Tisha Campbell-Martin's estranged husband teaches their sons how to meditate in new video
“Martin” star Tisha Campbell-Martin filed for divorce from her husband Duane last February after almost three decades being together. The actress and her estranged husband have kept an amicable friendship in order to keep on raising their sons together, and he recently shared one of his parenting techniques on social media.
Celebritist learned from Duane Martin’s Instagram account that the 52-years-old actor is teaching his sons some important lessons to control their stress and found their inner peace, and he doesn’t care if they’re in a public space.
The former “All of Us” star shared a video alongside his two sons, Ezekiel, 9 and Xen, 16, while they were shopping, and in it, we can see his youngest son immersed in meditation as Xen refuses to follow along with his father’s instructions.
Martin explained in his caption that he’s been teaching the kids some meditation in order to help them canalize their energy and reach some inner peace.
“MEDITATION IS AN AWESOME TOOL. I taught my boys that all of your power and answers are inside of your stillness. #meditation #still #peace #power #innerpeace #father #son #love”
Tisha and Duane, who were married for 27 years, went through a hard time after Xen’s birth, because the boy was diagnosed with autism at 18-months-old. Tisha revealed to Essence magazine a few years ago that the news were hard to process at first, but she has been working as an advocate to raise awareness about the condition since then, and Xen is doing much better these days.
“Xen was non-verbal [when he was younger], explained the star. He would flap his arms and rock back and forth. He’s never been…in a special needs class because I wanted him to model after typical kids and now he’s a typical kid. He has a girlfriend and he is now speaking; you can’t shut him up.”
The boy looks indeed like a normal 16-years-old that’s too embarrassed by his father’s shenanigans and is not about to lose his cool to join his little brother in meditation in the middle of a shoe store.
Despite their separation, is clear that Tisha and Duane are still working together for the well-being of their kids, and they deserve some kudos for that and for being together for so many years in an industry where long marriages are the exception.
