Six year old girl labelled the most beautiful girl in the world.
Russian child model, Anastasia Knyazeva, has been named the Most Beautiful Girl In The World after gaining a massive following online and starring in a variety of successful campaigns for kids wear label Chobi Kids.
Her Instagram account, which is run by her mother, currently has over 580,000 followers and she now has fans across the globe.
Each photo posted on the account usually receives thousands of comments, with a lot of them recently saying that she has delicate doll-like features.
People are criticising her mother for allowing such massive exposure online.
Since going viral, the comment section on the young girls photos have concerned fans following numerous ‘creepy’ remarks.
– ‘You are inviting online predators into her life and setting her up to place her entire worth on her looks. I have a beautiful daughter and I would never parade her across the internet like this. ‘
– ‘You need to think about what you are doing. In this day and age we need to protect children.’
– ‘Are not you afraid for the consequences? She’s a child. I think you can not advertise your children, because the world is very cruel. And money will not help. Sorry, this is my opinion.’
Clinical psychologist and parenting expert, Stephanie O’Leary, Psy.D, said that creating social media accounts for young children carries with it hidden risks, shares The Independent.
She said: “Circulating pictures of your child as well as posts that may share your child’s location, plans, and routines provide those who may have ill intimate details of your child’s life.”
“Social media allows others to make comments and even if your child does not read or understand them now, in the future they may have negative reactions to what others said or posted about them.
“As a parent, putting your child in this line of fire has unforeseen consequences that are easily avoided by creating boundaries and only sharing information with people in your real life who are invested in your child and your family.”
Do you think this child is too young to be labelled in such a way?
