Caroline as a mom
 
I've always wondered about this, but now I'm asking what do you guys think Caroline is like as a mom? I mean, I've heard such various supports on her personality, she's either bossy and brutal, or generous and serious. And do you think Charlotte is her favorite? There are alot of pics of her being affectionate with all her children, but especially Charlotte, or maybe she just knows that her boys aren't fond of that?

Any thoughts?

I think she's normal mother,she lost a lot of space to her children's freedom.I heared that she's kind of tender,good mothers.I think she loves very much her children and children love her.Certainly she has disadvantages as everyone and it's diffcult to be always perfect when you are celebrity and public figure...By the way,she's smart and I'm sure she knows what is really important.And the most important is family!:D

IMOP I think Caroline has made a very good Mum. She has steered her children through some difficult times when they lost their father & her subsequent remarriage. The family appear to be all get along as witnessed by the many family get togethers we get picures of such as skiing trips. Caroline had of course excellent role models in her own parents, & the children seem to have had plenty of attention/affection throughout their early years. As we don't know the family, it would be difficult to make any judgments about a favourite, but I guess Caroline & Charlotte enjoy doing mother & daughter things.

hi everybody! my computer is broken so i have to use my father´s.... :(
(only some week-ends..)

i like this thread.well, i have heard that Caroline´s favourite is Pierre, and that she´s very serious and strict. i don´t know if it´s true, but i´m sure she´s a very good mom because her children love her a lot, and they are the only people who can judge her as a mom.

when i see photos of caroline with her children, i always think there is something special between charlotte and caroline..
of course she loves all of them, but it seems to me charlotte is her best one.

I would say Caroline's a good mother because, aside from Pierre doing stupid stuff occasionally (:lol:) , her children have turned out to be rather upstanding citizens. Like I said, aside from Pierre doing stupid stuff (most of which was done once he became an adult), you don't see them breaking the law or harassing others. They're in school/have degrees. They have lives outside of their family with friends and hobbies, and they seem to be invested in the morale of Monaco. Andrea may not show up much, but you can always count on Pierre and, to a lesser extent, Charlotte.

Alexandra's too young at this stage to say much about, but she seems to be a bright and cheeky kid just enjoying life.

I don't see the need to call for favorites. No one wants to hear that, unless they're an only child. Charlotte and Caroline have the bond of not only being mother and daughter, but also women so you will undoubtebly see a strong relationship between them. I'm sure Caroline loves each of her children as equally as she can in their own special ways.

She seems like a a great mom,really active and in touch with her children,instead of having a huge staff and not being involved like many wealthy European ladies.I wish she didn't smoke around the children,and that she dressed Alexandra as well as she did Charlotte, but she is a very busy woman so of course there are priorities.

It is true however that Charlotte and Alexandra are from two different times. Charlotte a child of the 90's and Alexandra of the 00's. If she dressed Alexandra like Charlotte. The poor girl would be laughed at. Alexandra looks fine I think. She has nice, casual clothes. You should see some things the 9 year olds I work with wear. They're all teenagers at 6 these days. Caroline's a smoker; most smoker's smoke around their children, and it is France.

Please note: Several posts have been deleted as they contained
complete sets of already posted pics. This a thread to discuss, not
a thread for pictures, as we already have picture threads like this.
You can find tons of pics in the following threads:

Caroline and Family - Picture Thread Part 1

and several childhood threads.

Thanks for your understanding

I love Princess Caroline's photos with children, especially those photos which were captured in late 1980's. I remember a few pics, when Princess Caroline was holding little Andrea on her hands. Princess Caroline' s love to her children made more deep after the death of her second husband. She loves each child as Princess Grace loved them when Caroline and Albert were little children.

What we cane see in pics she is very physical with all of her children when they were younger...also today she is with her daughters...Charlotte seems to be a bit more dependent in past of her mother's presence than Alexandra how looks more independent, strong caracter...

I read an interview of Ms Casiraghi (Stefano's mother) in Paris Match a few years ago. She said that Caroline was such a wonderful mother and that any child would like to have Caroline as a mother !

ulisse 04-20-2009 01:13 PM

I have read that interview too, Caroline is for Casiraghi children a mother and a father!

You name it!:smile:

Let's not forget that she is also stepmum to Ernst August's sons Ernsti and Christian...

Carminha Stalker 04-20-2009 04:13 PM

I think Caroline is a great mother. I always have seen her with her children, so proud and so happy and even the way she dressed them was a sign of this love. After her husband´s death, I think the bond was even stronger. Of course now, they are grown up and have their own lives and she has Alexandra - but I think her relationship with Alexandra is different, loving, but different.

I agree with you, I think she had loving parents herself and she also looks to be a a very good mother and since it seems that her stepkids like her too and that could have been tricky--so I think that must be saying a lot for the kind of person she must be.:flowers:

I want admit also,that i found "true Caroline" in 1991-1994 when she didn't so much apper in her offcial look..in this time(she was living in Saint-Remy) she was spending a lot of time with her childern,she was wearing jeans,broad shirts,leather jackes and has very nice cut.The children attended to primary school,so she had to look after them and often she picked up them.But now i still think she is great mother,woman and princess:)

CasiraghiTrio 05-09-2009 08:53 AM

It seems to me that Caroline instilled/instills great confidence in her kids. They don't seem afraid at all to express their emotions. They all seem comfortable in their own skin. It seems like Caroline struck a great balance as far as giving her kids breathing space but at the same time establishing boundaries. Her kids, in short, seem to have no doubt as to right and wrong. They can be wild yes, but so far their antics seem pretty harmless. They do seem like essentially good people.

Horseygal 05-09-2009 08:32 PM

I recall an old interview with Diane Sawyer where she talked about, basically, having a more laid-back approach to child rearing, which allowed her children to live more normal lives, since she decided not to give them titles. The Casiraghi children are - for all intents and purposes - like normal teens becoming adults (difference - they're doing so in the tabloids simply because of their blood relations, not by choice....like the many Hollywood celebutants we can list a string of!!). I don't believe that the type of mother Caroline is has led them to make whatever choices they are making now - they are, for all intents and purposes, adults.....I think she's done a great job with Andrea, Charlotte, Pierre, and is doing a great job with Alexa. She also seems to have a strong bond with EAJr and Christian.
