Penélope Cruz, the attentive 49-year-old mother and actress, opens up about her motherhood journey with Luna, 10, and Leo, 13, her children with Javier Bardem.
Cruz shares her steadfast dedication to protecting her children, emphasizing her commitment to allowing any potential venture into the spotlight to be entirely their choice, unfolding on their terms and timeline.
“It’s for them to decide if they are going to have a job that is more exposed to the public or not. They can talk about that when they’re ready,” she claims.
Two years ago, the Spanish actress openly admitted to being in the minority for placing a high priority on safeguarding her children from social media. Presently, Cruz reaffirms her stance, revealing that her children “don’t even have phones.”
In a recent interview, Cruz highlights the potential hazards of early exposure to social media, asserting, “It’s so easy to be manipulated, especially if you have a brain that is still forming.” She voices apprehension about the effects on children and teenagers, stating, “It’s a cruel experiment on children, on teenagers,” with repercussions not faced by her generation, which learned about a BlackBerry at 25, but by the younger generation.
In sharing her personal interaction with the online realm, Penélope Cruz discloses, “I have a very strange relationship with social media. Where I use very little of it in a very careful way. There is something that is not making sense, and it’s especially affecting younger generations. I feel really bad for the ones that are teenagers now. It’s almost [as] if the world was doing some kind of experiment on them. ’Oh, let’s see what happens if you expose a 12-year-old to that much technology.’”
Moreover, many celebrities have unique and very curious parenting styles, readily sharing the fundamental principles with their fans.
