Ok i know that this has probally been debated before but i am just watching a tv show with child beauty queens, am i am horrified with my self for watching, but can't seem to turn it off (it seems such a violation of the little girls inocence, if i am watching so can any deviant)...seriously spray tans for a 6 yr old. I know there are child actors and models but this seems like a vastly different kettle of fish -in movies and ads etc the kids are portrayed as children- (yes there are exception but on the whole)....My little girls love dress up dream of being a ballet dancer or princess but where it seems that the line between mums desires and the kids desires is a very blurred on...does anyone have girls who go in these type contests? If so are these tv shows showing the extremes or is this level of attention the norm? I am not judging and don't want this to be a slanging match about it i am actually very curious, i live in a small rural australian town and this is so foriegn to me as anything more than a easter bonnet parade is unheard of out here..
