toddlers and tiaras

maybe it's a crap show. maybe its premise is crap, maybe what you're teaching them is crap, maybe just the idea of putting kids through pageants is crap.

but there's still much to learn even from seven-, eight-year-old pageant kids -- no matter what major drama happens right before, when it comes the time to take the stage, you turn off the tap and put on your best show for your eager audience. maybe it's fake, maybe it's unhealthy, but i think anyone who can possess that level of self-control at that age is admirable.

barring any destructive behaviour/ideas they may pick up along the way, i think that just that one form of discipline in itself is a success-making factor.
