Tina Knowles has raised two very successful daughters … so what’s her secret? She says she was always open and honest with Beyonce and Solange!
Beyonce Knowles and her sister Solange have a driving force behind their chart topping hits and classy reputations …. their mega mom Tina Knowles. Her girls went from Houston, TX hopefuls to powerful names in Hollywood, and Tina spoke to Momlogic.com about the experience of raising two daughters in the spotlight.
“I have always tried to be as open and honest as possible with the girls growing up,” Tina says. “I let them know they could always come to me with anything — and I would be there to support them.” And we know she did a good job, because unlike so many girls in Hollywood, Beyonce has always been super classy and well-behaved!
But it’s not easy. Tina is constantly shielding her daughters from the rumors and negativity that come with being famous. “Hearing untrue rumors and protecting them from the negative side of the entertainment industry is the biggest challenge,” she confesses. “It can be exhausting.”
Her main piece of advice for all moms? “Trust me: You will make mistakes, and the important thing is to admit that you are human … rebelliousness is normal when children are finding their own independence … this too shall pass.” What do you think? Could moms in Hollywood learn a lesson from Tina Knowles? — Chloe Melas & Corynne Steindler
