Well in accord actually -- keeping an of the Kardashians the Jersey Shore teen mom these reality shows that are very very popular especially with young teens.
But there's a new study out that shows that's -- from the -- that's resource research institute actually those shows have a negative effect.
On many of the teens and -- which is that 101112.
Year old range.
-- cast joins me -- to explain she is the author of bonding over beauty beauty of mother daughter going to self esteem.
A confidence and let's welcome safety at this kind of one of those dumb moments like oh.
I would've thought that it would have been pretty.
Obvious that these kinds of shows have a negative effect on young people right -- or is it not that obvious.
Yes well he shouldn't be in the -- after American survey it said that 75%.
Of girls believed these shows are real and unscripted and that's the biggest issues so we think he's sneaky falling down drunkenness street.
Flashing in the club then climbing into bed with another guy they think this is real and a lot -- can see things on TV -- think that it's okay.
Speaking to socially acceptable I truthfully there are consequences -- that kind of behavior now what.
The principal -- reviewers actually said and the chat because after Revis is allowing asked this question -- says.
Lindsay twenty -- that I don't think there's any such thing as reality TV the -- change the situation now.
I would believe that too but is there more going on -- reality TV -- the producers actually kind of like loosely describe what we wanna see here this is what you do.
What if you think I was at a party a year ago and -- I -- it turned out they were shooting her reality show they're still I want to stick.
And they have three different cameras and you see somebody starts to get into some deep space and starts to have some sort of controversy.
All the cameras can and and I think -- cast members know by now at -- more controversially you are if you start -- by eight.
If you see something inflammatory you're gonna get air time and when you get air time.
You become the start when you become a star that's when you make -- money so we've got a situation of reality TV is basically negative and forcing.
Police -- because remember everything that -- when you see something on television.
You believe this is socially acceptable this is the norm.
And I think we -- -- Foster self esteem in our daughters and tell them.
Who's drinking that they call partying -- Jersey Shore is not.
What you wanna be dealing because there are major repercussions of that kind of behavior what are being negative effects though on the teens and -- -- the Girl Scouts research institute actually found.
Well I think we're trying to see how corals were influenced by this did you think these kinds of things were OK and movie -- they were safe as is that these kids thought that -- was real and so they're saying that.
Girls tend to think that -- mind is more normal and how quite plain that is normal.
Bullying is okay because if you want to housewife shows.
This vote each other you -- very aggressive and I think the influence of these girls that that kind of behaviors OK and if you're one of these people that.
Don't confront people on the time -- -- you show that.
Are there inning though.
Positive things to come out of that I mean it out of watching that kind of thing well I teen mom it shows just how difficult it is to be eighteen months -- That means it isn't maybe the biggest loser.
It could inspire you to -- to go on a diet or lose weight or eat healthier so I think that's okay but even the biggest loser.
You think people having dramatic weight losses.
In a very short amount of time.
And behind the scenes.
They're doing much more than what you're seeing on TV guide and I'm sure there -- -- -- -- -- or whatever that their way and is better.
So I think what you also have to sit down when your daughter in Spain as.
Wouldn't she -- when Kim Kardashian and is on can't he see her going to bed and she didn't -- eighth of may not -- And -- it come on -- -- did that.
So yeah it is you have to -- -- you see somebody knock on the door that you see the door -- think there's two camera angles fill it with seeds so I think as he I think is you -- to sit down and lots Jersey Shore with your children.
And how man.
This kind of team is okay this is it an up here -- any stories I have an eleven year old son and a I was reading an article on spray -- -- company sent -- can -- can't.
I come home.
He -- his whole body if we can't put -- she is on hand -- jealous here because he wanted to look like Mike the situation on Jersey Shore.
A lot of cute it was funny I -- Not that this was cool because Jersey Shore is the most popular show on TV -- to him.
This was cool.
That's a really negative effect so I went and talked to about it -- you know the way he acts when he gets strong confessed to a club and he's very aggressive toward women.
And when they they leave me alone he doesn't.
That's not the way you.
I had reality show on kids who do study groups and try to do better in calculus the work and yeah I think is they don't play but yeah.
And so I know it's yeah I -- train wreck TV we all want to see the train -- -- I -- -- -- -- sometimes I don't -- reality TV -- myself.
And I want to let the other night and all these women were -- Most confident liposuction and I was.
If this really everybody's doing that I think we have to understand they're doing it for shock value to that we're seeing.
Just a small portion of what certain people are doing but I wouldn't see this is what's he -- -- on would you recommend parents not watch these shows them.
Well I think if your child is watching it I think it's very hard when your kids become -- -- To monitor what they're watching because a lot of kids have hand held phones would you consider anything -- What I recommend to Kerry is do you watch that show -- them when you see that behavior when -- -- well.
It's wrong and stumbling that you -- I would think that.
I didn't even lot of big moment.
One of the things about teen mom that I quit because I see these magazines in the story is that they have these magazines called teen mom and it basically glorified as their lines.
In a way that you don't want the -- -- because a lot of kids just want attention anyway and been negative or positive and one of the things that teen -- talked about.
Was that how many teenagers.
Aspire to be on the show because it made stars out of that the teen moms and I don't think there's a positive coming up.
I think that's one of the most disturbing trends about reality TV is that when they passed for these things there's a line around the block.
To get on the shell is because this is a huge moneymaker you don't need any education -- -- music much profanity is you want.
The worse you -- more attention again and unfortunately I think reality TVs here to -- and I think that is one of the most disturbing car accident.
That we don't want our overall going through such a difficult thing is becoming a teen mom just to get payments so it's another way that we have to talk in the paint.
This is not -- -- wanna get an education and have a great life and be a -- when you're ready to be a mom not because you think you're gonna get on TV.
Absolutely -- Katz author of bonding over beauty and mother daughter die to self esteem and confidence and trust.
Thank you very much for shedding some light on -- negative effects of the reality reality TV thank you so much thank you.
