I Hope I'm Not Stepping On Anyone's Toes, But...

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 agree with you on this if the child doesn't want to do it the partents should not  force them to do it.

 I hate those shows!  I think it's pathetic.  They aren't actually for the little girls--it ends up being about the moms.  Are they living vicariously through their daughters?  Trying to win validation by winning?  Those little girls don't look human to me.

A pageant for little girls should be about THEM---their talents, minds and hearts.  I want to see a show with little girls that have normal hair, growing a new tooth or two --and a skinned knee with a great story of adventure behind it.

I watched last night for a bit one mom was yelling, swearing, threatening while holding her little girl & dragging her son by the hand.  It was to much for me & made me so angry.  I do not understand it either.
