    How do you all feel about baby pageants? Do you think they are a bad idea or a good idea?

    Personally, I was apart of a baby pageant when I was young. xD I won best eyes.
    My mom didn't come back though because the parents were so ruthless. The judges were cracked up too.

    Interesting choice of words.

    Why do you feel that way though?

    @Gabby i understand that people have fun doing them but most of the time its the parents who have the most fun
    ive seen a lot of shows and know a few kids who were in them when they were younger and never have i seen one of those kids say 'IT WAS REALLY FUN!!!!!' because theyre usually forced into it
    if a child wants to get all dolled up then fair does but the parents usually dont realise how miserable the kids are about the whole ordeal so i really dont approve of them. forcing your child to do anything is horrible.
    i think that pageants are also kind of sleazy. like, you honestly cant tell who is in the audience watching those little girls do the swimsuit contests. it shouldnt be allowed.

    it might just be what I've seen in the media, but any pageants that are kids are just parents dressing up their children like hooker barbie dolls. Baby ones might be a little different, I have no idea. But for little kids... usually that's terrible.

    It seems to me like its a gimmick for parents to make money off of their child's beauty.

    No offense, but it's free 'child pornography' for pedophiles. I don't like the idea of child pageants. Chelsea will not be in one period!

    I'm not offended. I don't agree that I was apart of one, and my mother would never bring me back.. LOL. It was a fun thing to do at the time, a rash decision with the family. Nothing serious

    For the most part I'm indifferent to them. On a personal level I find it really uninteresting and wouldn't really choose to push my kids in that direction. Looking at the bigger picture though and pretending that I do care I think if it is something the kids WANT to do then I think that's fine and good. I kind of look at it as a not well known sport I guess. For those kids who don't like it who are crying while being spray tanned and refusing to do who's parents are dragging them around and forcing them... I think that's shameful and I don't see it being beneficial at all to the child. A happy child who wants to though I can see how they might enjoy dressing up and it might help with their confidence and public demeanor.
