Abby Lee Miller, the controversial coach of Lifetime’s Dance Moms, may appear to be tough with the young girls in her dance troupe but that’s because she thinks that’s exactly what kids today need.
The Pittsburgh-based reality star told RumorFix exclusively “I just think in today’s society, kids are soft and people … are enabling them. They’re letting them be mediocre.”
And she’s blaming bad parenting kids for making them that way. Not just in dance practice, but in everyday life.
She explained to us “I just think that we live in a society where parents want to buy their kids into the most advanced class or the best school or the best this or the best that instead of letting the kid actually work for it. In my class, that doesn’t happen.”
She’s tough on her young students because she believes that’s what they need to succeed. And viewers of Dance Moms know that Abby will settle for nothing but perfection.
“No amount of money, no amount of gifts, no amounts of complaining or whining will make that leg any straighter. That kid ultimately has to put the work in.”
