You become a Celebrity, What about your kids?

If you became a celebrity, would you let your kids be photographed by the media? Do you think that when the celebrities on TV let their kids be photographed, it's interfering with their safety?

I think its beyond their safety, I think it's potentially interfering with their future being. Look at all the celebrities who were born child stars, like Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears. They all have obviously suffered serious trauma from being in the spotlight. Some turn out okay, but I think its safe to say that many childhood stars ultimately suffer emotional issues as a result of their early stardom. Of course, being only in pictures may not cause the trauma that being an actual star could, but I personally wouldn't chance it. I also wouldn't dare jeopardize my child's safety. I would definitely make it a point to keep my children away from the paparazzi and limelight. Though, I probably wouldn't want to be famous even if given the opportunity. I'd really dislike people following me around with cameras!
