No, I have never put my child into a pageant.
No, I would not like to try it.
I don't think pageants are fair to little girls by saying that if they don't win then they aren't pretty enough or good enough. Their feelings when they are young are so easily hurt.
If I had a child who really wanted to do it, then I would find a local, no-fuss pageant to enter her in. I would prefer my daughter to be a teen, though, before wanting to be in a pageant so she would understand what she was in for.
Before you ask, no, I would not enter my son. What types of pageants are for boys? The best tuxedo's?
