I think they are awful when the young child is put under ridiculous pressure to please their parent that was never able to compete.

If you take a look at the kid before all the makeup, false eyelashes, false teeth, wig and all the rest - the end product looks nothing like the REAL kid so they should be banned - why have a beauty contest when all the beauty is faked. Also teaches the little kids to wiggle their butts and strut like little whores.
