Jordin Sparks, 30, spoke in an interview with Working Mother, and she admitted that she doesn’t have time for people’s opinions on how she should run her household. Parenting decisions belong to her and her husband, Dana Isaiah, 28. They are parents to Dana Isaiah Thomas Jr.
“Girl, I am not worried about what anybody else has to say about me or my family. I do what’s best for myself and my family, and that’s what everybody should do, you know?” Jordin said. “I feel like mom-shaming should be a thing of the past. It should just not exist anymore—it really shouldn’t.”
Jordin doesn’t understand why others are picking at other parents’ decisions for their children or themselves. We live in such difficult times, and we should be supportive of each other. If we don’t agree with some lifestyles, then we should just focus on our own. This is her advice,
“Give yourself some grace. These are unprecedented times. There’s a lot of pressure, there are a lot of routines being disrupted, and that can be really hard, especially when you have kids, and [you’re] figuring out how to make room for you and your partner but also for yourself on another level,” she said. “My advice is to give yourself grace and to realize that at the end of the day, family is what matters.”
Even within her marriage, Jordin said that forgiveness and communication are key elements to help couples push through these hard times. A little fact about her and Dana, they hold on tightly to their faith, which also helps the couple remain strong, as reported by PEOPLE. She advised to look at the bright side, to see the good instead of the bad.
The No Air singer is very content to spend time with her family, especially her son. She revealed that recording is not too bad either, since she has an in-home recording studio, which helped her make her latest album, “Sounds Like Me.”
Jordin Sparks will appear in the 94th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC.
