People who want to be judged on "beauty" normally have nothing else to offer. Please please please find another hobby to develope your child's self esteem.

From what I've seen on the TLC show, it looks like it's always these wanna beover the hill moms who try to live vicariously through their daughters pushing them into situations they typically don't want to be. Then the poor daughters have to live being judged on their looks and are humiliated when they don't measure up to other trailer park mom's kids beside them. Seems like a great bonding experience for the dysfunctional moms and daughters.

and people who spout this crap every time a damn beauty pageant it talked about normally don't have what it takes to be in one.
theres more to it than people like you know. educate yourself before making ignorant comments.

if toddlers and tiaras is the only experience you have with pageants then you know NOTHING about pageants.
but i have to say you must make a great example for your own child with your trailer park comments........go mom

Oh? There's a lot more to it you suggest? Tell me, what else is involved other than taking a fragile little girl, putting a fake wig, false teeth, and a spray tan and parading her around the stage like cattle in front of a bunch of overweight, low income moms who spend the last penny they make trying to get a better dress and wig for their kid than yours? If you had any sense, you would realize that the only ones who benefit from these "pageants" are the organizers. They cash in on your naive hopes that these contests are somehow going to get your little snowflake noticed by some talent or modeling agency and lead them down the road to the land of riches. Meanwhile, you spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on all these wigs, teeth, dresses and "coaches" thinking you're just one pageant away from a big break or a tv show. That money would much better spent if you took it to a therapist to help you understand why you feel the need to pin all of your unmet and unrealized dreams on your poor daughter.
But I digress. I'm sure I just don't get it either.

maybe you should educate yourself. we have never used wigs, fake teeth or tans. its a fun thing for little girls to do if they want to. its no different than spending a bunch of money on football or any other sport for little boys.
as long as the kid wants to do it and has fun doing it i don't see a problem.
of course theres always the few uneducated people that make their smart mouth comments about kiddie porn and crap like that. and theres those idiots on toddlers and tiaras that make the whole thing look bad.

You people with the negative comments about pageants know nothing about them. My daughter was in pageants for many years. It was a fun hobby for her. She won some and lost some. No big deal for her. That being said, her interview skills are amazing bc of the experience. She has gotten every job she has applied for and going through college she had several interviews and was always complimented on them. She has more self esteem, met lots of good friends, lost her fear of public speaking, and can look back at her fun experiences with a smile. It's not all negative like you think. She was never pushed, she just loved doing them. If a child is pushed to do something they do not want to do, that's when it's wrong.
It's no different than these men who push their sons into ball, and go crazy on them when they make a mistake. Most of these men are living through their sons with wishing it was them. So there, it's no different, just a different sport.
Please don't comment on things you know nothing about.

I worked at a hotel when I was younger. There were several pagents that went on while I worked there. Pagents are a form of child abuse. These little girls where being plucked, waxed, spray-tanned, and not to mention getting yelled at. None of the little girls seemed happy they had to go through all this most were screaming and crying. Personally I think it is creepy to size a 4 or 5 year old child all made looking like they are 30. I also think these little girls are pedophile magnets. You can say what you want but these children are being exploited.

Beauty pageants are really a joke when it comes to little girls. Most are so over made with makeup and fake hair and fake tans, no natural beauty. I know of a mother that will not let her child eat much of anything to make her stay bone skinny and that is disguisting, this is a 6 year old child and to me that is a form of child abuse. They spend hundreds of dollars on dresses they can not afford and starve their kids....education is much more important than being fake.

I agree. Health and education should come first. That mother should be ashamed.
