I have never been a fan of exposing kids too early. I mean don’t get me wrong if ur child is a talented actor, singer etc you can harness that early of course but not in this case. This boy is not enjoying the full benefits of a complete parentage and chances are that he may never do. You are embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with your estranged husband and all you could think of is to use your barely 2-year-old son for a reality show? Come on!
Well, i’m old school and I know some of you ‘ll say its all about the money.
