Princezs by proxy. Maybe the mothers of these girls should seek help in healing their disturbing underlying mental health issues instead of exploiting their own daughters. Its sickening when they (mothers) attempt to defend/excuse exposing their children to great harm in order to cover up for what their real issues are.
Instead of mom loving her and showing her her inner beauty, value of her heart, or her talents and abilities. Parents are pawning her off as a sellable commodity. To shake her body and be the best money maker in the market...She learns yhat she has no inner value. And that she hasnt beauty either. Cause its all fake .
Lovely. Telling your precious daughter thats all shes good for.
Kids should not get their face implanted until they are up and out of the house so yeah and that is very painful for the child to have to go through that type of process they should go through that when they get older because that is just offense for the child because that indicates that their face is not good enough
Yes they are because of that. M m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m
The worl is becoming more and more fixed on appearance. Before the 1900s beauty pageants weren't nearly as common as they are nowadays. And now this disturbing trend has spread to children as well! Beside the fact that children change as they grow, making it impossible to determine who is going to be "beautiful" later on, taking part in competions focused on your outward appearance can ruin a girl's self-esteem forever.
Excessive make up, excessive dressing and over stressing a child is not good for them. Their parents are exploiting their children to get money for them. Almost a 'nice' form of child labour! It hurts children and the only benefits are for the parents and to spoil their children. It definitely does.
The other girls that don't do pageants or even think they are so much prettier than the other gals in the pageant! Even though it might help their self esteem they still act like they are better than everyone else. If they are called beauty pageants then why do they wear all the make up and i thought they were supposed to look at them without all this make up on. People don't see really how beautiful the girls are because all that make up and looking like a barbie which is bad
You merely have to look at Toddlers and Tiaras to see how they exploit children. All the parents are so intent on making their child absolutely perfect. Most of the time they don't have any money as they spend it all on pageants to get more money for pageants. A lot of the women compete with their babies (2 months old!), and these babies are not models or princesses or beauty pageant queens, they are babies. They have been alive for two months, and they do not have a personality yet. They are being exploited by their parents, when they simply cannot do anything about it, these girls are then raised to believe they have to win everything and they are forced to do their pageants by their mothers. They don't know much they are children, they don't know whether they are being exploited or not so they don't fight back. Because of this is makes it more exploitative.
Girls think they are so much better than the other girls that don't do pageants or even think they are so much prettier than the other gals in the pageant!

They have been doing pageants since the 1900's and it has always lowered girls self-esteem. They make girls compete on how good people look and they judge on the looks and I think that people think the prettiest girl always wins but the most unattractive girls loose in which makes me just hate the way people look at the children competing.
Pageants cause little children to become brats. And it's not okay for little kids to think that it is good to be fake. These pageants encourage that. Don't enter your child in a pageants unless you want these devastating effects and want your child to be a huge, fake brat. Thank you for your time.
Let them have their little fantasy fun time now. Life can be pretty bland and dull as a adult. A bit of an escape from a humdrum work a day life. As long as they are protected from sexual predators, let the little ones have their day in the spotlight.
Most pageants are meant to be fun, clean, and friendly. Many children start pageants early in life and are shown how to dress and act by their parents and other pageant parents. Parents are raising their children to be provocative and competitive, this has nothing to do with the pageant or the pageant system. Parents need to learn how to raise their children to be decent human beings, and if parents could do this than pageants would be less frowned upon.
Beauty pagents alone do not exploit children. They can be a fun way to compete with each other. However the parents of the children can often become too competitive and involved and this puts the children at risk. The pageants alone do not cause harm, people cause the harm in pageants.
I do not think that beauty pageants exploit children. If anything is exploiting children, it would be the parents. Beauty pageants do provide children with an opportunity to gain self esteem, and chances to explore different activities. However, like with any other activity, take football for example, a parent may push the child more than they should. This is why I don't think beauty pageants don't exploit children, but their parents may.
No, beauty pageants do not exploit children, because for the most part, the children like being in them. Beauty pageants teach children how to dress, and how to present themselves. They can spent time working on their talents. It teaches them how to win and lose with grace. There are good things in beauty pageants, so it cannot be said that they exploit children.
