Gwyneth Paltrow Is Just Like The Rest Of Us When She Gets Pissed At Her Kids

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow is finally admitting that she’s not perfect, just like the rest of us.

The actress and celebrity mother-of-two has recently admitted that she sometimes struggles with motherhood the same way we do in In Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet. She tells the talk show host:

“When I’m tired, when my chips are down that’s when I don’t parent the way that I want to parent. I can get impatient and at the end of my rope and just threadbare. And I hate that and I hate feeling out of control, even if I’m just saying, “That’s enough!”… It’s not the way that I would aspire to be.”

She adds:

“I do really believe that part of our job is to equip them for the world. And we can’t make everything okay for them, we can’t take away all of their suffering. It’s not good for them. They need to be able to know that people lose their tempers and people have bad days and it doesn’t mean that you don’t love them, it doesn’t mean anything. It’s just that we’re all human. But of course I beat myself up endlessly when [I do get impatient].”

So basically Gwyneth admits that she gets pissed at her kids the same way we do and then ends up having mom guilt for it, too. Hey, it’s normal, we’ve all gone through it and kudos to Gwyneth for letting her guard down and not pretending to be one of those “perfect celebrity moms.” We all have our moments with our kids, don’t we? What do you think?
