Does having famous parents help (yes) or hurt (no) a child's development?

  • Famous Versus Paparazzi

    Being famous can certain hurt one's offspring's development. If their child is constantly being followed by the paparazzi and being photographed every time they are in the public, it could inhibit the child. It could either give them a feeling of being superior to their peers or a feeling of being under a microscope.

  • Like Father like Son.

    The famous parent are famous for some reason. They are famous because they have some qualities which are extraordinary. In most cases, famous parents are also very rich and have good resources. They can appoint best of teachers and tutors for their children. At times, famous parents are very busy with their careers but they can also devote fair time to their children. Having famous parents will help child's development in great deal.

  • Yes, you may be sabotaging your kid’s self esteem

    I’ve felt so vicariously oppressed by what some parent has said or done to their kid that I’ve actually gone over and said something. Not surprisingly, most have looked at me like WTF? Get away from us!

    What drives me crazy is that so much of what parents say and do to help their kids has the opposite effect. And then the kids suffer needlessly. When something is repeated over the life of a childhood, the impact is compounded and the damage difficult to undo.

  • A famous parent can give a child a great headstart in life.

    There are plenty of drawbacks to having a famous parent--lack of privacy, the illusion that the famous person's family and life belong to the world--but a child born to someone famous, with all the resources and trappings that usually go along with fame, can start life with benefits that many other less famous children have, such as access to prestigious schools, name recognition that opens doors, wealth and opportunity, etc. The child just needs to be lucky enough to have a support structure from his parents or guardians that will keep him or her on track, and not allow the child to fall victim to the many pitfalls of fame.
