Raising a child in the Hollywood limelight isn’t the easiest thing, some celebrities get it right while others completely blunder. With Jaden Smith’s cross-dressing being the talk of most tabloids, Will Smith was asked about his parenting skills when it comes to his son and daughter Willow.
During an interview with BBC Radio 1xtra the actor admitted to giving them a lot of freedom of expression.
“Yeah, I think it may have been a mistake. I think we may have gone too far.”
Will Smith further went on to talk about Jaden’s fashion style and how he handles it,
“There’s a really powerful internal quality as an artist that as parents we encourage,” the fresh prince responded. “You gotta get out on the edge, you have to try things, you have to be comfortable doing things that people don’t agree with, and you have to be comfortable doing things that you could fail.
“And Jaden is 100% fearless, he will do anything,” he added emphatically. “So as a parent it’s scary, it’s really terrifying – but he is completely willing to live and die by his own artistic decisions and he just doesn’t concern himself with what people think.”
