Being parents to three fast-growing children, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos know the importance of sharing advice on how to navigate life.


In conversations with their daughter Lola, 18, and sons Michael, 22, and Joaquin, 16, the couple have emphasized the value of keeping good relationships.

"I sometimes wish people could hear my voice as I'm saying it out loud. You don't really have the proper context."


“I think especially with the programs that they're in, the peers they are going to school with are people they are going to be working with, so [we've told them] make connections, cultivate those relationships,” Consuelos said.

Ripa affirmed this wisdom being practiced by their children.

She said, "I think what they have learned so far in their young lives is that you show up for people when they show up for you and you show up. And you don't make a commitment and suddenly a better offer comes along [and you leave the other behind]."



Ripa also advised her children to stand up for themselves and not allow others to bully them into submission.

"I always say this, I counter-troll with love. I never really take it [seriously]," Ripa said. "I sometimes wish people could hear my voice as I'm saying it out loud. You don't really have the proper context."

The “Live With Kelly and Ryan” co-host has noticeably responded to trolls on social media.



Ripa and Consuelos have been public about their family affairs. They often share hilarious moments – like their children walking on them while they were doing an intimate act. But also the struggles they face every day.

Ripa once spoke candidly about her son, Joaquin’s learning issues.


She teared up while sharing about his school achievements despite having, dyslexia, a disability that hinders learning in children.

“School has always been a very big challenge for us in our household,” she said.

Ripa was overjoyed when she was told that Joaquin received straight A’s during a parent-teacher conference in 2017.
