First, I should say...I ask this question from the stand point of being more of a Beauty Contest?

Do you think they're fixed? What do you think of them in general?

I'll be honest in my response...

I think they are the worst idea... LOL

If you're a winner, then you suffer with pride...which is no good for your mental state...

If you lose, you're in awe because no one is cuter than your baby! LOL And how could anyone disagree!? 

What do you all think?? I suppose they could be fun if you don't have any expectations....but does anyone enter them without having an expectation?

Idk, I think beauty contests in general are very arbitrary. It's fun to watch, though -- pointless, but fun to watch.

I haven't really considered this because I've never been interest. Anything in moderation, right?

I say if you enter them, just do it for fun and have no expectations. Your kid will always be the cutest in your eyes and it's probably fine to do this until they're old enough to know they are "competing" i think

Although a lot of people have different views on this, I think they are okay up until a certain age. When the babies emotionally don't get attached to the competition they are fine. As they grow older the loss or win of the pagent might be

I used to think these were ok, but now that I am having my firs child at 37 years old I have a very different view.

My cousins did beauty pageants all growing up... Personally I can't stand them. I think it does create an unhealthy sense of competition (vs healthy, when you are using a learned skill). I know all the rhetoric about pageants being about poise and confidence and scholarships or whatever... But everybody knows that no matter how talented one girl might be, the prettiest is going to win. We have way more than enough of that type of comparison in our world to contend with already!!

Never liked the idea and I don't think they should even be that many baby/family photos on FB or social media too.

I think they can be a bit silly. What is the point?  Even if the focus and goal is for your child to continue with modeling and that sort of thing, it's silly because they are not aware.  I don't know, never really thought about what it truly means before, but I know when I have seen these contests come up, I haven't jumped at the chance (for my own child).

I don't agree with pageants of any sort. It instills the wrong image of someone is better than you / or you are better than someone else. I think its very harmful to the participants.

I think they're silly lol everyone loves their child but having adults vote for whose baby is cutest is just asking for trouble haha

I think it is all in good fun and shouldn't be take too seriously. Everyone is going to be biased towards their child and want to win, but if you don't win that doesn't mean your child isn't cute/pretty etc lol

i think it can be harmless as long as they are not taken seriously.

I don’t like baby contest at all. My opinion is, no little girl should be dressed like that.

Stay away from them, because they are dressing up little girls and bad people could be at the shows. I cannot understand why they dress up kids like this.

Donna posted this 20 December 2018

They are fun to enjoy but only do them if you are ultimately doing it for fun. Don't get sucked into the pagent world and they will try to recruit you

I think they are a bad idea. It is scary putting your little one up there on display. I really don’t think it’s cool to be putting makeup or dressing little girls like grown women either.  Not in the world we live in today.

I think it is harmless as long as the moms don't get too wrapped up in it! Often it is done for a free photo canvas or something

I think  that they cause a childs stress level to be high and are not good for them.

The ones I have an issue with those beauty pageant shows, like Haylee described.  I feel they are horrible to the mental state of the child.  I know its a tv show and many parts is very well exaggerated and dramatized but putting a child through all that is traumatizing.  I can't even image the child.  It's crazy to me. But then again, to each it's own.

I don’t think they’re harmful as long as you are doing them for fun!
