We talked with psychologists about the best way for her to tell her kids & the affect it will have on them. If you have a secret from your past you need to share with your kids, this advice can definitely come in handy!

Angelina Jolie has always been upfront about her wild past, but the release today of eight shocking kinky photos means she will now have to sit down and discuss some of her past choices with her six children. The humanitarian and amazing mother she is today is a far cry from her crazier days, so what is the best way for Angie to convey this to her children?

Dr. Jeff Gardere, psychologist and host of VH1’s Dad Camp, says it is key for Angelina to not be embarrassed or ashamed about her past choices in front of her children. “She may not be proud,” he explains, “but she can say to them, ‘This is real life and here is what you can learn from it.'”

As for the age he says to wait until the children are older, around fifth grade, and explain to them that their mother has had “an interesting life” and have the talk, “out of reality and not out of shame.”

Also key is that partner Brad Pitt is with her when she has this talk. “When the spouse is involved it shows that there is support and that they stand by one another as a family.”

Dr. Susan Abbott, a New York City child psychologist, echoes many of Jeff’s opinions. “She needs to try and portray this as positively as possible so that it doesn’t effect the children’s security.”

“She needs to say to them, ‘I’ve made some mistakes and I’ll teach you to do things in a healthy way,’ then discuss healthy and unhealthy behaviors,” Susan explains.

As for age and Brad’s involvement, Susan agrees that around 8 or 9-years-old is ideal and also thinks Brad should be involved. “It is important to see parents as a united front to increase their sense of security.”

If done right, Susan says this can even be something for the better. “The kids can walk away with a sense of pride in their mother and the knowledge that she knows right from wrong.”

What do you think of this advice, HollywoodLifers? We’d love to know what you think!

Came across this site by mistake with a search for serious psychologist opinions about parenting. Yeesh! There are actually morons that read this dribble? This is the garbage that is causing our major newspapers to fail??

Notice the “great” journalism where Dr. Abbott is quoted and the “authors” of this article use the word -effect- when they should have used the word -AFFECT. Even my 5th grader knows that “affect” is the verb.

How you people even have jobs is beyond me! I direct that to both the readers and the “authors” if they dare call themselves that.

AJ has spoken frequently about her past, but also acknowledges that nothing has changed. She admits that she still does the same things and has the same interests that she’s always had. She doesn’t feel anything she’s done in the past is inappropriate or bad. In fact, she seems to be offended that anyone thinks thinks she should have changed. After she made a public display of kissing her brother, she was given an ultimatum to either keep those things private, or her career would be over. Of course, she decided to change the exposure of what she still does. As Mr. Pitt tells us, it’s all about smoke and mirrors. They give the public what they want. She still is being very honest.

One: AJ has never pretended to be pure as snow

Two: Andrew Morton has made a living out of being a lying jackal

Three: In this day and age, those photos really aren’t that racy. Give it a couple of week and Miley Cyrus will be sporting the same look.

Four: Everyone does dumb stuff when they’re young. I’m sure it seemed like a great idea at the time.

Enough said!

This will just ADD to the LEGEND OF ANGELINA JOLIE….and it will actually show how strong she is, to have overcome such wild and unconventional behavior. It also adds to her allure. GO ANGIE!

This is silly. The children will be shielded from that type of thing for a while. When they grow up and become exposed to this sort of thing, the parents can use it as a learning moment. ‘Mommy was sad and empty and did sad and empty things. Daddy and I tried to raise you in a house of love and stability, so you wouldn’t feel a similar way when you grew up. We did the best we could. We hope you can come and talk to us about your feelings. I hope you feel you can trust us.’

We should all be so lucky to have parents like these two, but like all parents, they are not perfect.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock Angelina has openly talked about her past in interviews. She’s even talked about it in several of the Salt interviews. So saying this book and photos is forcing to talk about her past is ridiculous. She’s not embarrassed or ashamed at all. What I don’t understand is why people are so up in arms about Angelina’s past but nobody cares about Robert Downey Jr, Britney Spears, Nicole Ritchie, etc pasts. Nobody writes stories about how will they explain their drug past to their kids.
