Toddlers & Tiaras is a "reality TV show" that follows the lives of very young children (starting from age 3 and above) behind the beauty pageant scene. The episodes of this series shows children getting pampered and beautified in preparation for pageants in which they might win princess beds, puppies, vacation trips, and cash prizes.
Those are just some of the bad physical effects that these children may get because of joining beauty pageants like the ones they join in Toddlers & Tiaras, I haven't even started on the psychological effects.
Some may say that confidence and self-esteem are the reasons why children beauty pageants like these exists but I'm pretty sure there are other ways to achieve these things.
