Julia Fox has some parenting advice she thinks could do wonders for first-time parents. The socialite and model took to her official TikTok on Monday, telling moms and dads to stop investing in toys for their children and gift them with cleaning tools instead, stressing that this will teach them “those life skills really young.”
Fox, who has a 19-month-old son Valentino with ex-husband Peter Artemiev, touched on the subject while telling fans how her toddler apparently has no desire to play with toys. “He is actually more interested in what I’m doing,” the 32-year-old said. “So I suggest that everyone buy their kid a mini-mop and mini-broom and start teaching them those life skills really young, so when they enter the real world they don’t have to outsource for everything.” Fox believes that teaching children the importance of things such as how to use a mop and a broom from an early age, it will help ingrain valuable life skills so that when her son reaches his teenage years, using cleaning products and equipment certainly won’t be a challenge for him. “They know how to do things for themselves. I think that’s really important,” she remarked.
