I am sure many of you are familiar with the TV reality show called “Toddlers & Tiaras. If you are not, the show revolves around little girls about 5 or 6 years old entering beauty pageants. It is not a show I watch because the idea of it makes me sick. I am not even going to put the video that I just watched on my blog. I will however put a link. Watch it if you dare. It is ridiculous and disgusting and even frightening. I might have nightmares for weeks now that I’ve seen it.
It seems in the last episode they showed a woman giving her child “special juice” before the pageant. The juice contains high amounts of caffeine and sugar so that the child will be more energetic on stage. Evidently, parents of these little ones are even giving them Red Bull.
This show is on TLC which is a Discovery channel. I always thought that TLC stood for “The Learning Channel”. What exactly are we supposed to learn from this TV show? The parents of these little girls ought to be ashamed of themselves.
