I find Toddlers in Tiaras and child pageants in general to be absolutely ridiculous. Little girls should look like little girls, and to slather on the make-up, put in hair extensions and/or wigs, fake teeth, false eyelashes to make them look old and plastic is something I do not understand AT ALL!!

I was in a couple of pageants as a five -seven yr old. The only make I wore was a little blush and maybe a bit of lip color.... It wasn't like it is now ....none of the girls wore pancake make up or given any type of caffeine . I did two, placed both times, but when I said I didn't want to, mom said, no problem.

Today's pageants are bordering on abuse in my opinion.

My daughter watched it because she liked Honey Boo Boo. That's when I saw the absurd lengths those pageant moms went to. They spend an exorbitant amount of money and it's like life or death to them. They parade their children around like trick ponies, and I think it's horrible!

I think it sends a bad message to our Beautiful Girls that in order for you to think you're Beautiful others have too and if they don't that's bad .  I tell my DD Trinity that the only Peoples opinions she need be concerned about is ours.

It's sad how many of them i see on there Throw fits because they don't want to do it.  Moms living through their children PISS me off.  Let them be them for frick sake banging head into wall

I think it is very funny that some of these parents will spend this amount of money on a 3 year old beauty pageant, yet I wonder if they would spend the same for that child's college education?

And only the "winners" get any prize money, so if you are not the winner of the day and go home with no prize money, how will they ever afford college for these kids???

Uhg, sweet peas aren't working for me at the moment, but if they were I would applaud your actions.
