    Angelina has earned my respect. I didn’t care for her but she has become a better person & i’m glad she’s trying to make the world a better place. Amman is a wonderful city & Jordan is the best country in the Middle East!

    Why do they celebrities keep draggin those kids across the world???
    I understand that it is good for children to meet new cultures and such.
    But Brad and Angie (and Madonna) keep draggin those kids all over the globe, don’t those kids have school or something?
    And yes i know it is summer now, so no school for those kids.

    I am not going to attack. These are their children. In this world you get to raise YOUR children the way you chose too.. it is not open for debate. She and Brad have made these decisions on how to raise them.. It is to use a phrase… NO ONE ELES BUISNESS.. Parents in this country have choices. Some send their kids to public schools, some use private and others HOMESCHOOL their kids.. Brad/Angie have decided when necessary they will HOME SCHOOL thier kids.. Just like MILLIONS of Americans and others across the globe. If this is not the choice you would make fine. Send your kids to the school you want.. But how do you think it is your business to judge how these two people raise their kids..( and I am quite sure your disproval is ONLY give to Brad/Angie) do some research.. there are other celebs wo homeschool.. but of course they are not Brad/Angelina..

    Point is if they have it under control and are not asking you or the other critics to pay for their travel or take care of their kids.. then what business is it of yours and why does it bother you so much.? Why do you care?

    Maybe the other jp fans can make a list of other celebs who travel with their kids and a list of the celebs who work months and months away from their families.. not seeing their kids much at all.. Brad/Angie have both said that they keep their family together.. TOGETHER.. I think (JMO) that the kids care more about seeing Mommy and Daddy then that they are in a school.

    Take care of your own kids and watch as Brad/Angie take care of their 6.

    ivecometoterms Says:

    Wow! They really are broken up! :( They do nothing together anymore. I don’t think it’s healthy to stay in a relationship just for the kids. ?? I think Angie will be much happier on her own. Their relationship sounds toxic.

    29th International Arab Children’s Congress Focuses on Children’s Security 12 July 2009

    Amman, Jordan (12 July 2009) – The 29th International Arab Children’s Congress (IAAC) took place from 5-11 July under the theme “The Right to Protection … Whose Responsibility?” under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Noor. Nearly 140 teenagers aged 14-16 from seventeen countries convened in Amman to discuss the well-being of children in light of risks such as war, pollution and the global financial crisis. This year’s guests of honor were Lebanese singer Najwa Karam and Jordanian actor Zuhair Nobani.
    “By bringing together young people from all over the world at a stage in their lives when they can begin to appreciate common values within their diverse perspectives, we hope to lay the groundwork for a more respectful and cooperative world,” Queen Noor said.
