    Those kids from "The Wonder Years" seem to be doing okay. Although, I'm not too sure about what happened to the nerdy one. The one who was rumoured to be marilyn Manson

    Ok, some of you may not know this one, but do you remember the bratty little sister, Dee, from "What's Happening" I believe she's a veterinarian now.

    I think he's a lawyer, actually! And yeah they did do well, all of them. Danica McKellar is some math whiz!


    I'm interested as to what the kids from The Nanny are up to now.

If the parent(s) are living their dream through their famous child, they may be more focussed on their own semi-fame than whether what's going on is appropriate for their child. If the child is treated like their parents' gravy train, that would probably put a lot of unhealthy pressure on a child. And if the parents are wrapped up into the money and crazy lifestyle, they seem to overlook their child's unhealthy, illegal, immoral lifestyle choices. Think Dina Lohan, for instance. Even famous celebrity children need their parents to set rules and boundaries that will keep them safe and teach them the lessons they'll need to become well adjusted adults. Celebrity children are still children, and they need their parents to set good examples.
    IAWTC - the child actors who grow up well adjusted are the one's whose parents DO set boundaries and are not living their own fustrated dreams through their children.

    As for former tv actors - the kids from the Cosby Show are doing ok, the last i read. Also the kids from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Sorry but i can't remember the names of the characters or the actors who played them.

    And how about the kids from Saved By The Bell? They're doing ok as well. The guy who played Zack is still acting, i think he was in a tv show with Geena Davis.

    Jason Bateman turned out OK. His sister Justine had a bout with anorexia back in the 80's but I think she's OK too.

    And Rick Schroeder (sp?), wasn't he on NYPD Blue for a while? I remember seeing a pic of him and he has really aged...too much time in the sun.

    Waaaay too early to tell on that one. Check back in 10-20 years. Plus...is she really a star? I don't consider her one.

    Here's the best one of all: Ron Howard! (Opie Taylor AND Richie Cunningham)

    Shes has her own show (Zoey101) And she sings the theme song. I would consider that a star.

    My sister used to do commercials when she was a little kid and she met him a few times. My mom and her both said that he is the nicest guy in real life.

    Peter Billingsley, he was Ralphie in "A Christmas Story", he was Messy Marvin on some cereal commericals, and did some after school specials. He now produces, directs, and does some acting. He was involved in Elf, and The BreakUp. Can't remember what else, but he totally has it together, and when you see his face, he still has those huge blue eyes like Ralphie!
