Parenting In Public
Pop icon P!nk and her husband Carey Hart have had to deal with plenty of opinions online when they're public about their children. The internet nitpicking got so bad that P!nk even turned off the comments on her Instagram account for a while after people were especially harsh about their parenting techniques.
Encouraging Their Kids To Be Themselves
However, the dynamic couple have pretty much decided to march to the beat of their own drum with their parenting, and it seems to be working out well for them. Their kids seem to be pretty awesome, especially 7-year-old Willow, who recently got a punk rock haircut. Hart posted about her new look on Instagram, expressing his pride over the girl she was becoming.
"Remember everyone, fly your own flag. There is no box to be put in. It’s better to be your own self. Own it, and love it. And if anyone has a problem with it, tell them (politely) to move on. Cant wait to see the woman you grow up to be. I have a feeling you are gonna be strong, fierce, [compassionate], and caring. I’m so proud of you, Willow."
While haters may have been critical about the Harts' parenting in the past, fans were mostly enthusiastic in their comments on the post.
"There’s no one that flies that flag better than your amazing wife—so it’s not shocking your daughter does the same!"
"You're raising such a bad ass young lady!! You're letting her be her own person and that's the best thing you can do as a parent. Good for you two."
"The love and support you guys show your kids is top of the list and it's what she'll remember and return to when life gets nuts"
This isn't Willow's first foray into cool hair -- she dyed it blue earlier this summer -- and it probably won't be the last with such rad parents.
