I dont see why you all have to judge us like what we do is "child abuse", My daughter LOVES doing the pageants and if she was to tell me she didnt want to do it then she wouldnt have to, I dont force her to do it, she loves getting her nails done, having her hair fixed pretty, etc. Why is it so bad for my daughter to enjoy being a princess, the way every little girl should?

OK, I had my oldest daughter start in pageants. MANY Moms THINK their daughters LOVE it, many are blinded by the real effects it has on the daughter. If it is truly being enjoyed by the child, which is more the exception, then fine. But MANY and the majority of the girls think that they will be letting their Mom down if they don't like it, it is trying to please the Mom and NOT the child. I have lived this and saw it first hand. My daughter was 4 in her first pageant, another contestant SPIT on her and said "I'm going to win, I always win", of course I confronted the Mom and her response was "well she will win, she always does". SAD!! If the Mom can be objective and the child doesn't feel threatened, the child will actually NOT like the pageant life. My two daughters are princesses WITHOUT all of that vanity!!
