Tweets, Moves, Dates – Why Are We Still Hating on Celeb Moms' Choices? (Photos)

Katie Holmes' choice of school for Suri raised eyebrows.

For all the applause Katie Holmes got for taking daughter Suri out of an allegedly harmful Scientology-based environment, she got almost as much criticism for her choices when she was selecting a new environment – namely, a school – for her child.

She considered a Catholic school. Too restrictive. Goodbye to pretty clothes and lipstick. And would it be too much of a shock for the first-grader to go from Dianetics to Mass and rosaries in such a short time?

Then she settled on a nondenominational private school. Ridiculously expensive, smirked critics (the annual tuition is almost what an average middle-class family brings in per year). And fellow parents worried that their uniform-clad daughters might be mistaken for young Ms. Cruise and get hounded by paparazzi.

For heaven’s sake. The woman is just trying to give her daughter an education. Did we really expect her to put one of the most famous children in America on a bus and send her to public school? Suri may be mingling with other elite kids, but at least she’ll have friends. For the last six years, the only pals she’s been seen with are her stuffed animals.

Are we so insecure about our own parenting choices that we have to criticize other moms in order to feel better about ourselves?

Take a look at our gallery of other celebrity mothers who’ve been feeling the heat for recent decisions they’ve made – posting pictures, going out with a boyfriend, changing addresses – and why we say that maybe the public is being too hard on them.

Celeb Moms Taking Heat for Their Parenting Choices

Giuliana Rancic: Set up a Twitter account for her baby

The proud new mom gave newborn Edward Duke a VERY early introduction to social media by setting up his own Twitter account. "You can find me eating, sleeping or pooping...that's how I roll," says his bio. A bit much? Not really. It's more like a cute new-mom joke - not to mention a preventive measure against those who might want to get first dibs on the handle.
Will you follow little Duke?
