Jada Pinkett-smith - Jada Pinkett Smith Not A Controlling Parent

Jada Pinkett Smith isn't worried about her daughter Willow Smith growing up too fast.

The 39-year-old actress insists she thinks giving the 10-year-old singer and her brother, actor Jaden Smith, 12, freedom to express their creativity and make their own choices is good for them.

Jada - who is married to actor Will Smith - told Closer magazine: "I see my children as little people, not necessarily people to control. You've got to help them develop and become individuals. You have to find out who they are but enforce boundaries to keep them safe.

"She's simply being creative. I'm not worried about her growing up too soon."

The 'Hawthorne' actress admitted she loves being a mother and has found it easier to put family before work as she's gotten older.

She said: "I'm very clear about what my priority is and that's my family. I used to struggle juggling work and family at the beginning. It's hard when you change from being single to being married to being a mother.

"But now I'm turning 40, I've found a peaceful compromise. I feel very content."
