The parenting coach assigned to Britney Spears confirmed in court what we pretty much already knew - that Britney ain't exactly a candidate for Mom of the Century.
The monitor, one Lisa Hacker, submitted to Commissioner Gordon a report which asserted, among other things, that Britney is not "child-centered" in her interactions with SP and JJ. Said Hacker's report:
During three of my visits, Ms. Spears rarely engaged with the children in either conversation or play. ... It seems that her choices are dependant more upon what she wants to do at any given time, rather than what would be more enjoyable for the children.
Not to disparage Ms. Hacker who I'm sure is good at what she does, but duh.
We already know that Britney does whatever Britney feels like doing and couldn't care less what might be fun for the kiddies. This is demonstrated every time Britney drags them out shopping with her, or takes them when she's going to the rehearsal studio. In Britney's self-centered, childish little mind, whatever's fun for her must be fun for everyone else. She's simply incapable of grasping the concept that parenting is about giving up what you want for the sake of the babies.
Hacker did concede that Britney seemed to improve in the fourth session - so perhaps Britney's capable of at least temporarily assimilating new information and adjusting her behavior accordingly. However, the report was damning enough that Commissioner Gordon saw fit not to give Britney back 50/50 custody.
So, the Britney custody drama goes on. Where's my cyanide?
