iUnfortunately, children who appear on reality shows are not members of SAG (Screen Actors Guild) and not considered child actors. Federal child labor laws do not cover children in the entertainment industry, so individual states must establish their own laws, like California's "Coogan law." Other states may have their own laws that may or may not include a requirement for a trust fund. For example, Pennsylvania approved a law last year, similar to California's, that addresses children in entertainment and includes the requirement for establishing a trust fund. But according to A Minor Consideration, 16 states have yet to pass those laws. Georgia's children employed in entertainment requirements do not require a trust fund, as shown in the link below. Minors under 15 can work up to 10 hours a day, with required breaks.Quote:
f the state in which June and her kids live has a set of laws governing child actors that include reality show kids, then one of most common rules is the Coogan law, named after former child actor Jackie Coogan, whose parents essentially robbed him blind. As a result, child actors, first in California, and increasingly everywhere else, must have a portion of their earnings set aside in trusts for them.

Sorry, double post.
I live in a very expensive neighborhood and I can assure you a lot of these entitled and privileged kids have the same buckwild behaviors as the BooBoo's they just do it on a better scale. They don't go muddin,they take joy rides in mom and Dads luxury cars,have parties and drink liquor sometimes with mommy and daddy's ok. They get upset if they are told no about anything. The difference with those in the Kate Middelton class a lot of times they are left to their own devices so intervention usually happens once they have hurt someone else or themselves seriously. It happened in my neighborhood recently.
June does reprimand her kids and she is around them to at least try to keep them in line. I would love to challenge some of the kids in my block to find away to have fun like the BooBoo's do with nothing. I doubt they could.
When you have nothing....you make do and find a way! I like that it inspires creativity. It definitely can be better than having too much. Life's little lessons....
June isn't the first and she will not be the last to have a pregnant teen. Teens don't just get pregnant in poor areas with redneck moms. The implication seems to be because she is a redneck,has bad hygiene and loud kids she is any different than High class inattentive mom with lots of money who has a pregnant teen also. I would rather have the mom who spends time with me and may be less than attractive but still wants me around. YMMV
I never implied anything of the sort and I wasn't making any kind of comparisons. My point is that just because this woman goes along with the (manufactured, IMO) down-home "fun" for the cameras doesn't make her an attentive parent. She has somehow found time along the way to find different baby daddies for all her children and haul her little moneymaker to beauty pageants - oh, and apparently she's a hoarder, too. I never said she was worse than, say, those "real housewife" mommies - just rolling in a different kind of muck. But just as opportunistic and fame-hungry.
