Mom’s across the world need to listen up to this new PSA from Sister Sister alum, Tia Mowry. The actress and mother of two is making sure that mother’s everywhere know that, “you don’t have to be perfect to be a good mom”.

The 44-year-old posted the affirmation-filled video on Instagram, with a caption that was equally as inspiring.


“No matter how much they warn you, no one can prepare you for motherhood. It can sometimes feel like a marathon that just kinda keeps going, and moms are just expected to be so strong all the time. But y’all, you’re still just a person; sometimes you’re gonna make a mistake, and that is okay!”

The Family Reunion star continued, “The more we, as moms, strive for perfection, the more frustrated we become because it’s an unreachable goal. Keeping open lines of communication with my children is how I have cultivated a home that values honoring your feelings, talking it out, and problem-solving as a family, not perfection. This is for all the moms out there: You got this!”

The All-American: Homecoming actress shares two children with ex-husband Cory Hardrict. In a previous interview with HelloBeautiful, Mowry stated that 11-year-old Cree and five-year-old Cairo were a part of her decision to divorce Hardrict.

“A part of my decision [to file for divorce] was also for them. For them seeing their mother walk in truth, I feel like it’s a great lesson for them because it was not an easy decision,” Mowry said.

She continued, “It was one of the hardest decisions that I had ever had to make in my entire life. But if they see that mommy can do it, that mommy, no matter what people say, no matter, even if there’s some sort of doubt, whatever, mommy pushed through. [They can say] my mommy is living and chasing her truth. I want my children to do that. That’s the best gift I can give them.”

In the interview, Mowry stated that she wants her children to know that “it is okay to chase your joy… I want them to see that it is okay to live your truth.”

With this new video, Mowry has unquestionably extended that sentiment to not only her children, but to the millions of mothers out there who just simply needed to hear her words.
