Hi ladies well me and mom keep arguing about this pageant stuff I keep telling her no but she says she is going to do it anyway but she can't w/o my permission I believe that show Toddlers and Taras has gone to her head..I need advice on how to tell my mom to just STOP
Meh...as long as its a natural pageant and your dd is having fun...let her, but as soon as it stops being fun..then I'd stop
Just my opinion :)
We'd dp the natural ones but even those cost money we don't have...if my mom was willing to pay for it...we'd prob do a couple just for fun
When my daughter saw T&T she asked me to be in pageants, too. I considered it. They have Hispanic ones where all the girls take a class together to learn modeling and dance and they all become friends. The end pageant is more of a recital.
I ended up putting her in cheer and she LOVES it. I'm very happy because it's really a sport. They still get to put on sparkly outfits and makeup and big bows to compete. She gets great exercise, is building friendships and learning teamwork.
One of my reservations about pageants was that it seems so competitive and I think girls have a hard enough time with all the cattiness and cliques as it is.
Lol..I havent decided yet
Tell her to give you the $3,000 and you'll buy a new dress and a big old crown for your daughter and let her prance through the mall. lol
How old is your daughter? Does your daughter want to do a pagent? If you're daughter is into it, it might not hurt to let her do one (assuming grandma doesn't go crazy).
However, you are the parent. If you are truly against it, and you think it will be emotionally bad for your daughter, then tell your mom that. Inform her that this is your daughter, you do not want errrr in pagents for this and that reason. You will not be changing your mind and she does not have your permission to enter your daughter herself.
I think by telling her just like you did here--JUST STOP! You're right that she can't do this without your permission. Let her be a kid, for heaven's sake! Girls grow up way too quickly these days as it is.
