Hope everyone had a great weekend!! I spent a great deal of time thinking about, talking about and watching the Academy Awards and the red carpet! I'm exhausted!
Speaking of the Oscars, today's Momversation topic is all about showbiz and would you put your kids in it.
For me, it would have to depend on my kids and how they feel about it. I would never put them into something they do not want to do. Who is really happy then? The mom who has to drag the kid who doesn't want to be there in the first place? Just sounds like a wasted afternoon to me.
And besides, the industry is cutthroat even with child models and actors. I don't want them to be disappointed if they don't get they job or get a complex. How do you explain that to a kid?
They have to want to do it like they want air to breath, because it's an overwhelming "hobby". If they get to an age where they understand and really want to be a part of the "glitz and glamour" ( we all know it's not!). I would consider it. But start them small. All the best actors started in their local community theatres, if they love doing that only then will I make the big leap to showbiz.
I'm a little bias but I think they would make great models!
But if they are not having fun then no one is!
What would you do?
