Jada Pinkett-Smith looks like the kind of mom we wouldn’t want on our bad side. Part powerhouse/part humanitarian – she and Will founded a charity that supports inner-city kids – Jada seems like a hands-on, take-no-crap kind of a parent. (Will, of course, totally fits the bill as the nice-but-firm dad, doesn’t he?) Jada’s rock-band, Wicked Wisdom, is pretty hardcore-and um, so is the advice she gave about spicing up her marriage. Sure there’s all that Scientology mumbo jumbo, but Jada and her crew (Trey, 16, Jaden, 11, and Willow, 8) come off as one of the most grounded, tight-knit clans in the pack, with the kids even starring in movies with Dad.
