Jamie Lee Curtis on Paris Hilton

Finally, amidst the endless commentary over a celebrity being in jail, being out of jail, and then being back in jail but with more crying and angst, comes something constructive to deliver the blogging world from the attention grabbing black hole that is Paris Hilton.

Jamie Lee Curtis shared her thoughts on the subject in a recent post to her blog on the Huffington Post.

"It was a painful episode to watch. A young woman, begging her mother, the person who should have taught her right from wrong, to help her, to teach her the rules of life. It was a little too late. And so she wept as the Universe was bringing the teaching and settling the score."

Why aren't more people criticizing the Hilton parents? I don't know much about their parenting techniques, but one look at the life of their daughters Paris and Nikki Hilton and doesn't take much to understand that what they tried was mistake. You can't rich your children into mature responsible adults.

"Children are paparazzi. They take your picture mentally when you don't want them to, when you don't look good, and show it back to you in their behavior."

When I watch my own children behave during the normal routines of their lives I hope to see a reflection that makes me proud. One that lets me know that when my kids grow up and move out onto their own, they will be equipped with the confidence and ability to make good solid choices. Mommy and Daddy Hilton just wanted to be sure their girls went out in Prada.
