Yeah I would. I wouldnt push it on them but if it's something they were interested I wouldnt forbid it. Plus I think my kids are the cutest things out!

An agency called me today for my daughter to attend an interview but Im a little scared to commit as Im unsure about the rep. of the company concerned. Have you heard of Casting Kids or alternatively know of anyone who has used them?
Also could you recommend a "reputable" company?
Thanks in advance

Depends. If its something they were interested in, sure!
My grandparents enrolled me in a deportment and grooming coursr through a modelling agency when I was 13, just after I lost my nan because they said I needed an attitude adjustment (I was 13 and just lost the only mum I knew a couple of months prior... I was grieving... but anywho another story). They didnt realise it was actually a course on learning modelling techniques etc... and I got a crap load of work out of it and won several awards. It had a huge positive impact on me and my self confidence. I loved it. I did it for a number of years, but mum made me stop when I reached grade 11 because the work was starting to get more frequent and meant I missed a fair bit of school. I wasnt happy about giving it up, and when I stopped I went back into my shell a bit. I still regret not taking it up again once I finished school but I guess having dd1 put a stop to it anyway lol.
And for the record- it wasnt based on looks. It was about building confidence, learning proper etiquette and manners, and learning how to behave in various social situations. We were never criticised or told we needed to change, if fact wad quite the opposite, the agency encouraged and included all shapes, sizes and looks. There was no body shaming, no negative body image... we were all encouraged and made to feel beautiful in our own skin.

Old thread, but yes, I would let my DS model. He certainly has the looks for it (yes, I'm biased), but not sure he'd follow a photographer's direction well (he had ASD).
I wouldn't pursue it or sign up to an agency, but if he was discovered in a shopping centre or airport (like many top models!) and he was asked to model for a reputable legitimate brand, I'd go with the opportunity - if he wanted to of course.
