Write Norma….. on this group. She’s living that scenario, and is also one of the best and wisest contributors to this board. I’ve been there and done it, as a child actor and on behalf of my daughter, who now is no longer a child actor. Memory fades for both of us. But I will share this…. I was a child actor, thanks to my dad, a working actor, and I do not have a lot of fond memories. (I still act.) When Erin (my daughter) watched me act, one of her ways of pleasing me was was to act. I discouraged her. She persisted. I gave in and helped her. And Erin did some good work as as actor…. stage and film. She no longer acts. Because….? Who knows? I think she has found her own life and knows that I love her, whether she acts, or gets married, or becomes the next Donald Trump (and that is her current goal.)

My daughter began acting at age 9 when she initiated successfully finding an agent. She is now 15 and still acts although opportunities are fewer than when she was younger. If you want to bounce your question off me, I’ll give it consideration Tish
