I'm not here to destroy Britney. I'm here for the kids.
Think about that for a second. Do we as adults--especially those who are parents--keep this in mind when we go about our lives? For the non-parents who aspire to one day have children...do you live your life for the sake of your future children? Barretto's idea about proper parenting models should hit us with a strong epiphany-like force.
We as parents cannot do anything that we want to around our children. Britney's toddlers are at the core part of the critical years of a human's life. Everything they smell, hear, taste, see, touch will affect their brain development. When Spears curses, smokes cigarettes, walks around naked in front of her boys, and takes them to her favorite night spots late at night, possible shearing of brain cells and brain cell connections are taking place. Any possible negative stimuli is adversely affecting them. It may even be happening at an incalcuable rate which makes it even MORE important to pour on the positive experiences while reducing the negative stuff.
We as parents must make sure to saturate our children's lives with positive, nurturing experiences. These are deliberately done; we cannot leave them to chance. In Spears case, she must deliberate keep positive, warm people around and interacting with her children. If she does not (or cannot possibly) want to give up her habits, she must at least keep them away from her children and keep herself away from them when she's doing them. By doing this, synaptogensis (creation of brain cell connections) will move toward its ultimate fulfillment ensuring that her children's "hardware" is being put together for optimal operation when they get older.
I'm glad the bodyguard spoke up. Spears behavior, unfortunately, has already caused some damage in her kids. Fortunately, their youth makes any damage quite reversable. They, however, need a change in lifestyle as earlier as possible. Once they get past age 5, "a point of no return" in the way they see their world will have come and gone.
