What effect could all this have on the children?
“Protecting the children from further trauma should be the goal,” says child psychiatrist Mark Banschick, retired expert witness in child custody disputes and author of The Intelligent Divorce books. He called on the media to be careful.

“The No. 1 thing is to protect the innocence of children,” Banschick says. “They can be traumatized by something that happened but they can also be traumatized by the public humiliation that the family can experience by this exposure. The news media should really handle this in a way that respects the children….They deserve their privacy even if their parents are famous.”
