Jermaine Jackson

Paris Jackson Needs

Discipline

070213_jermaine_jackson_launch
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.

Stupid ppl    

This coming from the same a**hole who can't even pay child support , and if it anybody child needs some serious discipline is bad a** son of his who tried to shot blanket with a stun gun (aleast Paris didnt try to hurt anybody). Sounds like a whole lot jealous going on here to me.No wonder MJ was so messed up in the head it makes sense why he kept his distance too.FYI you don't beat on a deeply disturbed emotional child you moron ,but you wouldn't know now would you?, don't even take care your kids.Anybody notice these Jackson's think they are too good to get job.

Hmm.. let's see who genuinely cares about Paris.
Her mom has been in and out of the hospital and even reached out to Paris' fans, letting everyone know that's she's okay. A few Jackson family members went once or twice to visit and have went to this stupid Cirque Du Soleil show, plus this law suit going on, and now Jermaine saying this?? **** you Jacksons, you're all drunk.. go home. And btw.. Jermaine you need a bra.
I'm praying for you Paris!! xoxo

Jermaine Jackson has no right to be mouthing off that lackadaisical discipline is the source of Paris's psychological issues. Her issues stem from extended family members making a grab for her dad's money; one of whom is Jermaine Jackass Jackson.

Dude, with respect, respectfully?


Doctors, the UCLA medical staff, child experts?


Disagree and vehemently.


In fact even going ON record and saying this?


Guarantees Paris will never be back with y'all.


A better response might have been:


"We're ALL dysfunctional - we were RAISED by broken people -"


"Thus UCLA and their great Medical Staff/People."


"Are our ONLY chance/hope."


We need to COOPERATE with the experts.


Jermaine's response was/is no different -


Than my own broken parents/remaining siblings:


Who famously opined "Ivy League behavior experts have no CLUE as to what they're doing."


Except that I had one -


Was in treatment with one.


For childhood trauma which included a slashing.


It wasn't your fault, Jermaine.


It wasn't Janet's, it wasn't Tito's, it wasn't LeToya's.


But we can't, we just can't ...


EVALUATE our own mental wellness/illness.


Let ALONE another's.


We'll come off foolish, stubborn, clueless.


Trying to evaluate, judge - dooms us -


- cuz "Loss of insight" occurs early-on -


Thus my extended families STILL very sick -


...Always will be (pending treatment).


Rigid and inflexible in their DEFENSE of monsters.


Denial -


"They (monsters) seemed FINE to me..."


Uh, so did the BTK Killer - and to neighbors.

"Seemed fine, got up, went to work, etc..."


I learned from my own ordeal/treatment.


How gullible we all were and are -


How easily fooled, duped, manipulated.


I was as guilty as anyone - maybe the dumbest one.

Gee.... What family may be influencing her that would give her any ideas about having no discipline and dramatic outbursts? What's next a complete sense of entitlement based on nothing and never working?


Is Paris and the other kids going to start looking virtually flammable like the rest of the family soon too?


Get those kids away from that family.


Of course, remember, Paris is a 15 year old girl and 15 year old girls sometimes have a hard time dealing with things.


The reason why they they don't have a father is because that father couldn't resist drugs. Sure Murray deserves blame but MJ never resisted. If after the first, second or thirtieth time MJ said "NO!" he'd probably still be around.

He's such an uneducated jerk. It's a far bigger problem then discipline. Ya, lets hit her to health. What a moron.

At least Jermaine has a good relationship with his children and is close with them. Jermaine's kids are grounded kids and teenagers, and one way or another, Jermaine has always provided for them and made sure they are ok.

Thriller! It's about time Jermaine Jackson say's something worth a read/listen. Act like a kid, be treated like a kid, Paris. "Don't Blame it on the Boogie"

I think all of this are the Jacksons fault, if they hadn't filed for that lawsuit, that s***bag Wade Robson would never had come out with his claims and Paris wouldn't get bullied. Stupid Jacksons, what the hell are you going to do with 40 billion dollars?

Jermaine JacksUn is a joke, he is no one to talk about how to raise kids when his own were on the internet using his credit card to order stun guns to zap Michael's kids with, he doesn't even pay child support half the time, LOSER.
