Justin Bieber’s Mom: ‘I’m Letting Him Be Independent’

40th Annual American Music Awards - ArrivalsJUSTIN Bieber‘s mom is trying to give him more independence.

Pattie Mallette says her relationship with Bieber has undergone a fundamental change since he turned 18 last year.

“When your kids hit a certain age your parenting style changes and it is hard letting go,” she said.

“His life was my life and now I’ve had to let him go a little bit and let him be independent. It is hard to not be able to control everything that your adult child does.

“A lot of people might think that I have my head in the sand or that I am oblivious to the things my son is doing.

“I know who my son is and I don’t always agree with every single thing that he does, but I don’t necessarily have to address that with everyone else.

“He’s my son and I have to respect he is not going to want me going around being ‘that mum’ talking about his behavior.

“You don’t know all the expectations and the things that are around him, so I have a different view. I’ve learned from watching him and how he has been able to handle things.”
