If you ask us, parents should be celebrated every single day, after all they are on call 24/7. However, today, June 1, which marks the Global Day of Parents, is the perfect time to tell them you care. Especially since parents are always finding their parenting styles being scrutinized and judged. Not even actors are immune – here’s a look at couples in Hollywood whose interactions have been hotly debated in the media at one point or another.

Angelina Jolie: This actor is all about the individual. She homeschooled all her children and they were allowed to pursue a more unconventional education where they pursued their interests. "I do think we live in a different age and the education system hasn't caught up with our children and our way of life," she told ‘The Independent’ in 2011. "But we travel and I'm the first person to say, 'Get the schoolwork done as quickly as possible because let's go out and explore'. I'd rather them go to a museum and learn to play guitar and read and pick a book they love."

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith: This couple has been in the headlines over many events, and in terms of parenting style, too, they faced a lot of backlash. The couple revealed in 2013 that they followed a ‘hands-off’ parenting style, letting their children Willow and Jaden Smith make their own decisions as much as possible, and they ‘didn’t do punishment’. Supporters of the parenting style got into the debate saying that such a style would let children make their own mistakes and learn from them to pursue productive passions and habits. Despite negative headlines aimed at the couple and the children, the Smiths stood by their parenting choices.

Kylie Jenner: Kylie Jenner's parenting style is one of financial indulgence. Being the first-born to one of the richest influencers in the world comes with unique perks. Stormi, Jenner’s three-year old, has been photographed wearing diamond jewelry and has a closet full of designer clothes, and her very own miniature designer handbags. The mother of two is known to spend lavishly on her daughter’s over-the-top birthday parties as well.

Gordon and Tana Ramsay: The ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ host and his wife are all about teaching their kids the value of working hard – and that means not handing over perks such as first class flight tickets. Gorden told The Telegraph in 2017, "They don’t sit with us in first class. They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that. At that age, at that size, you’re telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not. We’re really strict on that." Above: Gordon Ramsay(left) and his daughter Megan Ramsay (right).
