Toddlers and Tiaras: Histrionics in the Making

September 3, 2011

There are so many things wrong with these child pageants, I don’t know where to start. If you want to know more about the origins of histrionic personality disorder, take a good look at these people. Attention-seeking parents raising attention-seeking kids. That is bad news. These kids are a nightmare waiting to happen. If you think they are little monsters now, wait and see what they are like when they reach adolescence.

Notice the lack of boundaries. Notice the unchecked behavior. Notice the tantrums and the extreme emotionality. Notice how the parents reward bad behavior. These spoiled brats will carry this behavior onto adulthood.

This should be a red alert. This is borderline child abuse. These children are being objectified and taught their only value as a human being is linked to superficial judgments. This early objectification makes them prime targets for predators. And that means they are going to be even more screwed up.

These children will never have enough attention. And when someone needs attention this badly, it can only spell disaster down the line. Attention-seekers often suffer from severe depression when they do not get that attention. Like drug addicts who are desperate to find their next fix, these children will learn to do ANYTHING for attention. And that includes self-destructive behavior. From a very young age, these girls are being conditioned to associate drama with attention. Bad news on the horizon, folks.

    Some of you will think I am over-reacting. So let me remind you of the symptoms of HPD:
    * Exhibitionist behavior.
    * Constant seeking of reassurance or approval.
    * Excessive dramatics with exaggerated displays of emotions, such as hugging someone they have just met or crying uncontrollably during a sad movie (Svrakie & Cloninger, 2005).
    * Excessive sensitivity to criticism or disapproval.
    * Proud of own personality, unwillingness to change and any change is viewed as a threat.
    * Inappropriately seductive appearance or behavior.
    * Somatic symptoms, and using these symptoms as a means of garnering attention.
    * A need to be the center of attention.
    * Low tolerance for frustration or delayed gratification.
    * Rapidly shifting emotional states that may appear superficial or exaggerated to others.
    * Tendency to believe that relationships are more intimate than they actually are.
    * Making rash decisions.

    Now take a look at that posted video. These children are displaying HPD symptoms at a very young age. These symptoms are being rewarded with attention. This should be very alarming.

    Attention is a drug that produces feelings of euphoria. These parents are basically feeding their children with high-doses of this drug.

    When these children aren’t on stage, they are suffering from withdrawal symptoms. With every high there is a crash. When you see these girls having tantrums, it is not your average child throwing a fit. These kids are off the charts.

    What you are witnessing is a dangerous addiction developing at a very young age. And that means it will be nearly impossible to change this behavior later on in life. These kids are hardwired for attention-seeking. This addiction can only get worse.

      Life on stage is not real. That’s why so many people in showbiz have trouble dealing with reality. That’s why so many of them turn to drugs and alcohol to get them through life. Studies have shown that the adrenaline high one gets on stage is equivalent to the rush a soldier gets in the heat of battle. In everyday life, there is no equivalent. That is why these people go on to become addicts and troublemakers. If you wanna know what these little girls are going to be like in 15 years, watch Celebrity Rehab. It is no coincidence that most of these troubled celebrities were once child stars.

    Dear incompetent parents,
    3 yr olds are not suppose to be spray-tanned. They are not suppose to wear lipstick or mascara. What the hell is wrong with you?

    I know a lot of you Pollyanas out there will say these kids will grow out of the Terrible Twos. And you’d be wrong.

    These kids have been conditioned for drama since they were born. They were raised in chaotic environments, raised to raise hell. Many of them will experience some sort of emotional trauma by age 3. This will arrest their emotional development. They will grow up to be adults who act like children.

    Most histrionic don’t mellow out until their mid 30s. But in between now and then, a histrionic can cause a lot of damage. Amy Fisher, Casey Anthony, Amy Winehouse, etc.. These are all examples of what could happen if this condition is not kept in check. In other words, it will get a lot worse before it gets better.

    What these little “angels” are demonstrating is abusive behavior. It might be entertaining to watch on TV, but imagine being subjected to these tantrums on a daily basis. Imagine a grown adult treating people this way. These little girls will have plenty of time to perfect their manipulative behavior. They will have plenty of time to cause misery and mayhem.

      These irresponsible parents are sexualizing 3yr old girls. That is wildly inappropriate, borderline abusive. These girls are still babies and they are being forced into adulthood. And then we wonder why 12yr old girls are posing as 18 yr old girls. These babies are being conditioned for histrionic personality disorder. And that will spell tragedy for the rest of their lives. Histrionics are drawn to reality shows for a reason. They love the attention. They live for the camera. It is a showcase for their drama. But what you do not see is their life off camera. That is where you find most of the chaos and destruction.
