Explaining Celebrity Mistakes to Kids

Celebrity crushes are a normal part of childhood.

Hero-worship is common in any time period for kids, and often adults. Watching people who seem larger than life, who accomplish what we dream of, who seem to be charmed is natural and exciting.

Celebrities make mistakes.

So what do we do when our child idolizes someone who trips up badly? When drug problems leak into the news, when bad behavior gets really out of hand? We can’t make our kids stop liking these stars, so how do we talk about these choices in ways our kids can hear?

Parenting can actually be easier after these mistakes!

Watch this segment on The Daily Buzz and find out why you will be saddened, but a little grateful, the next time one of your kid’s heroes falls.
