Lori Loughlin is back on TV screens everywhere starring in the new show, Beverly Hills 90210. Lori has two children now, Isabella Rose,9, and Olivia Jade, 8. She recently talked to Modern Mom and answered 10 questions, here are some highlights from the interview…
On the secret to balancing career and family: I always make my children and family my first and foremost priority. Also when making a choice about taking on or accepting a role, the first thing I think about is how it’s going to affect my kids. If it takes away from an important time when my kids need me, then I pass on the project and stay home with them. However, I realize not all moms are in a similar position where they can choose to stay home with their kids. I do realize that my husband has a good job and can support our family and that I am very lucky that I have the flexibility to make those choices.
On what her parents taught her about parenting: I think that the biggest things my parents taught me about parenting is to not be rigid, keep an open mind and communicate with your children constantly. They also taught me to deal with every situation as it’s handed to you. They helped me realize that it’s important to allow for flexibility as a parent and to understand and to empower my children.
On what she would like to teach her children: I want to teach my children to be independent, kind, compassionate and self-sufficient. I think being self-sufficient is very important, especially for my girls because I want them to be able to rely on themselves in life. But if I could teach my children one thing it would be to live in the moment and enjoy every minute of life. I think it’s hard to really step back and enjoy ourselves in the world we live in, so I want to teach them that.
On her favorite family activity: I love when we all go skiing as a family in Aspen, CO. It’s such a great thing to do with my husband and kids because we get to spend entire days together. Starting from the minute we wake up, we’re together all day having meals as a family, exercising, watching movies and just spending good quality time.
