As Berkus told Us Weekly, “there’s a really beautiful side to it because you have the opportunity, usually, to be more present and that’s all that matters. Your kids want to know that you can see them and that you care, and we’re fortunate enough to be able to do that.”

“They’re each their own individuals with their own personalities and own rhythm,” Brent stated in the same interview, likely echoing the sentiments of many parents all over the world.
