Con: Children born into fame, wealth suffer in society

With society’s standards and the media’s constant coverage, children who are born into fame face adversity with the public. The solution is to keep the children’s lives private.

While being watched by the world, children with famous parents suffer to conform to society.
Numerous kids who have grown up in the spotlight have experienced different conditions compared to non-famous children.
Growing up is a pivotal part of life.
Whether you spend your childhood playing at a park or building sandcastles, it is clear that standard childhoods do not consist of attending award shows and being published on social media for millions of people to see.
According to Vanity Fair, singer Beyoncé and rapper Jay Z attended the C. F. D. A. awards in June of 2016 along with their daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
Even just after coming to an event with her parents, several articles were written about Carter who was only 5 years old at the time.
This type of scenario is crucial evidence as to why children being born into fame is negative.
I wonder, did innocent little Blue Ivy want to be photographed and presented down a red carpet?
Maybe she did, but maybe she yearns for a normal childhood.
Kids like Blue Ivy are pretty much forced to conform to society’s standards, and those change every day.
Imagine learning and growing every day, and also having to be aware of what you say and do.
These children endure negative effects in the future. Like normal kids, famous kids tend to rebel.
However, when the media is monitoring the famous kids, many people find out and rumors circulate through the public.
These situations can be truly scarring to children and there are many examples, such as singer Miley Cyrus.
Though Cyrus has maintained her fame, she went through a period of time when she had a negative reputation due to her breaking out of society’s box.
Miley Cyrus is the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus, who is a famous country singer.
Having been the star of a Disney TV show in her early teen years, and performing for the world, it is no surprise that Cyrus went through tough times.
In 2013, Cyrus released her album “Bangerz” which included a music video that many people found troubling. This damaged Cyrus’ reputation as the public viewed her actions as immensely inappropriate.
Similarly, actress Drew Barrymore was born into a family of extremely famous actors.
Barrymore made her debut as an actress at the age of four, playing Margaret Jessup in the film “Altered States.” Several years later, she began to struggle with drug addiction.
Barrymore has spoken about her childhood in the spotlight.
“One day I was a little girl, and the next day I was being mobbed by people who wanted me to sign my autograph or pose for pictures or who just wanted to touch me,“ Barrymore said.
According to, Barrymore describes being born into fame as a “recipe for disaster.”
Some celebrity parents have decided to keep their kids’ lives private.
For instance, singer Adele has a 7 year old son, Angelo Adkins, whose life remains out of the public’s view.
According to “She takes him to the park or on a hike and to birthday parties for his friends. It’s clear that she tries to create a happy and normal childhood for Angelo.”
Children who grow up without famous parents have real life experiences that aren’t blown out of proportion.
Kylie Jenner’s 1-year-old daughter, Stormi, received a small house and diamonds for Christmas.
According to Jenner, she grew up receiving similar gifts.
“I used to have a house like this when I was Stormi’s age,” Jenner said.
It is understandable that a person with a lot of wealth would purchase extravagant presents like this.
However, other children do not get to have this experience.
Stormi’s world will turn out to be vastly different from children with non-famous parents.
Children who are born into the spotlight suffer tremendously as they are expected to conform to society’s expectations and are denied of a normal childhood.
Famous parents should consider keeping their kid’s lives private and out of the public’s view.
