20. I was uncomfortable at the idea
that the child's father has been gone for four months, and she is now on a cross-country promotional tour with her mother. While I'm sure the mother is a very nice person, I think she's in shock of her own.

>But I just think kids ought to be able to be kids without that amount of pressure on them.<

I was told after the deaths of both of my parents to NOT make major decisions for a year, and I was 30. It turned out to be very good advice. Obviously, I'm not her, and I'm not her parent. I fail to understand why Bindi needs to be making appearances on network television right now when perhaps the best thing may be to spend some time with her family, and as mentioned above, spend some time just being a little girl.
