Jada Pinkett-Smith opens up about raising kids in Hollywood and keeping them in a drug-free home.
Like any good mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith knows what it takes to keep her family and marriage on track.
The gorgeous rocker-turned-mommy recently opened up to Redbook magazine about raising kids in Hollywood. Having a chaotic upbringing herself, Jada says she plans to guide Willow and Jaden through any temptations in showbiz, starting with a happy, drug-free home.
“Let me tell you what I fear most,” she said, “Them growing up like I did, in a house with drugs in a war zone, where if I walked out my door I could be shot…I’d rather have my kids here. It still makes me nervous that they’re part of something that isn’t totally real, but it’s up to Will and me to teach them what’s real and what’s not.”
We definitely agree, Jada — keep up the good work!
