Jada Pinkett-Smith, Whitney Houston and Brandy Norwood Offer Parenting Advice

You might think Jada Pinkett-Smith, Whitney Houston and Brandy Norwood are the last people on earth who should be offering parenting advice to anyone. But they don’t feel that way.

Jada, Brandy and Whitney were recently asked their best piece of parenting advice. Their answers gives some insight into the environment that their over-indulged, spoiled brats are being raised in. Don’t be surprised when these children act out and begin to abuse drugs and alcohol at a young age.

Here’s what the ladies had to say.

Jada Pinkett-Smith allows her kids to raise themselves:

“Staying out of kids’ space can teach them to be responsible for their own decisions and mistakes. Is it their room, or are they borrowing the space while they’re living in your house? If it’s theirs, then they should be able to do whatever they want with it. If it’s their clothes, they have the right to do whatever they want with those clothes. We have to give them some freedom to be who they are.”

Singer Whitney Houston doesn’t set limits on 16-year-old Krissy’s behavior:

“If [Krissy's] angry, I allow her to say, ‘Damn! I’m so frustrated today!’ I want her to count on me to try to understand what she’s going through. No damnation, no condemnation, nothing that’s going to make her feel like she can’t come to me.”

Singer Brandy Norwood wants to be her 8-year-old daughter Sy’rai’s best friend:

“A lot of mothers feel like they’re the mom first, with that authority,” Brandy told Parade. “But for me, I’m a friend first. I believe that just being there for my daughter as a friend more than ‘I’m in charge’ causes her to be more open with me as a person.”

Here’s what one expert says about immature parents, like Brandy, who strive to be their children’s friends:

“I think parents often make the mistake of making their child their confidante. The child is not morally, emotionally or intellectually prepared to play that role.” READ MORE

    It’s not just you. Our children will be grown longer than they will be a child. You do have to seperate being a parent vs a friend while they are growing up. You don’t have to be their “friend” to keep the communication open. As much as I like to give my children their space while living under my roof, if I feel it necessary to go through their “stuff” I will.

    Jada – Kids can be individuals but still need guidance (hence that gawd awful outfit she’s got on)

    Whitney :blink: from the pics I’ve seen of your child lately, pull those reigns in now before she ends up like montana fishburn.

    Brandy – we are ALWAYS mommies first. In the friend zone kids think they can get away with **it.

    Bird says:

    They will all learn the hard way about that “I’m my child’s friend” thing. Your child don’t need no old azz friend. They need friends they’re own age. They need guidance from their parents. Anywho, tune in to TMZ 10 years from now to see how this works out. We already see Bobbi Chris is completely out of control.

    My response to Whitney’s statement…… DOUBLE CRICKETS AND A BALE OF HAY AND EXPECT A CALL FROM MTV FOR A SPECIAL EDITION OF “CELEBRITY 16 AND PREGNANT”

    Whitney can keep her advice to her damn self, don’t think she’s qualified to give it.

    Jessie says:

    WTH. No way. Brandy needs to learn your child is not your “friend”. You are a PARENT and your first responsibilities are to love, set guidelines, and lead. You have plenty of time to be a “friend” once they grow up and move out.

    I am very disappointed in Jada and Will. I really thought they had their heads screwed on right but I guess I’m 100% wrong. No kid needs “personal space”. When you’re in my house, every room is MY HOUSE. You can have privacy when you shower and when you’re changing clothers. But as long as you’re a minor, what you wear is ultimately MY DECISION.

    And Whitney’s daughter is already smoking and drinking so who really wants to hear parenting advice from her!!

    How is that working out? How old are your kids? Do you really expect them not to have BFFs? You think they will prefer 100 year old mom as their BFF rather than their totally cool peers? I tell you what, my 19 year old has always known I’ve had her back. I let it be known that she could talk about anything with my by bringing up touchy subjects myself and letting her know I would never judge her. But guess what? I learn sh*t about my daughter than I never knew by looking at FB. Regardless of how cool I am, she currently thinks I’m an alien, but unlike the ladies above, at least I gave her guidance. She is well mannered and a virgin who has no interest whatsoever in drugs, alcohol, cigarettes or giving her goodies to loosers. Already Whitney can’t say that about her daughter and she is younger than mine. So I’m cool with my daughter confiding in her friends with the crazy is. She was raised right.

    Jada got her face pulled to tight. It's affecting her brain now. If a ninja ain't paying me to rent that room, IT'S MINE. And if they are, they STILL can't do whatever they want in it. Even paying tenants have rules they must follow.

    Kids have a right to adequate food, shelter and clothing. Everything else is a privilege that should be earned.

    Rights? Right. MY kids have the right to remain silent cause anything they say CAN and WILL be used against by me. Peesh.

    All I can do is SMH. Those kids are gonna be out of control if none of their parents step up. Poor Krissy is already too far gone. Who would take advice from Whitney? I mean really tho…..WHO???? Does Whitney even take her own advice? This post has pissed me off and I don’t even have kids nor like them. UGH!!!

    When it comes to parenting, there are different strokes for different folks, simply put. One will say this is the best way to handle this or that situation and someone else will disagree. Unfortunately, there isn’t a handbook or an instruction manual to tell you how to raise your kids. You succeed through trial and error. I may not agree with some of the advice (use that term loosely) dished out. Whether or not these views on parenting is effective is to watch and see what kind of child they end up with…. :shrug:

    Bird says:

    And I’m not implying that I was a perfect parent because I wasn’t and despite my prodding my daughter has not gone to college and just got her first job ever. But she has not destroyed her life and once she gets a few of those minimum wage checks and figures out they will not give her the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed she can go to school without being sattled with a baby, criminal record or substance abuse problem. I’m just sayin.

    There’s a bigger picture when you are a parent. How many white kids are in the garage w/Meth labs and a arsenal of weapons and mom and dad don’t have a clue until they do a “Columbine”. I have every right to check my kdis room when I see fit. I’ve only done it once out of 3 kids, and the only thing I found was a porno tape.

    I feel as though a child is a product of their environment anyway…You can teach a child right from wrong, install true sayings, but in the end, they are going to do what they want…That can be if you allow them to stay in your home to do so, they rebel and leave or you let them know they will respect you and or get out of your home (bootcamp is essential for the youngins 17 and younger)…

    I mean, I feel as though letting a kid express themselves to you as a parent is the way to go, but making sure authority and respect is there is essential. We can only hope they follow in the right steps of adulthood…

    Hopefully when I have kids, they will know that following a trend is only temporary…I’m only 21 so I’m banking on having about 8 more years before I begin to produce lol

    whats the right way to raise children??? there are so many ways but hey I always stick to…. raise a child the way it should go and he/she will not go astray, and if they go astray they will find their way back…….

    Children are gonna take positive/negative avenues. Despite all the life lessons parents give. At the end of the day its predestined.. All children need is love and boundaries…

    I say parents can raise their kids the way they see fit as long as the child isn’t physically or emotionally abused. Different strokes for different folks and parents may have to parent each child differently.

    Jada and Will believe in a different way of parenting so far its working for them.

    Amen! My kids know that they live in a dictatorship. There is only ONE way and that’s MY way. And if they feel like their life can be better somewhere else, they are free to go. It’s my job to raise them the best way “I” know how. And for me that is for them to be God-fearing, productive, tax paying citizens. Kids need structure and guidance.

Then my grandma whooped me cuz I got in trouble and I was interferring with her watching her “stories” (soap operas). Then I got beat again when my daddy came home. A ninja got beat 3 times all because I was acting up in school. My parents didn’t play that ish. Hell I’m 26 and still can’t talk or do what the hell I wanna do when I go home to visit them.

This is where Bobbi Chris already is and where Jaden and Willow are headed. I’m gonna hold out hope for Brandy’s baby. She doesn’t sound as gone as the other two.

    You see the other problem is..if you didn’t buy your 8 year old a cell phone…just cause he wanted one..then he wouldn’t have the means to call the police on your azz cause you put him in a head lock for dropping a whole gallon of orange juice behind your refrigerator only to slump his plump azz up stairs to his room like aint shyt happen!!!!

    I’m not one for being my kids friend, hitting a child into submission and knowing that child is not going to tell the authorities is one thing, the other is how will a child feel comfortable telling a parent something important in their life or maybe harmful if they fear the one person who is to protect/take care of them?

    The root word in FRIEND is END!!! Friends come and go with the season, Your job as a parent never stops. I buy friends cups of coffee, but my children, they got bought an education. I bought a friend a walmart gift card. I bought my children clothes for their backs, food for their stomachs and a home for their dwelling. There are no friends here.

    IT is my parental right, a mission delegated by God.

    :claps: You did that Gouch!

    I believe you can let your children express themselves or “be themselves” without sacrificing discipline. Children need boundaries…parents are after all, supposed to be preparing their kids to be responsible adults.

I distanced myself from those type of people and therefore stayed on a pretty straight and narrow path. Of course I tried them, and paid the price time to time but who doesn’t test their parents. I think of my parents as friends BUT I know their lead role in my life are PARENTS!!!!!! Would you really want to be best friends with your parents? Like real besties? Thats like being best friends with your boss at work. Some things just have to be separated because when the lines are blurred then thats when chit really happens….Just my opinion of the subject.

    There is a difference between healthy fear and unhealthy fear.

    Healthy fear often leads to respect of my and my rules and the consequences for breaking those rules. I would hope all that would still allow for open communication with my children.

    Unhealthy fear leads to disrespect and rebellion in an effort to prove that you they can’t be controlled by you, the parent, or anyone else. That’s when kids begin to hide chit from you.

    @mean sh!t i go to my momma house and it’s respect all the way she raised my bro a lil diferent ((not as much disipline and boundaries)) than me and he acts an azz to her and i get on his azz my momma is not the young strong mamma i had she wornd out and tired of working and the lil bro THOUGHT he could step that line with her but i beat him back in line :)

    I feared my mama big time, I feared she would beat my azz somethin terrible so I only had to get a few azz whoopins before I got some act right. Those azz whoopins at a young age taught me that I couldn’t do whatever I wanted and that I would respect her

    ___________________________________________________________
    Ms. Suthern..I thank you especially you being an educator..you and I would have def been on the same page regarding my children if you had them in school.

    As Bird stated: I am not a perfect parent…but as I tell my children (even today)…it will not be YOU that will hold me accountable for my short comings as a parent (that is what God is for)…I rule with a do as a say not as I do mentality. My children don’t get to tell me well mom you did A-B-C, cause they will get caught in the jaw with a 1-2-3! fluck that!!!

    Girl I remember one time my son was in jr high and was feeling himself enough to disrespect his assistant principal…the school called. I left work..went to the school..walked straight past the office, went out in the lunch area where my child was congregated with his piers and commenced to beating the shyt out of him with fists of flurry!! He didn’t see it coming!!! today he can tell that story and crack up!! but I tell you what!! I didn’t get called back to not NAR-ANOTHA-SCHOOL!! I was a young mother and didn’t have the privilege, time or resources for make your child your buddy!!!

    Exactly. Ruling with an iron fist doesn’t equal children who are upstanding members of society. My Aunt raised her kids in a strict religious home and they still did what they wanted to do. Her teenage daughter had a baby and her son is an umemployed high school drop-out who spends his days getting high.

    I have to remember my kids are older. My youngest is 21 and I can’t imagine buying her a cell phone at 8. Some kids now and days are very ungreatful. I see too many parents willing to break the bank for little Ray Ray to have the latest pair of Jordons, most schools have a dress code that don’t include Jordon’s anyway. Too many parents do want to be their kids friend for the sake that some parents are afraid of their kids. SMH.

    And while there is no one way to raise a child because every child is different; there are some things that should apply universally regardless of what kind of child you have.

    One of which is teaching your child to respect you and others around them. IMO< being your child's friend in lieu of being there parent and/or letting them do whatever they want won't accomplish this.

    Hell yeah you are borrowing my space! You don’t pay no bills up in here!

    “If it’s theirs, then they should be able to do whatever they want with it. If it’s their clothes, they have the right to do whatever they want with those clothes. We have to give them some freedom to be who they are.”

    You are free to be whomever you want to be, but please know that those are the clothes that were bought for you, you have no money to buy them yourself and you will wear what I deem appropriate until you can do for yourself.
    Whitney really isn’t the poster child for anything other than how to hit all those notes, therefore her opinion on anything otherwise is neither wanted nor needed. (Still love you though Whit :) )
    I totally disagree with Brandy’s philosophy. I am not your friend, I am your mother. We can still have a great parent/child relationship. I will still guide you in the right direction and give you advice when you are unsure. I will buy you all the things that you need and some of what you want. At the end of the day however, you will recognize and respect me as your mother. I’ll play my part and you play yours.

    Brandy seems somewhat child-like to me anyway, so I would expect this sort of thinking from her. Just a child raising a another child.

    Bobbi Christina’s parents are Whitney ‘Crack Is Wack’ Houston and Bobby ‘Freak Nasty’ Brown…’nuff said.

    The Smith’s have got them some talented kids. As long as they remain focused on channeling their talents in the right direction, I will continue to support their efforts. Besides, Jaden can act his behind off and Willow’s first single is tight.

    It seems as if these celeb parents don’t want to set boundaries for their children and give them free reign to do whatever they want. This is going to be a problem for them as adults. Everybody in the real world has rules to follow, as a citizen and an employee. If you can’t get these children to do what you need them to do now, how will they cope when you are gone?

    LOL. My kids wanted the spanking, it was too easy. Grounding was a much better punishment, they have to sit in their room w/no tv etc.. and think about what they did. The punishment is very hard because the parents are also on punishment. We have to make sure if we said you were on punishment for a week that we stuck to it.

THAT BEING SAID, I WAS RAISED BY A VERY STRICT AUNT, I WAS AFRAID TO TALK TO HER ABOUT SMALL THINGS SO IMAGINE WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO HOLD INTO YOURSELF THAT HER HUSBAND WAS CONSTANTLY MOLESTING ME. THAT IS WHERE MY FRIENDSHIP COMES IN WITH MY CHILDREN, I STARTED EARLY TEACHING AND TELLING THEM I AM THEIR BEST FRIEND. THE THINGS MY CHILDREN TELL ME ARE AT TIMES COMEDIC BUT HONEST AND TRUE. NO I DON’T LET THEM RUN ME OR RUN OVER ME. MY HOUSE IS MY HOUSE, UNTIL YOU PAY SOME BILLS YOU HAVE NO SAY SO! I AM NOT SAYING THEY DON’T HAVE ASSOCIATES AT SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY DO.

    WTF? #TheseBichesMustBeIll

    I am TWO MONTHS from 25 and let me tell you something:

    -I was “borrowing” a room up until I had enough money to move the hell out.

    -My clothes belonged to HER. My shoes belonged to HER. My bed, carpet, dresser, etc. belonged to HER and therefore, I had to learn that what I had was a PRIVILEGE, not a RIGHT. She worked VERY hard for it and I had better RESPECT every bit of it she gave to me..

    - My mother was my friend…..that would kick my natural Black azz everytime I got the game twisted and thought she was a “homey” or somebody I could “try.”

    -At 24, I STILL can’t curse around my mother, or aunts, or uncles for fear of getting “popped.”

    These chicks are crazy. No, no no. We didn’t do that at all coming up, and when my kids get here, the same rules will apply. If you want “privacy” and your “own” space- then move the fluck out and pay some damn bills- hell, I had to!

    And I ain’t see not a thing wrong with it. I love my mama, dearly. She did a DAMN good job. I’m 24, no kids, never been arrested, never tried drugs. Her biggest problems were that I debated my stances with my teachers and that I would get into fights with the boys in my schools who would try to touch my hair or butt.

    KrayZKat says:

    My mom gave us a lot of freedom and allowed us to have our space, but we never thought that she OWED it to us, and we sure as hell didn’t tow the line. We had boundaries. What she gave us over and above food, clothing and shelter was a priviledge not a right. I could always talk to my mom about anything, but that didn’t equate friendship. It equated her being my mother, the person who is supposed to be there for her children. She wasn’t my friend. Now that I’m grown, oh, she is definitely my friend, but she’ll always be my mother.

    What’s up with this new fangled parenting where kids are their parent’s equal? Parents don’t want to parent anymore – they want to be popular with their children and let them run the show. People seem to be raising mini-adults. That’s probably why so many children are messed up. I truly believe kids want guidance and discipline.

    As far as these celeb parents, whatever. They have to deal with the consequences of their parenting skills. Nary one of these kids live in my home, so good luck.

    S/N: According to Willow, she’s falling behind in school due to her touring. Maybe Will and Jada should get a handle on that. All the money in the world doesn’t compensate for being dumb (I’m not calling Willow “dumb,” but riches, IMO, is no substitute for getting a good, sound education.

    Now Whitney is a dopefied.. her child has little to no respect for her anyway..so good luck whitney

    3rd: brandy is a single parent.. this is the mistake that most single moms make.. you are not your child’s friend.. they will learn to take advantage of you that way.. she NEEDS to be the mom and the authoritive figure.. you child DOESN’T HAVE ONE BRANDY- GET A CLUE! you are mom AND dad- dummy!

    A parenst job is to teach the child how to be a responsible adult. You do not do that by not setting boundaries or becoming the childs friend. A child should see their parent as just that the parent – yes the child should be comfortable coming to the parent with issues but the parents should not feel they have to be their kids friend to develop that rapport. If your child doesn’t differentiate you from their peers then guess what when they reach those turbulent teen years (especially those girls who can be very fast and rude) they gonna act like you their freind and curse your ass out. All 3 of these idiots need parenting classes. They offer their children no structure, which children desperately need to be well rounded adults.

I’ve read her timeline and she disses her mom’s fans left and right for telling her to stop drinking and smoking. Too bad she’s grown up with her dad’s personality and addictions. Shame.

    There is a fine line between what is acceptable as a parent and what is pushing the limit. I am the product of a traditional nuclear home where one of my parents felt like I was her confidant and counselor since the age of 10. On the negative end his has tremendously impacted my life and relationships. I know things I shouldn’t and have been a part of conversations I shouldn’t have been privy to. On the positive end I knew that I could talk to my parent about anything under the sun with out judgment or condemnation. There is no book that comes with parenting. I believe that you should be a parent first for many reasons and I agree with the majority of post above such as that of belindamays and Anna. However, there is a fine line that shouldn’t be crossed and RESPECT for your self as a parent and your child as a child is important. When I say respect a child I mean YES let them be a child, allow them to express them selves creatively and emotionally, while teaching them how to do it RESPECTFULLY.
