“I’m really open with my kids, whether it be about drugs and alcohol, whether it be about sex, social media — whatever it is, they’re smart,” she said at the time. “And I treat them as such. I have to have those open conversations with them because if I don’t, they’re going to get misinformation somewhere else.”
The proud mother has also taught her girls to never be afraid to express their thoughts and feelings to others.
“My girls have good boundaries; they stand up for themselves and speak their minds,” Jodie explained on the “Allison Interviews” podcast in November 2021. “Particularly my older one, she has always been that kid that would say, ‘I don’t like that.’ Not necessarily in a bratty way, but like, ‘Nope, I’m not doing this.’ I didn’t get those skills until I was in my 30s. I’m just so proud of how they stand up for themselves and say, ‘This is who I am, and this is what I like.’”
In September 2021, Jodie posted an adorable family photo with a heartfelt caption on National Daughters Day.
“Today is #nationaldaughtersday and I am so lucky to be a mom to Zoie and Bea,” she wrote. “I know it’s not always easy, and sometimes not fun … but watching my girls grow up is wonderful. They are strong, smart, independent, and fierce young women. I couldn’t be more proud. Truly.”
