Drinking scenes in some episodes sends wrong message

Parents should be aware that the drinking is not always just a casual thing at the bar. These young adults are shown having body shots off of each other in at least 1 episode from year 1 and 1 episode from year 2. Having only a naive 10 year old not sure what age would be appropriate but sorry 12 is too young to send the message that because you work so hard towards your dreams it is OK to behave and cut loose like this even if it's only once in a while. Sends the wrong message.

breaking pointe

path? Tweens: What do you expect from your role models? How are you inspired by their example or advice? Have you ever been disappointed in the actions of someone you admired? How does that change your opinion of him/her and your desire to follow in his/her footsteps? How does Breaking Pointe stack up to other reality shows you've seen? Do you think this marks a movement away from the controversial side of reality and toward a more inspirational one? Can shows like this one compete among flashier ones like Keeping Up with the Kardashians abd Jersey Shore?

Not as Great as I thought, but still OK

Im a ballerina as well, so I know what the dancers go through. They are such talented and beautiful dancers, however I think the show points out more of there drama and relationships then the actual dancing.
