I was very worried at first about writing this paper because I could not decide on a specific topic and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to write 3 to 4 pages on it. After writing the paper I probably would not include as much background information on the child beauty pageants so that I had more space left for the topic I was writing on. I also may have chosen an even more specific topic concerning these beauty pageants so that I would have been able to go into more detail about the psychological effects during and after children participate in the beauty pageants. I definitely could have continued to write on the topic that I chose had we not been given a limit on the number of pages.
I chose this topic because I wanted something that I believe society’s views has affected. We have already talked so much about violence in the media and entertainment so I wanted to choose something at the other end of the spectrum. I have always found this topic to be disturbing after watching a few episodes of TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras. I wanted to choose a topic that I felt passionate about so that I was able to put my all into the paper.
My other main concern for writing this paper is that I would not be able to find enough references to use. Especially one’s that I could use to out of our book that could specifically identify with the topic at hand. After I choose my topic and started researching and quickly found that this was not the case. There are many resources that share the same view as I and a lot more studies than I would have expected. Once again my only regret is that I ran out of pages. I would have liked to use more of these resources and been able to quote more of what they had to say. I would have liked to have more room to show how some of what was said by the authors in our book pertained to this subject.
I hope that you enjoy this paper and are able to relate to my views.
