My daughters want to be in beauty pageants. I am new to this kind of thing, so is there anyone in the area you recommend I talk to to get them started?

They have wanted to for a while. If that wasn't the case I would have initially said, "I would like to get my daughters in some beauty pageants".

i used to work at a day care center, lve been around probably over 2000 girls during that time, and anytime a child was in a beauty pageant it was the mothers doing...Ive never seen or heard of a child coming up with that torture on their own...it's just not that entertaining for a child, it's actually a lot of work, and no fun for them..then to add insult to injury, all but one lose ......so that's why I was asking, so don't get your panties in a bunch, if you wear any.

You're telling me not to get my panties in a bunch? Seriously? Reread these and see who said what on here. Good grief lady. My niece is in beauty pageants every now and then where she lives. My daughters see pictures of their older cousin they look up to. What's the big deal!

nothing is the big deal..you oviously wanted to start a debate for putting your question on here because if you read any post, topics is the kinda site for debate...I spend about 2 minutes looking up your question on the Internet and came up with the answers to your questions..you must have the Internet or you wouldn't be on here...so use common sense and type in beauty pageants southern ohio, on google, in 2 minutes, you'll have all the answers you need...however if you want a debate, I'm here, obviously im against child modeling that programmes young children to be ultra conscious about physical apperance, and most of the time effects their self image and also a lot of them wind up with eating disorders.....it's not "dress up" it's a multi billion dollar industry that preys on young girls, and also glorify reality shows on the subject for profit.....just because she looks up to her older cousin doesn't make it the correct thing to do as a parent....now, enough said, I said my take on it, so take it as a grain of salt, or listen, your choice.

My daughter who is nearing 40 now wanted to be in pageants because her friends at dancing school did. She was very successful at it, never stressed. She loved all the attention. That's the good news. Now it has pretty much ruined her life. She has a problem with everyone thinking she is a big deal at anything she does. She brags on herself all the time & is very self-centered. If I had to say my name I would not admit any of this, however no one would be surprised. Please rethink this. I am sadly speaking from experience & wish some wise ol gal would have told me this many years ago. Doing what is right is the hardest thing to do & we want to give in to our children, and I have, but in retrospect that is one of the biggest changes I would have made in my life. She has a college degree & a high paying job but is still not happy if she isn't getting all the attention. This has caused trouble in her marriage and with her friends. Please listen, I am not trying to cause trouble and I only wish you the best but every time see a child in pageants now I cringe.

Ever considered that she was always or already a person who wanted such attention and under the spotlight and that the wanting to be in pageants as well as her success in them was simply a symptom or manifestation of her personality? Pageants don't always mess people up. People with problems often partake in pageants and later blame pageants when they are older and responsible and no long have the excuse of being a child or immature. Did pageants mess your daughter up in some ways? Possibly. But considering she "never stressed" I doubt it. And yes, I have my doctorate in Psychology before anyone wants to flame my remarks as drug store psychology or meaningless.

If you perceive what I said as nothing or at most 1-1=0, then that is fine. I am confident that the person my comment was intended to will make more sense from it. You should be more concerned with why you are staying up all night monitoring a forum in which a person enquired about something for their children. I am grading papers and need something grotesque and entertaining on the other side of the screen to keep me awake. What is your excuse? Kudos on your efforts.

Thanks for telling us about your job bitch. You must take a lot of breaks. Most people call and check on their family when they take a break. Or they take a piss or get a coffee. You try to tell someone what they should be doing with their kids and you don't even know them. I think beauty contest and shit is stupid myself but reading through your posts were more annoying than anything. Mind you own business.

She is my daughter so of course I considered this. I am not a professional however I was there to see things you did not. She was not this way before she started the pageants at all. When I started seeing this problem present itself I pulled her out of pageants and she did not protest nor miss them. She does not blame pageants for her behavior, I do. She can't even see she has a problem so she blames no one. I appreciate your imput however you may want to continue helping those who you have personally evaluated. I was only trying to give this lady some advice I wish someone had given me. Thank you though, I know you were trying to help.

OMG. People like you are so predictable. I knew you would respond with all of that. You're still responding as well-15 minutes after I ran my mouth. This forum is the highlight of your life. Sad but funny. I'm done messing you. I feel more sorry for you than I do the mother you bashed.

If your daughters wanna do it then I say let them try it out. My best friend was on pageants from the tons she was 3 and she won hundreds of trophys. She actually won a pageant in high school that paid for her college education. There are some famous tv personalities that have got their start thru pageants. You should talk to the Lady at The Ritz in Portsmouth. She would know how to get your daughters started.
