Over an eight year span this site said Hello to a half-million visitors. Last yearís traffic increased dramatically as the same worries weíve expressed countless times when it comes to professional young performers began to manifest themselves in utterly innocent reality show children whose parents, for fame, for money, perhaps for validation, literally put them on fameís railroad tracks with no idea that the Super Chief was bearing down on them. 100,000 visitors arrived here last year, most of them driven by an anxiety that had no name, people who instinctively shared our concern as the widely broadcast meltdowns of reality show families bought and paid for by arrogant networks that would have us believe that the uncompensated children on their artificially contrived reality shows live in a bubble world and will be untouched by their notoriety. We know better, and so do you. Too many parents donít understand that industry people and their hirelings donít mind earning dirty money. Our concern is the mess they leave behind in the lives of both the children they exploit on camera and the children who watch their mindless product.
"A Minor Consideration" is a non-profit, tax-deductible foundation formed to give guidance and support to young performers, Past, Present and Future. Child Stars must pick their parents with care. Family Education is the key ingredient to a productive future. The members of AMC are always "on call" to assist parents and their professional children on a 'No Cost basis.' By providing a strong emphasis on education and character development, plus helping to preserve the money these children generate, the members of AMC are always available to help with the tricky Transition issues that for many kid stars prove to be so troubling. We've "been there, done that." Our lessons were earned, not imagined. TO DONATE, CLICK HERE. THANKS.
