Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie: We Do Have Parenting Rules

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, A pal of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have said the pair raise their kids with strong 'rules' and consequences for misdemeanours.

The source, speaking to People magazine, said the Pitt-Jolie household - which is made up of Brad and Angelina and their six children Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, six-year-old Zahara, Shiloh, four and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - mainly gets along.

'[They] are both good with rules, and there are definitely consequences, like time-outs, for bad behaviour,' the unnamed friend said. 'But for the most part the kids all get along.'

'The family live in a way that can best be described as organised chaos,' the pal added. 'Of course it's wild when all the kids are there, and evening tends to be a bit chaotic with dinner and bedtime.'

Hmmm, surely Brad and Angie's fat Hollywood pay cheques go someway to easing the chaos with an army of staff though?
