Laughter is the secret to successful parenting according to Tia Mowry-Hardrict. The actress tells Babble that she makes it a priority to include humor in her day.


“I have fun,” she says. “Everything that I do, whether it’s making my freaking bed, I’ll throw on some music and I’m dancing. Same thing with cooking, I’ll have a glass of wine while I’m cooking and throw on some Beyoncé or something. It’s all about having fun to help me get through my day.”

In addition to sharing a few laughs, Tia takes time to be mindful of what her son, Cree, eats. “We all know kids, they love their fun foods. But I think as a mom it’s my job to make sure that my kid stays healthy and I’m watching what goes into his mouth,” she explains.

Although Mrs. Hardrict is not in support of her son getting into show business just yet, she does acknowledge that Cree has a way with the camera. “He’s full of personality, he’s funny as hell, he steals every scene on Tia Mowry at Home, he is so comfortable. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s something that he wants to do,” she says.

Cree is Tia and husband Cory Hardrict’s only child. He will turn five years old in June.
