Mommy's Crying: A Look at Britney Spears' Meltdowns and Their Impact on Sean Preston, Jayden James

by at . Comments

After imploding on the MTV Video Music Awards, being dumped by her manager (Jeff Kwatinetz) and lawyer (Laura Wasser), and being forced into counseling in order to keep custody of her sons, Britney Spears is facing her darkest days.

Unfortunately, her problems aren't just affecting the 25-year-old pop star, reports Us Weekly in its cover story - they're having a negative impact on her two children, Jayden James Federline, 1, and Sean Preston Federline, 2.

"Dealing with the children after they come back from Britney's is really hard on Kevin," says a source close to Kevin Federline. "Sometimes it takes three days to get them back on any type of schedule."

And it turns out Britney Spears' friends and family aren't the only ones who have expressed great concern over the singer's (disturbing lack of) parenting skills.

In a closed hearing on September 18, the L.A. Superior Court issued a list of rules Britney Spears must follow to maintain shared custody of her children.

These stipulations include meeting with a parenting coach for a minimum of eight hours a week, and having supervised sessions with counselors and her children.

Yet at least one family source actually tries to defend Britney Spears, saying a lack of education is to blame for her recent problems.

"She loves her children so much, but she's never been taught how to properly take care of them," said the source, claiming a maternal bond seems to be missing. "She looks lifeless. It's like she doesn't understand the impact of being a mother."

Boy. Thank goodness The Hollywood Gossip staff writers all went to college and took classes to learn that partying every night is not the way to be a good mom.

I don't understand why you people don't leave her alone. There is are mothers that are 10 times worse than Britney. I feel sorry for her, she can't do anything without someone taking a picture of it. Just think of how many parents run red lights. She is just being pointed out because she is famous. This just goes to show that money doesn't make happiness because you people are making this girl very unhappy. Kevin was probably the cause of this break up and now she is the one suffering for it all. All of you Media people need to get a life and stay out of hers..... I have a child of my own and I couldn't imagine what I would do if this was happening to be. I feel so sorry for her. All of you media who have children, when you go home to them tonight think about how you would feel if someone was trying their best to catch you doing something just to have your child taken away. LEAVE HER ALONE!!!!!!

I think it's bull crap about the Kevin's nanny's taking 3 days to get the kids back on schedule. I mean, give me a break! Brit has more than enough money to pay nannys to have the kids on schedule no matter what she does. When she ALMOST fell with her baby, did they even bother to ask if she stepped on a crack?!?! Is it against the law to wear heals and carry a child? I think they are following the tabloids and picking her life apart. Kevin has a great attorney that Brit is paying for!!!!! Your in our prayers Brit. Get it together and enjoy the time you have with your kids. You'll have them back because Kevin is a piece of shi*.

Hopefully now that the kids are gone, people will stop being angry at her and just forget about her completely. She's used up. Let's move on to more important people. I hate to say it but she just made some cash for the industry. Now she's a liability. They should use that cash and invest it in others who can better hold their public image. Brit is a commodity that is no longer worth it's weight. Throw it out and get a new one, Hollywood. No use hoarding old crap that doesn't work anymore.
