As a kid I remember putting on nail polish and lip gloss. When I was 15 my mother told me that if I start wearing heave make early I would get wrinkles – that was enough to scare me until 17. Enough about me.I am here to talk about Toddlers and Tiaras.
The first time I heard about the show was on a British documentary documenting about how mothers push their children to dress up and wear make up. Some children enjoy the pampering and make up but others don’t like it and sometimes they throw tantrums to which the parent shout at them – or call them names.I feel for these little children because they have to go through such competitive show. A show that can even make an adult lose the confidence. A show that judges children for their make up, their hair style, their costume and fake smile. A show that triggers in children the idea of perfection is good. A show that hides the innocence of these children under heavy make up and over the top clothing. A show that force children to start from young to become obsessed with beauty.
Some children freak me out with their attire. I wonder what people might think when they see these little angels dressed like this:Some others, although they look like perfect porcelain dolls – thanks to photo shop –
they freak me out because they remind me of Moira Orfei, an Italian circus mogul, who has a porcelain face in adult body – creepy!All I wish for those children is to have parents that can preserve their innocence – even if they are to participate in beauty pageant shows.
