Shows That Hire Children Under 18 Must Have A Teacher On Set Daily In Which Kids Must Go To School For A Minumum Of 3 Hours And Never Work More Then 8 Hours Including School

Many Young Actors That Work Alot Usually Get Home Schooled Or Tutored Missing Out On All The Real Cool Things Of A Regular School
Crew & Cast Get Hungary Always 24/7 Thats Where Craft Service Comes In The Have Food Avail All Day For Snacks Etc..

Catering Must Prepare Whole Meals While Filming & Crews Must Be Broken To Eat A Meal Ever 5 Hours -So Normally A Breakfest When Arrival & A Lunch & A Dinner

We Were Spoiled On Our Set We Had Chicken Fish Steak Daily With Many Dessert And Sides. You Name It We Had It --
