As we know, it is the parents’ job to mold their kids into the person they want them to be. Everything that a child learns begins at home. This is why it’s very important that parents spend time with their kids and teach them the foundations of life. This applies to all, even to celebrity parents. And talking about celebrity parents, let’s see what important lessons Jerry O’Connell is teaching his twins.
Parenting is challenging but rewarding at the same time. If taking care of one child requires patience, how much more patience is required taking care of two kids of the same age? During his interview with PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle, the Love Locks actor said the most important things that he teaches his twin girls are respect and gratitude.
According to him, “When they meet people, looking them in the eye and greeting them. Saying their name. Saying thank you, saying please. As simplistic as that sounds, it’s really important. It’s a great foundation to start from. After that, I want to make sure my kids have gratitude,” adds their dad. “They’re pretty privileged. We live in a beautiful suburb of Los Angeles. The craziest thing we have to deal with is traffic.”
We have to agree on those fundamental life lessons. It truly is important to be respectful to others and be grateful for everything that we have in life. With Jerry and Rebecca’s guidance, the twins will surely grow up to be responsible ladies.
