Child Beauty Pageants


Whose idea was it to start a competition with kids plastering all shades of makeup on their faces like their grandmas trying to hide their wrinkles? Isn't it disturbing to see these kids who hardly can spell know about beauty poses and the names of designer clothing? It doesn't end there. These kids are graded on the perfection of their acts which should be the handiwork of people that are more matured. What scares me is their look. They have this shiny skin, perfect teeth, fake eyelashes, lipstick plump lips, and dang that makes Barbie look younger. How can you still call them children when they look and act like mature adults? They are not supposed to act as adults because they are obviously little in age and size!
Who do we hold responsible? Is it the creators of the competition or the parents who enter their children into these competitions? I really don't like hearing the parents that say the kids wanted to do it badly. When did little kids start making work decisions? What do the kids really know about the competition? I believe some parents just exploit their kids for cash and fame. Kids should be allowed to grow and should do age appropriate activities. Child pageant parents should think of the physical and physicological risks they put their children through.
