Jaden Smith, son of Will and Jada, recently asked his parents if he could be an emancipated minor, so he can live independently from his parents. Will revealed that Jaden made the request when his father asked what he wanted for his 15th birthday.
"He says, 'Dad, I want to be emancipated,' I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place."
During his interview with The Sun, Will also explained the parenting route he and Jada chose to raise Jaden and Willow.
"We generally don't believe in punishment. From the time Jaden was five or six, we would sit him down, and all he has to do is be able to explain why what he did was the right thing for his life. I think it's a much more difficult question to ask someone —'Why was that right?' — than to try to show them why it was wrong."
Do you think this is a good idea for Will and Jada?
