It's an unspoken rule that celebrities are forced to deal with the annoyance of paparazzi and a lack of privacy... but do their kids have to deal with it too? Do you think celebrities' children should be off-limits to paparazzi... or are they fair game?

    The celebrities should be off limits too.
    just because a couple of people know who you are, shouldn't give them the right to invade your privacy.

    But, when celebrities use them as PR stunts from the moment they are conceived, it is fair game!

    What would life be without photos and articles about Suri - TomKats child? And, life is hardly worth living without seeing photos of Blue-Ivy - Jay Z's & Beyonce's angel.

    Those who were alive at the time Prince Harry and Prince (Williams) of England were children, understand how important it was to be aware of their lives immediately after their mother's tragic death.

    I don't think the children should be exploited, but the general-public wants & needs to be informed about them.

    The kids didn't choose to be famous; some of the paparazzi are completely out of control. And what the hell is wrong with the celebrity obsessed masses anyway?

    I'm in an AP Psych class, and we're currently studying Childhood and Development and what factors play into the raising of a human from conception to death. Being stalked by the paparazzi will most likely do irreparable damage to a child, especially if they are are thrust into the celeb culture at a very young age (2yrs+)

    How does taking pictures of them and sharing details of their lives affect them, negatively? Elaborate...

    Because they will grow up with the pressures of fame. They won't be able to go to the park without being followed, or be expected to have normal birthday parties with normal friends without tabloids and news channels clamoring to get a few pictures leaked.
    While adult stars have had time to develop normally as a child (most of the time) and can deal with the fame they have in adulthood, these children are RAISED by fame, and they don't know a life without it.
    They'll probably grow up insecure, self-conscious, wary, and with trust issues. These are very real problems. Child fame can do that.
    Now, I'm not saying that it absolutely WILL happen, but it's likely. And come on, no child deserves that.

    I can agree that a child doesn't deserve to be made insecure, self-conscious, etc..., but the parents play a major role in making sure the child stays grounded under all that publicity and pressure.

    For example, Jaden & Willow Smith - son and daughter of Will & Jada Pinkett Smith - seem to be growing into fine young adults. They are doing this despite being baptized in the public spotlight since they were old enough to talk.

    Yeah, that's true. Like I said, it doesn't happen to all of them, but if the parents are average or below that, it won't turn out pretty for the kids. In the Smith's case, they had good parents that knew who to deal with fame and therefore their children turned out fine.
    It all depends, I guess. I mean, Snooki's kid? That can't end well.

    Celebs who make their living performing in plays,movies, singing, TV should get to have their private lives private and their kids names and pictures should never be published unless they give wriiten consent, but the "celebs" who make their living by putting their entire lives on TV are fair game even when their not in front of their producton company because they chose to make their career based on their personal life.

    Absolutely. They are not famous yet, and the whole publicity thing is just out of control anyway. The press take the whole thing too far, it seems to be stalking and invasion of privacy.

    let them have their own identies, and grow up as normal kids. not always in the spotlight. it's unhealthy for them and their formation as teen, adults later.

    I agree about the media attention whores known as the Kardashians! Kim is saying that the kid won't be a part of the show,but I'll bet as soon as "Momager" Kris tells her to do it to boost their sagging ratings,the cameras will be in the delivery room!

    We should never set the precedent that anyone is a form of royalty, and that we should obey special rules or laws in their presence. I can only say that there is no reasonable expectation of privacy in public. If you are, then its perfectly legal for someone to take your picture.

    About the only method to prevent you childs picture from being taken that I can accept is a restraining order or other legal action against those that harass you, or in the event of reckless endangerment from the paparazzi, throw them in jail. However, the simple act of filming or taking pictures in public of any "special" group of people should never be illegal.
