How many children do you have and what age groups? I have one daughter, who’s 23. She’s a graduate student at NYU.

What’s your favorite parenting tip? It’s not enough to give things to your kids. You have to teach them to appreciate those things. It’s okay to show your children that they are privileged as long as you teach them not to take anything for granted.

What has surprised you most about parenting? That it’s not getting any easier with years. Parenting is an ongoing project you need to work hard on.

How do you get your kids to eat healthy food? Regrettably, I don’t. I can’t. My daughter spends all her time in Manhattan, at NY University. I hardly see her these days. She’s an adult and eats what she wants.

How do you work exercise into your family’s life? We exercise whenever we get a chance which is not too often. However, we try to walk around as much as possible.

How do you recharge your batteries? I take some time out for myself or spend it with my sister, who’s my best friend and my greatest supporter.
