I wonder if anyone has researched the affect these "Pageants" have on these children? I am not sure they are healthy for the kids.

Sure have! It's not all about appearance, it's about speaking in front if people, self confidence, and most importantly community support, Just read the paper and you will see what all organizations these kids support.

Nourfb. I think these Mothers are living vicariously through their children. Parading these children in front of an audience to judge them cannot be healthy. I do not care what these children support, that is not an issue. It is pass ,fail for their tender minds. They give awards from everything from best tiara to best tied shoes. They have to make up some of these categories. The only folks that gain from this are the "Pageant Owners" and the retailers that sell the awards,banners and silly costumes that attempt to make a six year old look older.

Well that's my girl in that picture. And I can tell she wants to do this, not pushed by her mother. Every child that participates got a trophy as with many things these days. There was only runner ups a photogenic and a winner. There are no "owners" of this gadget. Just businesses who donate to put this on and gift for kids. My daughter has raised thousands for Relay for Life thru her platform and fundraisers? Cam you say the same?
