On a recent podcast interview, actress Scarlett Johansson opened up about her experience as a mother to two young children.
The Toddler Stage is Tough
Scarlett Johansson revealed that parenting during the toddler stage is particularly challenging. She shared in a recent podcast interview that her daughter’s third year was like being in an emotionally abusive relationship. According to Johansson, toddlers have intense emotional swings, making it difficult to reason with them.
Johansson expressed that the third year of her daughter’s life was incredibly tense. Toddlers can be bossy and adamant, and this stage is characterized by constant mood swings. She feels sorry for toddlers as they are constantly up and down, and it must be a lot for them to handle.
While having a baby is lovely, Johansson finds the toddler stage challenging. Toddlers can make parents feel like they’re not doing anything right. Despite this, Johansson believes being a mother is an incredible gift and has huge admiration and respect for working mothers who manage to balance their personal and professional lives.
