Now i don’t have anything against beauty pageants, i don’t think its wrong to have them. But i do find it wrong and creepy to see young kids as young as 5 years old in beauty pageants. Not just the fact that they are being exposed but the fact that some parents would go to extreme lengths i.e botox, yes believe it or not just so that they win. Also what does this teach kids??? that’s its ok to get plastic surgery, that beauty is the only thing important in life??. Honestly i think that some of these children should be removed from their parents because clearly this parents are ripping them off their childhood.
Did you know it take up to 7 or 8 hours per day just to get the child ready in terms of costume, make-up and practice their skill/routine. The child is always being pressured by the parent to do 100% or nothing. Honestly i think the parent are the ones pushing their own failed dreams towards the child. Their doing it from themselves regardless on how the child feels. They don’t show you what happens next if the child fails to win do they?? Parents would get angry, upset, frustrated towards their child because she did not fulfill their potentials. How do you think the child would feel?? upset, unwanted and a failure. Is this fair on the child of course not.
They say its good because it will make the child less shy and more confidence when they grow up. Somehow i think the child will grow up will to much confidence and have an ego. i don’t think a very young beauty pageant has anything good to show for. I don’t think these kids will grow up right they will grow up thinking that only beauty is the way to get things in life.
Most disturbing thing is some parents would go the extra mile to get plastic surgery on the child???? i mean what the fuck is that all about?? of course its illegal but they somehow find a way to beat the system or they would inject it themselves without supervision or experience.
Already its hard today and kids seems to be growing up much more faster then they should. But this doesn’t make it better it makes it worse.
i just think its wrong for a parent to force their dream on a child and i strongly believe that they should be removed from them due to taking away their natural childhood, this is neglecting the child’s needs to feed your own..
Being a normal child model such as promoting toys and clothing is one thing, but taking it to the next level is another. Just imagine how the child feels everyday to wake up early, practicing, get ready, get make-up done, getting told what to day, say and behave.
Having a parent then teaches you that beauty is the right way forward and that you will make a lot of money from it if successful is giving the child bad advice to take on as they grow older. Parents treats their children as a product they are trying to sell and not as a human being.
Also this will trigger
- hatred and jealousy towards other
- low self-esteem if the lose the contests after being worked so hard to win and being told your not good enough basically
- Self destructive behavior such as bulimia, anorexia.
- Compulsive exersize disorder as they grow older
- Mental disorder
So why would you treat your child like a product????? The reason why i say 18 is because i think that’s the time you can decide whether you want to do it for yourself or not. You have a choice, you have your own mind, you have your own expressiveness. But under 18 i think your more likely to be more influenced but others without knowing what you think is best for yourself.
