War Of The Reality TV Moms: Toddlers & Tiaras Vs. Dance Moms

I’m obsessed with watching bad parenting unfold on television. It’s like watching someone else’s future therapy bills just pile up on the screen. The more horrible the parents’ grammar when they’re yelling at their children, the more I want to record the show in my head so I can play it back in my brain forever.

I know I’m sick and I know that watching the Dance Moms season finale and Dance Moms: Miami series premiere tonight is not the cure, nor is throwing a bring-your-own-flippers viewing party for the Toddlers & Tiaras premiere tomorrow. But what’s a troubled blogger supposed to do besides revel in the absolute madness that is horribly reality TV moms.

Rather than trying to break my addiction to watching small children sacrifice their future self-esteem for their moms’ 15 minutes of fame, I thought it would be more productive to break down which show features the worst parents: Dance Moms or Toddlers & Tiaras. It’s an ongoing debate in the Internet world as to which show features the worse parents and it’s almost as perplexing as the thought process that must go into the Toddlers & Tiaras parents figuring out the most confusing way to spell their childrens’ names.

On one hand you have forums like this one that say Toddlers & Tiaras  is worse, but only slightly worse. Then on the other hand you have the Toddlers & Tiaras moms going on Anderson Cooper‘s show and saying that Dance Moms make them look good.

How’s a level-headed person who wants to know which moms to hate more supposed to do? Let’s take a look at both shows and figure out which features the most amount of moms with the least amount of parenting skills.

      Such a hard decision! But I think the Dance Moms are worse because they complain so much and storm out and promise to never come back…but always come back. I always get so excited that they’ve come to their senses..then they don’t. Like Holly, sigh.

      I have to go with T&T…slutting a toddler up is inexcusable.

      OK. Dance moms is actually not degrading at ALL! maybe the moms can stop yelling a little but they NEVER yell at their kids. they dont force their kids to do anything that they dont want to do. And also, the girls have raw TALENT, and work so hard to get to the level of dance that their at. On the other hand, in toddlers and tiaras, they put spray tans, and everything fake on their daughters. and if the daughters dont do what they’re told , they get punished. SO TODDLERS AND TIARAS IS VERY DEGRADING AND DANCE MOMS IS NOT.
