  • i hate them. i'm with you. i cant believe that parents let their kids do that. ...if a child is old enough to say, "hey, will you dress me up and display me bc i'm so cute?" then i MIGHT THINK ABOUT IT. ...but ...ugh. i think it's not right.

  • They are just wrong, they put so much makeup on them that they don't even look like a child anymore. Beauty should be all natural not a ton of makeup.

  • I don't like them. I don't like the idea of putting tons of makeup on little girls and dressing them like adults. I also don't like the attitude some of the parents seem to have. It's disturbing.

  • I'm addicted to the shows. I wouldn't ever put my kid in a glitz pageant, but I like the natural pageants. I think they're cute, especially since all of the natural pageant parents I've seen on the show are very interested in what the child is feeling. For example, the one mom put a crinoline on her 7 or 8 year old and she was really uncomfortable, so they took it off and she went without it. Women who encourage their children to do it because the girls like it, are fine in my opinion. Glitz pageants are way too much for me though.

  • they are totally disgusting! putting fake teeth and loads of makeup on kids of ANY age is sickening, let alone 2 & 3 year olds! now if they just dressed them up cute- no make up- and had them dance around or sing or something i would be totally fine with pagents. it's just the toddlers looking like adults that aggrivates me to no end.
