Blogging about my personal experience with my own child....
There are so many opportunities here locally, however, if you really make an impression on these agencies, you will often be referred to auditions in Los Angeles.
This is where I fell short with my daughter because they would call you at 6pm at night and say be here tomorrow morning. So without notice, I would be packing the car and running to LA all day for auditions.
This can usually only work if you are a stay at home mom or self employed. Then to make things harder on the endeavor, if you get a call back, you could drive home and wait a day and get called back for the next day. They just don't tell you anything or give you any notice usually.
I like to always deliver the good with the bad, so please keep that in mind. If you are really serious about your child breaking into show business, you have to look at the commitment it will take. You will make a financial commitment to training, photo costs, voice tapes and travel. Then, there is the schedule commitment. Home school might be a requirement as well because usually schools will not put up with students missing school regularly.
I actually gave up on the idea of traveling for my own child's auditions. I just could not do it. I was a self employed real estate agent, but I would have to cancel appointments and move things around so much I was going broke.
Just read the story of Britney Spears mom. She quit her job, packed up her child and moved across the Country. Can you do it? If not, you might just stick to small local jobs for your kids and an occasional big opportunity that hundreds will be fighting for.
If it is a dream though, never quit, never give up. You can do it!
