Megan Fox Has Severe Mom Guilt

megan foxMegan Fox is a mom to two boys under 2 with husband Brian Austin Green. Bodhi Ransom is 4 months old and Noah Shannon is 21 months old. She also stars in the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I wonder how her kids will feel about that when they are old enough to be into those kinds of things. For the record, she doesn't let the kids watch much TV.

Fox describes her life as chaos and despite her best efforts, she's just like the rest of us and has a ton of that mom guilt. But don't worry. She's not saying anything to make us dislike her like Gwyneth Paltrow did. In fact, I like Megan as a mom a lot.

Fox is a hands-on type of parent. She said:

As a mom it’s hard because I don’t feel like I’m ever giving either one of them 100 percent of my attention or 100 percent of myself, so I carry a lot of guilt.

Do they each understand how special they are and how much I love them? And are they understanding that they’re unique? It’s hard to make each one feel like an individual when you have to raise them together and manage them together all of the time.

That resonates with me very much since I have twins. It's a feeling many of us, twins or not, completely relate to.

Megan and Brian have a no computers, no cell phones rule until the kids are in 8th grade. But she does let them watch family friendly movies once in a while. I love how mindful she seems of all her parenting decisions.

I’m excited for the future, to see them be brothers and be best friends and I know that there’s gonna be lots of fighting, but there’s also gonna be lots of hugs and kisses.

I have to make one movie a year because I have to invest in their future and I have to be able to pay their way through college and be able to provide for them. It’s all about trying to spend as little time away from my kids as possible.

The mom guilt strikes all of us at one time or another. That's why we have to support and encourage each other no matter our situations.

Are you surprised to hear that Megan Fox has mom guilt? Doesn't she seem so down-to-earth?
