Angelina Jolie Raising Her Kids as Individuals


Monday, December 6, 2010

Angelina JolieANGELINA Jolie is trying to raise her children as “individuals”.

The Tourist actress — who raises Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, Zahara, five, Shiloh, four, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with partner Brad Pitt – said she wants nothing more for her kids than for them to be comfortable with themselves.

“Hopefully I’m giving my children the sense that they are deeply loved and deeply safe,” Jolie said. “At the same time we are hopefully encouraging their individuality as they get to know who they are, and not getting in the way of that. That’s why they are six very strong individuals.”

The Oscar-winning star revealed part of encouraging her children’s’ individuality is allowing them to develop their own identities and admitted she cannot understand the recent controversy when she allowed her daughter Shiloh to cut her hair short and dress like a boy.

“I don’t think it’s for the world to interpret anything,” she added. “She likes to dress like a boy and wants her hair cut like a boy and she wanted to be called John for a while.

“Some kids wear capes and want to be Superman and she wants to be like her brothers. It’s who she is. It’s been a surprise to us and it’s really interesting, but she’s so much more than that — she’s funny and sweet and pretty. But she does love a tie.”

    Some parents like to give their kids the option to be who they want to be.

    My four year old daughter is just like Shiloh she wants to play army with her brothers. Her toys are toy guns and dump trucks.

    My 8 year son Jeevan only wants to wear military camouflage.

    Just because parents let children choose who it is that they want to be does not make them lazy parents.
