According to the website Fans of being a Mom, Justin Bieber’s mother/ momager Pattie Mallette is doing a wonderful job not only raising her son, but raising a Super Star. Here’s an excerpt of the post:
As Justin’s fame rises, do your responsibilities as a mom change at all?
Mallette: The responsibilities change somewhat, and I have to adapt as a mom. For instance, I can’t ground him if he misbehaves. I have to be creative – taking away privileges like computers and phones. My bottom line responsibilities are to keep him safe and grounded. That means I need to discipline him when he needs it – in whatever way works.
How does it feel as a mom to see your son achieve so much success and accomplish his dreams?
Mallette: I am so proud, and so happy for him. As a mom, it’s amazing and emotional to watch your child achieve his dreams and such a high level of success. Anyone would be thrilled to be in his position. I burst with joy for him. Of course, there are concerns; but for him, I am thrilled.
As we begin a new year, what is something you wish for Justin?
Mallette: For 2011, I want Justin to continue to follow his dreams, to continue to shoot for the moon. I don’t want him to think that anything is unachievable.
Each mom is kind of programmed to worry about her kids. What are your biggest concerns for Justin?
Mallette: Because he has so many people catering to him, my biggest concern is keeping him grounded. I remind him constantly that he is no better than anyone else. My worry is that he might mistake all the manufactured things around him for reality.
