Special times. Set aside a few minutes at a regular time each day when you can give your undivided attention to your child. This quiet calm time – no TV, iPad or phones - can be a confidence builder for young children. As little as five minutes a day can make a difference.
Jennifer Lopez gets asked the same questions all the time.
So she went on her YouTube channel to try something different. The singer and actress let her 11-year-old twins Emme and Max ask her anything — and what ensued was nothing short of adorable.
Through giggles and dabbing and getting her son to set down his phone, we got to learn a little more about the superstar mom.
Like how she feels about being a mom herself. "Is being a mom different than you expected?" Max asked in the almost 10-minute long video.
"You cannot imagine what it's like to be a mom until you are a mom," she responded.
She shared that she used to try to give advice to her friends with kids before she had kids herself and it was a mistake that she apologized for later.
"You realize that the love you have for your kids is so deep that all the normal rules for other people don't apply," Lopez said.
The superstar also told the story of when she and ex-husband Marc Anthony found out they were having twins. She recalled feeling "flutters" in her belly then going to the doctor and seeing them in an ultrasound.
Don't try to fix everything. Give young kids a chance to find their own solutions. When you lovingly acknowledge a child's minor frustrations without immediately rushing in to save her, you teach her self-reliance and resilience.
"I laughed out loud, I couldn't believe it," she said.
Another charming moment is when Emme asked her what it was like living with grandma — Lopez' mom — who had three kids before she was 26 years old.
"I had you two at 37 and it was hard. I wanted to jump out the window so many different times because when one of you cried and the other cried, I was like, '(Screams) what do I do? You can't cry when she cries!'"
