Jaden Smith Wants to be Emancipated

Because Jaden Smith grew up in a world not called reality, he’s pushing his dad, Will Smith, to give him an emancipation for his 15th birthday. “Just like in 1863,” Jaden probably explained. Reveals The Sun:

Will, 44, reveals: “He says, ‘Dad, I want to be emancipated.’ I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place, like ooh.

“That’s the backlash. On the other side, if kids just want to have command of their lives, I understand.”

He wants to be emancipated so he’ll be able to have his own place. “Wow, what a great idea,” said no parent in the world ever.

Will says: “We generally don’t believe in punishment. From the time Jaden was five or six we would sit him down, and all he has to do is be able to explain why what he did was the right thing for his life.

“I think it’s a much more difficult question to ask someone — ‘Why was that right?’ — than to try to show them why it was wrong.

“Nobody wants to be wrong, all parts of yourself fight like crazy to not be wrong. So I’ll say to Jaden, ‘Why was that the right thing to do for your life?’ and if he can explain why kicking his sister in the chest was the right thing to do, we can see to it that he understands that it wasn’t so smart.”

What I want to know is what happens when Will sits Jaden down and asks about the chest kicking thing and Jaden just screams, “Because this. Is. Spartaaaaa!” I mean, at what point do you just slap the taste out of his mouth. Sigh, parents. They just don’t understand.

I think kids that grow up in a life of being an actor they don’t know what reality is. If the Smiths give him the emancipation I don’t think that he will learn anything, cause the boy’s got money to do what he wants and spend it the way he wants, sure he’ll only be able to get so far in life but it may be a very long time maybe like 20 years and then by then he’ll probably be married and have kids and a house of his own. A life without punishment is no life at all!!!… Read more »
