During one of her live Red Table Talk episodes, Jada Pinkett Smith opened up about her kids’ dating lives! One of her friends, Duane Martin, was a guest and she shared with her and the audience that she hasn’t always been Okay with their choices in significant others! However, it sounds like, nowadays, she is a lot more hands off.
‘There have been a few I have been concerned,’ Jada shared, adding that she hasn’t actually been worried about her daughter Willow but about her son Jaden with husband Will Smith and his other son Trey, 25 who she also parents.
‘Actually, Willow, her choices have been spectacular, in all honesty.’
Although the woman did not reveal who exactly out of the two sons had the problematic dating history, she did share how she and the rest of their family members were able to get through the issues.
‘You got to go with the flow. Your kids are not always going to date people you love, but I have learned that you really have to just be there and support them, because [if you don’t] that can create a conflict that you cannot get around.’
As fans of Jada’s Facebook show know by now, she and her loved ones have been very open about many personal things.
That being said not too long ago, Willow and Jaden confessed they were pretty disappointed about the way their mom and dad handled them when they reached success as kids.
As she was tearing up, Jada concluded: ‘You know what? I think parents need to give themselves a lot more forgiveness. When you become a parent, you have enormous ideals, even for yourself, because we all are coming into parenting with our own childhood traumas. And you are hoping you can fix all of that through your rearing of your children, and you cannot. Your kids are going to have their burdens. And even though I see how it might have hurt you, it is what I knew.’
