Iron Clad Contracts
The moms erred by signing them without probably seeing if there was a note in there saying if they could remove the children from this without penalty. If there wasn't they should've demanded that there was an inclusion.
Sincerely - I have read through - even 10 pages worth - on reality TV show contracts to ensure that if I entered the contest I knew what I was setting myself up for. With one exception - which is still being considered - I have turned down all of them because even if I'm qualified (in the case of "Project Accessory" when they did that - very qualified), I didn't like the fact that they basically could control my life worse that President Snow controls the Victors' lives in "The Hunger Games."
