If your child is in school, the form must also be assigned by the school principal as some states require you to do so. If the principal is not aware of the entertainment work permit, explain to them what it is because they will only sign it and when they understand what this is all about.
Part of the condition for the principal to sign it will mean making sure that your child’s grades are not failing to as a parent, you have to do your share in making sure there is a balance between their work and studies.
