  • Yes, its a local one here at our community center and she asked to because someone asked her if she was in it. I wouldnt do all the Glitz and Glam big time pageants though. To me its too much money time and stress. Just my opinion!

  • no. because your positive reinforcement is mostly about looks, and that shouldn't be what you get praise for, because looks fade.

  • No. I don't think my girls would have wanted to be in a Pageant...and my son NEVER. LOL. They have other talents and too much going for them in the brains department. :-)

  • I only do the one here because every girl gets a crown and they have so many categories everybody wins something! It's simple and fair. There is nothing fancy about it. You are required to dress your child in play clothes.

    I agree sandypops... it took us a minute to agree to let her do our local one.

  • LindaLu -- just because someone is pretty or in pageants doesnt mean they are lacking in the brain dept.

  • No way! I especially hate when parents/grandparents put make up on their little girls just to win those stupid things.. I literally want to punch those people in the face!

  • I used to think so... but knowing what they are really all about, absolutely not.
