i posted on a different thread the other day that i saw this for the first time on the weekend and my hubby commented that he was feeling like a creeper seeing these young babies dressed up like dolls and dancing in what we both thought was inappropriate – some of the moms are outright crazy

I don’t agree with it, but some of the girls truly enjoy the competitions. I plan on keeping any daughters I have unexposed that those sort of competitions are even out there. Also, those photos are very much computer enhanced, so they don’t bother me as much as some of the dances the girls do.

I saw a part of an episode or something on the subject awhile back and well I think it’s abuse…

And it’s the parents fault… They are verbally, emotionally, and mentally abusive & it’s clear by the way the poor little girls act ='(

And I think that it’s stealing what these kids should have a right to have and that’s being a kid.

Yep I know I sound kinda harsh but I think it’s that terrible

@Ms Spitfire: I guess I’m not too worried about it happening because they aren’t very common in my area and we don’t have the money to blow on stuff like that, so I don’t have to feel bad about stifling my theoretical daughter’s passion since we have a good reason not to do them. I guess I feel that it is just something that should be up to the parents and the children. If they enjoy them, and it brings them closer together then that it just how it is. Some people are just vain like that, and this activity caters to that trait.

I hate this. They look like mini adults. It’s awful. I watched it once and my biggest issue was that they make them wear fake teeth to hide the one’s that are missing. They are little girls who should have teeth missing! Ugh. It’s making me angry even typing this.

Personally, I find it disturbing….

Absolutely disgraceful.  Parents who put their children through that (who eventually become extremely spoiled/pampered) should be ashamed of theirselves.

This disturbs me more than anything else on television right now.  I think it’s abuse to subject little girls to such ridiculous behavior.   Honestly, it’s the mothers living out their dreams through their children and I find that appalling.   Ugh, it makes my blood to think that some parents think this is ok – it’s not and it sends a terrible message to children out there.

I think when you make small children look like young sexy women that is what makes men lust after children! It is sick to make toddlers  act and look like sexy young women. Its one of the reason that you have men molesting children. The sickness is already there but why do you need anything to make it stronger and make the temptation stronger! So to me when you make your small children look like sexy women, you are setting them up to bad sexual experiences in their life! It is just another sin the satan gets satisfaction from!

I would love to let my kid do it. The problem is kids like to win, and I wouldn’t be okay with half the stuff that wins those pageants. She won’t be half naked, won’t be shaking anything, and I can’t stand the head bobbing with the fists under the chin. I would want her to have fun, while being age-appropriate. Which means she’d probably lose, and it’d be no fun.

Natural ones, probably. I actually don’t mind the makeup of the glitz, but I’d have to explain that this is show makeup, not real life, and she will never go out looking like this in public (outside of pageants). Then again, kids don’t necessarily understand that.

Also, my kids will be well-behaved non-brats, so they probably wouldn’t fit in anyway.
