Debate over mums reason for letting daughter wear makeup to school
This mum got slammed on Twitter over comments she made referring to why she continued to let her daughter wear makeup to school.
Mum Jenna Ward came under intense scrutiny by the end of This Morning today.
Twitter users took to expressing their concern and opinions over her 14-year-old daughter wearing makeup to school.
Mum Jenna and headteacher Christine Cunniffee sat side-by-side during the show as it was explained that Jenna’s daughter had been suspended from school as makeup is prohibited yet she continued to wear it.
As the headteacher of her daughter’s school said, “I don’t think make-up goes with school uniform. There are so many pressures for children at the moment that they don’t need another.”
Clearly that didn’t go down well with mum who said that she continued to let her daughter wear makeup, despite the school’s warnings of possible suspension, due to the fact that she had acne.
It was understood that the young girl wore mascara, eyeshadow, concealer and occasionally individual lashes. The presenter of the ITV show, Ruth Langsford then put forward the suggestion that surely if acne was the issue concealer alone would suffice.
My god people are prudes. Ban teachers from wearing makeup as well then. It's only fair right? #thismorning

This debate on #ThisMorning is infuriating. I wore full make up all through school and got straight A's! Schools need to focus on teaching.

Not wearing make-up at school seems fantastic if you're naturally good looking & confident, but what about if you aren't? #ThisMorning

Why shouldn't girl be aloud to wear makeup? Confidence is given to individuals in different way. A bit of lippy does no harm #ThisMorning

From here mum Jenna explained that the makeup helps her daughter with body confidence, which some viewers felt was perhaps moving into a different kind of issue, as she questioned why wearing makeup wasn’t the choice of the child.
Well viewers took to Twitter and pretty much went wild.
Too much choice given to kids and not enough discipline, that's why we now have a bunch of workshy youths! Get them down mills! #thismorning

This mother is setting a very bad example for her daughter! Follow the rules!! Make up is not needed at school #ThisMorning

Clearly not teaching her daughter to follow rules she's gonna have issues when she gets a job and is told what to do #ThisMorning

Rules are there for a reason - children in school have no discipline! Kids shouldn't wear make-up #ThisMorning
