You have a right to your opinon, but are you saying that the Smiths should front their money, time, etc
for another child? They should find hidden talent or go on a talent search? I think what you said is crazy.
Tell me who actually puts other children first before their children? I mean look at Donald Trump he
hired his children to help him run his business? Should he hired someone else's child because he and
his lot are already rich? Joan Rivers helped her daughter get in the business, Now she produced awards
shows and has a reality show and SHE doesn't have ANY ACTING TALENT. Look at what Keenan Ivory
Wayans did. he took his WHOLE FAMILY (ALL OF HIS BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO HOLLYWOOD) and got
them work and a foot in the door. (Kim Wayans isn't even funny but she got a sitcom for a little while) I
know that there are some tragic stories about child star actors but let's really look at the situations,,,
Let's start off with Ron Howard,,, TV commericals, Andy Griffith, Movies, Happy Days, Now a Movie
Director. Did you know his father was an Actor?? A child following in their parents footsteps. Jodie
Foster started acting in commericals at 3yrs old, TV Movies, and now a producer and director Both of
these actors had good parents. Now lets see Raven Simone,, Acting with Bill Cosby, then her own TV
show and produced the cheeta girls,,, Keshia *** Pullman same thing but she went to college just like
that chick that played Blossom (Mayim Bialik) She when to college after her TV show. Married with child.
Kim Fields same thing. Now you can say what about the other child stars "Different Strokes cast" River
Phoenix, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman. The biggest difference in Hollywood is the same difference in the
real world. Good Parents,, If you have good parents then you tend to have good children, But if you have
bad parents well, you know the outcome. The Smith children don't have to act, they don't have to bring
home a check to support their family. The ones that had too they are the ones that are messed up. I'm
not a pro-smith fan or anything, But I do know what happens when parents are not present in a child's
life like Drew Barrymore, smoking cigarettes at age nine, drinking alcohol by the time she was 11,
smoking marijuana at 12, and snorting cocaine at 13. WITH HER PARENTS. She followed into her families
footsteps. You got good and bad in every thing it all depends on what type of support system you have.
