Tia, Tamera talk child star survival, parenting

    Tia Mowry Hardrict, Tamera Mowry HousleyWhile some child stars end up spending their adulthood in and out of rehab facilities or court, Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley said having each other helped them survive Hollywood.

    “What was really great was, I’m there with my sister. That support system is right there. I’m going through the same things that she’s going through…the trials, the tribulations, everything,” Tia explained to “Access Hollywood.”

    Though their pregnancies were a couple of years apart and they experienced different symptoms, that sisterly support was evident when Tia offered her expertise and advice to Tamera.

    “She helped me through it. She would tell me, ‘This is normal. You’re fine,’” said Tamera about her sister’s words of comfort.

    The twins have been working side by side since their teens, and they’re still at it with their new line of products for moms and their Style network reality show, “Tia & Tamera,” which returns Sunday.

    Viewers will get to see Tia’s son, Cree, as he approaches his “terrible twos,” while Tamera adjusts to motherhood.

    According to the sisters, their sons aren’t at all camera shy while taping, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they want their boys in showbiz. However, having lived the child-star life, Tamera said she has a good idea of what it takes to raise a well-adjusted, successful actor.

    “I think a lot of the times parents now are not into parenting their kids. They want to be their best friend/groupie,” said Tamera. “They forget that they are kids. It doesn’t matter how much money they have. It doesn’t mean you stop parenting your child.”
