Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s seemingly wonderful and strong marriage is reportedly on the rocks, but experts say they won’t be the ones who will suffer the heartache — their kids will.

The news of Russell Armstrong’s suicide has shocked us all, but no one will be more affected than his estranged wife Taylor and her young daughter.
It’s hard enough to help a child deal with a parent’s death, but when suicide is involved, it’s that much worse. Experts say Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong should let her 5-year-old Kennedy know that her daddy, Russell Armstrong, has passed on and is no longer with her, even though Taylor’s initial reaction might be to hide the news from her for a while. Experts say therapy is the key to Kennedy’s recovery, especially due to the circumstances of abuse, divorce and suicide. Do you agree?

Just when we thought Charlie Sheen‘s situation couldn’t get any worse, it does. It seems like all he has time to do these days is appear on television and talk about his “war” with CBS and his “Adonis DNA.” But, who is watching his 1½-year-old twins Max and Bob, while Charlie is off shooting interviews and mommy Brooke Mueller, who lives in the house, is MIA? His two girlfriends and the “goddesses” of “Sober Valley Lodge,” porn star Bree Olson and “nanny” Natalie Kenley. Charlie says the two have “completed the three parts” of his heart. Wow.
Lately, more and more kids are cozying up to their parents in bed and staying that way, night after night. Do you think that the co-sleeping trend is a good thing? Experts say it’s time for these children to move out of the king-size and into their own beds!
It seems that the latest parenting trend among mommies is a little thing called co-sleeping, when family members — that’s including you, Dad! — share the same bed. Many argue that this method, also referred to as the “family bed,” is a great bonding experience and wonderful for women who are nursing. But experts say kids should sleep in their own bed. Some parents disagree. Are you one of them?

Dealing with a teenage daughter isn’t exactly smooth sailing, but when you’ve got 18 kids? Forget about it! The stars of the TLC reality show Sister Wives — Kody Brown and his four wives (Meri, 39, Janelle, 40, Christine, 37, and Robyn, 31) — have got to be stretched to their limits keeping up with so many kids, but their problems with their rebellious teens have reportedly gotten a lot worse since the show’s premiere on TLC last month. “The daughters seem messed up from this situation,” a neighbor who lives near the Brown’s Lehi, Utah, home tells In Touch. “It is no wonder that the teenagers of the Sister Wives family are rebelling. They are living in a surreal world where they are being told that it’s natural and wonderful for a man to have several wives,” Beverly Hills celebrity psychiatrist Dr. Carole Lieberman tells HollyBaby.com.

Reports suggest that Brooke was jealous of Charlie’s relationship with his daughters Lola & Sam from his previous marriage to Denise Richards, but experts say that she was actually green-eyed over his ex-wife!
The release of the police report detailing Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller‘s domestic dispute on Christmas Day last year revealed that couple’s argument began when they fought over Charlie’s close bond with one of his daughters from his previous marriage to Denise Richards. “Mueller was jealous of this relationship with his daughter,” the report reads. “The catalyst for this argument began when he shared a song for his daughter, whom he fathered by another woman!” But experts tell HollywoodLife.com that there is a deeper issue that caused the battle — Brooke’s fear that Charlie still had feelings for his ex-wife Denise!

A number of factors contribute to today’s problems faced by suicidal children of celebrities.
The recent and tragic suicides of Marie Osmond‘s son Michael Blosil and former Growing Pains actor Andrew Koenig have us here at HollywoodLife.com wondering why children of celebrities appear to be especially prone to depression, and eventual suicide.

If you think your pal is getting too wrapped up in her relationship, like Brittany Murphy did with Simon Monjack, here’s how to set her free!
If you’ve ever noticed a good girl friend going down a bad path by alienating everyone around her, like Brittany Murphy may have done, then please, act now! Nip it in the bud! Our expert, psychiatrist Dr. Carole Lieberman, M.D., fills us in on how to help your bestie break free.
“Brittany Murphy’s tragic death is a reminder of what can happen, and too often does, when a bad boy ostracizes a woman from her friends,” says Dr. Lieberman, who notes, “All one has to do is trace photos and interviews of Brittany throughout the past years to see how she became a shadow of her former vivacious, adorable self and changed into an emaciated, depressed, broken woman. She reportedly even had a ‘pharmacy’ of prescription medications and had complained of physical symptoms for over a week, yet her husband seemingly did nothing to get her medical attention that could have saved her life.”
Bottom line, ladies: don’t let your friend alienate you. She may not know it, but she needs you more than she can say.
