I tried to get into modeling in my teen years and that's how i learned the entertainment industry is disgusting. But ever since my daughter was 2 she's wanted to be in movies. I know she can practically taste it but should i do this? I'm terrified but what if this is what she's meant to do? She has too much talent for me to let it go because im scared.

don't be so worried tricia. i dont want to tell you what to do, but have you tried praying and asking God to direct your decisions for her? He can see ahead and knows if she should or not. besides, i'm sure there you have good reasons behind how you feel about the industry, its not as if its unfounded; as a mom it's up to you to protect her and thats all you are doing. and you know what if she does have talent and you have instilled in her your values..then you've done your job. talents help guide us with what we are to do in life. hopefully she does the right thing, glorifies God and honours you. best regards.

enroll her in some acting classes at a community theatre. have her audition for some theatre roles. see if she's willing to put the work in and if she really likes it. there's no rush.
