Tennischick I agree. I thought I was the only person who didn't ooh and aah over their daily photos of motherly love at the park. That being said I know Violet is having a great time and her mother does obviously love her. She's not coaching her. She's just letting the whole world see it. I just find it funny some celebs don't go out with their children and they are neglecting them. Jennifer is a great mom because she there are 10 shots of them running and laughing in the park. She's just as shameless as Denise Richards, she's just more likable.

I can never get enough pictures of them. They are the cutest things in hollywood I swear.

thank you lula29. finally someone gets my point. and yes you used the correct word -- this is part of her branding. the public displays of the child only started when she began pursuing the talk show gig. it has continued almost daily since. you never see her setting up play dates with other children -- why risk sharing the spotlight? and yes, i agree. i am not saying that Ms. Garner is a bad mother. i'm accusing her of subtly exploiting her child for her own selish ends -- in this case a talk show. yes all celebrities have a schtick (sp). what frightens me is how easily most people consume these media images without question or challenge. like i said, it's no different from Paris Hilton making sure that the camera caught her toting a different religious book every day. and the scary thing is people fell for it. Barnum was right -- there IS a sucker born every minute.

Tennischick, I'm with you. I think this is part of branding Jennifer Garner as a "Great Mom" because of her new show. I mean, she doesn't do anything more than any other celeb mom. The buzz words surrounding her smack of PR IMO. "Normal", "Down-to-Earth", etc. They Garner-Afflecks are to be seen as outside of hollywood, just like me and you. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with it, because all celebs do it, but to me she's so obvious. I'm sure she loves her daughter too, don't get me wrong, but I can't look at every pick ooohing and aaaahing over her because I feel she doesn't have any talent and all other celeb moms are just as good as her to me.

All kids love going to the park. Are Ben and Jen not suppose to bring their little girl to the park because some people might think that the are there for publicity? God forbid they just want to let their child enjoy the park. I don't understand some peoples thinking.

If she kept Voilet at home, in the backyard all the time, people would say that Jen is sheltering her and not allowing her to interact with other kids. Instead, she also brings her to the park to have as much of a normal and fun childhood as she can.

Because she does this all the time, it's not the money shot that other celebs would bring to the paps all the time. The paps are going to be stalking the big draws, and while kids can bring it money, it's the ones that are rarely if never seen, like Jayden James.

My guess is that it's other people at the park who are taking the pictures, whether it's other parents, nannies, or whomever. Then the pictures get uploaded and passed around. They could be sold, but again, it's not going to be a big draw.

As for letting Violet run barefoot - being barefoot is actually the best for physical development in kids. Kids shoes (the good ones) are designed to mimic walking barefoot as much as possible. I know that I'm used to the south, so I'm always worried about ants, but that grass looks anthill and debris free.

Hey tennischick..if you can deduce that she is a calculating w***e that left her former husband just to have a better opportunity in what you read in the tabloids...why we can't deduce that she is a great mother when we see her playing with her doughter and acting like a normal and caring mother? And why was she going to the park before the story of the talk show? Maybe she really doesn't care about paparazzi and her only concerne is her doughter! Think about that...not that I care to change your mind! It's called par condicio...everyone has the right to have it's own idea about life! Sorry about my english...but it's not, obviously, my first language!

mimi: i have not attacked anyone directly on this board. i believe that that is popsugar policy. do consider abiding by it. my position is based on reports that Jenifer Garner is trying to snag herself a talk show about Mommy-Baby issues. to do so, she is seen parading herself and her daughter in a public park every chance she gets. i never said that she is stage-managing her daughter. i said specifically that these are manipulative photo-ops. this is a woman that abandoned her first husband for a better opportunity. it's amazing to me how quickly people choose to forget that this woman is no shrinking violet but a cool calculating woman who goes after what she wants and gets it. her parading of this poor child in public is a calculated attempt at getting herself a talk-show. the minute she gets it, the photo-ops will become a thing of the past IMHO. but on a larger issue, i am stunned that ANYONE can conclude that someone is a great mother just because she is seen playing with her baby in public. i can think of so many abused children whose mothers and fathers made a point of making public appearances of normalcy while life at home was sheer hell and torture for the children. i am not saying that Ms. garner is a bad mother. i am simply saying that you cannot conclude that she is a good one based on a picture!!!!

PRecious and Tennischick: you two are so sad. You cannot take any joy out of a child (who cannot be staged managed at one y.o. by the way) obviously having a wonderful time at the park and loving her mother, the sight of which is giving many of us so much joy. YOu instead insist that the rest of us are being snookered into something because you say these are photo-ops. YOu have no proof whatsoever, I'm sure the rags would have outed her if it were true (like they did Denise Richards and Britney & KEvin for calling the paps and letting them know where they were). Until you have proof (not made up like i'm sure you will do) --that is a photo agency tells us about it --- shut up about it. Get over your envy. Live a life of love like Jen does. I mean even if she goes to the park knowing the paps will be there who cares? You can't fake the love that child has, and that's what I love.

PRECIOUS: thanks for getting my point. look people -- Jen garner can afford anything that her daughter needs. ANYTHING!!!!! and it's not as if she goes to a public park to make sure her daughter gets a chance to interact with OTHER children. NO. she goes to a PUBLIC park to make sure that idiots like you all will OOOOOH and AAAAAAH over these pics. it is all calculated. WHY???? because she is trying to angle herself a talk-show job on being a mother. these are staged photo-ops. i'm not saying that she isn't a good mother. i'm saying that we cannot conclude this from a series of staged manipulative photo-ops. if you beleive this then you ought to believe that Paris Hilton found faith just because she made sure the cameras caught her toting a Bible which she conveniently carried face-forward for the camera (instead of in a bag like most people who shop at bookstores). and it is people's readiness to be manipulated that makes these stars do the kind of staged crap that they do.
