The star actress took her daughters to Violet’s soccer practice in Los Angeles, but needed to deal with a pouty child while she was there.

Jennifer Garner takes being a mom pretty seriously. She once said, soon after her first child, Violet (now 4), was born, “I don’t want to miss a second with Violet.” That includes having to be the bad guy when it comes to disciplining her daughter, as she did over the weekend at Violet’s soccer practice in Brentwood, Calif. But she was able to mix the good with the bad, entertaining younger daughter Seraphina, 1 ½, even dangling her upside down to keep the little one entertained.

Strangely absent was Jen’s hubbie — and Violet and Seraphina’s dad — Ben Affleck, 37, but he may have been busy pushing his new hit movie, The Town, which was number four at the box office over the weekend.
