I am a mother and grandmom and I have become so dismayed in the past years at how much our society has taken the innocence of youth away.  I happened to turn on TLC last week and saw "Toddlers and Tiaras", a program about young children from 18 mos. to 5 yrs. old participating in beauty pageants.  It made me sick to my stomach to watch how the parents were pushing their kids into practicing their dance routines...many very sexy...and putting on all sorts of make-up and curling eyelashes (even a little boy!) and attaching hair falls...well, it was horrible.  The parents swear their children love it...but you can see the kids perform to be loved because they are "pretty" or lost because "they didn't smile enough"(after Mom told them that)  It is child abuse in every way and I wanted to grab those parents and shake them and ask them if they don't see the harm they are doing to their children!  Please sign my petition" Toddlers and Tiaras" , asking TLC to take it off the air..and then I wish to go after these pageants.  Either they clean up their acts or they should be closed down.  Making small children into small sexy lookalikes is a crime to me.
