Too young?

Body image issues seem to be starting at younger and younger ages.  Beauty pageants for very young children are a growing industry.  As a mom, I find it hard to watch anything to do with beauty pageants for young children (or any pageants for that matter).  This blog post is one person’s opinion about this issue.   http://www.rte.ie/ten/2011/0411/blog_tv_tvwatch.html

Are beauty pageants dangerous for young children…both the participants and those who can now watch it on TV?
