BizParentz Foundation is All About Family

BizParentz Foundation is an IRS 501 c(3) nonprofit organization devoted to protecting professional child performers and helping them become healthy and successful adults. We partner with parents, government and industry organizations to advocate for children in the entertainment industry, while supporting and educating parents. Learn more About Us here.

We hope Bizparentz becomes a part of your family’s Show Bible*!  There are hundreds of pages and thousands of expert links here, all free! This isn’t a site for casual surfing on your phone– the articles are long and we encourage  a deep dive. It can be overwhelming, so how do you start?  We suggest you choose Browse or Search. Click the tabs in this box to learn more.

Looking for fresh content? Click News & Press in the menu for our most recent posts.


P.S. *Don’t know what a Show Bible is?  Click on the link above to learn something new. Look at that — you’re on your way!

The search box is your friend! You’ll find it in the upper right of every page (magnifying glass icon). Just type in words like “Coogan”, “babies”, “Georgia”, “residuals”, or even “kitty litter”. Like movie magic, all the articles will appear.

Just want the latest news?  Click News & Press which is always in the menu bar at the top of the page.

Jumping in With Both Feet?

You might want to start by browsing the site in sections, reading each article. Start with New to the Biz.  If you look to the right menu bar (or the “hamburger” icon if you are on mobile), you can navigate to articles in that section, or you can click on the bright blue boxes to find related articles we think we you might like.

Experienced parents, talent reps or filmmakers, may want to browse in the Biz-ness section for more advanced groupings of articles such as Financial Core, Publicists or Taxes. Again, the bright blue bars will suggest other articles that we think you might be interested in.  Producers can find resources specific to filmmakers here.

How We Help

Welcome to the business. There are some important things you need to learn to protect and advocate for your child performer. Start here.
If your child is performing professionally, it’s important to understand the ins and outs of the industry. This information will help.
Child performers are protected by different laws on a state by state basis. BizParentz can help you . We also encourage parents to advocate with state legislators on behalf of their children.
Wondering if there’s a difference between an agent and a manager? It’s important to understand what these different job titles mean. Learn more.
Hopeful children and their parents sometimes fall victim to entertainment industry scams. We have resources and information to help avoid them.
Education is the single most important factor in a child’s ability to transition into a successful education as an adult, whether that’s in entertainment or another industry. Fortunately, it is possible to work in the entertainment industry and still get a rock-solid education. Learn how.
