Jennifer Garner Talks About Kids on Today Show Sept. 2016

Jennifer Garner Admits She's Panicking About Daughter Violet's Teen Years

Jennifer Garner recently sat down for an interview with Today's Natalie Morales and opened up about everything from her new movie, Nine Lives, to raising her three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, whom she shares with ex Ben Affleck. While the actress has been in the spotlight for years, she revealed that she shuts out all that noise when it comes to parenting. "I don't think empathy is something you can drill in someone's head," she said. "You have to have faith that while your kids can seem to be selfish and concerned only about the word 'mine' sometimes, overall, they are watching you really carefully, and if you care about other people, they will too." Jennifer also opened up about 10-year-old Violet's looming teen years, saying, "Her school has a no-social media policy until sixth grade — but I know it's coming soon."
