Let me start out by saying that I do not want this to happen in any way shape or form. I just don't like the whole Toddlers and Tiaras thing.
That being said she is beggin for me to enter her in an upcoming contest, 2 or her friends are in it, the entry fee alone is $300, checked about dresses and they are crazy expensive as well.
I want a find a way to convince her that her personality and brains are what is important.
Dad says we should let her, but I do not want her to do it period.
And hey if you are into it, that is fine, it just to me sends a bad message.

No, enroll her in an extracurricular activity that builds real self esteem such as a sport or Volunteer position. How about something at the local Library. They are always looking for teens to volunteer to help out with infant/toddler activities. Maybe she'll even be interested in Teaching children one day. Beauty Contests provide no future. You are her Mom & should guide her in the right direction now. She is too young to know what is good for her.
