    Well um... well you know... those parts.

    Seriously, I just wanted to smack both her parents. It's almost understandable why Jada has turned out to be such a loser.

    No it isn't how most children are but boy it seems that way in today's world. My kids couldn't stand her on the show, said she was clueless. She was. She is the type of person who will never see anyone's side but her own. She isn't capable. I see a grown-up version of her in many reality shows!! To update her story, I work with a person who went to high school with her mom and said that her mom was a spoiled girls too so she probably has no clue how to raise her daughter. Blind leading the blind!! It is sad really.

    Not in my family it wasn't. Nor was it that way with any of my friends. I'm the first to admit that I was spoiled as a child... still am (at 36!). BUT, I also never would have disrespected my parents (or anyone else) the way Jada does. I was a good girl - came home by curfew, didn't sneak out, didn't talk back (too much) and certainly didn't steal money and buy drugs with it. I was raised to respect my parents and had to follow the rules of the house.

    Jada's parents don't spoil her, they allow her to bully them. They have zero parenting skills and are "ruining" their daughter. By not giving her any boundaries or teaching her discipline, they are setting her up to fail. What employer is going to want to deal with her?

    Jada's behavior may still be considered "cute" or "cool" by her friends but in 10 years, no one is going to want to deal with that cr@p. If she's still acting this way as an adult, she will find herself all alone.... or still sponging off her clueless parents.

    If you do a google on Jada and Karyn Chabot, you find that her mom has a "Sacred Stones" website. (One of the pdf files says the photos by "Jada and Karyn Chabot", so I know we've got the right mom.)

    Hey, I could be totally wrong, but my suspicion is that Mom, a New Age-y type (not that there's anything wrong with that per se), and Mr. Chabot felt they would be stifling their child's spirit by setting boundaries as she was growing up. They wanted her to experience her world free of nasty ol' limits, so she could be free to explore her inner Jada, etc. Rather than disciplining with concrete unpleasant consequences for inappropriate behavior--no dessert, no cell phone, etc.--they probably were fairly tolerant and just tried to talk things out, like Jada was an adult instead of a kid who actually needs to experience a consequence for wrong behavior. And if there was a consequence, again, I suspect they tried hard not to make it too tough so as not to "crush Jada's spirit".

    I assume the Chabots generally lean toward being permissive as a life philosphy, and as I've said before, I think that's a comfort zone they're not too keen on stepping out of.

    Again, all just my conjecture.

    This is why I think spanking a child should always be done, or some sort of negative reinforcement to the same effect. My parent's never hesitated to put the fear of God in us, and I must say we were pretty well behaved, albeit we did become teenagers and test our limits, but who doesn't? The difference is, when kids like me pushed our limits, we were pulled right back down to earth, but apparently Jada's parents are letting her orbit space.

    I'm of the positive reinforcement philosophy myself.
