Parents, Kids and the Reality ShowsIt looks cute and innocent when a kid as young as 4-5 years old, try to show some action on the reality shows. All the emotions flow from the judges, parents and audiences. The sound of applause and some praising words follow from the judges.
However, my take on this is different. I would like to ask these parents that what they want to gain it? Do you want to make your face visible on TV or your's kid? You are throwing a kid into a world that they don't even know properly. True, different kid have different talent which must come in front of the world but for that one should be patient. We know, there is too much competition but that does not mean that one should keep their own dream on a 4 years old kid! This is nothing but call a child abuse. What does that baby know about it?
I am very much sure that we do not have less of talents in our kids but revelling them before their proper age can damage their confidence very badly. At 4-5 age they do not know the meaning of failure. Let them grow little mature, till then you grow their talent at home. Let them understand about failure and success. They should manage to hold them both. Give them mental strength and then throw them into the world of competition.
We talk about tolerance, but we can't even tolerate with our excitement to come in the TV's reality shows. This is the time when Parent can control on themselves for the betterment of their kid.
