My mom and dad have taken me into modeling agencies aswell, I used to be really into the whole idea of being a model, but when it came down to going back to auditions, my mom would always sit me down and ask me ''are you sure you want to do this?''.
All parents are different and have their own ideas about modeling, maybe yours just have the wrong idea about how models eat, and have health issues with the modeling idea.
Your parents could also just be concerned about how you would take it if you got shut down by some agencies. The best thing for you to do is sit down with your parents and confront them about why you seem to always ''miss'' go-see's or whatever you keep missing.
One last thing is that your only 13. I'm not calling you young, but at 13 I certainly wouldn't want to make up my mind about what im going to do for the next 20 years of my life or longer.
First of all your parents shouild be proud of the fact that you know what you want to do in life already . or rather for the moment.I mean you are going to make money, get to travel, and make new friends, and of course better yourself.I just can't imagine any parent that wouldn't want their child to pursue their dreams.i mean my parents help me any way they can.they even have to cancel or be late to important things that they have to do just make sure that they can help my dreams be fulfilled.i don't have the best parents in world but they are there for me any moment and anytime.they have a purpose as a parent and that is to help raise me and in raising me i believe its their responsibilty to help me pursue my dreams and become a better person as a child do i can grow up in to manhood and eventually help my children out!
ok i know you ask us 3 years ago but i think i can give you my oppinion now.. i am in the same place this summer one woman said me that i can be model and i say omg i love modeling.. i said it to my parents and the said me one BIG NO! now i give them whatever they want bcs i want it but they say me you can be model when u ll be 18 and i said them sorry i don't know how my face will be anw i just want to tell you that is really difficult i can understand you believe me:s
model productions sucks. they are a scam. everyone gets contracts. i mean everyone!!!! like this fat old man got one! forrrreeeal a scam. and i know because i went through it all and am under contract now. in total we spent $250 and got nothing. all of the casting calls are bogus and none of them are paid. not one. also next to none of them are even modeling. theyre like extra work and stuff.. thats not paid. and like student films. they suck. i hate them.
Well, maybe you can convince them that you want to model by showing them that other things (like grades or your health) will not suffer as a result. Tell them you'll have a "trial" period--they let you try out the modeling for one semester, or 5 months. If you grades go down or your health suffers, then you will quit it and never talk about it again. If you keep up your grades and maintain your health, they will let you pursue it further.
Most top models arn't discovered at very young ages. You never know how your face will mature. Don't be in such a rush! Your parents might not like the idea now, but if you stick with it for awhile exentually they should give in! Your their little girl right now and the modeling world is a very tough one maybe they think its silly right now. When your older your parents won't have control over you anyways!
My mom is ok with me becoming a model. But, my dad hates it he think models are dumb and will go no where. What should I do??
