My brother has his 9 or 10 year daughter entering beauty pageants and it kind of weirds me out. He posts pictures of her all make-up'd up on Facebook and every time I see them, it just feels a bit weird to me. She's cute and all, but when she's got the make-up and hair done, she looks way older. I mean, she's a little girl. He says she enjoys it. My daughters at that age enjoyed putting on make-up, too, but more often than not, they looked like cute little clowms. So I'm wondering: What do the pageants teach little girls? Thanks.
