I don't normally say it like this, but OH EM GEE.
Before I go on my rant, I want to say that these little girls really are beautiful, even more so without the caked on makeup and 10lbs of hairspray.
What disturbs me are their mothers.
What kind of mother puts their daughter up in a pageant, then displays the ultimate portrait of a sore loser when they don't win? What kind of example do they possibly think they are setting? I understand going in with confidence, but just like with sports and any other competitive activity, shouldn't we teach our children to accept something less than first place? As parents, it's only natural that we want our children to win, but isn't it more important that they just enjoy what they're doing? Clearly, these little girls do enjoy it (I think) but something makes me believe they enjoy it for the wrong reasons. What do you think?
