Dressing young girls under age of course like burlesque dancers in my eyes is wrong they are 6 to 12 years old and are dressed up like a 19 year old tart about to go out partying.

I am very against them it sends out all the wrong signals in life to young impressionable minds all over the place.

I dont think they are just influenced onlyt by fashion shows. Movies/tv etc have a greater impact. Although this is where the parental control comes into play. If 6-12 year old are dressed like tars, then I blame the parents more than fashion shows.

Look at that woman who puts botox in the her kid to win, you can deny that is not harming a child.

Ofc I agree with you its the parents faults but why would you enter your child in one of those degrading shows?

I dont think it does any good either. I consider it purely an entertainement option, like movies or TV shows.

If I was a parent, I would never force my kid to enter into those and it definitely would not be my choice of career for my kids. As long as it is done purely for fun and entertainment it is OK by me.

Definitely. If it comes to light, the law should punish the parent severly for such an act. As I said before, these are extreme cases which cross the "for fun" limits.


To be frank, many contestant/organizers consider these contests as an expression of feminity or women empowerment etc, though I consider the motivation to be purely commercial. It is also used as a showcase by desginers.

Answer this honestly....if you have a cute kid and some toys/garment designer approaches you to feature your kid in their next showcase event (which may be a rampwalk), how many would you say no? (none of the botox nonsese applies)

I've only ever seen this on TV, and its always American based. The way some of those are, is terrible! They make girls as young as 8-9 dress like they're in their late teens! Whats wrong with having a normal child hood where you play daft games, hide and seek, "house" etc.?
