Shows like Toddlers and Tiaras really make it seem like the parents are exploiting their kids. And the little girls, some just 3 year old, dont really get a chance to be kids. What little girl actually wants to wear pounds of makeup and go tanning every week? And why do the parents want their children to be judged solely on beauty? Shouldnt we be teaching kids that there is more than looks? Personally, I have a son so pageants wont really be an issue for me but if I had a daughter I could NEVER imagine putting my daughter in it and acting like parents on those shows that take it TOO FAR. And my question is, would YOU ever put your daughter in beauty pageants. Now, im not trying to offend anyone and if you are a pagent mom I'd love to get your perspective. Maybe you can shed some light.Answer Question

My 10 year old daughter has been in 35 different pageants. She started when she was 4 and went to see her friend in one. She asked if she could do it. We have so much fun at the pageants and it is a fun mom and daughter activity. My daughter and 3 of her brothers are involved in sports and like pageants you have some psycho parents who live through their kids. I actually have had more bad experiences with crazy sports parents than pageant moms. My daughter is very much involved in school, reading, sports and doing volunteer work. She is a well rounded kid that realizes this is for fun and her beauty is not everything. She wants to be a pediatrician someday when she puts her mind to something she achieves it. She has earned a substantial amount of money that will more than pay for any dream she does have as an adult.
