Offspring Exploitation

I'm sitting here watching the Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Episode and they keep bringing up the kids.  This whole situation beyond pisses me off.  These kids didn't sign up for this and I think its ignorant to think that they can comprehend and know any better.  If mommy says, "It'll be fun, you'll be on TV" and you're a 10 year old, it sounds convincing.  But what's that 10 year old going to do when it backlashes?

The same goes for things like blogging and facebooking and such for your babies.  Think about how embarrassed you are/were when your baby pics get shown off.  Because we as a society have started adjusted to this self-promotion and public life, will it cross over naturally to our children?  Do you think it will be natural for them to be so out there?  I am interested to see what these kids think later on.
