I think it’s a lot harder now

It’s never easy for anyone to grow up in the public eye. It’s very difficult no matter the generation. There are a lot of unusual and weird pressures. When I grew up, it was difficult to be a child actor, but now it’s a completely different situation for young people and celebrities in general. When I was a kid, you had paparazzi but you knew where they were and you knew when they were coming. Now, everyone is paparazzi. Everyone has a phone. There is the added pressure of not trusting anyone, anywhere, and that didn’t exist when I was a child. I think it’s a lot harder now.

It really depends on the family

I couldn’t say that there is a number that is too much. It really depends on the family and what they can afford, what they can emotionally handle and what they feel is best for their life.

Why you gotta be so rude?

I like to take whatever popular song that my kids are jammin’ out to, and make it my own. For example, my latest song is “Rude” by Magic! When my kids do something I don’t approve of, I will sing that song to them. “Why you gotta be so rude? Can’t you go and clean your room?”

Don’t give up

For new moms starting out breastfeeding, my advice would be to be patient, and know that it’s a process especially in the very beginning. There is this moment that happens — about a week or two when things are a little raw and the baby latches on and it hurts so badly. I would sit there and think, “I love this child so much, I love this child so much.” And eventually the pain would go away. Once you get through this, it’s the easiest thing in the whole world. The key is to not give up.

My eyebrows go up

When I was a kid, my parents only had to look at me and I knew I was in trouble. For me, my eyebrows go up and I look at them sideways. They will stop what they’re doing, but I know that my “look” does not strike fear the way that my dad’s did, or even my mom’s did.
