My son was away this weekend at a youth event with 16,000 other teenagers. While walking in the concourse of the arena, a woman handed him a card and said "If you're interested, give me a call."
It was a modeling agency.
I'm reminded of the original Pinnochio where all the silly boys went off and made jackasses of themselves. Of course, it is my job as a mom to wave all the red flags. Women think through the logistics and implications. Men just see the picture in a magazine.
I don't read magazines.
I will think about this for a bit and may rant in a separate blog entry later. Modeling is just not congruent with my values and I believe they would mess with his.
