It’s no secret, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith allow their children — Jaden and Willow — freedom when it comes to expressing themselves.
In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1xtra, Will discusses how he raises his teens joking that he may have given too much room for expression:
That may have been a mistake, we may have gone too far.
When discussing how people may clown Jaden for wearing women’s clothing, Will says,
There’s a really powerful internal quality as an artist that as parents we encourage. You gotta get out on the edge, you have to try things, you have to be comfortable doing things people don’t agree with and comfortable doing things that you can fail.
He says that Jaden is,
100% fearless, he will do anything. As a parent, its scary, it’s really terrifying, but he is completely willing to live and die by his open artistic decisions and doesn’t concern himself with that people think.
