Cree is exploring the world in all of its dishonesty. The little one’s mom tells Fit Pregnancy that her son lies every now and then.


“He’s in the lying stage now,” says Tia Mowry-Hardrict. “Mommy goes to work, but he wants Mommy’s attention, so he’ll pretend that something’s wrong. He just told me, ‘Mommy! A bee stung my neck!’ He doesn’t know that if a bee stung his neck, you’d see the stinger—and he’d be screaming at the top of his lungs! When he told me that, I had to laugh.”

Although funny at times, Tia tells Fit Pregnancy that she takes dishonesty very seriously. “At first I console him so he knows I care,” shares the star in reference to her son’s fabrication about the bees. “But then I say, very calmly, ‘Guess what, Cree? A bee did not sting you,’ and explain to him that he shouldn’t say that when it’s not true. You need to talk to kids like they’re tiny adults, because they are,” explains Tia.

Cree is Tia and husband Cory Hardrict’s only son. You can find out what else the ‘Instant Mom’ actress has to say about her family and childhood as a twin in the latest issue of Fit Pregnancy that is available on newsstands.
