Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Would you be okay if your 4 year old was a model?

Following the suggestions of many friends and strangers, I submitted my son't pictures to 3 reputable modelling agencies. I got a call back from all 3 of them. 1st agency wanted to have an interview, 2nd agency expressed their interest in himbut concern that we live quite far from them and the 3rd agency requested more pictures looking straight at the camera. All the pictures I submitted were taken by me...not professionally taken.

Now that I heard from all 3 agencies I began to really think of the advantages and disadvantages of being a child model and how will it affect my handsome and well-adjusted 4 year old.

well if you have the opportunity, why not. Try it out, it could be some good money for his college fund.  You just have to remember your child's best interest.  When I was little (like 4 or 5) my mom had signed me up too and I was retained to do a commercial.  Once on set I changed my mind and my mom respected my choice.  If he doesn't want, pull him out, please don't be one of those crazy pagent moms

I know a little girl who models, her mom take her places, been doing it awhile. The mom hasn't complained at all, yet. Give it a shot.

I won't let her.  Unless and until she wants to do it as a teen or older.  I would like my daughter to grow up with a healthy self-image.  She is a ham, loves cameras, and photographers love working with her (personal photos).  Many photographers have even told me that we should not allow her into that life, even though many would want her to model

He is really really really beautiful. The hardest thing for me is that he gets more attention than his twin sister no matter where we are/go. He gets special treatment at school, airplane etc because of his look and personality. What prompted me to submit his picture was a stranger's commenence 'I used to work for a modeling agency, if I were still in that business I would pick your son without a doubt. He is unique' She said.

If he wants to and us having fun then yes. If it starts to become too much for him or you, you can always pull him out of it. I say go for it
