Jody Watley Celebrates Milestone With Son

May not get headlines,but it is possible to be an artist in a crazy biz-remain grounded and raise intelligent empowered young adults as well. I’m proud to celebrate my second college graduate, the first being my daughter Lauren. Education, focus, hard work and responsibility are values instilled in both of my children early on as their mother and primary care giver.

Not all show business people are wild and crazy and as well not all children of parents in show business thirst for the limelight or paths of their parents. It’s important and not always easy to empower our children to excel and grow in their own light. Thank you to my daughter for being such a great big sister and for setting a great example early on to focus and get the work done.

Congrats to the college grads of 2018 including my own son Arie who graduated this weekend from Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business. To all parents, single or divorced Moms making it happen no matter what, to the positive siblings and to all fulfilling goals on life’s journey – salute!

My little tribe! Lauren and Arie.
