All parents think that their children are special and have unprecedented talent and skills. It’s all apart of being a parent, but when is it right to push kids toward their “talent.”

For some parents, they will stop at nothing to make sure their children become famous, whether it be for their acting skills, musical genius or uncanny ability to play basketball just like Michael Jordan himself.

The question becomes, when is it okay to “push” a child and when should a parent back off. TV reality glorifies pushy and sometimes overzealous parents on shows such as “Dance Moms” and “Toddlers in Tiaras.” It makes for good TV, but is it too much? Should kids have the chance to be kids or is it OK for a parent to take the “no guts, no glory” method and make their child pursue a talent?

Weigh in. What do you think?
