Jennifer Garner has revealed that being a Hollywood mum can sometimes have its pitfalls — especially when trying to teach her children that every person is just as equal and as important as each other — regardless of social status. Speaking to Yahoo Parenting, she said:
“The hardest part is other kids talking to my children when we aren’t around. Like, ‘It’s so cool your dad’s being Batman’ and trying to control how much that inflates the idea that one person is more important than another. [My husband I] really work to manage that idea — that just because people react a certain way to us, it doesn’t mean we’re more important than anyone else. And [the kids] are pretty quick to cut us back down to size.”
The actress shares her three children — Violet Anne, 9, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 6, and Samuel Garner, 3 — with husband Ben Affleck and says starting a family is like getting to know each other all over again.
“You just go on a ride together because you don’t know who you’re going to be when you first have a baby and you don’t know who [your partner] is going to be. You have to just hang in there while you figure it out — and have a lot of patience for each other.”
“I don’t like my kids to start the day with TV, so we [play with the kits] on Saturday mornings.”
