Child Modeling – Kickstarting Your Kids Career
Who doesn’t want the best for their kids. Every parent wants nothing but the best opportunities for their children. Establishing a successful careers is certainly a big part of that. It is a well established fact that recruiters worldwide look for people with multiple capabilities. Towards this end, we put them through endless rounds of tuition, sports training, varied art & music classes and what not. By doing these things we empower our children with what we presume will be additional qualifications to their personal profile.
One of the biggest boost to a child’s chances at advancement is by increasing their social skills and their personal confidence. A way to propel their confidence is by throwing them into the limelight and enrolling them into social visible activities like a photo contests for example.
This offers many advantages for the child from a developmental as well as a professional point of view:-
1) It improves their awareness about dress codes & encourages them to be well turned out.
2) Gains them more acceptance and presence within their circle of friends.
3) Gives them first hand exposure to the very demanding tenets of a career in media & entertainment.
Most kids are hooked on TV these days and consequently all of their heroes are either small screen or big screen idols. It could be someone like Batman or the gun-toting investigator or the cute little girl in a chocolate ad! Obviously given a choice they would love to be part of the dream makers too. Every kid wants to be a star!
But which one of your kids has the driving ambition & skills that this profession demands? This is where these contests play a big role. Children are able to experiment with their creative side without being subject to any of the pressures involved and have loads of fun at the same time!
As is a well known fact, getting an entry into the entertainment business seems to involve a great deal of luck going by all the accounts of all the now-so-famous but the then not-so-famous stars and their rags-to-riches stories. The trick apparently is in BEING SEEN, being visible and constantly being brought into view of the powers that be. so what better way to break them in than a photo competition – with prizes too?
The addition of prizes encourages children to put forth their best. Finally but not the least, oh what a load of fun it is! Such contests involve so many dress trials, trying out expressions, experimenting with make up (any little girl’s dream), approved access to otherwise forbidden territories (there’s nothing like the thrill of flouting rules!) It’s a wonderful medium for children to express themselves as well as have others appreciate their efforts for years to come.
The very participation in such contests is a source of pride -for the parents, friends as well as their teaching institution. Being the source of pride for their parents boosts a child’s confidence no end.These are opportunities for the parents also to express their love for their children in an open forum. This further enhances a child’s personality by making them feel more secure in their parents’ love. Such opportunities do not arise often-so grab them when you see them and have fun!
