Not every child star grows up dealing with rehab, cops and the legal system.
With all of the negative events surrounding former child stars such as Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan, it's nice to remember many child stars turned out all right...well, even more than just all right! Our list contains award winners to Ivy League college graduates to family-makers.
Stars like Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake got their career started as children on The Mickey Mouse Club, and since then have gone on to win multiple awards in music and more. Hilary Duff and Natalie Portman, both child actresses, are now happily married mothers.
We hope all the new celeb parents don't stop their own kids from entering the industry at a young age—there's too much talent!
