Jill Scott may be the only parent in the home but she is anything but a single mother. The R&B singer tells Steve Harvey that she has a village to help with raising her son, Jett.

“Honestly, I am not a single mother,” says Jill. “Everybody joins in to help me raise Jett. These are people that I love and trust.” The singer further explains, “‘Single’ to me implies that there’s nobody else to help you. If I need a minute, if I need some advice, I can call some folks, and they’ll come in. They’ll help throw the ball, teach him out to play catch… they’ll teach him how to pee standing up, because what do I know about it?”

Among the many inspirations in Jill’s village is her grandmother. “She had five children. Her house caught on fire and she ran in the house, fought off three or four men because they said it was over, but her baby was in the house. So she ran in that house, and she got her baby and came back with no eyelashes and no eyebrows … but she saved her baby’s life.”

See what else Scott had to say about the life lessons that her grandmother taught her and how she uses them to guide Jett below!
