Jada Pinkett-Smith Reveals Her Unconventional Parenting Style On ‘Red Table Talk’

Growing up Willow is a constant n the show and she also opened up about how she felt about growing up in the Smith household

"At 15 years old, Jaden, and I remember this day specifically, it's probably one of the most heartbreaking moments of my life", Jada, 46, shared on her Facebook show "Red Table Talk".

Jada Pinkett-Smith was left heartbroken when her son Jaden Smith chose to move out at 15.

Before explaining her reasoning for giving her then-teenage son the green light to head out on his own, she stressed that "every child needs something different". "He's 15. It's time for him to leave the house'".

Monday's new episode features Jada and husband Will Smith's son, 19-year-old Jaden Smith, as well as the show's recurring guests, their 17-year-old daughter, Willow Smith, and Jada's mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris. While Jaden didn't go through with the emancipation, he did leave the nest.

She said: "I give Jaden props", adding that it was courageous for her son to wear skirts 'being a black young man -- and the son of like an über masculine hip-hop star'.


She explained, "I told Will, 'We'd be lucky to keep will in the house till he's 16 because he's so mature.' He was making films". "I felt like you guys had too much say over your own lives".

"Do you understand, being a black, young man, and the son of like, an uber masculine. he had his feelings on that for sure", Jada says with a laugh, recalling Will's reaction.

Jada and Will's parenting style has often been discussed.

The Smiths have been questioned in the past for their parenting choices, with Will joking in 2016 that their "hands-off parenting" approach may have been a "mistake". "It is amusing, there's a Nirvana lyric that says, 'I shaved my head, and then I'm not sad'". "I wore the skirts so I could look fly", he said. "So as a parent, it's scary, it's really terrifying - but he is completely willing to live and die by his own artistic decisions and he just doesn't concern himself with what people think".
