Classroom Snooping

October 23, 2007 permalink

The following gossipy clip about the Britney Spears celebrity child custody case illustrates a point that we can never report in more mundane cases because of secrecy. When child protectors send parents to parenting or anger management classes, the instructors are not there just to teach. They are gathering evidence for the adverse party. It works because persons sent to class by compulsion, such as Britney Spears, rarely have a positive attitude toward the instructor.



Parenting Coach to Brit -- I'm Not A Potted Plant!

Posted Oct 23rd 2007 1:35PM by TMZ Staff

TMZ has learned Britney Spears' parenting coach has submitted her report to the court, and it ain't pretty.

Sources say the two-and-a-half page report says Britney totally ignored the coach -- didn't even acknowledge her presence. The coach says she was unable to teach Britney anything, because Spears didn't want to listen.

The report, which was presented to the court yesterday and will be critical in determining if Spears should regain 50/50 custody, concludes that Britney often ignores her kids and lives in her own little world -- that Britney often disappeared and wasn't around the kids or the coach. We're told the coach has said Brit spends a lot of time on the phone and changing clothes.
