Billy Ray Cyrus defended for parenting skills with Miley

HollywoodNews.com: Billy Ray Cyrus seems to be beating himself up over how things have been going with his daughter, Miley Cyrus, but some people are stepping up to defend him.

Dr. Drew Pinsky told Joy Behar that he believes Billy Ray may have struggled in having multiple roles in his daughter’s life as a friend, parent and costar, states the Los Angeles Times. “That is very confusing. That creates boundary problems for a child,” Pinsky said about what has led up to this point.

But Pinsky doesn’t think that Billy Ray knew what was going to be the result: “But I don’t think he really understood how he had adulterated his parenting function … he probably had difficulties stepping up and asserting himself.”

Do you think Billy Ray Cyrus has done poorly as a parent?

    miley is an adult right? then it’s her choice, she’s 18 and she’s responsible for how she behaves, he’s not. and confusing her, that’s bullshit. she fucked up, but it was her choice. it’s not all about him and it has nothing to do with him.

    I never heard him bitch about Hannah Montana ruining the family (which I don’t think it did) when he was benefiting from it. I’m so on miley cyrus’s side.

    I don’t think billy is a bad parent at all. I also love miley and think she is like every other teen star when they turn of age which is most teenagers out of control think they know everything and r free to do what they want. I think its how u approach the teen not what u do. I wish them both the best and wish they cud reconcile. I may b almost 30 but I really liked hanna montana

    Billy Ray cyrus never benefited from Hannah montana, even when the show was doing well, they never gave gave him a raise. the “small” amount of money he got paid at the beginning of the show was close to the amount he got paid at the and of the show. By the way, Billy Mentioned that he has never touched miley’s money.

    Billy Ray is a one hit wonder, they could have hired anyone to be hannah dad they picked him he got paid no matter how much he still was paid.
    He may of been a good parent in the past but he is not now. As a parent you don’t go on national television or national news and say your daughter or son is a crap hole. And that her show that made her and her family millions.
    Hannah is over and he is now understanding his career is trash and he needs anything even bad news to keep his name in the media.
    As for Miley what has she done wrong, I live in a hole in the wall town of about 1200 people, and even here in the summer the teen girls wear clothing in public that would be better suited at a Playboy masion sex party. I have seen these teen girls at the park drop their pants and take a pee in front of god and everyone else, most are either drunk or on pills.
    SO WHERE HAS MILEY CYRUS GONE SO WRONG BECAUSE SHE WANT TO QUIT DISNEY AND GO ON TO ABOVE 17 RATED SHOWS.
    IF PARENT DON’T LIKE THEIR LITTLE PINHEAD WATCHING HER PREFORM AS A ADULT THEN WHY ARE THEY LETTING THEIR CHILD WATCH ABOVE 17 SHOWS.
    I THINK THE BALL IS IN THE PARENTS LAP NOT MILEYS.

    I don’t think he’s the problem. Miley is doing things she’s not supposed to do. She should not have smoked a bong and she shouldn’t have been out at a bar when she knew she was underage.

    Some one has to help her her. No one wants to see her in rehab or jail.

    Somebody please help Miley.
