Should children use make -up?


Yahoo images

The use of make up by children is on the rise.Reasons are not far fetched.Mums,peers,society...
Mums, however are mostly the first influence to be considered among others because of the nearness of the female child to the home.Charity begins at home.
'When mum is making up,I watch her and suddenly,I pick up her lip stick to use.She doesn't budge',said a five year old.

Another said, 'each time I pick mama's make up,she tells me to drop it,saying that it's not for children'.
In whichever way, mums can influence the use or even discourage it.But according to findings,mums influence this.

Remember the story of Reality star Farrah Abraham who defended her decision to allow her 7-year-old daughter, Sophia, to wear makeup to school ? She is indebted to her own opinion but sexualizing a child is in itself an abuse.It means giving  unnecessary exposure which may distract the child from her primary focus at that stage of her life.The focus of children should be studies,extra curricular activities,learning morals,values, and  play.

However,light make up like powder and sometimes gloss can do for a photo shoot or an outing.the emphasis on this also should be minimal as children have the nature to stick to habits faster because of their tender nature.Remember,they are in the most delicate stage of their lives:'THE MOLDING STAGE',any mistake at this stage could be costly!
Mums are advised to be wise about this.Put your feet down and speak in love.

Talking about  Farrah defending her daughter's to wear make up to school doesn't sound cool within the educational set-up because schools have ethics for teachers, and rules for the pupils they teach, which is in line with WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE INCULCATED INTO THEM.
In fact, the rights of children should revolve round their personality as 'children', and not ADULTS IN THE BODY OF CHILDREN!

Education believes in PROGRESSION.As children develop,so will changes occur which will come naturally.It will be out of place for a teenager to act like a five year old.or a youth,act like a teen.This could only occur if something is psychologically or mentally wrong!
THE ISSUE OF CHILDREN'S RIGHTS CAN BE ABUSED. PARENTS SHOULD KNOW WHAT RIGHTS ARE;THINGS, SITUATIONS,CONDITIONS THAT JUSTIFY THE AGE OF THAT CHILD.

If the Proprietress,Head teacher or teachers wear make up, that's not enough reason for a child to follow suit.CHILDREN SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO BE CHILDREN!
