Toddlers and Tiaras on TLC
How do you feel about toddlers competing in pageants?I'm against it
How do you feel about reality programs involving kids?I'm against it
This show should have never even been THOUGHT to be aired; the idea should have never even came up. This show and the whole affair of child pageants is absolutely DISGUSTING. And disgusting may even be a nice way of putting it. Shaving your child's legs, fake tans, fake lashes, fake teeth, fake hair, fake nails.
Notice something here? The children on these shows are no more real than a Barbie. Ugly parents living through their children, dressing them in swimsuits and ugly dresses, having them show more skin than a little girl should EVER show.
It's like a pedophile parade.
It's the most shameful display of human vanity I have ever seen. Children are children. They should be learning how to ride bikes, playing with their friends, having tea parties, watching Barney!
NOT slathering on makeup and then twisting and turning for judges. It teaches these children that unless you are pretty, you will never win.
I would NEVER do this to my children. If they wanted some spotlight, I'd let them try out for a school play. Yes, there is a little stage makeup and outfits in a school play, but plays are innocent and much better for self esteem than having your child prance around in a skirt for grown men.
TLC, PLEASE take this show off the air!!!
