Before You Push Your Sunshine To Be An Actor
Ask 3 Most Vital Questions To Child | Themselves
There are some pivotal questions which must be posed—and answered—before potentially wasting valuable time and money investing in a child’s acting career for all the wrong reasons. Parents should ask their children (or, teens should ask themselves) the following to gauge their sincere interest in and devotion to establishing a life in show business.
1. Why do you want to be an actor?Is it just because it looks glamorous and fun, or does acting give your kiddo an outlet for expression and freedom, which they seemingly cannot get elsewhere? It is so important that we allow our children freedom of expression and creativity; if this means acting for your child, then it’s a good sign that you’re making the right choice to support her in a professional career.
However, ask them and even yourself as parents, are they willing to take acting classes, and if willing to continue to focus on studies and other extracurricular activities, ready to do their homework, if they’re ready for practicing acting-will they learn their lines, memorization skills? It takes a lot of work. It sounds like it’s great fun when you say, ’I want to be on TV,’ but are they willing to do the work?”
Though learning acting is good for everyone to be a successful in life, still you and your child must be clear about being actor as a A. life goal; As a tool for success in career C. As a hobby and fun
2. Do you want to be a full-time actor in future or want to be as a hobby and for fun?

Many children have a knack for or interest in the performing arts, which is fantastic. But that doesn’t automatically compute to their readiness in making it a career and putting all other interests on the background. “If your child had other hobbies before she started acting, don’t let her quit those immediately. See if acting becomes the most important thing in her life. If it’s meant to be, your child will eat, sleep, and breathe passion for the thisbusiness of acting!
3. What have you to do as parents?A. What a child expects from parents to fulfill her dreams?
B. And are you as parents willing to adust your life style and willing to sacrify your interests like hobbies-partying, out door activities, tourism, networking etc
