We all have our guilty pleasures in life.. and right now mine is toddlers and tiaras..
I know this is cringe worthy, thus the guilt side but its a mindless escape from what can sometimes be a stress filled reality. There are many pros and cons of childhood beauty pageants, alot of people believe it sexualises children and I admit some of the beauty shots and the lengths parents go to to make their children look older is cringey. But the show also demonstrates its like any other hobby or activity, it builds confidence and character in these girls which are traits that will help them through life.
I watch it for pure entertainment though.. the pageant mums who are trying to live out their dreams, the pageant dads who sew the dresses, train the daughters and do their hair and makeup and still claim to be straight.. and last but not least the kids. The tantrums, the brats, and the little cuties who really do love it.
Tune in for a mindless break from reality.
