Jodie Sweetin instills discipline in her kids
The mother of two expressed her joy and gives her support to Zoie for the positive information she shares on her Instagram account. “I was actually really proud of her,” Jodie told Today. “I went through some of her stuff. And I saw some of her comments. I always tell them to be positive and not to be mean. I have no patience for any sort of cyberbullying.”
The Full House star also revealed that she has taught her daughters very crucial skills for survival while appearing on the Allison Interviews podcast. “My girls have good boundaries; they stand up for themselves and speak their minds, particularly my older one, she has always been that kid that would say, ‘I don’t like that.’ Not necessarily in a bratty way, but like, ‘Nope, I’m not doing this,'” she said. “I didn’t get those skills until I was in my 30s. I’m just so proud of how they stand up for themselves and say, ‘This is who I am, and this is what I like. My daughters have very firm boundaries, and they are so wonderfully expressive in who they are. I give them the freedom to be that.”
Jodie claims she doesn’t pamper her kids and she also ensures that she stands her ground while dealing with her them. “Look, there are plenty of times I’ve had to yell at my kids in the grocery store,” she shared. “I know someone is recognizing me or is watching me, and I’m thinking, ‘Look, my kids are being bad and Stephanie Tanner had to yell at her kids in the grocery store. I’m sorry.'”
In an interview with People, Jodie explained that she does not hide her past struggles with drugs from her children as she believes that it will guide them in making the right decisions. “I have to have those open conversations with them because if I don’t, they’re going to get misinformation somewhere else.”
