Child Beauty Pageants While beauty pageants started in the 1920’s, children’s beauty pageants began in the 1960’s. This is when the predicament all began. Equally important is the definition of child abuse. It is defined as the exploitation of a child. Children in beauty pageants are exploited at a very over powering rate. Since there is so much exploitation, it should be considered child abuse. Due to parental involvement, children participate in pageants that damage them physically, mentally, and emotionally, prohibiting them from appropriately socializing in society.
Most people are familiar with the popular TV show Toddlers and Tiaras.

Not only that but as they grow older and continue doing pageants are going to grow old as a very high maintenance human being. Which isn’t always good for an individual. Sometimes switching back and forth like that may also have results of stress or even depression. Making sure that your child is living and enjoying their life as a child is a number one goal to have. One thing that you don’t want to do is take a childhood away.
Another reason why many individuals across the world believe that pageants aren’t good for kids is that they believe that people are submitting them into these pageants is so someone else can get a win out of it.
