Little Girls and beauty pageants (Should/Should not be allowed to participate.
Showcasing their talents is good like "Little Miss Talent". Imitating the other major beauty pageants - wearing make up, I think is not good.
I've never been a fan. Why start them so young competing for beauty or the cutest or most talented? Make-up on a preschooler is ridiculous.
I was never in favor of them and always thought they were exploitative. But I’ve since changed my mind. My daughter has several friends who have participated and have younger siblings who also participate in pageants and it seems to be, overall, a positive experience for them. The kids seem to enjoy it and it boosts their self-confidence. The pageants I’ve been to have been no worse than some of the dance/music recitals, gymnastics competitions, or horse shows my own girls have participated in. Seems to me the positive or negative experience has everything to do with the type of pageant (there are different types some of which allow no makeup at all) and the parents involved.
