well i have seen many teenagers who fall in love easily then got dumped soon just want to ask why having girlfriend or boyfriend is now a days is like a fashion? Though teenagers are growing up but they are not mature enough to understand the meaning of relationship . But i think celebrities are responsible for this , getting pregnant at the age of 16 , showing love relation of teenage celebs is impacting the teenage viewers . Do you think your teenage child will not do the mistake the other making? how to stop this???? How to tell them the truth? Do answer as i really wanna know peoples opinion.

Hi. As a parent of five, I know one thing, children do not come with instruction manuals!(unfortunatly). We do our best. We nurture, love, instill good morals, spend time with them, encourage, send them on the right path, etc. Then, pray for the best outcome! As I said, I have five ages-2,14,15,16 and 19. They are all very unique. My two yr old is obviously young yet. My 19 yr old has graduated and is in a trade school,and of my three other teens,one is doing great in school,strait A's and does not get into any trouble ever. One is an average child with good grades,and my other has been going through a rebellious stage and has gotten in some trouble. All 3 have bee raised by me the same way. I think the celebs do have an influence on teens though and it is unfortunate that it isnt more of a "positive" one. My suggestion is to just do the best we can to inform our children of the right way to handle themselves in relationships and to be themselves,not follow others, ven celebrities because they are people to and they also make some bad decisions!

Hi there! I personally think that celebrities are not directly responsible for the romances that teenagers these days are having. Yes, they do have an influential power on almost everybody and their wrongdoings sometimes tend to be acceptable to the teenage mind. Responsibility is such a strong word. Knowing what they are capable of, celebrities should be responsible on the kind of impact they are doing but not to be blamed for relationship statuses and pregnancy on teenagers. Teens can already act on their own, know what is morally right and wrong, and be responsible for the consequences of their actions. They are also pressured by peers, so above everything else, it is the parents responsibility to instill those values in their children and be proud of it as they grow up.

I think kids falling in love easily has nothing to do with celebrities. Some kids are just like that, they will fall in love for anything that can breath. On the opposite some other kids can`t feel attracted easily by other person. It depends on the person`s personality. In my opinion people who fall very easily have just a weak personality and are seeking desperately for attention, but it`s just an opinion.

It is not only happening in celebrities but in real life also. Now a days teenagers are adventurous they want to try everything for curiosity. It is hard to blame the parents at all times because sometimes teenagers are very hardheaded and they won't listen to anyone. Now a days teenage pregnancies are very high and they are not ready to have children.

probably celebrity should partly take responsibility ,but mainly I think it depend on education from both school and parents .teenagers are easily influenced by the environment surrounding ,expecially at the internet age ,so they need the right guide

I think there is an influence to an extent, but most teenagers know the difference between what's right and what's wrong. I believe that most of the influencing and pressure comes from their peers. As a 19 year old I know that getting through my teen years wasn't easy. I dealt with more pressure from my peers/friends than I did with the media. I know how to ignore the media, and as much as I know how to ignore my peers, I still had to listen to them. Kids know how to say "No!" It's not a difficult concept. It's just a matter of whether or not you want to be strong enough to use the word.
