Angelina Jolie may have an odd parenting style to some when it comes to her children calling the shots, case in point, Shiloh and her transformation into looking like a little boy. Angelina says she has a very strong willed 4 year old and this is how she chooses to dress, right down to her tom boy haircut, according to Comcast News.
The kids would come early with her on the set for Salt, before others got there to spend some team with Mom. The kids would love to play with the fake blood and put the wigs on to play dress-up. She would also put them in the halters and let them fly around the set like “Mommy” does.
Early in the morning Angelina could often be found with the twins on the set playing with the fake blood.
Angelina said that she and Brad take turns working so when one is on the set, the other parent will bring the kids to visit them. This is one way they have become a “united front” says Jolie.
It seems that Angelina needs to go on the defensive about the way her daughter Shiloh dresses, and she says she is letting her express herself. She is not going to make “Shiloh keep her hair long because someone out there says she should. Shiloh was crying when she first wanted her hair cut this way, so it was cut this way”.
As for Jolie’s odd parenting style – maybe the only thing that is odd is that she has not won a mother of the year award yet. It sounds like each of the kids are encouraged to be individuals and as far as playing with fake blood….. What a great way for the twins to get use to the fact when they see their Mommy or Daddy splashed with this stuff, that it is only play and they will not get excited or worried for their parents.
Angelina and Brad sound as if they are doing great and doing all the right things to bring up a healthy family while needing to travel the world for their jobs. One parent is always with them and the kids likes and dislikes are respected, way to go!
What do Angelina and Brad do when they want a night on their own together? Angelina says no one sleeps in their home at night that is not part of the family, so every one or two weeks, they have a child caretaker stay overnight with the kids and they lock themselves in a room on the other end of the house to be alone. Another healthy relationship move on their part.
“My daughter cried and cried 30 years ago at 4 years old because she wanted to be called “Jimmy” and have a hair cut like her brother. I cut her hair , she would only wear overalls and we called her Jimmy. This went on for a few months and then she became my Lidia again. She is a lawyer today and has led a very rounded and healthy life. She dresses like a glamor girl now , but she wanted to be a tom boy when she was younger. We are who we are and it sounds as if Angelina embraces her daughter’s individuality, good for her”, said one Connecticut Grand mother.
