A beauty pageant or beauty contest is a competition that has traditionally focused on judging and ranking the physical attributes of the contestants, although some contests have evolved to also incorporate personality, intelligence, talent, and answers to judges’ questions as judged criteria. The pageant industry commonly uses three specific courtesy titles – Miss, Ms and Mrs – to clearly identify the difference between pageant divisions. Similar events for men or boys are usually called by other names and are more likely to be bodybuilding contests.
I’m sure many have heard the horrific sad stories of many young girl pageants that have been murdered or even stories of the life of a young girl who is within the pageant world. And this brings up so much controversy, what are your thoughts of mainly mothers placing their young daughters in beauty pageants ? Some people opinion that mothers who place their young daughters into such pageants are selfish mothers who are living their once upon a dreams unto their daughters who at young ages don’t even know what a pageant is so it wouldn’t be a choice that the child themselves asked to be placed in. That mothers who place their young children in such are mothers who looking for easy ways to gain money exploiting their young daughters childlike beauties to better themselves not invest in their child’s future such as college education or financial adulthood freedom.
Some people might beg to differ and say that the mothers making the final decision of their young daughters and placing them in such events are doing nothing wrong and are taking care their child with the funds , publicity gained ,etc so their child can become a model some day or to teach independency and so on. And by using the funds won isn’t a deceitful thing or using your child as a way to make money.
We have seen the famously young pageant contestant Miss Honey Boo-boo who was heartbrokenly denied as the most beautiful amount her peers and how that little baby girl cried. Was so sad. ,any might say her parents used Boo-boo’s heartbreaking success and fame for a fast Come up to be famously known with the movie stars and other public figures. What are your thoughts ?
Another thing to call out is the is the behavior of these mothers during contests and preparations to these events. Some might say they themselves act of a young immature age. As to where their daughters are embarrassed, some of these little young girls aren’t even allowed to speak to another contestor and is that even proper teachings to young children ? Does that prevent the child from being social , and being shy , or is mentally trained to dislike those who compete. ?
