Jermaine Jackson

Paris Jackson Needs

Discipline

Paris Jackson does NOT respect authority ... so says her uncle Jermaine Jackson ... who insinuated that P's cutting incident was an overreaction to being told she couldn't go to a concert.

TMZ broke the story ... Paris was hospitalized last month for slicing her arm with a meat cleaver ... after she became upset at being told she was not allowed to attend a Marilyn Manson concert.

Sources say Paris'  issues stem from her father's death -- which she's had a very hard time dealing with ever since he passed in 2009.

But when we ran into Jermaine in Calabasas yesterday, he told us ... issues be damned, Paris still needs to learn she can't always do whatever she wants.

"[Paris] has to learn there are certain guidelines when you grow up being a teenager," Jermaine said ... "There are rules."

But Jermaine isn't just pointing the finger at Paris ... suggesting P's guardians are to blame -- "I just think that ... things could have been enforced a little stronger."

Jermaine never named names ... so it's unclear if his issues are with T.J., Katherine, or Michael himself.

I agrees with Jermaine, i think they have given those kids to much freedom, to do what ever they want. Paris is too grown for her age, just look at the tape how she was talking to Janet.It a bad idea for Paris to go live with Debbie, the story about her cutting herself didn;t come out until after her started visiting Debbie,

And god knows you are doing such a wonderful job with YOUR kids you douchebag. Wasn't it one of YOUR boys that held a stun gun on Blanket? And of course we know that you are up-to-date on your child support, right?

It's horrible that her own uncle has such outdated thinking about her situation. I really hope that Paris gets the help that she needs and that she ignores these uneducated comments by her uncle!

Thank you Jermaine for being more public about your disdain for Michael's children. We saw you denigrating Michael's children here in the TMZ comments. Now, you're just saying it on camera. So, Jermaine, are you and your psycho sister Janet the ones sending awful comments to MJ's kids all over the internet to gas light them? Interesting how Janet just had to take that phone from MJ's daughter when she used twitter to expose the filthy Jackson siblings in the Katherine kidnapping debacle.

Discipline. As in the Joe Jackson type of discipline. What Paris Jackson needs is to move far away from the freak show and money grubbers' that she shares a roof under.

Its not easy raising a teenager. I understand what he is saying and they do need to respect adult authority. Its a tough job raising a teen for sure.

PHK U tmz, Michael had those kids well mannered and disciplined better then any kids of today. He never even had to yell at them to get them to listen to him. Katherine is at fault for this and only Katherine for not adhering to her sons wishes. We all know he'd be beyond pissed at everything thats happened since he's been gone. SHAME on Katherine and SHAME ON YOU FOR TRYING TO BLAME MICHAEL. You just can't admit that he showed the world that he was a better dad then you or anyone could ever imagine.

This coming from the man who wouldn't pay child support to his ex but instead let her and his sons live at Michael's mansion with his mother so he wouldn't have to pay a dime of spousal or child support! He's a real loser as a father,husband,brother and son!

Finally, someone spoke with honesty and with the truth! I 100% agree with Jermaine. If Paris had had some rules and guidelines enforced now she wouldn't be in the empty hole she is now. I hope they put her in rehab for at least two years.

That sounds about right! I hate agreeing with one of the Jackson's but it sound correct. I bet she is a bit of brat and I bet it has gotten worse since MJ passed. Pitty the poor orphan thing going on within the family. I bet thats why she ran off to mommy's house.
