Stage Mothers

I had to share this photo with you. My son sent it from Michigan during dinner with my ice princess and her mommy. She is pretty enough to model, but mommy is very against it. My granddaughter modeled as an infant for a Canadian organic clothing company. At another photography session, my daughter-in-law encountered crazy stage mothers, who wouldn't allow their children to eat fruit in case they got dirty or even have a drink of water! Immediately, my daughter-in-law stopped with the modeling thing. My granddaughter still models, but only figure skating warm up clothing. My daughter-in-law knows the owner of that store and shops there often. There are no crazy stage mothers there! Do you know any child models?

No I do not know of any child models and that is a beautiful photo of her Dianne. She really is a doll. Yes, I can just imagine the insanity of some of those Moms.

Thanks so much! Of course, I'm prejudiced, but she certainly is a cutesy. I had to deal with crazy stage Mothers when I taught modeling.

I think your daughter-in-law made a wise decision in not subjecting her daughter to some of the silliness of modeling. I do not think I know any child models.

My oldest daughter was in a couple pageants and I saw what some of those girls go through. I was not one of those mothers, and it got expensive quick but I wasn't interested in allowing her to grow up in that "world" anyway.

Your daughter-in-law is very sensible. I had my fill of stage crazy mums when my daughter entered dancing competitions. I haven't known child models but my daughter has had a few friends at stage schools. Some were in some of the Harry Potter films.

Competitions are very similar. Some parents are nuts. I've seen it in sports and even in figure skating practices. I saw it when I taught modeling, too. It made me very uncomfortable, because these parents harm their children on so many levels.

@DianneN Yes they can cause harm. Some parents are trying to obtain glory through their own children.

I agree she has potential in modeling to be the next super model of the world! I think she is beautiful and cute! I would not let my child grow up with those stage mothers who have lost sight of reality and what really matters! When you modeled were you as young as her?

Thank you, but don't count on her becoming a supermodel. Lol! College first, at least. Yes, those crazy stage mothers truly lose sight of what really matters. I started modeling when I graduated college. Education first! lol

@DianneN yes, I agree education is first! i might take a noncredit course at the community college this fall. There is a bus that goes right to its front door! It will get me ready to go back for a Literature Ph.D. I want to teach it at the University of Pennsylvania. As you can see, i set my sights low

No child models, but I have seen the shows with the psycho moms with their kids in pageants and dancing competitions.

No donĀ“t know any of them but I can imagine how they are. She really is lovely in that photo. Her Mom is right to only let her model those kind of clothes.

No, I don't know any child models, Dianne, but I have heard some insane stories about stage mothers @DianneN . Your ice princess is a really beautiful young lady and she could easily be a model though.

Thanks, Catherine! She barely has time to model for the skating warmups. The photographer has to grab her moments before practices or lessons. Everything is rush, rush, rush with her.

@bluesa She loves everything she does. The trouble is that she wants to do more. My son had to put his foot down on horseback riding lessons. She had to quit ballet and piano for the ice.
