My 9 year old son has gotten into acting/modeling, he is very social and outgoing and willing to try it.. my 12 year old daughter who is very good looking but says she has no interest.. at times she seems jealous though... how do others keep their non acting children's egos in balance?

May see if you can get her into nice activity like karate or dance class or something of her own that you can all be proud of. Maybe even a sport/cheerleading or nice school club. encourage her to spread her wings and see what out there. The only thing is that as a parent I know how hard it is to get kids to their activities..so maybe just start with one thing. Keep reassuring her that you love her the same as your son.
