Cafemom "showdowns" are we mothers or just insecure teenagers here?

I mean, putting your child agaist another to be JUDGED by the general public on their apperance?

Are these mothers that insecure?

Sure say "it's just for fun." but really, it's DEGRADING, do you not think?

  • No I don't think it's degrading, it is just for fun and most of the time it's just against friends. If you don't like it don't bother looking at it and don't participate. Easy as that.

  • I don't participate, I am secure enough to not have to submit my children to be judged the cutest for me to feel they are worth something.

  • I just do it for fun, I think my kids are better looking then any others but what mother does not. I think ripping other moms who do is insecure of you.

  • I don't participate in them no. I know my kids are beautiful and don't need to enter a contest to convince myself or others that they are.
