Chaz Bono Offers Parenting Advice To Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

Cher’s son Chaz Bono thinks he can help offer useful tips to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in how to raise a tomboy – referring to the couples daughter Shiloh, who’s been in the media’s eye for her short haircut and boyish clothes.

Chaz told E! News,

“I would love to talk to them (Brad and Angelina) at some point, to at least let them know we have this resource for them if they ever need it. I relate to these kids. The difference between them and myself is that I didn’t articulate it and fight for it and say, ‘No, no, no! I’m a boy!’

“I have so much respect for these kids that do… People get too freaked out about kids and what to do with kids. If you just let kids do what they need to do they usually have the right idea.”

How do you feel about Chaz reaching out to Brangelina?  Should he mind his own business, or should the couple seek his advice?

Chaz Bono Never Doubted Mother’s Love

Cher’s son, Chaz Bono, never doubted how much his mother loves him while he struggled with adapting to his new identity.

“She has this personality of being so kind of cool about stuff and progressive but people forget that she’s a parent,” Chaz said.

“The truth is a lot of parents never speak to their transgendered kids again. That’s not the case in my family. There’s no doubt about my mother’s love for me.”

Part of Chaz’s struggle was re-learning how to be with his partner Jennifer Elias.

“We had to really almost re-learn how to communicate and how to be around each other,” he said.

“Things had changed. Just me saying the same thing that I would have before with a deeper voice and more of a presence.”

“Suddenly things didn’t mean the same thing to her. And so we really had to, you know, adjust our – how we did things and relearn how to be together.”

“It was really hard,” Jennifer added.
