Making Peace:

By tackling the tough questions with honesty, parents can help kids deal with the Brangelina baby. More than mere acceptance of the Brangelina baby, together you and your child can work toward embracing it and making peace with its dominion over our planet and its cannibalization of our inner lives. Remember, moms and dads: Children, like movie stars, are just like us! With a little TLC they'll get through this just fine. We all will. It's what the Brangelina baby would want.
