6 Ways To Handle The Media & Your Children

By: Stan Popovich

Many celebrities and entertainers have a difficult time protecting their children from the media. Here are a few suggestions on how to deal with the media when it pertains to your children.
 
1. Talk To Your Children
Always talk to your children about your current situation regarding the attention you get from the media. It is best to be up front with your children about why they are always in the spot light and why their friends are not. Educating your children on this topic is very important.
 
2. Develop A Plan With Your Spouse
It is always important for  both parents to be on the same page on how they will deal with the media when it comes to their children. It doesn’t help if one parent does one thing and the other parent does another.  Both parents need to come up with some kind of strategy on how they will deal with the media regarding their children.

3. Be Firm And Stand Your Ground
Once you develop some kind of plan, the next step is to carry it out and to stand your ground. Be consistent on whatever you decide. If the media sees that you are not serious  or they see you constantly doing something different, nobody will take you seriously. If the media knows where you stand when it comes to your children, a lot of them will understand.
 
4. Watch What You Say In Front Of The Cameras
Be careful on what you say when you are in public. The less you say about your children the better.  The media and your fans will be eager to jump on anything that raises any question marks. Play it safe and don’t say anything that raises questions.
 
5. Expect the Unexpected
There will always be members of the media who will do whatever it takes to get a story. Be prepared and don’t assume anything. If you can beat those members of the media  to the punch early enough, you can prevent a lot of things from happening when it comes to your children.
 
6. Learn From Others
Learn from what other celebrities on how they handled their situation. This will help you come up with different strategies on how to protect your children from the media.  It doesn’t hurt to talk to a professional who can give you additional advice.
 
Remember that all you can do is to do your best each day, hope for the best, and take things in stride. Proper planning and using commonsense can go a long way in preventing a lot of problems when it comes to the media and your children.
