To Tweet or Not to Tweet the Children? That is the Question!

“Paris can stand on her own…she won’t take anything from anybody. She fights. She’s tough, very tough.” – Michael Jackson

I generally do not read Paris Jackson’s tweets since I do not and would not read my own daughters’ tweets unless they were specifically addressed to me however many of her tweets get retweeted on my page.  I am amazed to see this young lady’s dignity, caring and general kindness toward others who, I feel, have been somewhat cruel and unfair to her.

The one tweet that particularly caught my eye was this one:

“Are you aware that @rockofages movie makes fun of @michaeljackson in their movie? #boycott

Her reply to this tweet was:

“A lot of ppl do… its jealousy dw about it”

In my opinion I think this tweet was one that should never have been sent to Michael’s sweet young daughter as it brings attention to what we want to keep the public from watching if, in fact this movie does have a negative connotation to it (I apologize for putting this on this blog but I needed to be exact) and secondly, why would anyone want to bring that up to someone who loves him more than life itself.

I was amazed at Paris’ reply.  It shows how well-adjusted and how intelligent she is when it comes to these type of comments.  It must have caught her eye because she rarely  responds to the statements and/or questions she gets tweeted to her account unless it is a friend.  Mrs. Jackson has shown us what a wonderful job she is doing with all of her grandchildren and how she had to unexpectedly, take over a parenting job later on in her life.  God bless her.  She has taught the children well.  Michael’s name has been dragged through the mud on so many occasions and these children handle it with grace and dignity.  On this Mother’s Day I would like to say God Bless Katherine Jackson on a job well done. Michael knew exactly what he was doing when he entrusted his most precious “gifts” to his mother.

I can see that Paris is passing her knowledge of what her father and grandmother have taught her on to “fans” who need to remember that this is a girl who has lost her father.  Maybe we should all consider what we put out on twitter and especially who we direct it to.  I have to believe that not one MJ fan or advocate would want to hurt his children in any way so please think before you “tweet” or “speak”.  Maybe we can all learn something from her… “don’t worry about it”

    It is our opinion that Michael’s fans should not be even following much less, engaging his children in conversations on twitter. She is a young woman who should be allowed to have friends that are her own age to interact with and enjoy her time. We know that her father was never allowed the luxury of just being a normal child, adolescent, teen or adult.. His whole life under a microscope was something that bothered Michael. So why can’t his fanbase allow this lovely daugher of his to live a life that can be as normal as possible? This goes for Prince too …and Blanket as soon as he becomes active on Twitter. To bring to her attention hurtful and hateful things directed at her father is both insensitive and unnecessary. The fact that she behaves with such maturity is testament to Michael’s parenting. Under the glare of the media, he still managed to impart to them the importance of manners, compassion, and empathy. They are his finest legacy.

    As usual MJJP so eloquently put. IMO these children need to be left alone! Thanks for your comment!

    Couldn’t agree more. I don’t follow Paris on twitter because first and foremost I don’t feel that Michael would want it. But even if you chose not to you can’t avoid them because there are numerous re-tweets. I wish Paris would have a private twitter account just for her to interact with her friends instead she has 300,000+ of her fathers fans hanging on her every word, I’m just surprised that she isn’t faced with even more abuse.

    Great article and great question SGAA.

    To Tweet or Not to Tweet. Good question SGAA. Personally, I see not need to tweet to Michael’s children or any child. I don’t think adults should be conversing with children on social networks unless they have the permission from the parent(s) or guardian(s); and even with the permission what is the purpose of conversing with children? It can only get you into trouble and the children don’t really have any idea who they’re connecting with. The majority of the adults who communicate with one another on these social networks don’t even know one another, personally.

    Paris gave some wonderful wisdom to the person who tweeted her that junk. Wisdom coming from the mouth of a baby has long been foretold in the Holy Scriptures. Paris said: ‘Don’t worry about it’. Good advice, Paris, even though I know you and your brothers’ still hurt from the physical loss of your father and comforter; but what’s more hurtful is people reminding you of the evils of this world. I’m sure her father has taught the children about the evils he had to endure. He may not have shared every detail with them but he told them what they needed to know. The children aren’t crazy and they’ve searched the internet enough to find out many things.

    I, too, wish the children didn’t have twitter and facebook accounts, but they have curiosities just like other children. They want to know and the internet has a wellspring of information to be shared. It is up to the adults to leave the children alone and let them be children. I see nothing wrong with sending the children well wishes or special occasion messages, but anything other than that should be avoided. I am of one opinion and have no control over what other people do but that is what I would do. I have no desire to talk to any child on the internet but my own grandchildren and that is only if they are getting into mischief or I see danger.

    We get you Paris and we won’t worry about it. Thanks for the advice.

    I know that it’s not fair for people/adults to be following her or the others I am following her but never commented this poor girl I was away from her page for about 30 minutes and the poor girl had 599 messages, then 5 minutes she had another about 200 I hope she blocks most of them because they don’t realize she is just a child still and don’t deserve to be bombarded with her dad’s fans watching her every move, they did the same to Michael but not on twitter he couldn’t even walk out the door without at least 100 camera’s in his face. LEAVE THEM KIDS ALONE let them have their own peers/classmates/friends etc. they don’t deserve this, I know the fans mean well but they have to realize Michael wouldn’t want it like this. I follow her and Prince but NEVER tweeted either one of them. they are kids.

    I think it is a real shame that some fans feel that they need to suffocate Michael’s children with their love. The children do not need to be tweeted to or anything else. Paris should have a totally private tweeter account to avoid certain people. I don’t go on twitter that much; I can’t be bothered with all the nonsense on there.

    Thank you everyone for your comments, its good to see that the MJ Community are in agreement that PPB should have their own life and let them live it in peace. xoxoxox Love and light everyone!

    No definitely not. Paris has already said she is shutting down her picture sharing as people (I believe she means her father’s Fans) make a big deal out of everything. She sounded much like the typical teen to me. I know she gets more than enough intrusive and derogatory comments from her peer group without adding adults to the mix.
