Lately in the media there have been pregnancies, births, surrogate’s, and new parents.  Due to this, celebrities social media pages have gotten more views, meaning more money off of their children. It is clear that this feeds into their addictions, and into their egos.

Celebrities have been using their children since the beginning of media for praise. Examples like The Jackson Five, the Kardashian-West children, and most recently, Kylie Jenner’s new born baby. These are only some of the many children who are or have been exploited for their parent or guardians gain.

“I don’t think it is right. I would want to make my own choices. If I knew my parents were using me in that way, I wouldn’t want to be in the media spotlight for their gain. I would want to earn what I have, not have it handed to me,” said Annie Bunker, a senior at Hillcrest High School.

When asked about their thoughts on Children being exploited Aspen Lopez, a junior at Hillcrest High says; “Honestly? I think it’s wrong. 100% wrong. No one wants to be used, what makes the children of celebrities any different?”

The parents of  children using them as media booster is disgusting. Children should not be used for their parents gain. They should be treated as children not as a marketing tool for kids clothes.

With Kylie Jenner’s new baby girl the ratings for the family show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ have only gone up. Is it best for a child to be raised in a place where sure they are loved, but they also are being used?
