Some young stars have really lived in the fast lane and not all of them by choice! This isn’t necessarily fair. Child stars don’t really have much of a chance. They are so young when they first become famous so it’s pretty inevitable that some of them will get into trouble. Many of them have learned from their prior mistakes and have gone on to become upstanding citizens; however, it doesn’t change the fact that they were robbed of a childhood. We have created a list of 7 celebrities who have either said that they feel that they have grown up too fast or those who obviously have. Enjoy!
7. Willow and Jaden Smith
Willow and Jaden Smith have not had a conventional upbringing. Unlike most school-aged kids, they get to do whatever they want. They don’t go to school and their parents – Will and Jada – treat them more like adults than like teenagers. “We respect our children the way we would respect any other person. Things like cleaning up their room. You would never tell a full-grown adult to clean their room, so we don’t tell our kids to clean their rooms,” Will said in an interview.
When a photo surfaced of a 13-year-old Willow hanging out in bed with a topless 20-year-man, Will and Jada were not at all concerned. The California Department of Child and Family Services was and they launched an investigation into the Smith family as a result. Most people agree that the family is doing Willow and Jaden a disservice by not treating them like kids and we totally agree!Christopher Halloran / Shutterstock.com
