Eva Mendes doesn't have a problem with her daughter calling her out on her own bad behavior.
On Jan. 23, the mother of two took to Instagram to share an image of a Tweet from LatinxParenting.
"Let your kids call you out. It's not disrespect. It's healthy. Kids can be so fiercely aligned with their value that they will take nothing less than the respect they deserve. They will take no BS. Not even from you," the post read. "Congratulations, you are raising an empowered child."
Eva, who shares daughters Esmerelda, 6, and Amada, 4, with partner Ryan Gosling, thanked the parenting channel for the "important reminder."
The "Hitch" actress went on to explain why she has been absent from the social media platform for nearly a month.
"I haven't posted lately because my little one told me I was on the phone too much. I could tell she was taking it personally. And she's a kid, of course she'd take it personally. They take things personally unless we go out of our way to make it clear to them it's not personal," she explained. "So we had good talk, I apologized and I promised her I'd be mindful. I realized that just because I'm always home with them doesn't mean I'm always present."
LatinxParenting called the share a "huge honor" and requested Eva get in touch in regards to a book they're working on about mothering.
"[Eva] fueled a movement of Latinx parents rethinking the way we parent and [I just want her to know] how incredibly grateful I am for that. And that she contextualized it with her experience is so beautiful and insightful," the page's author wrote on Eva's post. "It's a big deal for so many reasons."
