Candy Bennici, Mother of Child Star, Taran Noah Smith, comes to the show to discuss raising a child star. The pitfalls and the triumpsh. Are you wondering what you can do to help your child fulfill this dream, but afraid of the effect of fame on your child and your family? In today’s world, with showcases, contests and reality shows, there are so many ways a child can become a star almost overnight. Because of this it’s crucial for the family to be prepared for the experiences that follow.

In the last twenty years many people have asked me, “How did a little kid from Marin County end up on the national hit TV show, ‘Home Improvement?’ What in the world did you do?” I have written Stardom Happens to answer that question for parents who have a child who wants to perform. I have managed three children in the business and all three were successful. My daughter was a child model who went on to become an international model at the age of fifteen, my friend’s son became a TV and film star and my own son, Taran Noah Smith, was Mark on “Home Improvement.” All three did well, but more important, all three had a positive acting or modeling experience.
