Writing Activity 5B
Prompt: Some people believe beauty pageants help children develop confidence and public speaking skills. Others believe that children should not focus on whether or not they look beautiful. Should children (ages 6-12) compete in beauty pageants? Explain your opinion.
From Emmitriana, Bogalusa, LA:
Honestly, I think everyone is beautiful no matter if they feel that they are not or someone tells them they are not. Some people think just because you win,you are more beautiful or more popular than everyone else.You are just making yourself look bad.It also does help children develop confidence and public speaking skills. When they get older, they can get on the stage or in front of a crowd at any time without getting nervous or stage fright.So, I do think children ages six through twelve should compete in beauty pageants.
From Billy, LaCenter, KY:
I think that you should not have to think if you are beautiful or not, but I do believe that we should leave it up to the child who is going to do it. If she wants to think that she is a beautiful girl and she wants to be in a pageant she should be allowed to follow her dreams.
From Lindsey, LaCenter, KY:
NO, children should definitely not compete in pageants, because while it might develop confidence and public speaking skills, it teaches young girls that they need to be s exualized to be beautiful. For example, little girls no older than the age of 8 prance around in skimpy clothing while wearing about 10 pounds of make up and hair products. Young girls should be taught that natural beauty is what is really beautiful, and that your personality is more important than your looks.
From Walkema, Florida:
I think that some people are beautiful in their own way. There may be some people that may want their kid(s) to compete in pagents to show off their style and confidence.Also some people say kids should not be focused on whether they look good or not my opinion is that kids can go anywhere looking any type of way as long as they are condfident with there self. For example,a 10 year old boy in a beauty pageant wins now when he goes back to school he"s going to think that he looks better than everyone.People are beautiful no matter what if you have a gap in your teeth you're still beautiful.Being beautiful is one thing you should is always know.
From Jalah, Miami, FL:
Honestly, I think everyone should follow what they believe not what people tell them about themselves. i think chilren at any age should be what they think they are. Some kids don't enter beauty pagents just to think that they are better than everyone they enter to show off their style and have FUN!!!! with family and friends to show them people who talk bad about them what they are cable of.I think kids should always have experinces in life by what they choice to have not what they're told. kids have choices to make in this world and they all have different talents parents should not stop their kids from what they are dreaming of to become or do.As a kid myself I like money that's what they get at beauty pageants. Kids have dreams too most positively the little ones.
From Troy, Bogalusa, LA:
Beauty is a self-built perk. Some people feel beautiful without the aid of a pageant or make up. Some people on the other end feel that they do, some people strive and feed off of the atmosphere of a pageant and in the boiled down point it makes them feel pretty. I mean don't get me wrong if someone wants to feel pretty then let them be. But most people that are into those pageants get cocky and grow a HUGE ego. Some become to feel that they are better than others and that's where the line needs to be dropped. No one is better than anyone, we all have our flaws and we surely shouldn't pick on or purposely point out others'. Just because you win a pageant doesn't mean you are royalty and you're better than anyone else. Being pretty is one thing; being a arrogant egotistical loser is another.
From Alyssa, Bogalusa, LA:
I think that everyone should feel beautiful. Feeling beautiful gives you confidence that you need to be successful in life. Beauty pageants are in some way a bad influence. For example, a little girl in a beauty pageant wins, and now she thinks she's better than everyone else. There's confidence, and there's arrogance. I believe that beauty pageants are good, but to a certain extent.
From Sharmeequah, Bogalusa, LA:
I think that they should be able to compete in beauty pageants. I think this because this means that when they get older, they will be able to do things like this without any stage fright. This is why I think that ages six through twelve should compete in beauty pageants.
From Tiandra, Florida:
I believe that children of all ages should love who they are and what they look like.It shouldn't matter if you're in a beauty pageant or not.I do believe children ages 6-12 should have a choice on whether or not they want to be in a pageant or not.On the other hand I believe that children shouldn't worry too much about their looks worry about what they look like but how they act? would be more of the question because you wouldn't want to hang around a beautiful child with a stink attitude.
From Tyrese, Florida:
I think that they should not compete in beauty pageants. It's not about how you look. I think this because kids are not old to do this. They might lose,based on what the judges think or say. That's why I think that kids 6-12 should not compete in beauty pageants
From Sameshia, Bogalusa, LA:
I think that everyone is beautiful! No matter if you win or lose,you should never give up. Beauty pageants are really what you make out of it, so yeah i believe children 6-12 should compete.
