We all know the entertainment industry is a tough business. There's many downfalls & some people turn out OK, but of course others don't. The family trekking all over for auditions, one day you're 'in' & people want you, the next day, you can be a has-been, etc. You have to have a tough skin for numerous reasons. Child stars have it much rougher than those who started out as teens or older because they're no longer the cute kid from the (__) TV show & they have to be strong to realize no one may give them a role anymore. Would you earnestly try to put your kids in show business? Do you know anyone who has? I must have been way too young to remember this, but my mom said she tried to get me in a movie in which I'd play the baby of a top singer (I won't say the name). Needless to say, I didn't get the role. I don't know what else she tried to get me in. That might have been it. If I had a baby, I really don't know. That's going down a very different path from a normal life. I think a lot of us could say, oh what's the harm to be on a little commercial or something, but if someone actually wants your child to audition for a show or even film, could you really turn that down or will the excitement of it all get to you?
