THE TERROR OF Toddlers in tiaras By: Sarah Curnow

  • Beauty pageants require high standards.
  • Expenses alone are too abundant for a family to uphold.
  • $200 dollar entry fee.
  • Grand total to participate is $1,000-$2,000.
Children at a young age absorb knowledge like a sponge.
  • Pageants teach children that their natural self alone, is not good enough.
  • Preforming in front of a judge becomes a norm to the child.
  • When something happens that the child does not like, it can cause the child to lash out.

A great alternative to pageants would be sports giving the children a glimpse of real world reality.

Parents can support their children on the side lines of sporting events, teaching the children team work and self-disciple.

All children must leave the nest sometime. The pageant system only degrades the individual participating. Should a child have to go throughout life feeling as if they need to prove their self-worth?
