Raising Child Models - What
You as a Parent Should Do
If you're looking to help your child become a model, you have to come to terms with
the fact that your child's journey will be yours as well. You are ultimately your child's
partner throughout his career, and if you're not ready to be there with him every step

to modeling jobs. You have to know how to work with your child as well as with other
people on the team when on a shoot or other gig. You also have to accept that your
knowledge and experience has its limits, so at times, it's best to give up the reins to
agents from modeling agencies when it comes to things like managing your child's

or Los Angeles is no small deal, so see it as a win in your book.
