Should children be allowed to enter beauty pagents?

  • Yes. They Should :)

    Yes. I believe that if you want to be in Beauty Pageants, then be in them. Who is to stop you? As a person who actually watches Toddlers and Tiaras it show little girls from ages 4-12 and how they get ready and what they do at pageants. Also, when doing pageants its hard work. You can’t just prance around on stage, there is a lot of preparing and determination to get the crown. Although beauty pageants are expensive, you want your kids happy and if they want to be in pageants you should let them.

    Being in beauty pageants isn’t all that bad. It can give you a career in the future like modeling. Even if you are only 6, if you already know what you want to do in life, why should it matter? After all, your age is only a number. Why are people trying it hold back kids from what they love doing? Is it because they are jealous they didn’t get these opportunities when they were kids, so they take it out on us?

    I get it, that some people think its wrong that 6 and 7 year olds are wearing thick makeup, fake spray tan, and big hair. But, being in beauty pageants gives them a slice of adulthood, and it eventually it will help out in the future with competition. There are also different categories in Beauty Pageants, there isn’t just prance around the stage and look pretty.

    Lots of children compete in Beauty Pageants every year, and to be able to be 5 and say “I won the Overall Grand Supreme Title” is pretty huge for them. Also being in competitions and not winning shows and helps children to be good sports. Also in my research about this topic, people were saying that “They aren’t being modest, and look to old for their age” or “Children beauty pageants are incredibly disturbing on a number of levels.”

  • Yes, but only if they choose to.

    I have heard of so many cases when children's parents force them to do the pageants. Yet I have about children that love the pageants and simply adore them! They love being all dressed up and feeling older! Then one of my friends cousin is in beauty pageants but she hates it! She is amazing at it but of course she is a tomboy!

  • Confidence Booster for the kids

    If they enter beauty pageants, kids get a confidence boost if they win. Even from participating they get an adrenaline rush from standing up in front of a crowd and practicing their public speaking. They help children become more confidence and more sure of themselves. Some people may argue that they make children depressed, but it can have the opposite effect

  • Yes they should.

    Kids should be allowed to enter beauty pageants. If a kid want to enter it then they should have the option to be able to participate in beauty pageants. Parents should not force their kids to enter them, but ask them if they want to enter a beauty pageant or not.

  • Beauty pageants are fine, as long as regulated.

    I think that children should be allowed to join beauty pageants as long as they are moderated and regulated well. I think that the nature of the pageant is a little superficial but there is nothing dangerous there as long as the parents know how to handle the kid there and do not abuse the situation.

  • We sould be allowed

    Beauty pageants are fun! Us Girls get to have their dreams of being a princess come true. It's not something that everyone can do, so why try and take that dream away from them? Most people don't get their dreams turned into a reality, but the ones who do, people shouldn't try and take that away from them.

  • Children should be allowed to enter pageants only if they want to.

    As someone who is horrified by the child pageant shows that are currently being shown on television, I think that a child should still be allowed to compete, but only if they truly want to. Too often we see parents forcing their kids to enter such things, and that's wrong.

  • Why it's good for kids to be in Beauty Pageants.

    Childern should be able to enter into Beauty Pageants because, it can help shy kids and build up their confidence and no longer being shy ever. Also, at least the kids are not on their electronics and some kids like mine, like compition, plus, it will make kids happy and excited to do it.

  • It will express how you feel about wearing your style.

    You can make whats on you mind and show it off to people who don't know about it. It doesn't matter if you win, it matters that you are showing people you don't know you r style and taste of what you made. For example, Pinkie Pie related dress (or separate-shirt and skirt like she wears in Equestria girls). Or a ninja-go outfit/costume. Anything you want to create is in your hands or hooves right now. (Good Luck to the people who are participating! =D)

  • Yes they should...

    Children should be able to enter beauty pageants because they should know how to be confident in front of a crowd. Imagine if the girl wanted to become miss United States one day, she should be able to have practice, the girl or boy should be able to follow their dreams and be what they want to be. Even though people think little girls should care about how they look like and all but when you do a beauty pageant the girl/boy is only caring about how they look to the judges not anybody else

  • Destroy kids confidence

    If the child doesn't win beauty pageants they may believe that they are not good looking and could give them mental issues such as depression as well as that it could make them insecure which would give them problems in the long run where they will have anxiety which could lead them to a negative life.

  • They are to young+ doing make up is not good for their skin!

    These are the reason WHY they shouldn't be allowed to enter beauty pagents:
    1. They are too young!
    2. Doing make up is not good for their skin!
    3. Their parents won't be happy after the beauty pagents!

  • Do you really think it is a good idea?

    A little bit of competition is great for children, but not if the competition is who is the prettiest? Imagine the 20 little girls that didn't win! They will feel so upset with themselves, and will spend all their time worrying about how they look. Losing will destroy their self-esteem. Children are supposed to be able to be children, not being caked in expensive makeup and fake tan

  • I completely disagree

    I say that kids under 13 should not be able to enter beauty paents. You would not want your kid prancing on stage to please someone else for her looks. I would want kids to feel pleased for who they are and not having to put on a lot of makeup to make others pleased. Did you know entering a single beauty paget can cost from 3,00 to 5,00 on average. That money could be used for college or having a successful career. One of the last reasons is it lowers their self confidence. If they don't win they would start wonder like, am I pretty enough or should I just quit. There is a difference between healthy competition ad being put into a pressured situation. Most the time the parents force their child to be in pagents. As you can see beauty pageants can ruin a kids life.

  • No no noooo

    Young girls shouldn't be put through the stress and frustration of beauty pageants. Also, they put a bad image in young kids heads to think it's what's on the outside the matters and not what's on the inside. This makes kids believe that they need to be skinny, wear tons of makeup and wear the best outfits. To me a kid shouldn't be put through that, they should just be a kid.

  • No they shouldn't

    The reason why is because many little girls will began to care more about there looks than anything else. Many girls will began to have anorexia at such a young age. Because they would want to be skinny. If they loose they will feel as if they didn't accomplish anything.

  • Parents should not let their children participate in beauty pageants.

    It teaches the many invaluable life lessons. For example they will think that only external looks matter and not what's on the inside. Also parents but way too much money into it, when they could be using that money for important thing in the child's life, like college or a house

  • To much pressure!

    There is too much pressure already on girls to look perfect. If they are in a pageant, that puts even more pressure on them. If they lose, it will lower their self esteem a lot. They will put more pressure on themselves to look even more perfect when they are already beautiful.

  • Why should 0-11 month old babies be dressed like Barbie dolls?

    I understand that most parents want to dress their daughters in cute outfits but there is a big gap between dressing them up in a cute dress or spray-tanning them and putting on lots of makeup. This encourages the children to be spoilt and only worry about if they are pretty and skinny enough to make them look beautiful. It's horrible!
