My daughter (10 y/o) has expressed interest in trying to have a career in acting and she’s already started doing some shows at the local theater. Any advice on finding and landing gigs for children?

Keep having them audition - ideally for bigger productions. Another great way to help them get some exposure is to leverage social media to give them a platform. For instance, their own YouTube channel where they can create and share content. Don't underestimate the power of becoming an influencer in today's day and age. Good luck!

Get her headshots and submit her to agents!

I would suggest this as well. ONe of my friends did this for her kid. She got her an agent and started getting her modeling and acting gigs. Worked out pretty well for her.

My advice as a father is that you do not use your free time for shows and shows if you want her to fulfill her dream, help her to train professionally as an actress, or whatever she wants.

The best thing you can do is look for a children's representative, these people already have contacts and will help you find improvements for your girl, at the same time I think it has become clear that parents are not good representatives.

Get involved in local theater groups and workshops. This will give her a chance to learn from experienced professionals and network with other actors.

There are a number of websites that list acting auditions for children of all ages. These websites can be a great resource for finding acting opportunities, but it's important to remember that not all of these opportunities are legitimate. Be sure to do your research before submitting your child to any audition

The best way to find gigs for children is through networking. Talk to other parents, friends, and family members who may know of any opportunities. There are also many online resources that can help connect actors with agents and casting directors. Finally, be sure to have your child attend as many auditions as possible. The more experience they have, the better their chances of landing a role.

Get her a headshot, an acting resume, demo reel, and an audition material. Have you heard of an online casting platform? Backstage to be specific.

You're starting out fine at the local theater. The bigger productions is a pool of opportunities since some agents could be attending for the purpose of finding new talents. Keep your eyes peeled for commercial and advertisement shoots and sign her up at an agency.

You need to find an agent. Make sure that the agent knows the law. Good luck!

I don’t trust that the guy I’m dating is over his first love. We’ve talked about it but it’s hard for me to believe him: he sends her birthday wishes, still hangs out with her in group settings, was very sad when he told me about her dumping him, asked her to get back together a couple weeks before we started dating, etc. Do I just move on now?

Thinking of breaking up with my long term boyfriend but have gained 50lbs in the 6 years we have been together and terrified no one else will find me attractive or love me at this weight… especially since the 25lbs I gained during quarantine last 1.5 years has already strained this relationship where he already loved me.

Whoever said that acting was easy, clearly never set foot in a set. The hours we endure are endless, and don't get me started on filming outdoors during wintertime.
