Parenting Coach to Brit -- I'm Not A Potted Plant!

10/23/2007 2:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney Spears' parenting coach has submitted her report to the court, and it ain't pretty.

Sources say the two-and-a-half page report says Britney totally ignored the coach -- didn't even acknowledge her presence. The coach says she was unable to teach Britney anything, because Spears didn't want to listen.

The report, which was presented to the court yesterday and will be critical in determining if Spears should regain 50/50 custody, concludes that Britney often ignores her kids and lives in her own little world -- that Britney often disappeared and wasn't around the kids or the coach. We're told the coach has said Brit spends a lot of time on the phone and changing clothes.

Stop smearing her. Enough already! So far this report is unfounded. This is a MOTHER AND HER CHILDREN! WTF? You're not helping.

yeah, and this girl is so "helpless"!

She is ignoring everyone because she is a spoiled, little brat that needs to be handcuffed to a bed and not given any drugs or alcohol or STARBUCKS for as long as it takes to get her out of this crazy mindframe that she is in. Ya know, the mindframe that the universe revolves around her and that everyone including the judge in her child custody battle is NOT NICE, or STUPID, or OLD and RETARDED. No, Brit, you are the one who is getting old - really old and you need serious help if these reports are true. Where was this girls mother when she was growing up? Didn't anyone teach her about respecting herself or others?

I just feel so sorry for those two boys - especially the baby Jayden! He's so cute and seems truly helpless. Grow up and be a MOM! PLEASE.

"Poor Britney"??!! F-that Poor kids. Many of you have no idea what it is like to be raised or around a neglectful parent. I hope you never do know that pain but I can say I do and it sucks. I hope those children are put in a stable home. Say what you want about Federline but before Britney neither he or his ex had issues like that. Its obvious he has the more stable home life to provide.

I am not surprised that things are going this way.. she does live in her own world she is under the impression that her children are accessories too. as useful as underwear.. I mean really -

She doesn't get it,, and i seriously don't know what this is going to end up like. I can't imagine the court giving her overnight again, if she keeps this up no one not even her own family has anything nice to say about her parenting . She should take all the help she can get the judge although she doesn't think that he is doing her any favors he has given her chance after chance to make this right and she is in all fairness pretty much laughing at him.

Actually the coach, if allowed, could have helped the Village Idiot, by teaching her how to relate to her children, understand their needs and present herself in a better light. Apparently, the Village Idiot is to impaired to accept help for herself or her kids, she will have nobody to blame but herself when she loses custody. I wonder if the coach suspected VI was high, ie the behaviors of changing clothes and not being around. Time to go out and tap another pap.

Funny that TMZ is now changing the story. On Oct 12th they posted this from "a source" about the monitor:

"TMZ has learned that the monitor who has supervised Britney's visits with her kids told the court the interactions at home are nothing abnormal -- with a little exception. Seems the monitor has noticed Britney goes to her room a lot to change clothes!"

So she went from finding nothing abnormal to being britney not paying attention to the kids over a 1 week period.

If she wasn't around the kids during scheduled visitation, what in the world makes anyone think she should have more time with them. She has done everything in her power to prove she doesn't want them. The judge should give it up and quit giving her chances. That way, at least the boys have a little more stability and don't have to be taken back and forth to someone who doesn't want them.
