Ruffa Gutierrez opened up about the parenting style of her mother Anabelle Rama.
KAMI learned that the actress is trying not to imitate Anabelle’s way of being a mother, particularly when it comes to the love life of her children.
In an interview with PUSH, Ruffa said that Anabelle was a “terror mom.”
“I don't want to be an Anabelle Rama because I know how it feels like to have a terror mom na pag-holding hands ko pa lang dati talagang ‘ahhh’ nagtataray-taray na siya dun sa set, right?
“So I believe that the kids naman now are more well-educated in the sense na they're given all of the facts na, ‘O, ito ang mga dapat mong gawin, ito ang mga do's and don'ts. Nasasayo na 'yun kung ano ang gusto mong gawin,’" she admitted.
She added that she wants her children to be good people.
"All I always tell Lorin is be a God-fearing individual. Be positive. Be an inspiration to others. Be a role model. Kasi in this day and age, it's such a scary world to grow up in now.
“Back in the day, I enjoyed my childhood. Wala pa tayong telephones, wala pa tayong social media. Now everyone's on their phones.
“You don't get to converse with other people so I always tell her enjoy what's left of your childhood. Having responsibilities like me, 'di mo na ma-eenjoy 'yun eh.
“So enjoy mo na 'yung pagiging teenager mo. Kung may mag-ask sa 'yo, kung may magbigay sa'yo ng flowers, 'wag kang ma-excite kasi it will be the first sa hundreds na magbibigay sa'yo ng flowers. 'Wag kang ma-excite sa macaroons at sa flowers," Ruffa explained.
The veteran actress and former beauty queen has two daughters – Lorin Gabriella and Venezia Loran.
The girls’ father is Yilmaz Bektas, a Turkish businessman.
Ruffa and Yilmaz got married in 2003.
However, they announced their separation in 2007.
