When it comes to celebrities, we all know that they lead very different lives from us normal people, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
Apart from that, their children grow up very differently from us, whether their parents want it or not.
While it’s inevitable that a celebrity’s child will naturally grow up with a silver spoon, it’s up to the celebrities to make sure their children are still learning good values and morals and don’t fall into the trap that we often so many celebrity children do fall see in.
And one of those parents who made sure their kids were raised right?
None other than country icon, Reba McEntire.
We all know Reba as one of the most down-to-earth, level-headed, and humble country stars ever, and she always takes with her the morals her parents taught her growing up in the small town of Chockie, Oklahoma.
And so she made sure her son Shelby was raised the same way.
Reba had Shelby with her ex-husband Narvel Blackstock in 1990, and she kept close to her Oklahoma roots while raising him.
she communicated Persons:
“If we were playing games or cards, I would never let Shelby win. He wouldn’t have learned anything like that. I used to tell Shelby, ‘I’ll always love you, but I want other people to like you. So don’t be a little idiot. Don’t be a spoiled brat.’”
And as far as Reba knows, those lessons were conveyed very well to Shelby, as she said:
“Many people have told me that you would never know that (he) was blessed with the life that was given to him.
I am very proud of him. He was a kid with ADHD and could barely read in school and now he has read 10 books this year. He’s always trying to improve and get better. His father did a great job too.”
She also credited the nannies who looked after him when she was away and how she sometimes took him with her too:
“I had the best nannies and took him out on the streets. If I couldn’t, I would fly home after a concert, pick him up in the morning, take him to school and pick him up. We played until I had to fly to another concert that night. I wanted to be with Shelby. still do.”
So, for all the rising celebs out there, Reba has a simple message on how to raise your kids right…
Beat ’em in the ass at Monopoly…
