You mean like being exploited all over National TV and on talk shows, with images being plastered over magazines and books, all over the Internet, loss of privacy for private family moments (these moments are way too many to list!), multiple blogs devoted to trashing them and/or praising them, watching their parents relationship go awful and experience them getting divorced in real life THEN having to read about it (along with their reactions) and having it preserved on DVD for memories, having an OCD mother and not allowed to ever get dirty, watching a favorite sibling get preferential treatment and another being shown always in a fowl mood with temper tantrums, having video evidence preserved for their memories of their mother slapping and degrading their dad for all to see, seeing both of their parents being accused of adultery in print and media and the stories spinning out of control, being uprooted from their old house to a gated mansion with huge lights mounted up for their show and the place being suited to a TV set with security and paparazzi hounding them/following them at every chance and giving them no privacy, having classmates/teachers know all about them and their early years and intimate life details, I hope more terrible things do not continue to happen either!
I was also drawn to the show due to the children and had some extra time to watch the episodes while taking care of an ill loved one, but I refuse to watch anymore, I have no interest in watching a family fall apart. Or hearing the stories that the parents keep telling, which range from we have been apart for two years or basically anything else. It is all so bizarre. I noticed something wasn't quite right awhile ago, but couldn't figure it out. I just feel so bad for those kids.
Private matters should be kept private, at least for the sake of their young children. Divorce is hard enough on any child.
Sure, the kids got a lot of extra "things". But kids don't need extra "things" as much as they need loving parents and a stable home.
