Former Child Talent Manager Pens Articles To Guide Parents of Children In The Entertainment Industry

A former child talent manager releases a series of high-demand articles to guide parents of children in the entertainment industry.

Online PR News – 08-July-2010 – – Kinda McCullough, a former child talent manager turned author, still frequently hears from parents anxious to help their child succeed in the entertainment industry - and that's why she's writing a series of articles about how to help one's child succeed in show business, and how parents can avoid common scams and pitfalls.

One child star she's observed with particular interest and admiration is Dakota Fanning, whose career and lifestyle prove that not all child stars in Hollywood follow the cliche "wild child" trajectory. McCullough features her as an example in her latest article, available at her website,

Although Dakota Fanning plays a sinister vampire in the latest Twilight movie, in real life she is a role model and a generous supporter of charities. Among the many charities she has been linked to are the Parkinson Society Maritime Region, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and Variety Power of Youth.

And although she has soared to heights of success that most actors and actresses only dream of, she continues to value education. Recently, in fact, she discussed how she had to miss a screening of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" so that she could take the ACT test.

"Many parents who I worked with were worried about the effect that success and the Hollywood lifestyle might have on their child," McCullough said. "Dakota Fanning is just one of the many examples of children who grew up in the spotlight and managed to remain grounded and professional. She clearly keeps her priorities straight and does not succumb to any of the negative influences that can tempt teenagers in Hollywood."

In her latest article, McCullough outlines the ways that parents whose children are in the entertainment industry can help to protect their children from Hollywood and from negative influences. There are numerous other articles on the website which parents of "showbiz kids" will find informative and helpful.
