Disney Stars: Where Should The Guidance Come From

Tweens and teenagers are impressionable flibbertigibbets. They lack the experience, perspective, and good judgment that can really only come with age. Throw money and fame into the mix, and the results can be less than desirable. Young Disney stars find themselves in just such a situation.

These young people, mostly female, have access to anything they could possibly want: expensive clothes, millions of fans, instant friends, decreased parental supervision, other celebrities, and parties. We've seen, though, that this kind of power isn't always a good thing. Similar circumstances led ...

Today's Child Stars Struggle To Become Serious Entertainers

Cole and Dylan Sprouse
We saw it with Drew Barrymore and then again years later with Lindsay Lohan and most recently with Mary-Kate Olsen. Current "It" stars like the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus will undoubtedly follow suit in the next few years.

They are child stars that want to turn into more serious entertainers as they get older, hoping the fans that are also growing up will follow them into more adult ventures. They take on roles they perceive as "serious" or "artsy," they change their look to try to separate themselves from their younger image, and they often take behind-the-scenes hybrid titles...

Point/Counterpoint: Should Jamie Lynn Spears Keep Her Baby Or Give It Up For Adoption?

1/14/2008 1:36pm EST
Jamie-Lynn Spears
The Spears Family Isn't Exactly Stable

Think back to when you were 16 years old. Most of us were sophomores or juniors in high school. We went to dances, parties, the movies and football games. We were still kids. Jamie-Lynn Spears lost that chance at still being a kid the moment she found out she was pregnant. But she has a chance to be a kid again, if she puts her baby up for adoption.

Jamie-Lynn is only 16, and although most teenagers like to think that they're adults, they're really still kids. It's safe to say that this is an unplanned pregnancy. Jamie-Lynn is not 100 percen...

What's Next For Jamie-Lynn Spears?

1/7/2008 11:07am EST
When it was reported that a Spears sister was pregnant, no one expected to hear that Jamie-Lynn, 16, was the mom-to-be. With the negative stories about Britney's parenting skills often making headlines, the future of Jamie-Lynn and her unborn child may not go the same route.

From personal experiences, younger siblings are often able to avoid the mistakes of their older siblings by witnessing the consequences of such outlandish experiences and mishaps.

Jamie-Lynn will probably not endure several stints in rehab or shave her head. Jamie-Lynn will likely keep her bad personal expe...

On Film And In Real Life, 2 Pregnant 16-Year-Olds Spark Moral Debate

12/21/2007 10:14am EST
NEW YORK (AP) - In the new hit movie ''Juno'' and now in real life with Jamie Lynn Spears, 16-year-old girls get pregnant and decide to bear the child rather than opt for abortion. For social conservatives, it's a challenging story line - they condemn the teen sex but hail the ensuing choice.

''It's a double-edged sword in the Christian community,'' said Bill Maier, a vice president of the conservative ministry Focus on the Family.

''We should commend girls like Jamie Lynn Spears for making a courageous decision to have the baby. On the other hand, there's nothing glamorous or fun...
