Jolie, who is raising her kids with partner Brad Pitt, said encouraging the kids' sense of self-expression was an important part of their upbringing.
"Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth," she said, before adding: "Society always has something to learn when it comes to the way we judge each other, label each other. We have far to go."
Gah. To repeat: Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them. Because that’s such excellent preparation for real life, isn’t it?
Then again, if you grow up the child of famous parents with lots of money, maybe it is. Reminds one of this, from last year:
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's bad night at the BAFTA awards got worse when the trophy-less pair got back to their London hotel to find four of their kids running riot, the Sun reports. Guests at the Dorchester hotel complained about the noise as the nanny struggled to keep the unruly brood under control. "They were running up and down the hallway for over an hour," griped one guest.
People complained? But that was self-expression going on.
