In 1997 images of a beautiful six-year old beauty queen flashed across the TV screens in homes across the US and around the world Who had murdered JonBenet Ramsey No one knows The case brought all eyes to the attention of child beauty pageants Videos and pictures of JonBenet were literally on every news-program and in every newspaper and magazine The world of beauty pageants had been exposed The world of child beauty pageants that to an outsider- seemed to tread a fine line verging into pornographyBranson The sights of these little girls imitating adult beauty queens in pictures are shocking Pageant children are seen as having been deprived of their childhood by being taught sexually provocative behavior while performing on stage Children as young as one month old were parading or being paraded around with pounds of make-up on and over-extravagant dresses decked out in sequins and pearls They sing songs such as America the Beautiful dance and strut what stuff they do have or throw a baton in the air a couple of times But rarely do these pageants have anything to do with talent to win children have to be physically attractive What kind of a message is this sending to the kids This sends the wrong kind of message that a cute smile and nice hair are everythingBriggs A-4 Is it right that parents are allowing their children to do this posing as 18-year olds rather than the eight year olds they really are Children should be allowed to live their own lives as carefree kids rather than trying to keep up with the pressures of impressing others and their own parents Most pageants occur on the weekends and when a girl is constantly competing she may spend her whole weekend on the road in a car or mini-van Hopping from one town to the next hoping to claim a small prize The weekends are a time for kids to relax
