Pageants... annnd GO!

I had a friend who's daughter was in a ton of pageants when she was younger.. I mean a ton. Anything that was going on within 500 miles, they were at. They missed school for them, they borrowed money to get to them, you name it.. Now most hopefully sane mothers wouldn't go that far. But her daughter has serious issues now. She's insanely overweight for her age and has serious social problems.

That could be a singled out case, sure, but I believe the pageants played a big role in it. I signed Charlie's picture up for this cute kid contest and I feel a tad guilty about it.

How do you feel about pageants?

    I don't have any problem with them as long as they don't go too far. Like anything else, too much of something isn't always a good thing... My mom did pageants when she was younger and loved them. She didn't do them with my sister and I though because there is a lot that goes into it, i.e. money, drama, etc. I'm sure it just comes down to the kid.

      Nope, not until she can make the decision to model or do pageants, when shes older, i'll support her.
