Former reality star Bethenny Frankel is mom to three year old daughter Bryn Hoppy. Although Bethenny has built an empire around all things weight loss and weight maintenance, the celeb mom says she never mentions dieting around her little girl.
Bethenny explains, “you have to have an energy at home with your children where you don’t talk about weight and you don’t talk about dieting or anything like that. If you start giving your kids anxiety about food, it’s going to last a lifetime. Moms have to lead by example. Don’t say, ‘Oh, my jeans don’t fit,’ or ’Oh, I was bad.’ No diets, nothing like that.”
Bethenny is also mindful of not overdoing it in the gift department. “I am not a person who believes in overstimulating your kids with a lot of toys. I think presents should be special. You don’t want to create a situation where a person spent their whole life trying to fill some void because they are always getting what they want.”
The talk show host shares that she sees a lot of herself in Bryn. “She has a personality … I do see a lot of myself in her, other people see a lot of me in her too. She’s very sassy, she’s smart and she has a good sense of humor and she’s fun.”
