Those of you who have any experience of being a single parent will understand the hard work and the sacrifices that you have to make in order to make sure that your children are being brought up right. We can often find ourselves getting stressed out and overwhelmed by it all, and it seems that the superstars in the world are no different. Hollywood beauty Gwyneth Paltrow has been talking about raising her children, and Gwyneth has admitted that she has moments where she questions herself as a mother.
Paltrow explained, "The other night, I was in the bath and I texted my best mom friend, 'Am I f***ing this up?' And she was like, 'No! Breathe. We all feel this way, take a step back. Your kids are great.' It's tough, but it's the most important thing I do by far. It's challenging, rewarding and very emotional. It's like going through childhood again, but standing next to the people that you love more than you've ever loved anybody in the world and helping them bear their heartaches and mistakes and triumphs."
She added, "I think our parents all parented out of instinct and how they were parented, and it takes an incredible amount of energy to divert from that path and be like, 'No, I want to think about this.' So not just being reactive and carving out the time to think about how you want to handle something -- how you want to help shape them and help support them."
As far as her acting career is concerned, Gwyneth Paltrow has not been as active in recent years as she once was but she does like to take on some very interesting acting projects these days. While there are no really big movies lined up for the future, Gwyneth is attached to appear in the new TV movie One Hit Wonders, as well as the foreign film 33 Dias.
