Angelina Jolie is one of the world’s most famous mothers. Not only is she an international superstar, but she’s also a mother who has a wonderful family made up of a combination of biological and adopted children.
Over the past two years, Angelina has been in the media spotlight a lot, thanks to her impending divorce from Brad Pitt, the father of her six children – Vivienne, Pax, Maddox, Shiloh, Zahara, and Knox. However, in that time, what has become apparent is how well she has raised her children.
Although still young, Jolie’s kids are incredibly well behaved and well-rounded. They’re in the media spotlight a lot, and always appear to be impeccable young people. Following their parents’ separation, the Jolie-Pitt kids have publicly supported their mother at all manner of events.
In September 2017, Jolie told people: “We all have our difficult times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids. They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that.”
The Jolie-Pitt kids are all well-rounded people, but what has made them this way? They have grown up leading a privileged life, so what is it that has made them so grounded, and wise beyond their years?
As parents, Angelina and Brad are rarely criticised, unlike many other celebrity parents, and that’s because of how they parent. They provide their kids with a stable background and a happy family life, even now, after they’ve seperated that is still the case.
The Jolie-Pitt clan have been seen on all kinds of family outings over the years, from shopping days and trips to watch sports matches to trips abroad, it’s clear that the Jolie-Pitt kids have been brought up by their parents, and not by a nanny.
Like their parenting style? Then plan to do fun and exciting things with your kids, whether that means booking concert or sport tickets or planning trips to local attractions like the zoo, for instance, it doesn’t matter. What’s important is that regardless of how busy your schedule is, you make time for your kids.
An understanding of what they have
Something that the Jolie-Pitt kids have, that many other celebrity children may not have, is an understanding of what they have and how fortunate they are. As a family, the Jolie-Pitts have spent time in many third world countries and have a great understanding of how privileged they actually are, which is most probably why they are so kind and caring.
This something that Angelina’s kids demonstrated by attending various events with her last year and showing her their support at each. From her speech at the UN Correspondents Associated where she was supported by Shiloh and Zahara, to the premier of First They Killed My Father: A Daughter Of Cambodia Remembers, Jolie’s kids are highly supportive of their mother, just like she is of them.
