Just now one news channel is talking about celebrity influence on children especially teens .. they are focusing more on smoking in films and trying to get opinion from teens about the influence .

 

What do you think it does affect or a better parenting would make them strong for not affected by negative influences like this ..

(I dont' remember  if it has been discussed or not )

when parents fail to imbibe virtues and also to provide good role models, celebrities become influencial. Smile   I could not be inspired by celebrities who smoked, who drank beyond limits and who drove car over poor people sleeping at the curb Dead
Goodness in celebrities is something one can appreciate and try to follow.
(Oprah, Shabana & many others)- not because they're celebrity, but becos they're good role models.

 Teens have always wanted to do things- bad things that they see adults do around them. Good parenting and family values must be imbibed in them much before they become teenagers.

thir was a time when I thought only bad peopel play billiards LOL not sure if any one remembers but in old movies villians playing billiards and hitting the ball with a command of killing and smoking was their style. When my eldest sister's husband was reffered as a billiard champion ( I think I was still in elementary...cannot remember)I was too scared to go near him for long time LOL

Yes movies and celebrities do effect them and it is the role of parents that can show them the correct way out of it.

LOL..  while heroes danced around trees and sang songs?

I thought that's how kids were born and curiously asked my folks when they found time to do all that singing and dancing, since they looked too busy for that EmbarrassedOuch!  speak of what celebrities are asked to do..
