    Would you like to know who I am unsensiblepageantmom? If you guess correctly I will admit my identity, I swear on your little daughter's tiaras I will.

    Only if I lie and they turn to dust. Otherwise I am completely within my rights to tarnish the sanctity of her $10 Honk Kong investment.

    Okay, I'm really disturbed by that video. She's 2 for goodness sake. Who trains their 2 year old to do a dance like that? Well, who on earth dresses a 2 year old up like that.

    I've read every page of this thread - took nearly my entire work day as I had to actually work also. I'm completely disgusted by the pageant mothers who refuse to see what is so apparent in front of them. It's the same behavior as a drug addict who can't see that they have a problem. To spend tens of thousands of dollars on something so exploitative is appalling.

    Hint to sensiblepageantmom: download Firefox as a web browser, it has a built in spell check. It's quite obvious that you won't take the time to actually learn how to spell properly.

    Interesting paper here: My Research Paper

    It includes great quotes and statistics from a Harvard study on kids in pageants. But of course, the manateyys know better than some pesky Harvard people.

    In June of 2000, The Harvard University Gazette reported on a sociological study done by a Hilary Levey, an undergraduate student at Harvard University, which found that child beauty pageants clearly accommodate to the ambitions of the parent, not the children. Levey found that low-class families entered their daughters into pageants to teach them how to “compete in the real world.” The high-class mothers claimed that competition is “very healthy” and there is a lack of it in the educational system. Mothers simply want their child to be able to move up the social scale. With the competitiveness found in pageants the mothers believe their child will get the much needed “practice” to do so (Cromie 2-3). It has also been found that parental pressure can influence the correlation between pageant participation and psychological health (Wonderlich 292). Parents who make their children participate in pageants because of the skill that they obtain put more pressure on the child than on the children whose parents let them participate for their enjoyment. Many mothers believe their children will receive many skills by participating in pageants such as public speaking and listening skills, confidence, poise and talent (Wonderlich 298).

    Despite the fact that pageant mothers can always find a positive impact from their daughters’ participation in pageants, Anna Wonderlich, Diann Ackard and Judith Henderson found that there is a strong association between beauty pageant participation and mental health. Of the 131 beauty pageant contestants that they interviewed, “48.5% sought to be thinner, 57% confirmed that they were trying to, at the moment, lose weight, and 26% were thought to have an eating disorder” (Wonderlich 292). They also found that the women who participated in pageants in their childhood were more likely to already be or become dissatisfied with their bodies more than the subjects who had not participated in pageants. Their study also indicated that those women who were child pageant contestants “scored significantly higher on measures of body dissatisfaction, intrapersonal distrust, and impulse dysregulation” then the women who had not participated in pageants during their childhood (Wonderlich 297). This study is a great insight into what that pageant industry can ultimately do for children. This information is an essential part of what the pageant world can ultimately achieve when children under the appropriate age of maturity are participating. Considering this information it is easy to see that the children, who participate in pageants, are built up with so much self-esteem that in return they have esteem problems later in their life. In other words, these children believe they have to be perfect to be seen as beautiful.
