Mayim Bialik’s parenting rules do not sound that bad for most children. You are home-schooled so you don’t have to worry about bullies or fitting in. You have your own routine so you can wake up and go to sleep in your time. You can create your own schedule at your leisure. You also can learn what you enjoy. Most kids would want to be Bialik’s kids.
But that doesn’t mean simply having endless amounts of free time. There are chores to be done. They need to clean up after themselves and even have errands to run. Other family members can help the kids with their chores, but there’s no getting out of cleaning and tidying. This just proves that even in wealthy households like Bialik’s, there are chores to be done.
Generally, Mayim Bialik has taken an apprehensive approach to vaccinations and their effects. Interestingly, while Mayim Bialik generally avoided vaccinating her kids, during the COVID-19 pandemic, she had her kids vaccinated. There was a bit of controversy that came up during this time as it was unclear whether Bialik wanted her sons to get the jab or not.
Afterward, Bialik stated her kids had been vaccinated and that theirs had just been delayed. Bialik maintains that she's not an anti-vaxxer, she just chooses to not speak publically on her beliefs regarding the jabs. We get where she's coming from — why add fuel to the fire?
While most kids look forward to the weekend so they can see their friends or have a break from school, we’re guessing one of the main reasons Bialik’s sons eagerly anticipate the weekend is to have a bite of sweet candy. Generally, “The Big Bang Theory” star thinks that children should have quite a bit of freedom, but this does not apply to what they eat.
Not only were her sons raised vegan, but they also had limitations on eating candy. As said, candy was reserved for Shabbat. While Shabbat is not generally associated with eating candy, in the Bialik household it is one good thing about the weekend. At least we know that Bialik has not had to spend a fortune on dentist bills.
Take a Joke!
Mayim Bialik rose to fame with the two sitcoms, “Blossom” and “The Big Bang Theory”. Naturally, the actress can take a joke. Do not be deceived by her deadpan expression or serious demeanor on “The Big Bang Theory.” One of the more endearing qualities of Bialik’s parenting is she likes to have fun with her sons and enjoys a good joke.
She encourages a cheerful spirit in the house and enjoys getting up to games and crazy antics with her offspring like dressing up in costumes. The actress cultivates a cheerful spirit by keeping things light in the home. The brood mock and joke with each other. Even Mommy dearest is not exempt from mockery. This must be one of the perks of having a sitcom mom.
We are all familiar with the movie “Yes Man”. Well, it seems that the star of the sitcom “Blossom” should really have been the star of the film’s sequel, “Yes Woman”. This is because Bialik believes in always saying yes to her young. She considers it effective in getting her young to stop crying. She simply says ‘yes’ and gives them what they want.
Saying yes all the time encourages a deep bond and emotional connection between the mother and child. Not everyone agrees. If babies and children do not get what they want and are left alone, they learn independence and figure out how to make themselves happy. Still, we all watched the film “Yes Man” and, like Jim Carrey, know the dangers of saying yes to everything.
