Please take a minute to read my petition. The long-standing and current overwhelming opinion in the psychology community concerning children's beauty pageants is that they are not in the best interests of healthy child development. Let our kids be kids mothers! Please come together and help to stop the exploiting! If you sense considerable passion and concern in my petition you are correct. When I think of how fragile kids are as they try to find a place for themselves in this world, it breaks my heart to see them put through this. Lets find a better way to lift up the spirit of our youth. -Jessica M.
