Good Enough Mother is having a bit of a disconnect.
You see while I want my kids to go to school, get a good education and a great job (so they can take care of me and their father in our old age) I sometimes wonder how to counter the messages they see on TV. You know – reality stars making millions of dollars for doing nothing except elevating bad behavior to an art form.
You see today it was revealed today that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, star of Jersey Shore, is on target to make five million dollars this year. Not one million, not two and a half million, FIVE MILLION dollars.
That’ll certainly buy a lot of hair gel and quarters for the laundromat but what sort of message is reality TV sending to our children?
