Nothing is ever normal in the life of Suri Cruise, is it? From the high heels and lipstick to the tantrums in the street, it is all so very 'show biz' and 'drama queen' - including this latest story about the daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise!

It would seem that parents whose children attend what will be Suri's new school (an exclusive $40,000-a-year school in New York called Avenues which offers a 'global curriculum') are worried that THEIR children might be mistaken for her and hounded by the press...

Education Consultant Dana Haddad told The New York Post that she'd had 'two different parents call to tell me their children are beautiful young girls that look like Suri', and that when the girls were all in their informs, the other mums and dads were 'worried their daughters will be mistaken for Suri by the paparazzi outside the school.'

Wow. Obviously there are some safeguards other parents could take to prevent this happening: one, dress your child in a coat - then obviously she will not be Suri. Two, do not send her out in red lippy and painted nails - again, so not Suri. Three, dress her in flat school shoes - Suri will no doubt choose glittery dancing shoes with heels to jazz up HER school uniform. Four, avoid giving your child phallic shaped sweets to munch on in view of paparazzi - another Suri trait.

Really though - can parents REALLY be this obsessed about their little darlings that their fear their 'beautiful young girls' are going to be mistaken for Suri?

If your child was at school with the child of a famous parent, would this EVER cross your mind as something to worry about?
