No matter what age your child is, their safety will always be a top priority for every parent. The fashion and modelling industry is fast-moving and can often make one feel too overwhelmed or lost. Whether it is your child who has approached you with the modelling idea or you took the initiative, in either of the cases, it is advisable to prepare your child for it before stepping into it. Ensure that you and your child are committed to working per industry norms and are willing to invest in the time.

Numerous pseudo agencies and artists are waiting to prey on unsuspecting children and parents as it is hard to look out for shady businesses. Hence, it is wiser to do your thorough research before approaching any agency. Any agency that charges you a joining fee or asks you for money before signing you with their agency is illegitimate. A reputed modelling agency earns through commission from the work your child receives. Note that managers and legit agencies would never ask for money upfront.
To save yourself from scams, you must research thoroughly. You can find out a lot about the agencies through a simple Google search. You must ensure that their websites are genuine. Nowadays, various authentic agencies have an online presence too. Social Media offers a fantastic tool to know more about the legitimacy of a modelling agency or institute. The internet and social platform can be a great source of information and opportunities but, it is also a place where several scam artists lurk. Also, reading reviews posted by previous or clients and models working with them can help you frame a judgment. Hence, proceed only when you find the agency trustworthy.
If you feel that Internet and Social Media research is enough, at times, it may not be. There are certain aspects to take critical note of.
