I would not personally but I don't want to tell other parents they cannot do it. I just don't value the fake aspect of pageants and trying to find "talent" in your looks. I value imagination, free play, unstructured time with my child, and outings in nature or urban places like museums or zoos. I don't assume every parent has the same values I do so to each their own. I am sure a pagent parent would tell me there is plenty of creativity in entering a pagent and their child has plenty of free time. I guess when it comes down to it I am not interested.

no i dont agree with it, i have seen the show and most of the moms are physically gross (fat and unkept) and seem to be living through their poor kids. no i dont like it one bit... i am okay with costume contest, things that dont look at your kid for their beauty as judged by random strangers. why would you put your kid up to that?? so superficial. i dont think doing it makes you a bad parent alone... but i think it is an indication of a shallow person.
