How Do You Feel About Children and Pageants?

How do you feel about beauty pageants for small children? (Specifically ages 0-10) If you've seen shows like Toddlers & Tiaras, you know what it's all about. 

Would you ever let your son or daughter do pageants? Do you agree with that sort of lifestyle?

Here's a preview of the show Toddlers & Tiaras for those who haven't seen it.

I think that they are ridiculous and disgusting... and no, my daughter will NEVER be allowed to participate in them.

I am a Private School sending, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Homework Helping, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Academic pushing Mother. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it raising my child - I will do that, Thank You. I believe that a woman's place is in the home taking care of her house, children and husband. I am submissive and proud, my husband is head of my home. I am a proud, traditional Roman Catholic, as is my husband... Yes we are teaching our children that The Church is the only Church.               Aimee

You can be in pagents and not make it a lifestyle... I was in a bunch as a toddler... I always won prettiest face or best smile... had a ton of trophies and tiaras.... but I dont care much about getting prissied up now... i'm a tom boy... always was...

 I like the idea of the natural pageants but would never do anything like they do on Toddlers and Tiaras.

I'll let dd do a few but nothing like T&T. And nothing like the pageant moms I've met on here, airbrushing their 4 year old's photos.. it's disgusting really.

I might do on an all natural one. Its highly unlikely as I don't want to spend the money nor time to find one.
