The disney channel generation and juno !

Okay, does art imitate life or does life imitate art?
Well, I have known a lot of kids who went onto to become doctors after having getting inspired by, yes , life does imitate art.
Also, yes, i have seen a lot of movies that are made from real life stories. So, yes, art imitates life too.
off late, I seem to observe that teenagers and youngsters are obsessed with celebrity and what not. NO real aims except trying to be cool . Their perception of cool seems to revolve around good clothes or the clothes that are deemed good on E news. I am pretty sure getting a great career or inventing something should also figure in being cool? No?
It is sad that a whole new generation of shallowness is being bred.
Disney channel is to blame.Of maybe inconsiderate apathetic parents complicate the issue further too.
For one, the common theme that pervades all teen tv series on disney is the prom and boyfriend.
They have series where teenagers as young as twelve are shown to be struggling with dating problems.Such tv shows potray to the impressionable mind that dating is something common and expected of early and preteens.
12-18 is not the time to go around fretting over dating problems.
Yes, this is the time to start learning about sexuality and such, that is not all .
It bothers me that by showing dating as normal for the 12-14 age group, the new breed of precocious preteens and early teens are being bred.Precociousness in terms of sexual experiences and such.
I mean, the pelvis is not fully grown or developed till the girls are atleast 18..So dontcha think it is abnormal to indulge in activities that may potentially lead to a pregnancy which might call for a strong and fully developed pelvis prior to the age of 18?
Yet, the teens are ending up watching disney channel and coming to the conclusion that getting pregnant at 14 is just so normal.
I mean, you are not financially independant till 21, not physically fully developed till atleast 18..So why do something that makes you an unfit parent prior to that?
Also, juno, this movie glorifies early teen pregnancy. It doesn't need to go right ahead and praise teen pregnancies. but then, by mere potrayal of such a thing where it is deemed as something common, teens take cue.
A group of teens in massachussetts promised to get pregnant together at some early teen age after watching this movie. And they chose street bums to father their children. gosh. seriously.
So I ask, does art imitate life or does life imitate art?
I think it is a bit of both.
By the way, all the disney stars themselves getting pregnant and having babies is just not helping either.
We can have better programs on disney . ya know. About science, careers, friendship, parent_teen_problems and such?
