Try this:

 

    var nextPara = app.selection[0].parentStory.paragraphs.nextItem(app.selection[0].paragraphs[-1]);

    /*Loop: If next paragraph is NOT "title" or "en" paragraph style,
    add it to the current selection. */
    try{
        while(nextPara.appliedParagraphStyle != app.activeDocument.paragraphStyles.item("title") 
        && nextPara.appliedParagraphStyle != app.activeDocument.paragraphStyles.item("en"))
        {
            nextPara.select(SelectionOptions.addTo);

Why are you refering to parentTextFrames[0]? You should refer to parentStory.

@danaken3  works perfect!

But I seen one post in same ID Scirpting forum if we used the nextItem() the performance getting slow, in more stories and more pages.

Thank for your support!

Unfortunately, that's the price you've to pay for using next/prev.

 

Do you need to do it once - globally - or many times - selectively? 

On the same Story - multiple Stories?
