Serena Williams on mom guilt and parenting

“I have set very good boundaries, but after work, I go straight to my daughter.”

But even tennis legends can feel like they’re not doing enough when it comes to parenting.

In a recent interview with Insider, Serena opened up about the “mom guilt” she feels when it comes to balancing personal time with taking care of Olympia.

“Mom’s guilt is real,” he said. “I always feel so guilty when I’m doing something on my own.”

“I don’t know if I’m a good mother, and I don’t know if my method works, but I’m very practical with my daughter and it was the same with our parents.”

“I have set very good boundaries, but after work, I go straight to my daughter.”

And as we recently learned, sometimes Serena heads home to hit some balls with Olympia too.

Earlier this year, he shared a video of Olympia firing a killer backhand with the caption, “Progress makes better.”

Nothing like enjoying quality time with the family.
