ERICA REID RELEASES NEW BOOK AND TALKS MOTHERHOOD
Yesterday, L.A. Reid held a book launch party in celebration of his wife, Erica Reid’s, new book ” The Thriving Child.” The event was held in New York City at a private residence and was attended by the couple’s children Addison and Arianna Reid.
Erica recently got a chance to sit down with Modern Mom to talk about her new book and the importance of motherhood.
In the interview, Erica revealed that the book was inspired by her own parenting challenges. She said:
“My journey began with my children. Our children teach us so much in this life – even though we’re older, we really do learn from them. And my children taught me what passion was. That’s how my book came about. I had so much information. I said, I know how my children have benefited from this, I can only imagine the impact it could have for others.”
She also gave a little piece of advice to other parents:
“Enjoy every second. Don’t focus on the negatives, like ‘Oh, I have a newborn and I get no sleep.’ Of course there’s challenges, but there is beauty in all of it. It’s all a phase and it really does present itself today and then it’s gone tomorrow. And you can’t press a rewind button.”
