Parents of Child Models

The use of child models under 18 in advertising and model sites is widespread. In this poll, I am surveying the attitude of parents or guardians who permit their child or children to be used as child models. This poll assumes that the modelling work is totally legitimate : child porn is excluded. If you are not the parent or guardian of a child model, please answer the poll as if you were.
