Lynne Spears Is a Self-Apologist
Lynne Spears might not be above dishing intimate dirt on her daughter Britney in her new autobiography, but the authoress seems willing to cut herself a huge amount of slack.
In her recently-published mommy memoir Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, Ma Spears defends her choice to let her daughters dive into show-biz at such early ages.
“Was I the perfect mom? No,” Lynne writes. “Every mother makes mistakes, and I’m no different.”
Ma Spears continues, “I think you have to let them follow their dreams. I think it would be worse in the end if you didn’t.”
Sure; kids should be allowed to do whatever they want pretty much directly out of the womb, no matter what the potential pitfalls. Children are pretty much self-sufficient, right? Many of them have been known to start their own successful businesses before the age of three.
Someone in the Spears clan is dreaming, but it’s not the kids.
