I wouldn't for me but if they asked me if they could do it I would seriously consider it ... Altho I'd probably compromise with a princess party!
Not my child. Ever. Period.
TANSTAAFL- There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.
only if it was something that my child was asking to do.
Oh god no!! I do not care how much she wanted it, she could wait until she was a teenager (16 or older). I am firmly against it. I think it is wrong to do that to little girls. Caked on makeup, bitching about their weight, stressing them out for what? So Mommy can have her moment of glory ... no.
Abusive and disgusting in my opinion.
Honestly, to each their own. Just because I dont find it to be something I would want my child in doesn't mean I am going to tell someone else they are wrong for wanting to do it. I just feel that people don't always make the best decisions, whether or not they feel that pagents are a good thing to do for their children. But if my daughter wanted to do it just for fun, minus all those costs, makeup, etc. then I wouldl let her do it. I mean after all, its the parents job to teach their children to be strong and independent, not a pagent. So while I tend to disagree with them, I won't be the one to tell another parent if they should or should not put their child in one.
Of course there are ways to make it positive. Thats how you are soposed to parent your children. Would I put my child in a pageant? Only if I had the money for the supplies and my child wanted to do it. But she wouldnt and doesn't care too. No parent should force their child to be in a pageant. That is shitty parenting. Those things are soposed to be fun.
