Sad Lost Dolls.

Yes she is a beautiful child she has that look of innocence that drives men wild. She could make a fortune it is true but is it really the right thing to do.

She will love it all the fuss, the travel the treats the complements from all she meets. There is a future in photo modelling  for her she has that presence that make all who see her stare.

What if she falls into the wrong hands there’s plenty out there who will misuse  her beauty plenty who have nasty plans. No she will be fine no harm will come to this child of mine.

“Mummy , mummy can I go and play?” no my sweet not today. “Please mummy I want my friends to stay!” no you have wok to do send them away. “Please mum can I go to school I want to be with people my age I want to learn and play the fool.”  No we have a teacher for you, there are adverts and film work for you to do.

“Why can’t I have friends around that are my age I don’t the like photographers they rant and rage.” No I told you you are special your very precious. You don’t have time to skip and play face it sweetie  your looks won’t last and you’ll be too tall one day!

We should get a couple more years fame at this rate we are clawing in the money she has time to be young later she can wait. Sadly, sadly that’s not true her childhood  robbed and she becomes sad and blue.

Slowly all her ties get cut  her friends grow few she is neither child nor adult too. The lines of age soon get blurred is she thirteen or 23and a third?

Another form of abuse not quite so obvious but just as dangerous. The parents live their dreams and missed opportunities through their children. Not all but some, child models, child actors, child beauty queens loose their childhoods. They feel no worth unless they are being complimented . They are not balanced, being deprived of growing up through a childhood. Basically they are used as much as if they have been sold in to slavery.  Sad little lost dolls.

    Child abuse isn’t only under the name of violence; here’s a worse case where the parents steal child’s first right of enjoying childhood; years of bliss that never can come twice….Poor Angel embraced with selfishness:(

    Great post, Willow. I do agree that using one’s child (pageants, modeling, etc.) is abusive. Even if the child thinks it’s fun (in the best case scenario) it’s teaching them shallow values, and depriving them of a normal unselfconscious childhood. So sad! (And tragic when it leads them into the wrong hands….)

      Yes so so sad, it can even lead to an early suicide when they cannot cope with normal life after they are no longer in demand, or as you say they fall into the wrong hands! Thank you Betty.xx

      Yes it is a very strange how some mothers can use their children this way. The loose their childhood and become spoilt princesses! I am glad that I have informed you of some of the hidden abuses that go on but I am sorry about the subject matter ! Be happy and have a good day!

    I have never understood this aspect of modern life. Why? It makes no sense. Children ought to have a childhood and not be forced into objecthood so young.

      No it is so strange, do the mothers realize what they are doing forcing their dreams and expectations on their children. Fathers pushing their girls and their boys to work ever harder to achieve an exam, a job they have no aptitude for just what daddy tells them/… why??

    Thank you willowdot for taking such a firm stand again all these young child beauty pageants! This is an incidious way to rob these girls of their childhood and a normal development process.
