Is it absurd for minors to be idols?

Of course. You guys must know that they are kids not a tool to make money for parents or entertaiment companies.

Look at the 12-year-old 'mini Jack Ma', who uncannily resembles Chinese billinoare Jack Ma Yun. Now he returned village after extravagant life. Sponsored by a company that sought to profit from his sudden fame, mini Jack Ma enjoy short-lived fame, and now he still lived an impoverished life.

They are minors. They should enjoy school life not the complex life of the society. 

I think laws to protect minors should be imporved as the society have changed from many fields. Those who under 18 should be enjoy the school life.

I don't think this is a good trend. Youger one's should not be bothered by fame and money. It's a time for them to grow up safely.

The responsibility of youngers is to learn knowledge at school. Most importantly, they should know what is wrong and right. That is to say, being a good person is more important than others. Those days, lots of stars they committed a crime, which have a really bad influence on society.

Many young stars actually do not have a good future because the age requiring learning become a tool of money and fame.

Yep. I do believe that the quality of idols should be improved at present. It is known to us that we used to dream of being a scientist or other character that can benefit our society. However, with the reward of idols increasing nowadays, he who is a child now has changed his goal.

For kids, their main duty is studying hard and keeping childish. The youth is a important period that constructs their value system.

The kids need to know what is wrong and right. Otherwise, if they become idol and are exposed to the fame and money, that's harmful to their growth.

After all, they don't know how to control their desire and take responsibility for their behaviors.

Entertainment Companies are intended for adults. It's a sad that young children enter the circle whether they are performing or watching.
