Angelina Jolie says she's a "responsible parent"
Angelina Jolie does just that for her position as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations. She spends time visiting refugees from around the world in countries such as Cambodia and Ecuador.
Some have questioned her traveling to these countries when she has four small children at home. According to Angelina, "I do no service to my children by staying home and allowing the world to be what it is. That's not teaching them anything; it's not raising them properly."
As a parent, is it better to possibly risk your life in order to help make changes in the world, even if it means that your child could lose a parent at a young age? Or is it more responsible to be there for your child and try to make a difference from home?
