    I think it's disgusting! It teaches children that beauty is everything at such a young age, and those parents subject them to all kinds of tortures that children should never know about! If they would just have those kids up there with no make-up  and crazy hairdos it might not be so bad, but these children are being turned into a pedophile's dream on live television! It's so wrong!

    It's like a train-wreck I can't stop watching. I am not a regular watcher, but sometimes it comes on after something else I'm watching or I get stuck on it when I'm channel surfing. I've seen it once or twice and have to agree that it is disgusting. I also agree that it would be different if they weren't all dolled up to look like little adults, baring their stomachs and wiggling their butts. It's so disturbing! I did see one mother interviewed and she actually seemed very nice, and didn't seem like she dolled her daughter up quite as much: no spray tans, false teeth, or ridiculous false eyelashes! Her daughter accused her of stealing her money (she wanted to use it to buy toys) and the mother explained that she was putting it in a savings account for her to save for her future - which I think is a smart decision. But for the most part, they focus on the children who have been trained to be beauty queens and throw temper tantrums like they rule the world. You can tell that the parents are living through their children. I can tell you now that that will not be my child!

    It is just child abuse exploited by national television I wrote a hub about it about a week ago.  Sickening to say the least and parents should be ashamed of themselves for spending thousands of dollars on child abuse

    I get a good laugh at it. And then I feel bad. Some of the horrible mothers are Texans... The mothers are going to have spoiled brats for daughters and the daughters will have controlling mothers. A fantastic combination (entirely filled with sarcasm).

    I love children and how they respond to nurturing care. These children are all so beautiful and talented and adorable.  However, I wonder if all the attention and forced acting is ruining their childhood.  I don't believe the dancing motions they do are age appropriate and only invite older, less desireable habits to form their character. I would rather see children digging in sand piles, fingerpainting, doing gymnastics or playing a musical instrument at this age then performing in front of people who only encouage early adulthood.

    I think it's unfortunate that a parent puts a child through that, teaching them at such young age to give priority to something which should not be regarded as so important, the looks. Also, it takes children away from games and play, which is what they should be doing at that age. It could also be argued the reasons why a parent does that... But that is another problem altogether.

    Oh, gosh - I agree it's hard not to watch, but for all the wrong reasons. I feel like I'm watching a combination of a trashy reality and child-abuse fest. I honestly don't understand why the make-up, fake eyelashes, fake teeth and other trappings have escalated so much in recent years. Or maybe it was that way for a long while, but we weren't exposed to it.

    In the long run, the show probably does more harm than good - parents (mostly moms) who are publicity hungry for their little kids think the TV show portrays them in a positive way. So sad.

    I think it's absolutely ridiculous. Wrong messages for children that age in my opinion.

    Teaching the wrong message to children. Winning isn't everything. Only failure in life is not trying at all. Making those babies look older is just wrong in my opinion as well.

    It's disgusting, a form of child abuse in my opinion, I do not like it at all.
