Taraji P. Henson: “Listen To Your Children And Communicate With Them”

Taraji P. Henson: "Listen To Your Children And Communicate With Them"

Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson has made her mark in Hollywood in the short time she has been making films, starring in hits such as Hustle and Flow, and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. The 39-year-old is also a single mother to 16-year-old son Marcel. In an interview with Babble, the actress opened up about raising her son as a single mother, her extended family, and her career.

On her parenting philosophy: “Listen to your children and communicate with them. You have to be there 100 percent for them. You have to pay attention to what they’re doing/reading/watching because this world is a very different world than when I grew up. They have all this information at their fingertips, and you have to pay attention—with eyes wide open.”

On teaching her son one important lesson: “To trust his own voice. When I leave him and can’t always be with him to say, “Do this, do that,” I hope he can hear my voice and God’s voice. There are times when you don’t listen to those voices, and then you find yourself in a world of trouble. But if you start training yourself to listen and obey that voice, you’ll find yourself [avoiding] dumb choices.”

On her biggest parenting challenge: “Doing it alone. I’m a single mom, so I have to do everything.”

Kourtney Kardashian On Her “Non-Existent” Fitness Routine

Kourtney Kardashian On Her "Non-Existent" Fitness Routine

Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star Kourtney Kardashian welcomed son Mason 5-months-ago, and according to the busy mom, she barely has any time for taking care of herself. The reality starlet said of her fitness routine,

My fitness regimen is basically non-existent right now. Although taking care of Mason keeps me very active, and I do take him on walks. I do jumping squats while holding Mason and he laughs so hard when I jump with him. I only do like three a day though.”

Kardashian then opened up about her health and beauty, adding, “I drink lots of water and get eight hours or more of sleep if I can. Curling my eyelashes really opens up my eyes and is a quick and easy fix.”

Kourtney and boyfriend Scott Disick are hoping to expand their family, with the reality star revealing, “We’re not trying, but we’re not not trying.”
