Child Star Syndrome

When young children rocket themselves to stardom because of a couple successful movies, they are virtually always in the limelight. Some of them may achieve successful careers into adulthood, but others develop issues ranging from drug addiction to mental disorders as they grow up.

Child Star Syndrome is also known as the Curse of the Child Star. The syndrome describes the pitfalls of these juvenile actors and, unfortunately, there are many examples of troubled lives resulting from the stressful environment and constant scrutiny to which child stars are subjected.
Because every breath they take is viewed as news by the paparazzi, these children and young adults may get the impression that they are special and parental influence will diminish, unleashing a young person into a world almost devoid of discipline and direction, at a time when they may need it most.

No specific examples of fallen stars will be given here.
