Children in the entertainment industry... fair or unfair game

Children in the entertainment industry... fair or unfair game

So many people tell me I should consider getting an agent for Go-2-baby. I know some people say it just to be saying it, but lately I've been really trying to weigh the pros and cons of entertaining the possibility. It take a lot more than a cute face to make it in the industry, but so far my baby has the personality to match. She's one of the happiest babies I've ever seen in my life, but then my opinion is completely biased. My mom says that my dad refused to allow her to put me in modeling or anything of the sort when I was a baby or even a small child for that matter.

Go-2-Daddy isn't completely for or against the idea himself. My main fear is exposing my child to a world that she isn't ready for. I can only imagine how much emotional damage potential there is when it comes to a child experiencing rejection and comparison to other children on a regular basis. We see shows like Toddlers and Tiara's and the Dance Moms show on reality television, but the crazy part about it is the reality factor.

I would never want Go-2-Baby to feel inferior to another child because she didn't win a pageant or land a lead role in a commercial, play or anything. I commend all of the momagers that work hard and keep their children's spirits high through all of the ups and downs. I'm just not sure if I'm the mommy to do it. My baby is gorgeous in my eyes because she's mine.

I've entered my baby in a few contests here and there but I haven't really went hard with any of them. I have a nice online following and my contacts are almost never ending. If I really wanted to get my daughter started, I'm confident that I'd do a decent job at handling it for the most part on my own. The only thing stopping me is the fact that she currently has no say in the matter. She's a baby so there's no way of me knowing what she would like to do. I'd definitely want it to be her choice.

Are any of my readers momagers or momagents? How about any who have sought after representation for your children? I would like to hear about some of your experiences. Feel free to comment, I really would love more interaction on here, especially about this topic.
