Willow and Jaden Smith

Mentoring MJ's Kids

5/25/2011 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jaden and Willow Smith didn't just bump into MJ's kids on a movie set in L.A. yesterday -- TMZ has learned, it was all set up by Katherine Jackson ... to help nudge her grandchildren in a positive direction.

Sources close to Katherine tell TMZ, she believes the Smith children are prime examples of young success in Hollywood -- both extremely talented and down-to-earth -- and thinks Prince, Paris, and Blanket could learn a lot from them.

According to sources, Katherine wants to surround her grandchildren with role models like Jaden and Willow -- so she set up the meet-and-greet ... and we're told, the kids got along like a house on fire.

Katherine wants Michael's kids to enjoy their childhood -- and is actively encouraging them to become involved in all kinds of activities ... including acting.

Even after being gone almost 2 years, the King of Pop can still make it to #1 on the billboard charts. I think this is amazing. MJ's music will live forever. Their is no comparison.

Kids doing fun things is always good and its nice that all the adults are positive roll models. The adults making time for these kids to get together have a direct impact on all these kids staying positive and growing into confident individuals.
Lots of Prayers & Love you more

MJ's kids are always going to be famous no matter what they do. They didn't ask for it, but that's how it is for them. It's good that Katherine is trying to help them handle the fame by letting them hang out with Jaden and Willow who are used to handling the fame. Katherine is very smart. If Michael was alive, there would have been less need for this because they would still have had his guidance on it but seeing as he's not here anymore, Katherine I think has made the right decision for them.

@Janar-Apparently you know nothing! Are you really that stupid? First you say the kids didn't inherit MJs talent then you say they do have their fathers talent...which is it?
Prince,Paris,and Blanket ARE MJs biological children and they already show the talent they inherited

Just make sure they don't indoctrinate them into Scientology as Michael ran away from that group when he was married to Lisa Presley
