The world of beauty pageants has gained a lot of attention in recent years. What was once seen as a fun hobby for young girls to take part in has been exposed for its hidden, darker side.

The television program “Toddlers & Tiaras” has really put the spotlight on the entire pageant industry. Since the airing of the show, it seems like more parents are lining their kids up to participate in pageants. With thousand dollar cash prizes, it’s no wonder many parents think kids pageants are a quick way to make an easy buck.
But when their children are forced to do harmful things to their bodies, it’s difficult for the rest of the world to turn a blind eye. Pageant contestants are exposed to harmful tanning beds, they’re forced to wear high heels before they even hit puberty, and some of them are subjected to Botox injections. When the pageant contestant becomes the breadwinner of her family, it can also cause skewed dynamics and a toxic family life.
