Why do some parents feel the need to put children as young as four through beauty pageants?


I have a four year old daughter, and love watching her grow up and learn new things. But having seen toddlers and tiaras, I would like to know why parents seem to want to put their children through these competitions, and make them look so much older by plastering their faces in make up? It's just something I'm struggling to understand!

    I agree with you on the plastic surgery bit. That is going way to far because that will alter something in the child at an age when she does not possess the required capacity to give her consent.
