Pilar Sanders is a model and actress who is best known for her roles in ‘The Mod Squad’ (1999) and ‘Streets of Blood’ (2009). The mother of three recently spoke with Hello Beautiful about parenting and the legacy she hopes to leave behind.
Serving as mom and role model.
“I believe role models should indeed be those closest to you and who do the most for you. I believe hands on mothers, as myself, have so much influence on our babies. It’s amazing. We shape their thoughts, behaviors their character; we give them a point of reference for love, respect and life in general! There’s nothing more precious and needed than mommies.”
How Pillar teaches her boys to respect women.
“My boys were beginning to treat my daughter and every female around them how they saw my husband treat me and it broke my heart! I had to immediately confront this behavior and consistently bring truth to what they were doing and as to what they witnessed. Removing them from the situation was seemingly impossible because the help I sought were [as I later found out] a part of the problem as well. I am still in the process of removing my children from having to witness such disrespect and male chauvinism but unfortunately the courts take their time and don’t always choose to look at the truth that is presented before them. I continually speak with my children and they are coming along. I know they love their sister, their mommy and women, it’s important for me to keep them level headed.”
How she’d like to be remembered.
“[I’d like to be remembered] for the amazing love I have for my babies, my family, women and people in general. For how I see life, love God and how my Health, Fitness and Beauty teachings help change the lives of children, women and families across the world.”
