Imagine living in a world where life revolves around spray tans, botox, fake eyelashes, and young girls walk around in inappropriate outfits. Most girls are pressured to be perfect in the society of beauty pageants. Many of the children’s parents are making their children grow up too fast. These parents pressuring their children can lead to bad communication skills, as well as bad relationships. Children are focusing on their beauty and not their education, or relationships.
