"The main reason that I can’t be amused by Toddlers and Tiaras, is that while I agree that the majority of the families they show are train wrecks (or rather are edited to look as train wrecky as possible), all I see are mothers desperate for their little girls to do better than they did, reach further, go higher. Whether they consciously know it or not. Some of those women may well be living vicariously through those little girls, but part and parcel of that is wanting their little girls to succeed where they didn’t or couldn’t. To me there is nothing funny about people doing everything they possibly can to see their children reach a better life. If the methods are flawed as hell, that’s because they’re working with the tools they know."
