Jennifer Lopez discovered some home truths about parenting after spending quality time with her twins during the Covid-19 lockdown. 

The period of self-isolation with 12-year-old Max and Emme led to a few soul-searching chats about the type of parent she is to them. 

During a candid interview with WSJ. Magazine, the singer and actress revealed her children made it clear they had problems with the amount of time she spends working, telling the magazine: 

"You thought you were doing okay but you're rushing around... and they're going to school and we're all on our devices. We're providing this awesome life for them but at the same time, they need us in a different way. We have to slow down and we have to connect more and I don't want to miss things".
