One of the most sought-after models in the world spoke about the secrets of parenting in an interview with Vogue. It turned out that the famous Russian woman, who in her 34 years has managed to work with the world's major brands and receive the title of podium queen for her stunning gait, faces the same problems as most young mothers.
About patience and changing priorities
The main thing that has changed for Natasha Poli with the advent of babies is her attitude to time. If shooting, screenings, collaboration with brands and parties were a way of life before, now it's just a job. Previously, she could stay for a day in another city or stay after a photo session, but now there is no time. Children at home, you need to run.
True, this was not always the case. When her first child, Alexandra Christina, was born in 2013, Natasha decided that life was over.
“I didn’t understand anything and thought that my daughter would cry until I died right above her. You see that no one is interested in you, your friends have so many things going on in life, and your only desire is to sleep. The world has just revolved around you, and now you are no longer in the center of the world, but give it and bring it,”recalls Paulie. And then she admits that with the second baby it is much easier for her. In March, her son Adrian Gray will be one year old, but now she is much more comfortable enduring sleepless nights and other people's whims. “You already understand that this first year is the most calm one,” she smiles.
And one more of the important discoveries - children help to slow down, teach to be patient and conscious.
“My life is in full swing, I need to be in time everywhere, and my daughter:“Mom, where are you in such a hurry? Look what an interesting beetle. " Such a wonderful world - you remember yourself as a child."
About her native Perm, where Natalia Polevshchikova (this is actually the name of the supermodel) recalls fondly. She says that in her childhood, a lot was associated with touching, communicating with nature, inventing entertainment for herself, finding solutions, how to get out of a difficult situation. Modern children have their whole life in gadgets. But the family is trying to fight this. The son is still too small for smartphones and tablets, but the daughter's time around the screen is limited. She is given an hour a day for games and an hour for cartoons in the evening. But only after dinner.
The same approach applies to nutrition. Sweets - in moderation: “If everything is prohibited, it will only get worse. People then live their whole lives in fear of eating something."
About how important it is to talk about love
Paulie recalls that she grew up at a time when there was a completely different relationship between parents and children. Then it was not customary to often talk about feelings or hug, and sometimes we only had to guess about love.
“Now it’s not ashamed to say:“I love you!”,“I understand you!” and "I believe you!" It is very important that your child, no matter how old he is, knows that he will always be supported,”the supermodel is sure.
