It's been a year of ups and downs for Jennifer Lopez.
With the success of American Idol and her album, she's also had to deal with a divorce from her ex-husband Marc Anthony.
But that's not stopping Jennifer from loving herself and teaching her 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme, the lessons she wants them to learn.
The triple threat says:
"I think I’ve learned in the past year or two is that I can stand on my own two feet, and to give myself credit for that. To really give myself a little bit of love, instead of always beating myself up for what I didn’t do or how I could have done something better or what else I’m going to do next. Just take a minute and a beat to appreciate the things that I have accomplished. That’s something that I have to work on, but I’m working on it. I’m getting better at it, I think.
That’s the one thing I want to teach my daughter – to love herself, and to feel good all on her own, no matter what happens. I just want to teach [my kids] to be great people, to love themselves, to love others, to treat others with respect and kindness, to know that they’re in a privileged position, and to be charitable and work hard… just because you have success doesn’t mean that you stop doing those things."
That's definitely an important and powerful lesson to instill in your children. We know you still got a bit of that "Jenny from the block" in ya - and we're sure your kids see it too.
