I think these beauty pageants are horrific. It’s the mothers living through their little girls and I think they have awful values. Little girl’s having to get fake teeth called flippers, if their front teeth are missing, is just crazy. Little kids with missing front teeth are cute. I don’t understand why they have to shave their legs, get spray tans, get their hair dyed and curled. It’s all so crazy. They are making cute normal kids look like creepy wax dolls. The worst part is that they try to make 5 year olds look like 20 year olds and this is just fodder for pedophiles. It’s revolting. Don’t the mother’s realize that or are they that blinded as they live through their kids?
I find Carmen’s mother atrocious. The saddest bit and also the most revealing is when little Carmen saying she’s smiling on the inside.
There’s something really sad when little girl at the contest approaches an older one asking to be her buddy and gets rejected. She looks so crushed and devastated, it breaks your heart. This contest just seems to promote superficial fake beauty over shallowness. The mothers seem to be creating future mean girls obsessed with vanity.
