Rule-less Willow Smith

Rule-less Willow Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith admits her and husband Will Smith try not to impose rules on their 10-year-old daughter, 'Whip My Hair' hitmaker Willow Smith.
Willow Smith doesn't have to follow any rules set by her parents.
Jada Pinkett Smith - mother of the 10-year-old 'Whip My Hair' hitmaker - admitted she and actor husband Will Smith try not to impose rules on the youngster, as they would rather "guide" Willow and her actor brother Jaden through life.
She said: "We don't have rules. We come up with agreements. Kids are little people, and we're in life to guide them. Trying to rule someone is always an illusion, and it's no different with children."
Instead, Jada explained the pair try to come up with solutions when they have altercations, such as when Willow went against her mother's advice and set up a page on a social networking site.
She added: "I told her not to, so I was so mad. I said, 'What do you think I should do now?' So Willow said, 'Mom, take my computer away'. And I said, 'How long for?'. She said a month.
"So it's negotiations. I'm not saying it's always perfect. I have my bloops and my blunders. But I'm doing my best."
The actress also thinks it was inevitable her daughter would eventually end up in showbusiness, but she still needs "guidance" to ensure she grows up as any other 10-year-old girl would.
Jada added to Style magazine: "Being part of the family she's from, and working in the industry she's chosen, she needs some guidance. So I'm here to teach her how to look after her later.
"Willow isn't the breadwinner. Most times in this situation, a kid is supporting herself and an entire family. She's not doing it to support a family, so she can do as much or as little as she wants to."
