Hannah Montana Photos, Vanessa Hudgens Photos, Chris Brown-Rihanna Assault Allegations… The List Goes On And On

In the past year, several prominent stars who are popular with teenagers and tweens have been mired in controversy.

Hannah Montana of “Miley Cyrus” fame has been photographed half-naked. She’s also been targeted in recent days for a photo
called racist against Asian-Americans.

Vanessa Hudgens of “High School Musical” fame  has also been involved in controversy, as a naked photo circulated the internet.

Actress Lindsay Lohan and singer Brittany Spears made headlines, and certainly not for the right reasons. Brittany’s teen sister, Jamie, got pregnant.

Now we have the allegations that singer Chris Brown beat his singer girlfriend, Rihanna. The list seems to go on and on.

So what’s a parent to do? Many are turning off or tuning out the shows or music that made these stars famous. Experts say talking to your teen or tweens is an important step, using the latest celebrity controversy as a teaching tool. In fact, experts say it can help you open the door to discussing life-changing issues, like drugs, alcohol, premarital sex and self-respect.

How do you help your kids handle these difficult issues? We hope you’ll comment and share your thoughts.

    People need to realize that actors,singers etc are still only human and they make mistakes also. Vanessa Hudgens is not the first girl to have sent nude pictures to her boyfriend and she will not be the last. Chris Brown is not the first to assualt his girlfriend. NO one will ever know all the details about the assault. I have seen situation where the woman pushed the man to attack them or vice versa. Not that its right but many young people dont know when to walk away from certain situations and many dont know how to hold there ground and say no when asked to take naughty pictures by there boyfriend/girlfriend. Its up to the adults they look up to to guide them and help them make better choices.
