DID Judge Terence Lewis Says He Would Never Send His Kids To Reality TV Shows

Television reality shows have been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. A few days back, these shows made news when I&B had issued an advisory asking private TV channels to “desist from showing children in a vulgar, indecent, suggestive and inappropriate manner on dance reality shows.” They had said that the children, who are seen performing dance moves, imitate grown-up actors or performers and as such which are inappropriate for kids.

Recently, during a conversation with Bombay Times, Terence Lewis said that he feels that these show for kids have a negative impact on children and he wouldn’t send his kids to any of the reality show. He said, “Children are impressionable, and television is a cut-throat professional place. To put them on a pedestal for a couple of months and suddenly take it all away when a new show starts, leaves a void within them. If I had a kid, I wouldn’t want him/her to participate in a reality show. It pushes the kid to an extreme level of ambition and desire.”


Talking about the I&B ministry’s recent advisory asking channels to avoid suggestive and age-inappropriate moves for kids on such shows, he said, “Technically, they should be banned for kids on television, and parents should also regulate the same. Such dances make them precocious in a certain way that is premature, and robs them of their innocence. These kind of dances should be avoided, but having said that, a platform can be given to them for showcasing their talent.”
