Would You Let Your Teen Become A Fashion Model?

If you are the parent of a teenager, have you ever been asked by your teen that he/she wants to be a fashion model?

While a large number of teens who want to be fashion models are girls, there are some boys who also wish to do so.

Although your teen may wish to become a teen fashion model, the question is should you let them?

Lets hear your opinion if you find yourself in this situation.

tpiah, can't seem to catch you online. Ba magana, maybe one day. I am a single parent ( how I hate that label). My baby is eyeing Cambridge (its her school putting that idea in her head. Last year she was on a holiday trip to Norfolk England which has convinced her more than ever, So to help her momma, she feels she has to model. Wish it were that straight forward. model, make money and off to college. how about the brad pitts of this world who may hit on her. My preference is Clooney and he can hit at me anytime.

Back to subj (did you notice i digressed)?. Pet eng is da bomb but she is a civil person all that measurements and constructions. Did you read the fountain head Ayn Rand?

Teens are going crazy for modelling, the razzmatazz the glamour not really considering that it is really hard work . And I tell my daughter, one's body is sold to the designer to do whatever he/she so pleases. I deduce if my body does not belong to me for the duration of my contract then whats his name, dolce or gabbanna or Oshodi could jolly well do what they please with my body. would I always like this or would I sometime feel like the woman who sold out her body for a period of time when its time to bare my bosom and what else.

But never mind me I am just an old fuddle diddle from la di la land!

^^just out of curiosity, why do you prefer engineering to medicine?

it's true about modelling being stressful and time intensive though.

I feel modelling will be a distraction. Lets face it, modelling is not really a proper job and it has a lifespan. Besides it would take up almost all her time. I know Tyra moved on but unto a talkshow. Medicine or engineering would demand total dedication. I'm seriously routing for engineering. she is an only child and I want job security for her, I cannot stand the finickiness of modelling, here today stale news tommorrow. And there is another most impt reason!

looking at my teen, super model comes to mind. Goodness knows, she has all it takes. There is a twist here though, she wants to become an engineer but I will be guilty all my life if I dont give her permission to model. She's so it. You see I wonder how life would have turned out if I had gone for a paegent I was too qualified.

No,the pressures and stress too much.

However,if my tennage childis dreaming to be a model,i wud tell her/him to wait till hes grown up,then i can point out the advantages and disadvantages,if he/she still wanna go ahead,i have nothing else to do than to support her/him.

Working as a teen model is a great way to prepare my child for working in the “real world,” but it should not interfere with his/her education and it is a decision that will be made by the whole family.
