She's still studying. And this has made my parents upset. Do you think i should encourage her or stop her? Deep down i feel a little bit excited too about the fame she can get.

I think every body should have their choice if she is mature enough.. If she manage it with study then its well and good.. But I think she should not join it in loss of study.. I guess you can think better about her.. this is all my view All the best do your best :)

My parents and i are afraid if she'd neglect her studies. And the important part is, she is considering to take her time off from attending classes.

I think wen a child grow up, he/ she should b left independent to choose their career. Today is d age wen children should b helped in chosing their career. If ur sis wants to opt for achoring then she should be appreciated. Ya she will be known to everybody if she achors any Tv reality show. i wish that u should convince ur parents for ur sis. Best of luck.

depending on what it is, i would say that it probably would be ok. If one of my friends or family wanted to do it, I probably would encourage it, except if it were Survival or one of those types, because i am a worry wart and would be concerned that something could happen, and then i never could forgive myself.

I have to say that it all depends on the type of show she wants to try out for and what previous episodes and series have shown. Some can be extremely cruel or they have producers that edit out huge chunks of footage to make certain members seem not as honest as they really are. If she knows what she is getting herself into then stay on her side but if it is something trashy, step in and tell her so.

Just make sure your sister understands that reality is the PRODUCERS reality. Her behavior in the situation on set is key. She will be portrayed the way the show thinks fit. If she is not a private person and does not mind having her life invaded - go for it! Maybe she should commit to finishing her studies no matter what.

i believe that you should stop her instead of encouraging her.. my first reason is because she is still a student.. she should pay all attention to her study.. there is nothing with popularity.. just nonsenses!! finish her study first and then she can make her own decision.. the 2nd reason is she made yor parent upset.. i believe that if your sister proceed to join reality show, she just selfish coz she is ignoring you parent..

Beeing part of a reality show can be both a great and a really bad experience. It all dependes on the type of show in question, and what kind of person you are. I know people that have done things they really regret on a reality show. For a while thay had a hard time dealing with it. If your sister is of age it's her own choice to participate or not. So I do not think you should stop her. Should you encourage her? I'd say if the show is a good one, She's a sensible person, and she knows the pros and cons, I don't see why not.

You don't say how old she is only that she is still studying. I say that if she is of legal age of consent and it doesn't interfer with her studies that she should go for it. We only live once and should take advantage of the opportunites in life when they are presented to us. Of course she should take in to consideration if the content of the show is something that would bring embarssement to the family and haunt her in later life.

Everyone will have whacky ideas like that, its natural lol. I think that she should go for it as long as it doesn't interfere with schooling. Its just another fun expierence that she will go through, I don't think its bad at all.

I think you should let her do whatever makes her happy. I don't see anything wrong in joining a reality show. Your parents should talk to her and just make her promise to finish her studies no matter what happens and no matter how long it would take her to.
