Jennifer Garner Says It's Been 'A Hard Year For Moms' With Kids At Home

The pandemic has been hard on everyone, but for those of us with kids hanging around at home 100% more than they used to, it has definitely been... an adjustment. Of course, we love our kids, but that doesn't mean that having them home all the time hasn't been tough to get used to, for them AND for us!

Jennifer Garner definitely agrees with that.

Jennifer Garner knows what it's like to have a busy house — she's a mom of three!

Jennifer shares Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, with her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, and she's not afraid to talk about how difficult the pandemic has been having to keep her three kids at home — and not just for the obvious reasons having three kids in your house can be tough for!

Jennifer opened up about the experience in a recent interview.

"This has been such a hard year for moms. We have had to say 'No, no, no.' We've had to watch our kids be home, miss out on things," Jennifer said while promoting her upcoming movie, Yes Day.

Jennifer explained that she feels a lot of empathy for her kids.

"It is one thing to miss out on something as an adult, but to watch your kids miss something they have looked forward to or just how hard it has been to see them isolated and on Zoom every day...," she said.

Luckily for Jennifer, her kids have been making it easy on her!

"My teenager and my adolescent are both lovely. So I have to say, I have it pretty easy as far as that goes," Jennifer revealed.
