Tori Spelling needs to keep it real for her children

I was shocked to read the headline this morning that Tori Spelling's husband, Dean McDermott, has cheated on her with Emily Goodhand. It was surprising to me as an ediTORIal blog subscriber, since this last week I received several beautiful Christmas pictures of their family in my e-mail Inbox. Mimi Dabo, Celebrity Headlines Examiner states that,

Tori is obsessed with having a picture perfect family, and thinks it’s a big part of her image.

It is time for Tori Spelling to keep it real. As a mother of four children she is doing no good to them by keeping their family picture perfect. Putting a smile on your face in front of them and fighting behind closed doors is not a healthy home environment. As a parent the behaviors you display in your home will set the stage for how your children will behave as adults. They learn what it means to be married, how to be a husband or wife and how to effectively (or ineffectively) deal with conflict in a relationship.

Spelling is doing her best to keep life as normal as possible for the children, the star is allegedly making McDermott’s life hell behind closed doors, reports FOX News.

Do Tori Spelling's children see what's really happening? Robert Emery, author of The Truth About Children and Divorce says an astounding "yes".

Over the course of days, weeks and months these messages accumulate, and take root, increasing the likelihood that children will repeat the very same patterns they have seen in their home growing up, says Emery.

Ultimately, the bottom line is this: unhappy parents do not tend to raise happy children. And unhealthy relationships that "stay together for the kids" when the marriage is destructive tend to produce children who have unhealthy relationships as adults, E. Mavis Hetherington author of, For Better or For Worse: Divorce Reconsidered.

What do you think? Is it time for Tori Spelling to keep it real?
