Chloe Sims tells her daughter a dangerous lie that bruises from cosmetic surgery “are from falling over,” says Ulrika Jonsson

WHILE opening up about the cosmetic procedures she’s had, Towie star Chloe Sims said her 16-year-old daughter Madison “doesn’t need to be aware of it.”

She even admits it to fib about the bruises on her face and tells her girl that they are “about to drop”.

I’m not here to criticize, just to observe.

But her comments struck a troubling chord that resides deep in my parental soul, and it is that of dishonesty towards our children.

The caveat with chloe is that she wrote about her daughter who was diagnosed with ADHD and “a bit of autism,” so it would be wrong of me to burden her like that.

She knows her daughter and her needs best. We cannot escape this.

But as a mother of four, I’ve always believed very strongly in being honest with my kids—too honest at times.

I have a daughter who will yell at me and storm off if I share too much.

But that’s because the problem is obviously hers and definitely not mine.

However, when I think about Chloe’s words, I think that in so many situations in life, it’s important to acknowledge that happy endings don’t always exist.

And when we turn to broader aspects of life—whether it’s moral issues, what’s in the news, or the huge ramifications of cosmetic surgery—I’m deeply troubled by parents who think nothing of not telling their children the truth.

Granted, we all have the right to raise our children the way we see fit.

Aside from being a strict, liberal parent, honesty is high on my list of priorities.

That means I’m willing to let my kids know that the world is pretty horrible — people can be ghastly and that I’m not perfect as a mother.
I don’t hide my weaknesses – I explain them.

I want my children to live in reality, not in a constructed one. For my children, there is greater value in knowing that there are dangerous things and mistakes can be made – but that there are lessons to be learned from them.

Everything I discuss with them is age-appropriate.

It’s confusing to hear Chloe say that her daughter doesn’t need to know what cosmetic procedures her mother had.

At 16 you learned a lot about life. And she has a mother in public.

With a cosmetically enhanced face and altered body like Chloe’s, there would have been a day when Mom would have left the house with small breasts and come home with bigger ones.

There would have been a time when her lips and butt were of average size, but then they suddenly became very puffed up.

Shielding your child from conversations about things that are physically life changing is harmful to both the parent and the child.

It creates a harmful level of distrust, distrust and doubt.

Sharing information with your child, allowing yourself to be vulnerable, being honest and risking being challenged can only serve to strengthen the relationship.

By not talking about changes to her body, Chloe acts like all women are blessed with near-perfect bodies. And we all know that’s not true.

People can be ugly

I suppose she’s hoping her daughter will think that “magic happens” and that this is something every woman has done.

Being truthful doesn’t normalize these cosmetic procedures.

But it would mean explaining why she had it done.

In contrast, Danniella Westbrook — who has had a series of cosmetic procedures to repair damage from her drug addiction and beautify herself — has decided to tell her daughter Jodie about it.

She, in turn, does not want to go down the same path.

These two daughters are part of a generation bombarded by images of perfection and change.

Denying someone the opportunity to have an honest conversation about it is just plain wrong. It’s dangerous, stupid and naive.

And the question arises: What are you afraid of?

You should want your child to challenge you.

In this way they build resilience, better understand debates and develop empathy.

Chloe says she worries about what her daughter might find on social media and that she tells her she’s beautiful every day.

That’s all well and good. But social media is the stuff of life these days — especially when you’re 16 — so shielding them from what’s real and what’s fake is no protection. It’s rejection.

It means rejecting the principles of parenting, which require us to be open, honest, and trustworthy.

AGEING IS A PAIN

THE man who once had the world’s fastest feet – and insured them for £25million – claims he would struggle to run for a bus today.

The 63-year-old, who appears to have torn muscles, ruptured tendons, a broken bone in one foot and needs his shoulder replaced, says in the dance business you have to make friends with pain.

The doctors warned him, but he never listened.

Well, Michael, it’s not just in the dance business. We’re just getting old.

And with age comes stiffness and muscle wasting.

I endured arthritis in my hips from a very young age so me and the pain has come a long way.

I used to be a gymnast, I used to run and ride. Every counselor I met asked me to stop and try something gentler.

Now I enjoy Pilates which is tough but less harmful.

I’ve tried yoga a few times, but all that mindfulness has been a struggle. I couldn’t attend to the meditation piece.

I lay there making grocery lists, stressing out with chores and appointments, and worrying about problems that hadn’t yet arisen.

To that end, I’ve come to the conclusion that if you have time for mindfulness, you probably aren’t the person who needs it.

BLAME FOR THE POVERTY TRAP IN 2022

I KNOW how lucky I am. I don’t have to worry about how to pay for my food.

And while I will frown on my energy bill, it will be manageable.

People have endured a drop in the cost of living that has now become a crisis. And it’s more than a little annoying.

I can’t imagine making a choice about whether my children go hungry or cold at home.

I think of the parents who make daily sacrifices not to eat so their offspring can.

My early childhood was characterized by a lack of food and I had holes in the soles of my shoes. That was in the early seventies.

How come many people are much worse off in 2022? I understand that life today is expensive and more complicated.

There is more commercial pressure and people are weighed down by expectations and unattainable goals.

There are people who are trapped in poverty and have been led to believe that they can work their way out of it.

Most of the time they can’t because the system isn’t good for them.

For the millions of beneficiaries who fear they won’t make it to the end of the week, the guilt must be overwhelming.

Perhaps the only reason more ears are pricked up now is that the middle class is starting to feel the pinch.

I don’t know what the solution is, but I am ashamed that people across the country are starving and cannot be adequately clothed.

how did we get here

More importantly, how do we narrow the gap between the super-rich and the extremely poor?

We all have a responsibility to do something before the gap widens.

ASH IS A LESSON FOR ALL OF US

I love Ash Barty.

I have the greatest admiration for her athletic ability, but even more for her humility.

She always seemed very “real”.

She openly took a break from tennis a few years ago due to mental health issues and now, at the height of her success, at the age of 25, admits “she’s fed up”. plans to retire “chasing other dreams”.

Athletes are a special breed.

You possess absolute dedication, focus, and a narcissism that has always felt uncomfortable in someone like me, who has spent most of his life taking care of other people’s needs.

But the admirable traits that bring success to these people are also those that make them unique and selfish.

So I love the fact that Ash has a vision to see beyond a life of tennis.

To a life where she might take a backseat and not be the center of everyone’s attention.

I have a good feeling this pocket rocket will find more happiness off the court than ever before.
