Brad Pitt visited Angelina Jolie on the set of her new movie in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The Hollywood couple have moved from New York - along with their four children - to the West Coast while Angelina is shooting Clint Eastwood's new drama 'The Changeling'.An onset source said: "Brad looked on as Angelina performed her scenes. When shooting wrapped they strolled of to her trailer laughing, arm-in-arm."The couple - who are parents to adopted Cambodian son Maddox, six, three-year-old Vietnamese son Pax, two-year-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara and 16-month-old biological daughter Shiloh - have come under fire for up uprooting their children.The family had been living in a $100,000-a-month, six-bedroom apartment in New York's Waldorf Towers and Maddox had just been enrolled at the Lycée Français de New York school.In the last 16 months, the family have lived in New Orleans, Paris, Namibia, Prague, India, New York and now Los Angeles.Manhattan-based social worker Puja Hall told the New York Post newspaper: "Maddox is an adopted child, so he already has a sense of abandonment."Kids that constantly move are like army brats, in that very often they don't want to open up to people. They feel loss, and there is a problem with attachment."With the moves, the kids just don't invest in relationships, because they're going to lose them anyway."They think, 'Why bother? I'm not gonna stick around. We're gonna pick up and go, and the loss of friends is painful.'"It needs to be weighed. At some point, they will have to make some important choices so the kids can form those bonds and keep them."An employee at Lycée Francais de New York said: "We would most likely not take a child for just a few months, because we have a waiting list. If we take them for two months and you pay for two months, we lose money and someone on the waiting list loses a spot."Angelina Jolie's representative, Cindy Guagenti, said: "These comments are unfair to them. It's nobody's business what they do with their kids. Maddox only goes to Lycée schools."

What about the children of military families?
No one gives a thought to what the soldiers children go through being uprooted w/ each assignment.
Then throw in the danger of one or both parents are in going to war.
I know what I am talking about as my hubby retired from the Army after 20+ years.
My children are fine.
And no, they weren't adopted but Brad & Angelina have had custody of those children since they were young so they will be okay.
Hell, they wouldn't even remember they were adopted if it wasn't always brought up.
Maybe by the time they are old enough to read well it won't be continuously brought up.
I think Brad & Angelina are doing a fine job w/ those kids.
My own 2 are adults now & love the fact that they have seen the world.
At least Brad & Ang are not like Britney or others & act like they have no children.
