QUARANTINE ROUTINE

Mowry’s children are aware of the pandemic and how dangerous it is despite their young age. However, the mom-of-two tries to keep the kids optimistic by leaving out the “scary details” to avoid “anxiety.” She shared:

“One thing that I have been making sure that we do as a family, especially with the kids, is just keeping them on schedule. The more they are engaged and unplugged from what is going on outside, the better.”

Cree, 9, and Cairo, 2, have art every morning using BIC Kids’ new coloring sets to keep them occupied and enhance their artistic skill at the same time.

THE COUPLE’S ACTIVITY

Mowry’s kids are not the only ones who are busy being creative. The “Sister, Sister” star is on her way to developing a family channel with Kin and Jukin Media, featuring home challenges, among others.

Several times, someone would approach their mother to ask if she was in the right seat because of her skin color.

Meanwhile, her husband, Cory Hardrict, has been “doing lots of cooking” and talking to their children about Black culture in the most entertaining way.

TALKING ABOUT RACISM WITH THE KIDS

The couple began talking more about Black culture after the Black Lives Matter movement became active recently. Mowry shared:

“I’ve talked to Cree about what’s happening because even where we live, you can hear protests going on. You can share stories or read books. I also bought some cute little t-shirts of African-American leaders for my daughter.”

Mowry had witnessed acts of racism throughout her life, specifically when her Black mom was treated differently from her White father.

RACIALLY PROFILED

Among the many times she saw racism up close was when she and her twin, Tamera Mowry-Housley would fly first class with their mom.

Several times, someone would approach their mother to ask if she was in the right seat because of her skin color.

Another time was when their family was looking for a house and her mom entered a housing agency to ask for a brochure.

The agent in charge told her all houses were sold, whereas when her father entered, the agent accommodated him well.
