Angelina Jolie really loves having a house full of teenagers since her six kids are all at that age now. Apparently, the actress is great at helping them navigate this stage of their lives and is ‘incredibly patient’ with them.
According to an insider, the mom of six is really proud of how they have such an ‘open communication,’ which is the main way in which she helps them grow and mature during this time.
Angelina and the kids have been spending most of their time together at home because of the pandemic and the source tells HollywoodLife that she loves it!
They also shared that ‘Angelina had a hard time as a teenager. She remembers how tough it was, so she is incredibly patient with all her kids. She wants them to be able to talk to her about anything. She does have rules, but she is not at all what you would call strict. She gives them a lot of autonomy. Her mother was that way with her and her brother growing up. She was always so understanding and that’s the way Angelina tries to be with her kids too.’
‘There’s a big focus on talking. Anytime there’s any sort of issue they always talk it out. It’s one of the things she really prides herself on as a mother, the open communication. She loves the way they think. She says they are constantly teaching her things and she absolutely loves having a house full of teenagers. They’re all growing up so fast. Her twins [Vivienne and Knox] will be 13 this summer, so it’s going by fast … she [has] loved loved every stage [of their childhood], but this is the most exciting,’ they shared with the same news outlet.
Angelina and the young ones are often seen out and about, be it on shopping trips or just on walks together.
Not too long ago, she was caught on camera with Shiloh, 14, and Zahara when the latter celebrated her 16th birthday.
That’s when fans realized how much they’ve grown in the last year as Shiloh is now as tall as her mom at only 14!
