Girls all around the world participate in beauty pageants. I personally believe that beauty pageants aren't healthy for young girls, or any girls for that matter to participate in. A beauty pageant is basically just a competition to determine who's prettier and who's more talented.

There are some parents who give their little girls Botox to remove the natural wrinkles from their 6 year old's face. Botox is painful, and it's unhealthy, not to mention it's expensive. Parents ruin their girls' childhoods just for $1,000 and a trophy or tiara.

When girls loose beauty pageants, they normally are upset. Their self confidence automatically goes down a few notches, because they think "I'm not pretty enough" or "I'm not talented enough". Let me just say that a 6 year old shouldn't even have to worry about that stuff. In fact, no one should. Everyone should be told that their beautiful because everyone is. No child should ever have to be forced to go through all that for a tiara and some cash.

Now just to clarify, I'm not saying that no one should participate in beauty pageants. This is just a debate for fun, and if someone really enjoys doing them, then they can. All I'm saying is if a child doesn't want to do it, the parent or guardian shouldn't make them do it. I also am just saying that I personally believe that it isn't healthy to be in beauty pageants, but if that's what you want to do, go do it. I could care less. I'm just a person who wants to share their opinion with the world.

Now something I will be debating on and bring back is how are beauty pageants different than sports excluding different skills needed?

"Botox is painful, and it's unhealthy, not to mention it's expensive. Parents ruin their girls' childhoods just for $1,000 and a trophy or tiara."-http.mrp

I feel really bad for those people I truly do. Sadly is sports this happens in a form called steroids.

When you lose your are normally upset. The self confidence will go down. The person to blame is not the idea of beauty pageants the idea to blame are the kid and parent. Some parents are responsible and caring and teach them to be good sport. But like in sports some parents don't care. Rather have the bragging rights and money instead. Truth is we people are judged by the world. In sports you judged by strength. In life you just in smarts, strength, and beauty.

Truly you are right with your conclusion. Two different idea I have though about your conclusion. Parents should push just a little not to much and if the kids don't like it they don't like. Beauty pageants likes sports are good for you.

I think beauty pageants are bad for kids because it is teaching them to try to be better than everyone else and its teaching the kids to judge. This world does not need kids to be taught to judge kids at a young age. We should be taught growing up that everyone is the same not to be judged on who has better hair, better looks, or better walks. There is no reason a kid should be put through beauty pageants. NO parent i mean No parent should do this. When putting the kid through a beauty pageant also put a lot of make up on the kid and it is ruing the kids pors at a young age so the would be known to get more acne before they have reached 20!

Parents who inject their children with botox are disgusting. It is simply disgusting.
