Actress Viola Davis has opened up about the stress of being a parent. Thr 50-year-old Emmy-winning actress, who is mom to four-year-old daughter Genesis, whom she adopted as a newborn in 2011, said she still struggles with her real-life role of a mother, reported People magazine.
“When you have a child, you want to be a perfect mother. You feel like you have the absolute plan to be a perfect mother — and then you make a mistake, and we all make mistakes,” Davis said.
“The Help” star said she has learned that there is no such thing as the perfect parent and she is ok with it.
“You have those moments: exhaustion, the stress of having an exuberant child, and you don’t want to be judged by your worst mistakes. It’s a part of life, and it’s a part of what makes us who we are,” she said.
