toddlers and Tiaras, helloooo?

I thought she did put her on tanning bed? If not than yes…this is overblown and correct!! How come the moms in toddler n tiaras can spray chemicals all over their daughters repeatedly??? To me its horrible!!
Let this woman’s appearance not be a big issue here!!its obviously a bad pic!

What the hell is wrong with her. Not only does she need parenting help, But she needs help with her makup as well. Does she honestly think she looks good?

That isn’t make-up. It’s a tan, and a bad one too. Maybe she thinks she’s Old Greg.
