What is the first step to being a child actor?

Protecting The Child Actor

If your child is interested in becoming an actor, there is more to learn than just how to get him/her work. Although there are strict laws about working with child actors, exploitation does crop up now and again. Paul Peterson, child star of "The Donna Reed Show," started an organization to protect child actors. The organization, A Minor Consideration, offers helpful information on the business and helps fight for the rights of underage actors. It's a good place to start research before getting your child in the spotlight.
