If you answered yes then what do you think your daughter would gain from being in a beauty pageant? If you answered no then why not?

No I would not. I'm about to have a daughter and the last thing I want to do is teach her that materialistic things (looks, clothes, make-up) are the most important things. My mom taught me that even if you buy your clothes from goodwill you are still the same amazing person you would be if you bought designer clothes. Yeah, I don't buy my clothes from goodwill now but I'm not worried about whether my clothes say Hollister or Aero on them like most girls. I hope my daughter will be the same way as myself.
I believe that beauty pageants show young girls that they need to do the same things as those girls to win in life. That they must be "beautiful, skinny, and sexy" to win. Also, I think putting make-up and all that on a toddler or little girl is just ridiculous. Little girls should be going to school, learning, and playing not showing off their looks to a bunch of people. Girls have their whole lives to be subconscious about those things, why start it so early in life?2
