The role of movies as an educational medium has not been used effectively by the society. There are various movies that are not educational but play a major role in causing an impact on the adolescents and children who watch these movies.

The important role played by the movies to cause changes in the adolescents and children is mainly because of the movie stars. These children consider the actors as role models. Whatever the actors do in the movies, are tried out by the youngsters. This can lead to various behavioral problems in children.

The impact of movie stars on adolescents and children was seen after the death of a few children who tried to simulate the spider mans activities and fell to their death from high rise buildings.

There are various reasons for the high impact of movie stars on the kids of the adolescent age group. They are:

1. Searching for role models:
The age is such that these kids start searching for role models. They are always on the look out for people whom they will be able to follow. This makes them vulnerable to the movie stars who's life seem to have all that these children are searching for. This includes fame, popularity, riches and a host of other things. This makes the children start imagining themselves in the shoes of the movie star. Finally they are unable to discern the difference between the two groups and they start doing the actions of the movie stars.

2. Activities: The next most important reason for the high impact of movie stars on behavior of adolescents and children is the behavior of the movie stars. Most of the movie stars are portrayed as all conquering individuals. This is the actual aim of all human beings. The children who are young are not able to think rationally that the all conquering activities of movie stars are not for real. The other activities of the movie stars are those that satisfy a human being physically. This makes the children starting to desire those activities and finally indulge in those activities even though they may not be right. These include activities like indulging in sexual activities, alcoholism and smoking.

3. Parental neglect: Many children of the said age group on whom there is a high impact of the behavior of movie stars are those who do not have proper parental support. These may be children who have their parents separated or those with single parents. These children do not have proper guidance and this makes them vulnerable and they try to imitate the movie stars. This makes the children feel that they have a guide and look at the movie star as the parent that they do not have. This is another reason for high impact of movie stars on behavior of adolescents and children

These are the various reasons for the children to start imitating their favorite movie stars and start behaving like them. Proper guidance and also counseling will help to curb these activities before it can cause harm or injury to the child or those around the child.
