Sorry to say... They are not special nor extraordinary. If the child is going to Etobicoke School for the Arts or Cawthra Park (as examples) thousands of students attend them.

I would encourage your child to take up software engineering as a profession or one that has a higher graduate to employment ratio. Talent based "industries" are not easy to deal with. Furthermore, being in the arts is horrific at times. Body image is always questioned. Etc... Etc... Etc...

It may be nice and heartwarming to go to an "arts" school but, the ratio of graduates to actual careers is probably a smaller % than what they are for kids making it in the NHL.

So, I give you the same answer I give to the "hockey parents" who come here thinking their kid's hockey is S7. It is not. They are not going to get into the NHL and your daughter is not going to be a broadway star. It is easy for me to say this because statistics work in my favor on this one. I have just about as much chance at winning the lottery as your child has in obtaining a successful career in the arts.

Good Luck!
Tayken
