Tips for raising a child actor
You will soon realise that being the parent of a child actor / actress is not always easy. As the parent you have the extremely important task of helping your child to make their dreams of becoming a child actor / actress true. Although there are many acting opportunities for kids in South Africa, it is a tough and competitive industry that requires dedication from the child and parent. Here are a few tips for parents and child actors:
- Interest: The most important thing is that your child should show a personal interest in acting. Should a child need to be forced to take part in auditions, it will only make them miserable, and can be frustrating for the production company and you as the parent. Make sure that your child is passionate about acting before seeking acting opportunities for him / her to take part in.
- Balance: Because acting is such a competitive industry, it requires a lot of time and hard work. This can be difficult for young children to cope with, so make sure that their acting does not affect other areas of their lives negatively. Find a balance that makes you as the parent, and the child happy. If your child is passionate about acting, then we suggest that you register him / her.
