Actress Christy Chung (鍾麗緹) made a rare appearance with her daughters to cover a magazine for a Mother’s Day event. The mother of three had married two times, both which ended in divorce. As a single parent, Christy has to act as both mother and father to her three daughters, but the 43-year-old is content with her multi-layered lifestyle, explaining that her three daughters have breathed new life into her.
“I like to exercise, eat candy, go to Disneyland, swim. When my three daughters were born, they brought me many childhood memories. They are the reasons why I can be young and happy.”
Christy’s parenting methods are rather simple – she teaches the kids how to think, not how to do. “I will give them space so they can discover their own personality and ideals. If I can teach them [mine], they’d just be copies of me. I don’t want my daughters to be duplicates of me.”
Christy commented, “My eldest daughter Yasmine is 16 years old and she is a perfectionist. She has good time management, lives a healthy lifestyle, and enjoys exercising. She kind of reminds me of myself when I was her age. My second daughter Jaden and third daughter Cayla, however, are rather mischievous. So unlike me,” she added with a laugh. “However, Jaden has sports talent, while Cayla is an optimistic thinker.”
The key to building better relationships with her children is to spend more time with them. Christy said she recently went on a vacation with Yasmine. The mother and daughter grew much closer and interacted like best friends. Christy revealed that Yasmine already has a boyfriend, but she would not meddle into her daughter’s relationships. “Their relationship is very pure. They only go out to the movies, do homework, or volunteer in extracurricular activities together. She tells me everything.”
