Last night I accidentally saw part of a kids’ talent show on TV. The kid I saw sang like an angel, and I was enchanted—until he really got going and started over-reaching. I thought, “Kid, you’re ruining your voice.”
I wanted to tell the host of the show, “Use your powers for good! Tell the kid and his parents that if he keeps doing that, he’s going to get nodes!” Sure it’s cute when a kid puts out a lot of power, but the TV show isn’t doing him any favors by letting him sing wrong.
Here’s a thought—try having a reality show that helps kids develop their talent properly, instead of just exploiting them.
