Moms, this is your chance. You can get your child to get into acting or modeling without becoming a monster mom. You have probably dreamed about seeing your child on television or on stage. That’s perfectly normal for every mom. After all, in your eyes, your child is a star.
Acting and modeling skills are actually essential to a child’s development. Both skills can make a child more confident. According to BackStage.com, acting teaches kids strong work ethics, perseverance, commitment, and respect, to mention a few.
A lot of stars started out when they were just kids. Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera all started out as Disney Mouseketeers. Miley Cyrus is well-known for her Hannah Montana days. Then you have Selena Gomez, who starred on a show on the Disney Channel, and Ariana Grande, who also started out as a child star on Nickelodeon. All these stars are famous and, ahem, filthy rich.
Now you might think these celebrities were all born gifted and talented to start with. However, without the proper environment and people to develop their talents, they all would not be where they are today. While some may be naturals, most child stars’ polished skills and talent come from years of training, experience, and exposure, according to the experts at KidsCasting.com.
One thing is for sure though. All of them had to start somewhere, whether it be casting as an extra on TV shows, starring in their school’s play, or even just performing during family gatherings.
If you can’t seem to recognize the natural ability of your child to act or to model, don’t crush your dream yet. Do not give up.
