Default Little Kids In Talent Shows

What's your position on them? Like them or not?

Me personally I can't stand them they have no talent and make it for being cute and sometimes they're not even cute

Figured I'd chime in on this one. I think kids talent show are alright like in their schools or if they really have good talent maybe be on AGT but what I HATE are the exploitation of children in beauty pageants. Dressing up your 5 y/o in hooker wear & smear make-up on her is flat out ridiculous. I'm pretty sure if it wasn't for any talent shows then there would be no children TV stars, am I right?

BTW I do have kids just in case that's your business!

When I was younger I'd be in agreement with you, but I guess with age comes tolerance . I don't mind children in talent shows. The only time I really don't like children is when they're singing. Few children ever have good voices and at times it gets downright painful to listen to.

But other than that I have no real problem with kids in talent shows. Let them have their fun. What matters is that they are enjoying themselves. And that they're only on for a minute and a half .

It doesn't bother me. I used to be the case manager for summer therapeutic programs for children with mental health issues and/or Autism. We always ended every year with a talent show. For some of these kids, it was the highlight of their summer. Also, some of them didn't have the most encouraging parents (more on the Mental health side for some reason) so we really tried to pick them up and support them.

Definetly agree with this. However it does teach them that life isnt perfect and that there will always be someone criticizing you for something

I voted that I hate them because its a form of parents living out fantasies through their kids

If you can't find someone better than me for that, then you don't have enough friends and family.
