They are spending hours after hours practicing their routines, interviews and perfecting there unrecognizable faces meanwhile spending thousands of pounds on outfits,hair and spray tans. The Barbie dolls from my childhood have became real life figures as these young girls have been over indulging themselves in makeup and dressing scandalously to try impress an audience. Futhermore,the age of the children participating in pageants ranges from 0 - 18 years old. That goes to show that the very young children participating are not in it for themselves but have been forced into it by their parents or guardians. Most of these children are too young to even understand what is going on.
These young children are subjected to wearing laying of fake accessories, bodily enhancements, and strict dieting. Their parents are adamant about their young child winning Ultimate Grand Supreme, which is the highest title to obtain. Furthermore, when the goal is to win all of the monetary value, and bragging rights that come with this raved about prize. TLC is a network full of controversial shows that depict the lives of parents living through their children. Shows such as: Toddlers and Tiaras, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and a variety of other shows are the epicenter of controversy.
I have been watching clips of the “Toddlers And Tiaras” and just about every mother says, “Yes I am very competitive I want to do good at everything I do!” Why is this when they aren’t the ones competing. Jordan’s (a child on Toddlers and Tiara’s) mother said “Yes I’m very competitive, when my daughters on stage she represents a product of me.” Or the one parent who said they see pageants as a great investment. How disgusting. Not only are these little girls exploited, but also it’s usually for the parents benefit. Ther... ... middle of paper ... ...urbing, wearing revealing outfits that resemble adult costumes makes the situation worse.
Child beauty pageants have changed so much since the 1960’s. Children beauty pageants used to be about the children and having fun. Now, it seems like most children are being forced in these pageants by their parents, looking unnoticeable from all the heavy makeup they wear, fake hair, teeth and nails they use. Children being abuse, sexualize, having self-esteem problems etc in these pageants. Many people have questioned this sport and wonder if it should be ban?
Anorexia nervosa and bulimia affect numerous girls every year; some admit they get them from beauty pageants. Pageants only judge your outside appearances and never anything that is meaningful to life. No kid should ever have to feel self-conscious about their bodies. The lesson beauty pageants teach kids is that you have to be near perfect to be beautiful in our society. As the children are not all to blame, they contribute to some of the factors.
Many times, parental issues lead to children pulling away or rebelling, but Cheryl never did. She was so grateful to have the family that she did have and appreciated all that her mother did for her and her siblings. I believe that is a key reason as to why her mother’s death was so hard on her. Of course, anyone who loses a parent would be devastated, but losing the only parent you have, the only one who has ever done anything for you, that makes things ten times worse. Cheryl’s mother was the glue, the mold that held what family she had left together.
Marilyn’s real mother, Gladys Pearl Monroe, was a very happy person. As Gladys grew older she went through tons of husbands to the point that when she found out she was pregnant she didn't know who the father was. She tried to tell... ... middle of paper ... ...d all kinds of other harsh words obviously rarely knows anything about her past. It all makes sense, she never got attention as a young child she was always hopping back and forth between people. Theres a lot to learn about how Norma Jeane came to be the famous Marilyn Monroe.
It portrays the main character in the poem, who never had a chance to live life according to her will, because she spent her whole life in trying to please others and to be accepted. She didn't want society to judge her on any base. She never got a chance to lead a happy life. This poem, is written in free style using four stanzas; the author used very descriptive tone to help us in understanding the context. The first stanza, starts with the line: “the girlchild was born as usual”, this sentence gives me the impression that this child was born normal and nothing was wrong with her.
There once was a girl who lived a happy life until the age of thirteen. Everything changed that day because that 's when her mother started emotionally, mentally, and verbally abusing her. The girl wanted nothing more than to be loved by her mother but that was not the case. Her mother thought that she was nothing than a worthless piece of garbage on the street. Every day the girl 's mom had something negative to say to the girl whether it was that she was stupid, worthless, or even someone who nobody wanted around.
Many parents just assume that everyone around them interested in promoting their child’s beauty pageant career is someone they can trust. Countless girls are being left unattended with coaches, agents, and make-up artists and most of these people will never undergo a background check until it is too late. Child face this danger in sports also but in sports, they are not one on one with the potential predator.
