Will and Jada raise their children differently…


Will_Smith

In a recent interview Will Smith says African-American parents believe they “own” their children as a result of slavery…

“I think that, specifically in African-American households, the idea of coming out of slavery, there’s a concept of your children being property and that was a major part that Jada and I released with our kids.

“We respect our children the way we would respect any other person. Things like cleaning up their room, you would never tell a full-grown adult to clean their room, so we don’t tell our kids to clean their rooms. Actually, we tell our kids ‘you don’t have a room, that’s our room and we are letting you borrow it.’

So the same way you would say to an adult if you let them use car, you say, ‘Yo man, clean my car! Don’t drive around all filthy like that!’ And it’s perfectly reasonable for you to want an adult to clean your car, so we feel it’s perfectly reasonable to ask our kids to clean the rooms that we are letting them use.”

Will and Jada are ridiculous and when I read the story to my mom she said and I quote… “They’re full of shit!” It’s bad parenting bottom line.

  1. This is what works in my household. My house, my rules. I’m not a single parent, so you’re allowed to voice your opinion much more than I would allow if there was another adult in the house. You may even win a few arguments. But since I’m the one feeding, cleaning, teaching, instructing, defending, raising and loving you, you will do as I say. My child is being raised, not dragged up. I just wish more children were.

  3. I don’t think he thought about what he said before he said it.

    I know black parents, me included, who tell their children to clean their rooms because the room belongs to the PARENT, not the child. I do not know black parents who tell their children to clean their rooms because the children are considered property.

    THERE IS NO CORRELATION to Smith’s statement and the point he is trying to make. He needs to focus on promoting that movie instead of degrading black families.

  4. Your rich Bitch…..now STFU.
    I agree children should learn to think for themselves, but as a parent than what is your job? Your job is to guide them in what you know best. And nurture then in what they love best. Till then you are the parent and you run the show.

  5. How very BLACK of you Mr. Smith. Black men are the first to down their race. You never hear white people, putting done their race, that because they know that people are diverse. Not all black people have a slave mentality. I’m gonna guess your talking about yourself.

    People in all races are diverse in there thinking, and how they raise their children.

    Mr. Smith please save your comment till, you kids are successful and about 35 years old.

  6. A parent will have to do the thinking for their child.
    Many successful athletes, musicians, and business owners, owe it to their parents for thinking for them.
    How many regret not listening to their parents?

  7. I agree with Willard to a point. The problem with many parents (black parents especially) is that they no longer want to PARENT. Whether it’s absolute laziness or a conspiracy by the Powers That Be to control every aspect of our lives, it’s completely destroying this generation.

    Even second-generation children of immigrants who are assimilated have more ethnic pride than African-Americans. This generation is fighting self-hatred. We are not as proud to be Black like our people were in the past.
    We are only proud to be Black when it’s CONVENIENT.

  16. Sorry Will, you dropped the ball. Psychology is not your strong point. Not to say that Slavery didn’t impact on the parent child dynamic of Blacks in this country. But your children do belong to you. That’s the problem now, parents don’t want to own their children.

    Slaves, how can we even begin to imagine what they endured. I’ll never forget.

  20. The way the last generation raised us is still a great way to raise this generation. The problem is society has turned pussy (just like Bernie Mac alluded to in ‘Kings’). So now you have a generation of kids that have the nerve to tell their parent(s) that they’ll call the cops on em over an asswhoopin.

    Some of today’s parents are just chickenshit and won’t take a stand. But if you are truly in control of what’s going on with your children in your household, that shit cannot be penetrated by retarded thinking.

  21. I understand challenging your children to behave more maturely, but Will and Jada are laughable with this shit. But you won’t find no black folk living a regular day to day life working 9 to 5s and bustin’ they ass to make ends meet subscribing to this bullshit.

    Nobody’s sayin’ you have to absolutely spank your children as a form of punishment, but the vilification of parents that don’t spare the rod is just modern day American fuckery. Anyone who looks sideways at me for spanking my children can go drown with that shit..

    1. What’s wrong with children today is a lack of parenting. Governments and the media ate raising most children. If nothing else give them credit for doing the job and not leaving it to the systems that have failure ingrained in them that prevent what many children need from reaching them.

  27. I don’t agree with Will’s comment about black people perceiving their kids as “property” and I don’t think I ever experienced that from my mother. I simply don’t agree with that, but I do agree that any parent must find a medium, a balance to parenting. I think that should be the goal of any parenting. I just believe that this “balance” should not exclude or frown on spanking that ass as an option.

    1. The point of parenting is to bring the child to maturity. Which is different for every family. We do what we must to make that happen. Some people use newfangled ideas without regard to the society they will enter as adults. There are somethings that are standard for instance not sparing the rod which means don’t. spoil the child, but the rod in Its place can save the child from a lifetime of heartache.

  30. Spiritually speaking I think they’re kind of on point. You may really shy idea of ownership on your children but that doesn’t negate the whole training piece. Spiritually speaking they have guardianship over them and that leaves the minds in tact to develop a different kind if thinking in them. Loving does not imply ownership on any level but the responsibility of training and guidence means that you must exert a degree of control because they don’t know any better. I Agree that their way of training has some valididty but we should not use them as a standard for child rearing. Accept that they do things differently and call it a day.
