Avoiding Regret: Five (5) Blunders Made by Parents of Talented Kids

Every parent makes mistakes; Few are insulated from at least some regret. Hearing about already-made blunders made by parents of talented kids can be very helpful, particularly for those facing the multi-faceted question of whether or not to put their child in front of a commercial camera.

Consider these Five (5) Blunders before you consent to your child’s participation:

1.) Pulling my child out of school for a half-baked dream.

2.) Paying big money to someone I barely know to “make my kid a star”.

3.) Not taking the time to research the entertainment industry for my education.

4.) Allowing my child to “call the shots”.

5.) Assuming that really hard work would come naturally to my child.
