Gellar gave People some parenting advice at a reunion in 2018 and said the most important thing she’s learned as a mom is not to fall into the same routine with her kids.
“What I would say to any new parent that someone once gave me that I thought was the best advice was: add ‘for now’ at the end of every sentence,” did she declared.
The performer expanded on her advice and noted that as her youngsters grew up, they kept her on her guard as a mother, which she learned to come to terms with.
Realistic expectations: Gellar opened up about her parenting skills during an interview with People where she noted that she had learned to “add” for now “to the end of every sentence.”
‘So like “I’m not sleeping right now” … or “My kid doesn’t want to listen right now.” Everything is going to change and when you look at it that way it’s a lot less intimidating, ”she said.
Gellar concluded that she had tried to educate her children about respecting the feelings of others and noted that in this way they had learned to be much more responsive individuals.
“As a parent, the most important thing you can do is teach your child about responsibility and empathy. When a baby or a toy cries, they have to take responsibility and take it more seriously than letting someone else take care of it, ”she said.
Managing her children: the artist also pointed out that parenthood had become “much less intimidating” for her after learning to be more flexible with her children.
