Plus, there are plenty of 15 year olds who have had the same experience and come out NOT spoiled and troublemakers. We hear about the ones who get arrested and things like that. But there are a lot of celebrities who were child stars and are now great adults.
Like who? Not being snarky, just curious, because everything I've read and heard seems to indicate the opposite. And part of me wonders if it's a mistake for parents to let their kids become household names at the age of 10. Your kid becomes subject to forces you can no longer control. Would a "good" parent let this happen?
Off the top of my head, the only one I can think of who's old enough to count is Jodie Foster. I'm sure I'm forgetting some, but obviously she had some kind of solid support system going on.
But I can think of a lot more who didn't or haven't. Tatum O'Neil, Lohan, Corey Haim, Michael Jackson, Amanda Bynes, Macauley Culkin (not sure yet) etc etc. Beiber should probably be on that list, too.
