A child beauty pageant is a contest where very young children wear makeup, fake teeth, false eyelashes, lipstick, elaborate hairstyles, fake breasts, padded buttocks, and clothing so provocative that most adults wouldn’t be seen in them. Spray tanning and waxing are also common.

These children perform in a high-stress environment where appearance – not talent or skill – has the highest valued. They are being paraded in a world of adult sensibilities with no thought of what the long-term repercussions will bet?

In normal situations, parents are the defenders but in these pageants, parents are the fuel and motivation to participate.
