Stage Parents to be Staged in GMA's Anak Ko Yan Talent Search

GMA Network has already been preparing for their newest reality talent search entitled Anak Ko Yan. To be hosted by Jennylyn Mercado, Anak Ko Yan will feature kids from 7-17 years old who will showcase their talents. The twist is: their stage parents will be highlighted as well.

In the field of performing arts, stage parents are those who accompany their children while the latter do their showbiz duties. They're usually the managers of their own children and most of them are the source of pressure for their children. 

While their actions are honorable, there have been prejudices towards stage parents. That even when they are there to push their children for success, it's actually their own dreams that didn't get fulfilled that they're trying to have materialized through their children.

Will this nuisance also be evident in the show? Or will it all the more inspire more parents to push their children be what the latter would want to be?

Set to be aired in daytime and most probably against the already strong daytime lineup of ABS-CBN, the bigger question is: will Anak Ko Yan be strong enough to go against its competing shows?


  1. Wow! isa n nman itong ka abang abang n programa ng GMA 7. sayang hnd pasok sa age limit ang anak ko. she's 3 year old, she can sing, dance and act.

  2. parang ang negative ng dating ng nagpapayabangan na parents na napapanood na teaser. their kids may be talented pero baka sa negativity ng parents mahatak pababa... sana wag ganun.

  3. yeah you are very very right Valerie...negative talaga ang dating!! hindi na siya healthy s mga bata, baka iniisip nila tama ginagawa ng parents nila na nagpapayabangan..!! in the end baka gayahin sila ng mga anak nila perhaps in school....NEGATIVE talaga..
