The "Real" situation is that these folks are considered role models to many children.
Where does that leave society in the next few decades?
I realize that as parents we have to be responsible for what are children watch and do. My daughter does not watch Jersey Shore or anything of that
ilk, but she still knows every person on the show. From seeing it on the news and hearing about it from school she is aware of Snooki, Jwoww, etc.
These folks have hit the media circuit big time.
I must confess that I have watched it. It is sometimes a guilty pleasure. One in which I pray no one ever looks through my window and catches me

they still know about it. We can't lock them up, nor should we want to. We raise them the best we can, but outside influences tend to do just that at
