Willow Smith Isn't Given ANY Rules From Her Parents

willow smith doesnt have rules

If Willow Smith wants to whip her hair wildly back and forth during family dinner, she technically can, because she has NO RULES!

Her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, has admitted that her and Will try not to give their daughter rules, and instead have other methods of parenting.

Here's what Jada had to say about it:

“We don’t have rules. We come up with agreements. Kids are little people, and we’re in life to guide them. Trying to rule someone is always an illusion, and it’s no different with children.”

Here's Jada on an example of how she's dealt with an "altercation" with Willow, when the 10-year-old set up a page on a social networking site against her mother's advice:

“I told her not to, so I was so mad. I said, ‘What do you think I should do now?’ So Willow said, ‘Mom, take my computer away’. And I said, ‘How long for?’. She said a month."

And more from Jada:

“So it’s negotiations. I’m not saying it’s always perfect. I have my bloops and my blunders. But I’m doing my best.”

And more:

“Being part of the family she’s from, and working in the industry she’s chosen, she needs some guidance. So I’m here to teach her how to look after her later. Willow isn’t the breadwinner. Most times in this situation, a kid is supporting herself and an entire family. She’s not doing it to support a family, so she can do as much or as little as she wants to.”

Negotiations or agreements instead of rules, eh? We're thinking that might work out SOME of the time…but there may be some circumstances where rules can do a child good!

Do U agree with the Smiths' parenting method? Or do U think it could use some work?

    Well for her to say she doesn't give "rules" is a lie. To tell her child she can't have a social network page would qualify as a "rule" in my book!

    SHE IS A TYPICAL BLACK–NO DISCIPLINE, NO MORALS, JUST ACTS LIKE A TOTAL ANIMAL

    BLACKS DONT KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE AND THEY DONT KNOW HOW TO RAISE KIDS WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE ALL STUPID, UNEDUCATED, PREGNANT OUT OF WEDLOCK AND ADDICTED TO DRUGS

    The way i see this, it works for some and not others. I think it all depends on the child. On eof my moms friends had three children, that were all raised this way by the same mother; however because one of them, the only daughter, new this and new how to exploit it, she did and took total advantage of it amd is currently a drug addict about to go to jail for shoplifting. However the middle son is very well rounded because he never took advantage of it, and followed her mothers guidlines and was never in trouble. The youngest child was sort of in between the first and the second. This sort of parenting ONLY works on children who do not take advantage of it. You have to have well rounded children with well rounding thoughts and opinions. Or else it doesnt work. However you need to ALWAYS know that you MAY have to jump in and make rules if they get out of hand. You have to willing to take control of your child if necessary, because yes they are little adults but they are also children.

    Also i agree that unfortunatly in society unfortunatly a vass majority of younger generations are not as polite as they should be. Not very many teengers open doors and hold doors, and say thank you, and please, but there are still some that do and it is always a breath of fresh air from one person who likes to be as helpful to everyone as possible. Unfortunatly most children raised have a 'fend for myself' attitude, and are deffinatly not used to trying to be nice or thankful. It all depends on your own attitude, your own thoughts and opinions, and the way your parents raise you. You can not pinpoint why a person is the way they are based off one thing alone. Some great parents have children that are very mean and unthankful; and then another that is just as they raise them to be.

    Re: Les – Oh how I sincerely apologize mister education, forgive me for not enjoying racially degrading comments….if you didn't notice, I have no problem with the negative comments but more the comments that attack a little girl on the basis of her race. Sorry but my FOUL language has nothing to do with my lack of education although I'm sure you'd like to think that it does. The funny thing is I knew some moron would make a comment like that because it's an easy attack but go ahead by all means…..

    "SPARE THE ROD AND SPOIL THE CHILD!!"… I BELIEVE IS HOW IT GOES. LEMME' SEE?… OH YES HERE IT IS: "He who spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him correcteth him" (Proverbs 13:24)
    OR THIS ONE: "Withhold not correction from a child: for if thou strike him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and deliver his soul from hell." (Proverbs 23:13-14)
