Jaden Smith was announced as the new face of Louis Vuitton womenswear. Will Smith laughed his famous self-deprecating laugh and declared that perhaps he and the missus had been too lax with the boy. No shit. Will Smith was brought up Catholic in working-class West Philadelphia and it drove him to become a top selling rap artist, TV actor, and movie star despite churning out largely mediocre product. Why not raise your kids the exact opposite of what worked well for you? Your children are ripe for life-destroying blind experimentation. The results are in. Your son is an asshole trading off the family name to book cross-dressing gigs. Take heart in the fact he has chosen his own path and that he’s already reached clear at the Center. That’s all any dad could ever ask of his son. Also, that he not mix stripes with patterned knit skirts. That’s pretty lame.
