Jada Pinkett Smith Addresses The Haters

Recently, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have been taken a bunch of criticism from outside sources who feel as though they are exploiting their children by allowing them to enter show business. Of course she has the right to defend herself and she definitely did that! Check out her statement:

"Our children are allowed to stay in the paradigm of being a child. They don't have to take care of their families: become the complete emotional, physical, and financial focus that happens to many child stars. Our family structure is a little different and it's quite hard to comprehend because it's so outside what usually happens in a family, but the paradigm is the same... This isn't about fame or money. They were still going to have their trials because of who their parents are. As much as I wish I could figure out a way I could protect my children, they have their destiny. I'm not going to put brakes on that out of fear...I have a 10-year-old who can stand up in front of an audience of 17,000 and rock the house. I have to keep her grounded."

Well said Mrs. Smith! I completely agree with her. There is no reason for anyone to accuse her of exploiting her children. As she stated, it's not exactly as though her family structure is dependent upon her kids success. I find it very respectable that she is letting her kids live their dreams, despite what others have to say. I think it's so important that the young people are able to follow their hearts desires. Before you take shots at anyone, think about the situation and how it differs from yours.
