A mother whose children are so talented they could be Hollywood stars is taking her time with them.
“It’s not as easy as just having one kid,” says mother of three Tina McElroy.
“I want to make sure they feel like part of my life and that I am there for them.
But it’s also about them.”
Tina McEllroy is the mom of three children who are so gifted that they could potentially star in a Hollywood movie.
“There are kids out there who are just as talented as them.
They just have to learn to play by the same rules and be as careful with their energy,” she says.
McEllries children have received an amazing array of tutoring, from playing outside to cooking and cleaning to cooking, painting and reading.
And she says they all have their own style of tutelage.
“They all need to have their unique style of learning,” McEllies mother says.
“Treating them like adults has been such a blessing and so beneficial to my life.”
For McEllry, the process of teaching her children has become a journey through different facets of life.
“My kids have been really good to me,” she explains.
“We’ve had a lot of great relationships.
My husband and I have been married for seven years and we have two kids of our own.
We’ve had so many amazing experiences.
It’s really been a blessing.”
Tina’s first lesson with her children was how to ride a bike.
“You need to be ready,” she recalls telling her eldest son.
“When you’re riding, you need to take the lead and be responsible.
You have to do the best you can and you have to be able to control your body.”
McEllreys son, who is 10, has mastered the basics of riding on a bike, but he still has a lot to learn.
“He’s really learning how to be an adult,” she remembers.
“But when he goes outside, he’s still learning.
He still has to be careful with his body.
It can be a little scary.
You don’t want to get too excited and then he ends up doing something stupid.”
McElroys children have been so successful with their tutoring that Tina has decided to make it a priority for her eldest.
“As soon as they start to ride, it’s the most fun I have had in my entire life,” she tells me.
“So, I feel that it’s important to give them something to do.”
The mother of two children says she’s grateful for the resources available for her children.
“Most of the people in this industry are so hardworking and hardworking parents who are very loving,” she continues.
“That’s really important to me.”
But it wasn’t always this way.
Tina McGee’s story can be traced back to her early years.
She was raised by her mother, who worked two jobs to support the family.
She also grew up on the outskirts of a wealthy community and spent a lot more time at home than her parents.
“At the same time, my parents were really strict about my upbringing,” she admits.
“Not just me, but all of my friends.”
In an interview with Teen Vogue magazine, McEllie explained that she was “very conscious of who I was and who I wanted to be.”
“I was not very confident or very open and I was very shy, and I didn’t want a lot.
So, I wanted it to be perfect.
So my parents would get me a lot.”
In fact, McGees family’s motto is “perfect love.”
“They were very strict about me,” Tina McElly tells Teen V. “And so, I didn�t really see them as much of a mom as a parent.”
In college, McElliys career took a turn for the worse.
“One night, I went to bed late,” she recounts.
“Then my roommate and I were playing video games.
My roommate had gotten really drunk.
I woke up the next morning with no memory of what happened.”
McElynn was devastated.
“The next day I went back to sleep with my heart pounding,” she told Teen Vue.
“On the way home, I passed out in the shower.
I couldn’t see the bathroom, so I threw up all over the place.”
In her freshman year at the University of Southern California, McEloys life changed dramatically.
“Before that, my life had been so perfect,” she reflects.
“Even though I was really good at math, I wasn’t very good at reading, and all of that was so completely taken away from me.”
“There were days that I didn and didn’t understand how it happened,” she adds.
“Now, I can understand it.
But that’s just because I had never been a victim before.”
McMcEllys life then changed dramatically, and so did her relationship with
