Witherspoon Wants Kids To Taste School Disappointment
Actress Reese Witherspoon hopes her kids don't get special treatment at school, because disappointment is character building. The actress hates the idea of eight-year-old Ava and Deacon, four, being protected from the realities of life in a trendy school that refuses to pick winners and losers. The Walk The Line star says, "That's one of the most formative experiences. I wouldn't want my children to miss out on any of that teasing and bullying. "It kind of makes you who you are - when you don't make it onto the soccer team. It drives me crazy when everyone wins the award. "I remember the two weeks of crying because I didn't make the team. It makes me interesting."
