Some of them turn out not so good and become drug addicts or something. Is it because they were in the business since they were kids and didn't get to really be a kid... and they are led astray by the Hollywood? Or is it just bad parenting?

There is indeed such a phenomenon in the field.There are some child actors that we like who becomes bad when they grow up.Well,maybe that's the reason for they steped into the field so early and already so sophisticated.

Fame is really something that many adult actors have trouble grasping completely when they should have the full maturity to know what they are getting themselves into. So child actors would be much of the same, where they gain fame at such a young age. It can be rather intoxicating for the most part, it can inflame the mind and also it can be an insane amount of pressure. It is almost like some grim self fulfilling prophecy, that the younger you are when you become known, the worse that you will turn out mentally speaking. It is rather awful to think about how many child actors started promising but flamed out. And in the back of my mind, many of those parents are likely pushing their children, living their lives through them, because they want to be the parents of someone famous. That is the sickest part of all.
