Jennifer Garner is getting candid about how she and her three children—Violet (14), Seraphina (11) and Samuel (8)—are coping during the coronavirus pandemic.
The 48-year-old actress appeared on today’s episode of Mom Brain, where she chatted with podcast hosts Hilaria Baldwin and Daphne Oz about how she’s navigating self-isolation. Although Garner confirmed her family is “doing great,” she admitted that her kids “didn’t always feel OK.”
The Alias alum explained that honesty and organization were two main factors in establishing a new routine. “When it first started, I kind of started us off with a ‘we can do hard things’ dinner conversation,” she said. “And with a notebook open—I always have one—with a notebook open, and like, ‘Let’s talk about what we’re going to need to do to be successful. And we’re going to need to be really kind with each other and give each other space.’”
