Maybe you have an older child who wakes up two hours early before he or she actually have to go to school or work just to shower, put on make-up, pick out the perfect outfit for the day to ensure that they look “good” and of course check his or her phone to catch up on gossip they may have missed that night.  These are just some of the things that reality TV can teach a young mind.
