Gay Wolff provides parents with the perspective and strategies that she has developed from over 13 years of being a set parent. Readers also get advice and perspective from Cindy Osbrink, talent agent; Terrence Hines, Manager; Veronica Lauren, child and now adult actor; Adria Later, a top Studio Teacher; and Sandy Krebs, mother of high-profile child actors. Readers are first given an overview of how the industry works and some basics of how to get started. Parents are given a real-life description of what it means to get into acting: daily routines, getting a job, and what it's like on the job. Parents learn tips and techniques for taking care of their child's physical and mental health, for keeping perspective and balance in their family and in their own attitudes, and for meshing with the TV and film set environment for a more positive and fun experience. A resource appendix provides additional quality sources for your new venture.
