I agree this show is nothing but parents trying to outdo one another, it's child abuse pure and simple and it should be banned. These kids want to be kids and parents need to back off. Nothing good except turning them into selfish, spoiled teens who probably will become anorexic or bulimic will come of this. After watching this show I felt sorry for these poor kids and very angry towards the parents and a tv station who makes money off total exploitation of these children.

It is a pedophile breeding ground. I have been unfortunate enough to catch it on TV a time or two. First off, a mom was giving her little girl coffee. But that was by far the least appalling thing she did.
Who on earth came up with this concept? Hey, lets take these cute little girls, put them in crazy costumes, so much make-up they should be doing glamor shots, give them fake teeth, nails and tans and teach them how to parade around on stage doing proactive dances...
The thing is, a pageant (which is what its supposed to be) for children wouldn't be so bad if the kids participating actually looked like CHILDREN. Instead of looking like the little girls they are, there made up to look like sexy showgirls and porcelain dolls.
The girls are being taught that they are judged on there looks and they cant be beautiful unless everything about them is FAKE. Its disturbing.

Not to mention, the money the parents spend on getting there kids ready to "perform", the cost of the costumes, entering the "pageant", etc. etc. etc., would be much better spent in a college fund.
