Renowned actor Katie Holmes knows the way to live life to the fullest.
According to the report by usmagazine.com two years after her much talked about divorce from Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes appeared on Today show on Wednesday, Aug. 6, to talk about her new role in The Giver, She also spoke about her real-life role as mother of Suri Cruise.
Actor Tom Cruise arrives with his wife Katie Holmes, who is holding their daughter Suri, at Narita International Airport March 8, 2009.
As explained by usmagazine.com, Holmes told Matt Lauer that she has always been a risk taker.
On portraying her role as a mother in her upcoming movies, Holmes said "I approached it like all mothers when their child is leaving the nest," the actress explained. "There's a pain. There's a loss. That's how I approached the character."
The actress revealed that she never really looked back and wanted to take one day at a time. She is extremely happy and grateful for whatever life has offered to her so far.
She said the most important role she has in her life is being the mother of 8 year old daughter Suri. Homes expressed that she had a wonderful upbringing with her parents and siblings.
Irrespective of if it is a celebrity life or a commoner’s, a healthy family matters a lot especially for the kids, a new scientific study revealed.
According to the report by Science Daily, the study , conducted by psychologist Chrystyna D. Kouros, Southern Methodist University, Dallas along with his colleagues, got published in the Journal of Family Psychology.
The results were based on data provided by 203 families, where family members were asked to provide complete daily diary entries for 15 days. Mothers and fathers rated the quality of their marriage and their respective relationship with their children every day.
The researchers observed when parents had conflict in their marriage, as a consequence that day's interactions with their child were smudged with tension and conflict.
But interestingly, distinct differences were found in case of mothers and fathers.
Situations where the quality of the marriage was low, mothers were the great balancing factor.
"In fact, in that situation, moms appeared to compensate for their marital tension," Kouros said. "Poor marital quality actually predicted an improvement in the relationship between the mom and the child. So, the first day's adverse spillover is short lived for moms."
But the same thing didn’t happen with fathers, the study concluded.
