Michael is survived by three children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and eight year old Prince Michael II, known as ‘Blanket’. The kids are now looked after by the star’s mother Katherine Jackson, and his brother Jermaine says they are thriving.
“My mother raised nine kids, so she definitely knows how to raise them,” he explained. “They love the film business, and they love being behind the scenes. Blanket loves to dance and sing. Prince and Paris love movies. They can tell you about directors and producers and all that stuff.”
Jermaine explained the whole family are pulling together to care for the children, and help them cope with their grief. Regular dinners are set up so the kids see all their aunts and uncles, and they also get taken on lots of holidays. The trio spent the first anniversary of Michael’s death, on June 25, in Hawaii.
Prince, Paris and Blanket love being with their cousins, and relax by playing video games and going to look animated films.
Jermaine was speaking at a dinner celebrating the fifth annual Children Uniting Nations conference in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, and his brother Randy was also there. Randy echoed Jermaine’s sentiment that Katherine is looking after the kids well.
“I feel Michael everywhere,” he told People magazine. “I know Michael's spirit is so much alive. He's guiding me ... us to just keep things going and keep things the way they're supposed to be.”

A resolution is in the works that has state park officials examining whether the 2,600 plus acre estate could in fact be converted in to an attraction, that could result in profitable revenue for the cash strapped state.
The plan to convert the property is being rallied by California Assemblyman Mike Davis and the state’s NAACP. Davis firmly believes that the Santa Barbara County estate would draw millions of visitors from around the globe. California’s NAACP President Alice Huffman, who is also on the board of the state’s parks commission, says, “I think Michael’s history is world history, and I think it would become the No. 1 attraction for the state parks if we could pull it off.”
Huffman also thinks that in addition to celebrating Jackson’s musical and cultural contributions, Neverland could join the ranks of state parks, which would honor African Americans like Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park in Earlimart, Calif.

LaToya claims the Thriller hitmaker — who died last year after suffering a heart attack following an accident drugs overdose — spent a fortune trying to get leading throat specialists to implant vocal chords into his furry friend.
“Michael always wanted to know how to make Bubbles speak and talk,” she told Britain’s News of The World.
“They definitely communicated. One morning Michael called me said ‘You got to see this — he mimics everything I do’. So Michael starts brushing his teeth and Bubbles looks up and gets a tooth brush and starts brushing his teeth too.
“Then he wanted to give him vocal chords and asked doctors ‘Can I give him an operation so that I can know what his thoughts are’.”
Michael had to let Bubbles move out of the family home in Encino, California, when he got too big in 1988.
“The trainers who came to the house felt the situation wasn’t normal and he shouldn’t be there,” said La Toya.
“Bubbles became extremely strong. When he was younger he would slap you and it would not hurt. But now they could knock you out. Sometimes he would swing on a chandelier and fly onto a table, and Michael would scream ‘no, no’.”

Michael Jackson's mother is to produce a film about her late son.
Katherine Jackson is reportedly working with Howard Mann - the co-author of her coffee table book 'Never Can Say Goodbye' - on a movie which will focus on the pop superstar's life from childhood to his untimely death on June 25 2009.
According to gossip website TMZ, Katherine is making hundreds of hours of home videos available to Howard, including footage of when the Jackson family moved from Gary, Indiana, to Los Angeles after The Jackson 5 signed with Motown records.
It is also believed Howard has paid an eight figure sum to the 'Black or White' singer's former business partner Marc Schaffel for 26 hours of video picture of Michael.
The plans are for Howard and Katherine - who is the legal guardian of Michael's three children, Prince Michael I, Paris and Prince Michael II, also known as 'Blanket' - to release a series of films about Michael.
Since his passing, the documentary 'This Is It' showing Michael rehearsing for his never-to-take-place 50-date London concert residency has been released.

Joe Jackson has admitted he accused Katherine Jackson of not doing enough to stop the late Thriller star - who died of acute Propofol intoxication - abusing prescription drugs, just hours after he passed away last June.
Speaking of their confrontation in the mortuary, Joe admitted: "Katherine was weeping uncontrollably and highly upset. But I didn't give her a hug because I was mad at her crying.
"I said, 'If you had listened to me Michael would be living now.' I kept thinking about the times I had stood in front of her saying something was wrong.
"I couldn't bottle up my feelings. Katherine didn't say a word - I had to get away from her. If she'd done what I asked, Michael would be here today. I am incensed with her. She could have made a difference."
Joe - who was accused by Michael of beating him during childhood - claims he asked Katherine several times to intervene in the King of Pop's problems because he knew the star wouldn't listen to him.
He added to the News of the World newspaper: "In Michael's final months alive I said to her many times that I couldn't get through to him - and that she needed to help her son.
"I had begged her to go over and stay with him, but she insisted he needed his privacy and gave him the slack she thought he needed. A child will listen to his mother more than his father - and Michael was a mummy's boy."
Despite his accusation, Joe, 80, also holds himself responsible for Michael's death because he was unable to get the singer's planned 50 date London residency reduced.
He explained: "I wish I had made him walk away from those shows. I knew he would never make them, but I never thought he'd die.
"I tried to help Michael, but I feel I could have been more aggressive in getting access to him."

Dr Conrad Murray, 57, has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. During a brief procedural hearing in Los Angeles, Dr Murray's case was assigned to Judge Michael Pastor.
Judge Pastor adjourned the case until mid-June, when he is expected to rule on whether to revoke Dr Murray's medical licence pending the full trial.
Dr Murray's lawyers are fighting that move, saying he needs to practise medicine to pay for his defence.
"He is, without fear of overstatement, hanging on by a thread," they said in court documents.
Dr Murray has previously been ordered not to administer any anaesthetics as a condition of his $75,000 (£49,050) bail.
According to US reports, Dr Murray's legal team is to argue that Jackson accidentally killed himself by injecting himself with Propofol.
At the preliminary hearing, scheduled for 14 June, Judge Pastor will decide whether there is enough evidence to go forward with a jury trial.
If convicted, Dr Murray faces up to four years in jail.
