One mother on TLC’s reality show Toddlers and Tiaras, about beauty pageant toddlers, won’t let her three-year-old play outside for fear that the little girl’s skin will get darker in the sun.

In a recent episode, 3-year-old Selena presses her face against the window as she watches the other kids play basketball outside. “I really want to play outside,” she says.

The mother says she “she has to stay inside” because she wants the little girl to maintain her “natural golden skin tone.”
