If your child was a teen star...Would you advertise that fact for attention?

I have seen a woman here who is the step mom to a famous teen singer, she created a profile with his last name and has posted pics of him with her and the rest of the family. There are MANY posts on her chatter box asking if she is indeed, the child star's mom.
Now I know that that is her last name now and she has every right to post whatever she wants, but WOULD YOU do the same? Or would you keep it more on the downlow, to maintain his privacy?

  • I would not say anything.
    I guess I do not want or need that kind of attention.

  • I wouldn't hide the fact that I was proud of my child but it really depends on how famous the person is and what that person wants. I guess it depends on how old the child is. You stated that the child is a teen, is that a young teen or older? Personally I would ask my child if they wanted it to be kept quiet or whatever, then I would respect their wishes.

  • I don't know what I would do until I was in that situation. However, I know I post a lot of pics of facebook and stuff of my children at their soccer games and at dance and gymnastics. I am very proud of them and of course I think they are the best kids ever. If they were really famous I don't know that I would stop doing that.
