Actress Melissa Joan Hart opened up about keeping her sons humble and giving back through the love of Jesus Christ.
In an interview with Fox News Digital, Hart, 47, spoke about raising her three sons with her husband Mark Wilkerson not to be spoiled.
“Of course, when you have children, you want to give them everything. For lack of a better word, you want to spoil [them],” she shared. “Like you want them to have every day be Disneyland, right?”
The “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” star also got candid about the difficulties of trying to teach her boys how “to grow up with the right amount of struggles.”
“There are so many worries and things that, of course, are plaguing our world right now. But I just think if you show them love, even if you don’t have all the things, right? If you just show your kids love, I’ve come to this conclusion, it starts with that.”
Furthermore, Hart claimed, “If you teach your kids love, you show them that they are loved and supported, they will share that with the rest of the world. And that’s all we need right now.”
As well as being a mother and an actress, Hart is also an ambassador for the Christian human aid organization World Vision.
During the interview, she spoke about instilling the importance of helping others in her sons after a recent visit to Zambia with her family.
“I think a lot of it comes from just reminding them of their circumstances and showing them the rest of the world … and the way other people live. Whether it’s next door or it’s across the globe,” Hart shared.
She continued, “We’ve been really fortunate to work with World Vision for a few years now and show them different, very faraway parts of the world and how people live very differently, from what they eat, to how they go to school, to how they sleep.”
Additionally, Hart explained how her faith plays a role in her humanitarian work.
“There is a lot of outreach through churches and, you know, and they learn a lot there as well. But, you know, a big part of it is just letting people know they’re loved. And I think our faith is a big part of that,” she said.
She added, “We’re Christian. And so we are shown love through Jesus, and then we share that love.”
