    Admittedly the show focuses on the psycho-crazy moms, but I don't see a lot of children on that show getting much "choice" in their clothes, hair, or makeup. IMHO dressing up for kids is fun when it's a creative activity for them, not when an adult is forcing them to dress up a certain way.

    I remember that child and her mother. The kid hated being glitzed up, but once she was onstage, she performed her socks off. She has real talent, and it was clear that she truly enjoyed performing.

    I don't watch the show but I do see the occasional outtakes on The Soup....including the tot who danced around in a cone bra like Madonna. Um....wow. That's disturbing.

    Looking at the article linked....I do have to adore the fact that two of the tots mentioned seem to be named after characters on Dynasty (Sammy Jo Carrington, played by Heather Locklear, and of course, Alexis Carrington, played by the awesome Joan Collins. I assume there are also tots in these competitions named Krystle, but probably spelled with more "y"s and possibly apostrophes and a silent 4. "Kr4yy'styllye")
