This blog covers a lot of topics that are really relevant to the young actors trying to balance their school, chores, and acting careers. But let's be honest, kids have a pretty significant resource: their parents! Parents help learn lines, drive their kids to acting class and auditions... even pay for those classes! What if the tables were turned? What if the parent was the actor?

Balancing parenthood and acting is a topic that gets little attention, which is ridiculous considering the number of leading actors that have children themselves. So let's get into this! The SAG-AFTRA Foundation organized a panel of experts (parents!) to talk about how they manage to balance parenthood and their acting careers. 

Join us for an evening with a panel of actors from stage and screen who will discuss the joys and challenges of raising children while fostering robust careers. They will explore best practices for navigating irregular schedules, long hours, two-show days, five-performance weekends, and frequent travel.

Are you a parent and an actor? How do you balance the two? We want to hear from you!
