Little Miss Perfect--7 or 17? : (

Little girls looking like 20 year olds, with perfect, artificial teeth, $1500 dresses, stage makeup, and moves that would embarrass a lady of the night!

I ran across this TV program this past week. This video doesn't show the children crying because they didn't win or the "bratty" children who bossed their mothers around. I'd be afraid to exhibit my child as these children are! I understand the need for stage makeup and lessons in poise, but this is extreme. Some of the poses are definite "come-ons." Children from 5-7 shouldn't even know about those moves, let alone use them. (Shaking my head ) The films we have seen of Jon-Benet, a child dressed in a costume, singing? No...They can't compare to this pageant.

There was a "Little Miss Perfect" marathon on last night. I could only take about 5 minutes....

I tried watching another series on TLC called "Toddlers & Tiaras" for a while, but the parents made me sick.

Little Miss Sunshine eat your heart out....


This is deeply depressing, disturbing and quite quite odd...

I find the people who run these things incredibly weird as well... I mean there's something really quite disturbing about someone who wants to see a 7 year old dressed like a lady of negotiable infection.

Yes it's so so sad. It's interesting that the parents are quite often obese and realtively unattractive - sad that they feel the need to force their dreams (or maybe their insecurities...) on their children.

I think that's exactly it.

God knows what the poor kids are going to be like in 10 years though.

Re: Little Miss Perfect--7 or 17? : (

There was a documentary about a year ago (I think on Channel 4....or maybe Living) about child beauty pageants and it also looked at some of them who are now grown up. One of them was at uni and had totally turned her back on the whole pageant lifestyle, but the other was still entering beauty pageants and it was her whole life (although sadly she didn't seem to win and only got a few 2nd/3rd places). She also "helped" her younger sister prepare for pageants etc. It's just a different world!
