Tiffani Thiessen on Parenting While in Quarantine

Tiffani Thiessen and husband Brady Smith are clearly having a ball with their daughter Harper, 9, and son Holt, 4, while in quarantine.

The actress recently opened up about how she’s staying motivated through it all.

“I’m really trying to focus on the silver linings because there definitely are many, many silver linings,” she told People. “I’m not going to lie and say it’s not challenging, it’s challenging for all of us.”

She went on to say that the hardest part has been tapping into the role of teacher for her two children, i.e. homeschooling.

“Especially for Harper, she’s a social kid. She misses her friends and her teachers. She probably likes the teachers telling her what she should be doing instead of her mother,” she said. “But she’s doing great and we’re definitely getting into a better rhythm. I love that we’re able to be together. I adore my family.”

As for her husband, the key is better communication.

“When we don’t communicate, that’s when I know things don’t go great because we’re not able to get the things that are important to us as people done and making sure our kids are getting the things that they need done and also their emotional needs met,” she said. “So communication is key.”

We agree, Tiffani!
