It's the subject of a new reality TV show and the super competitive moms of Sherwood were featured in the ABC report. Rock Candy leads off:
For those blessedly unaware of the concept of "Cheer Perfection," produced by the good folks who brought us "Toddlers & Tiaras," the special
exploitshighlights the aspiring young cheerleaders of Cheer Time Revolution and their not at all overbearing and awful mothers. The show "takes us inside a world where moms are unapologetic about living vicariously," Chang says, shortly before cheer-leading mom Ann Robinson totally admits that the moms do indeed live vicariously through their daughters. Robinson then relates a sad tale about how her daughter Torin played softball recently and everybody got a trophy.
"Well that's not fun to me," Robinson said. "I want to know that my kid is No. 1."
