That is because of the supporters of beauty pageants, who think it is positive towards young girls, but they don’t realize pageants exposes young girls to predators, and makes them turn to adults too early. Beauty Pageants should not be allowed because they poorly influence young girls, they are inappropriate, and it creates bad parenting.
Child beauty pageants, on the other hand, do not have such fatal influence on them. It is certainly quite natural that many parents wish for their children to grow up to be “wholesome,” but children also have their own will, no matter how young they are. If they want to participate in beauty pageants, parents should not restrict them because of their unilateral desire or the social ethics. This is the very objectification of their children, which happens by overprotection. Thus, the protest that child beauty pageants should be banned does not have any logical reasons.
Imagine stepping onto a stage for the first time in front of hundreds of people while they critique your every move. Young women get a thrill out of the bejeweled dresses, costumes, fake nails, tans, hair, and lashes. Some individuals feel beauty pageants are a disgrace to young women by degrading them to society, creating body image issues and strains on mother-daughter relationships. On the other hand, some feel as if beauty pageants are worth every penny in the world because they promote confidence and valuable charity opportunities. While every pageant, natural or glitz, comes with its ups and downs, they are beneficial for young women through aiding them in bettering themselves throughout life.
Everyone knows that children love to dress up, but do fake tans, pounds of makeup, fake eyelashes, skimpy outfits and fake teeth take dress up too far? While poofy ball gowns and princess-like makeup comes to mind, the harsh reality of beauty pageants is making young children look and act like adults. In fact, Collective shouts wants to highlight dangers of beauty pageants sexualizing young children (Freymark). Little girls should be building puzzles or playing outside or having tea parties, not strutting down catwalks with orange makeup and revealing clothing, parading like show ponies (Meridith). Susanna Freymark adds “teaching little girls to preen and strut, to look sexy for judges, to emphasize sexual behaviors is totally inappropriate for
Leuce laughed a little, catching herself in time not to encourage the girl's impertinent impersonation of Demeter. If only her mother had also encouraged her to be careful, taught her how to restrain her self, and to always listen to her guardian; then Leuce would have had an easier time looking after the child, and keeping her safe. Persephone wasn't especially hard to look after though, which was the whole reason why Leuce had grown to relish her. She was quite obedient and well mannered enough for a child, but she's a Goddess and Gods don't have it in them to take orders from nymphs; its innate in them, in Demeter, in Hades, even Persephone
About 250,000 children participate in child beauty pageants every year, and the number is only increasing.

Barbie’s slender figure remains idolized; however, it has evolved from a plastic doll to a self-starving model that is photo-shopped on the pages of glossy magazines. You spend hours in front of a mirror adjusting and perfecting your robotic look while demanding your parents to spend an endless amount of money on cosmetics and harmful skin products to acquire a temporary version of beauty. Consider companies such as Maybelline, which have throughout the ages created problematic and infantilizing campaigns and products for women. More specifically consider the “Baby Lips” product as well as the company slogan, “maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline,” that reiterates the male notions of beauty to which women are subjected.
In addition, children participating in these contests are largely forced by their mothers to participate and to carry out transformations with the aim of winning.

Babies, brought to the stage by their mothers, are commonplace“, said Schultz and Murphy (2017).

In proper perspective, Barbie is just a toy for young children, nothing more, mothing less. In my view, she is a good doll in my heart
