Oh thank you so very much!!! I think she is extremely talented.
I appreciate you taking the time to look at her site and hear her vocals. I accidentally posted this message in the wrong forum! :

What made you decide to put her online? You mentioned that your family doesn't know anything about this. Were you referring to her father and siblings or some other family?

...but if you don't want her to do this professionally for another 10 years, what will a site do for her? I guess I was just wondering what you hoped this would accomplish if it's not an advertisement.

Why would there be a backlash over that? I have a babies online website for my daughter to show updated pictures to friends and family. She's beautiful and obviously talented I'm glad you're having her wait until she's older to try to go after a career in it though

I'd say as long as you have your daughters permission then you can do whatever the heck you want and everyone else can shove it.

But if your daughter doesn't even know, then that would be very, very wrong IMO.

If you were already anticipating that someone might tell you not to do it, don't you think that (if anyone does disapprove) the backlash might be 10x worse when you "announce" that you created it without any input from the other people that care about her?

OTOH, you may also get also backlash from family member who think the website is a great idea, but feel insulted that you didn't even ask for their suggestions.

Just my 2 cents.

I don't know what your situation is, but it seems to me that at least her dad should have some say about whether or not she is plastered on the internet???

She is a beautiful girl.

Buzz?

Fan base?

Professional?

Am I correct that this child is 6 years old?

She's beautiful and talented but I think I'd be uncomfortable keeping something like this from her father (if he's in the picture).

Having a website for a talented child is NOT the same as Showbiz moms and Dads...

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013.   If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!

Well I think that all of the girls who hit it big had a parent that pushed them forward (thinking Jessica and Ashlee Simpson). However I do want to share one story with you. I grew up with a girl named E. who was a beautiful girl that is extremely talented at playing the "fiddle" she loved to play. However her mom making her practice 3 hours a day and pulling her out of school so she could work on her "career" (in 7th grade) she ended up hating to play. She never became famous at all she just became a school drop out single mom. So yeah definitely SUPPORT your child and encourage her talent but do not DO NOT take away her childhood and her chances at a well rounded life.

Edit to add: I am a single mom too so I didn't mean that as a slam. I am extremely happy. However if I had been told all of my life that I was going to be a millionaire and a huge star then well I'd probably be depressed.

In all honestly this was my reaction too - especially when you want to not let her have a " career" until after age 16. She is beautiful and I'm sure she is talented - I did not watch the videos - but the site just made me feel weird.

I don't know why... but this hits a strange spot with me.
Beautiful child though.
Hope she still enjoys it by the time she is 16. Is she aware about the site. I did't see a reply yet. Why not get her right into it if you are already taking the steps?
