Jackson's kids 'enjoying' school

Michael Jackson’s children “really like” going to school for the first time.

Michael Jackson’s children “really like” going to school for the first time.

Prince Michael I, 14, Paris, 13, and nine-year-old Prince Michael II, also known as ‘Blanket’ – who are now in the custody of their grandmother Katherine Jackson following his death from an acute Propofol overdose in July 2009 – are now experiencing a normal education after years of homeschooling and are “enjoying” their life at the moment, according to their aunt La Toya.

She told ‘Access Hollywood’: “For the first time they have gone to school and they really like it, so I’m very happy for them. It’s taught something totally different about people and life. They’re just enjoying themselves.

“And they go shopping, they do things of that nature, but they’re with security of course. And they enjoy themselves, they have fun.”

La Toya also revealed she is “so proud” of the three children because of the way they have coped with their father’s shock death and their strength has helped her deal with her grief too.

She added: “They’re doing very well, children are so resilient, I’m so proud of them, I’m just very happy.

“They help me a great deal with my brother. I couldn’t listen to the music, I couldn’t listen to the songs, if they can get over it then I have to too.”
