Why parents shouldn’t encourage their child to become famous movie or television star
I strongly believe that parents shouldn’t encourage their young children to become famous movie or television star because in this case children don’t have normal childhood and it is hard to handle public life. Childhood is the most important period of a person’s life. It is the time when child development of human beings. Parents play a significant role during this period.
Frist, parents shouldn’t encourage their young children to become famous movie or television star because to be a public person in young age can destroyed normal childhood. To be famous is not to everyone child. Usually, parents decide to accomplish their young children to be famous. But not all parents are good enough to take responsibility for the child future life. Former child star, Corey Feldman tells in the interview with Britain’s Metro.co.uk, “It wasn’t the industry’s fault, it was my parents. They should have been more responsible and laid the groundwork for me to build a healthy adult life.” (Britain’s Metro online, the article “Corey Feldman: I was exploited and became a joke“).
The actor had problems with being the public person at such young age and was struggled to fight with drugs problems. Another example is good known cute child star, Lindsay Lohan. For the couple last year, her wild lifestyle made her bad looking personality. She was struggled with drugs and alcohol too. (Biography online, Lindsay Lohan).
The poem, Little Boy Crying, written by Mervyn Morris is mainly about father and sons relationship. Poet shows the two main themes through this relationship; fathers love towards his child and his effort to lead his child into a right world in life. Mervyn Morris explores the child and parents relationship by using second person narration and language techniques such as allusion and emotive words. ...
Mental health counselor, Matthew Martin, said that an individual’s wild lifestyle can mean seeking for help to distract themselves what they are missing in them life. (Total Life Counseling online, the article “Lindsay Lohan. 3 Tips to Discuss Negative Celebrity Influence on Your Child”.)
Second, parents shouldn’t encourage their child to become famous because they will not have their private live as they grow up. Most children these days are spending a lot of time in front of TV. Children love their heroes and would like to be one of them. It is very hard for child star to be a good example for other children. Even when their heroes become young adults, people want to know more about them. Famous people are more often watched and are more criticized trough a microscope than not famous people. The Disney TV series Hannah Montana, the sweetheart actress, Miley Cyrus was big hero for children. As she became young adult, she changed to a provocative, vulgar young lady. Most parents are indignant seeing this example for their children because this is not the right model for teenager audience. Furthermore, most of the world was following Lindsey’s Lohan’s life. Ph. D. Goal Auzeen Saedi, said that he felt that the actress had a sense of empathy and compassion, through the interview with Oprah, after four days out of rehab. (Psychology Today online, Goal Auzeen Saedi, Ph.D., August 19, 2013, Has Lindsay Lohan’s “Next Chapter” Truly Begun? /Four days out of rehab, Lohan sat down with Oprah for an exclusive interview.)
I believe that parents shouldn’t encourage their children it is good examples for these young celebrities to see how your child’s life can go upside down. Small children are little things who need parent’s love, good parenting, support and proper activity for children. I can strongly agree with the opinion expressed in the media: “According to a New York Post article, Mr. Feldman is quoted as saying, “What would I say to parents of children in the industry?” he writes. “My only advice, honestly, is to get these kids out of Hollywood and let them lead normal lives.“ (Psychology Today online, Martina M. Cartwright, Ph.D., R.D. in Food For Thought).
My online life (must read) “Yes I am busy let me do my own stuff; please don’t interfere in my work. I have my own life. Yes! It’s my online life.” This is a common line parents listen from there melodious children when they try to disturb them while they are surfing any social networking site. Generally, every social networking site has same elements and features which are highly addictive and ...
Parents should establish the appropriate important role of childhood in their child’s life.
