"Miley Cyrus reportedly got in trouble when she went out and bought a
crocodile Prada bag which averages $11,350. When Billy Ray and Leticia Cyrus
found out what Miley did, they were said to cut up all of her credit cards and
have changed her monthly allowance of $300. Although 15-year-old Miley has
become quite the star with her tour selling out, a successful CD, and a very
popular TV show Hannah Montana, but the Cyrus parents aim to raise her like a
regular kid and give her rules and limitations. She still gets grounded too when
she acts up."
This sounds silly, but it is an important thing to do. I wonder how much this would have changed the life of Britney Spears, if someone had taken the time and effort to tell her no. I think one of the biggest dangers for child stars, is that they start to think they are bigger than life. They begin to believe the hype, and think that they don't have to obey the same rules the rest of us do. Sadly, it turns out that the laws don't seem to be enforced in a way that challenges that belief. There are other consequences, that even stars have to pay for their actions though. Look at Spears and her life right now. Good job Billy Ray.
