i was put into them as a child. and although i'm not a fan of Honey Boo Boo, i think if you stay grounded and you keep your kid grounded, the whole experience can be an amazing one. people are so gung-ho about 'i want that crown, trophy, MONEY' that when they lose, they never actually learn to lose gracefully. and the moms make it much much worse.

i loved being able to dress up and have my hair done. and if i won, i won, if i didn't, yes i was upset that i didn't get a crown, but i learned to be happy for those that did win. if i had a daughter would i do it to her? most likely not. its a great program to save money for college and can build confidence, but i think the parents have turned it into this out-for-blood competition.
