(Newser) – The elder two of Michael Jackson's children have started going to school with other kids for the first time in their lives, and are thriving. Prince Michael Jackson, 13, and Paris, 12, ended homeschooling at their own request, and are enjoying attending Los Angeles' exclusive Buckley School, their famous pop's alma mater, ABC News reports. For now, two bodyguards escort the pair to and from classes, but Jackson family attorney Brian Oxmam says the children are doing so well that the bodyguards may be gone within weeks. "These kids can handle anything," he said.

"Academics are really important," Oxman added. "But as to social atmosphere—throwing papers and what not—listen, these kids have a real good time." The youngest Jackson, 8-year-old Blanket, will continue to be homeschooled for now. Oxman said Paris is quieter and more cautious than her older brother. "He's a very powerful personality and wants to be with kids his own age," Oxman said of Prince. "I get the sense that Prince really likes business. And he likes speaking." Michael Jackson would be happy about the change, said Oxman. "If theis is what they wanted, he would have approved," he said.

No matter what any person or idiot types here, those three children will ALWAYS know Michael Jackson (whether you liked him or not!) as 'DADDY'!! PERIOD. THAT is the final word they know and that is how it should always be! Whatever was said about him (true or not!), they will deal with it in their own way as it comes!

Sorry I can't take seriously criticisms of Michael Jackson by those who don't know the difference between 'that' and 'who' (zaglossus) and those who don't know the difference between 'there' and 'their' (next200)... Just sayin'.
