Beauty pageants should be used to display a girls beauty, talent, and intelligence all at the same time. The clothes the participants wear should be less sexual. The songs they sing should be age appropriate songs. Little girls should not be viewed as sexy but cute and adorable. The pageants should also display their natural beauty. Putting so much make-up on a young girl, the parents are damaging their skin and faces. When they get older their faces will be all messed up because of the make-up and they will not be viewed as beautiful then. Child beauty pageants should be banned because it set bad examples to young girls and attract the wrong crowd sometimes.
