Welcome to the world of A Minor Consideration. In these pages you will find many issues concerning children who work in the entertainment industry. The most critical factor we are currently dealing with is the crazy-quilt patchwork of laws that impact today’s working child. The new SAG website featuring an easy-to-use format to compare and contrast various State’s regulations is now available to everyone at http://www.sag.org. Look for the Resources box on the right hand side of the SAG Homepage, then scroll down to “YP Database” and click on that to be taken to the State-by-State site where you can write in the State you’re researching. You will see for yourself why we’re seeking National Standards.

“A Minor Consideration” is a non-profit, tax-deductible organization formed to give aid and support to young performers---Past, Present and Future. Children in the Entertainment Industry are subjected to unique pressures, and many times the images they create outlast the money and the Fame. There are consequences to Early Fame, and several generations of former child stars have joined together to reorganize the structure that surrounds the most visible children in our society. Solid Parenting can overcome most of the difficulties faced by young performers, but a Child Star must pick their parents with care. Family Education is the key ingredient and the members of AMC are always “on call” to assist parents and their professional children on a ‘No Cost basis.’ By providing a strong emphasis on education and helping to preserve the money these children generate the members of AMC are always available to help in the tricky Transition issues that for many kid stars prove to be so troubling. We’ve “been there, done that.” Please see what we’ve accomplished at http://www.minorcon.org/tenyearstime.html.

Joe Pichler

Bremerton, Washington

Concerned members of A Minor Consideration are holding out hope that missing young actor Joe Pichler will soon turn up and end this growing sense of dread that has us on pins and needles. The circumstances of Joe's disappearance are alarming; the abandoned car, notes left behind, an unlocked apartment, and the brooding sea as the backdrop. Our hearts go out to Joe's family who are desperate for word of Joe's fate. Prayers for his safe return are needed.
