Parents always say "I don't mind what you do with your life, as long as you're happy". Well, my mum did anyway. I would always retort with "Then I am going to become a prostitute". I was a charming teenager.

However, Laurence Fishburne's daughter, Montana, has apparently done just that, becoming a prostitute and topping it off with a sex tape all in a bid to become famous. Nepotism must not be alive and proud in her family?
My first reaction was "Her dad must be so proud".
Well, I am sure he's not happy about it, but if she's happy should he be happy?

Would you support your children if this was their chosen path in life? Is there a line they could cross where you wouldn't support them?

I would not support my children if they were involved in the sex industry. I would be loud, vocal, and I would most likely not be speaking very often to them. What parent could be proud when their child is degrading themself?

I think as long as you did a good job yourself, your kids should turn out alright. That's what I feel at least. If something went wrong along the line, no point in blaming them. You probably fucked up somewhere along the line.

I remember once seeing a documentary on pole dancing, and one of the dancers talked about her life, and how her mum had distanced herself after she found out the daughter was a pole dancer, but was gradually coming around and accepting it. They had the mum come and watch a pole dancing competition for the first time as part of the show and her daughter came second and the mum was happy for her. They looked like they were going to make it work, even if she was a pole dancer.
I know pole dancing isn't sex tape territory, but if you can come around to your daughter being a pole dancer, can you come around to them working in porn? I can't compare going to watch your daughter in a pole dancing competition to watching your daughter in a porn movie, but really, are you going to tell them they can't come for Christmas any more just for having sex?

I think crime is a more gray area, do you support your kid if they assault someone? Rape someone? Kill someone?
I know you can't give a blanket response and it all depends on circumstances, but I think my daughter doing porn, I would still have her over for Christmas. If my son raped someone though, sorry, Christmas is cancelled.

I'd beat the living shit out of my son if he raped someone.

Pole dancing isn't much of a big deal. s'long as it's not strippin'. I'd prefer if she balanced it off with other kinds of dancing though... I dunno...

I think this is one of those 'I cant really say until it happens' type if things (God forbid). I would like to say Id be supportive of my kids no matter what, but Im certain there is a point at which I would turn my back on them. Hopefully we will never know

Totally one of those situations where you hope your kid doesn't do porno and you would like to support them no matter what... but that can be easier said than done.

-HECK!

I think a lot of it is down to hope and proper guidance that they don't do porn or get into crime etc etc well that's our plan anyway. of course failing that you can always use the line that made me feel bad as a kid the classic " I'm not angry just dissapointed"
