Hollywood kids: too much, too soon?

Life & Style Weekly

While most kids across the country went back to school after the long summer break, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' daughter, Suri, instead flew across the country to attend New York Fashion Week! On Sept. 9, Suri was wearing a Phillip Lim miniskirt and dark-red lipstick and missing her second day of kindergarten at New Village Leadership Academy in LA!

"Because Suri is being raised a Scientologist, both Katie and Tom have to treat her like an adult," a former employee of the couple reveals to Life & Style. "There's no coddling, and they never tell her anything -- they ask. So when she wants to wear her Cinderella costume to bed, she gets to. When she demands a manicure at 9 p.m., she gets it." And that includes treats for breakfast!

In fact, Katie called in a "cupcake emergency" on Aug. 19, picking up four dozen of the Sprinkles goodies. "When Suri wants a cupcake at 10 a.m., she gets one," a former Cruise staffer reveals to Life & Style.

Suri's just among those tots in tinseltown that live an over-the-top lifestyle. Shiloh and her siblings are traveling the globe, Madonna's daughter has her own credit card with a $10,000 limit and the tiniest tot, Rachel Zoe's 6-month-old son, Skyler Berman, already has a pair of $3,700 shoes!
