Being the father of a 13 year old and a 3 year old, I get to watch a lot of children’s television. I’ve come to realize that not all of it is cartoons; there are quite a few live action types of shows that place early-teens and pre-teens in the spot light. These teens have become big stars in the early years of their lives. Some have embraced the responsibility and have turned into adult stars, like Shai Labeouf. While others like Jamie Lynn Spears promote teenage sex and pregnancy.
It must be hard to be that young and have a world watching your every move and criticizing every decision you make? It makes me wonder…
How do they do it?
Who helps them make the correct decisions?
Who helps them make the incorrect decisions?
How do they combine their TV life and private life and make it work?
What would they do if they were ravaged by a large hamster?
Some say I ask too many questions.
