What does it take to become a Disney star?

Why so many kids have come to expect fame, and what parents need to know about the sometimes treacherous world of searching for stardom.

What do kids learn from TV? A 2011 study by UCLA researchers looked back at the values imparted — the importance of community, for example, or financial success — by the most popular television shows among young viewers over four decades. Researchers analyzed the top two shows in each of five years and averaged the results to determine the rank of 16 different “values.” NOTE: The study stopped at 2007. Shake It Up is included in this list because it was the top-rated show in 2011 for children ages 9-14.
