Hollywood is not cut out for everyone and a lot of people believe that it is not a safe place for kids at all. Hollywood can be considered very dangerous with all of its lights, glamour, money, and allure. Due to the adult nature of the Hollywood industry, it makes sense for adults to be the only ones invested in it. The need for child stars in movies and TV shows, and the fact that celebrities have kids of their own to raise makes the notion of keeping kids out of Hollywood pretty much impossible.
Child stars sometimes go down tragic paths in their life that lead to substance use, eating disorders, getting arrested, and more. Kids who have famous parents are sometimes neglected and sometimes overly spoiled beyond any normal level. A sense of entitlement can easily take over the mind of a child who grows up in the Hollywood spotlight. If it were possible to do, would it be best to keep kids out of Hollywood entirely?
