What started with a playful audience interaction between Drew Barrymore and a green-haired fan turned into a powerful conversation about parenting, authenticity, and bravery.
Drew spotted this fan in the audience, noting playfully how her own daughter wanted to dye her hair a funky color.
Then, Drew realized that the fan was in attendance with her mom! So she started to ask a few questions.
First, Drew Barrymore was curious about when her mom let her dye her hair such a playful color. Then, the conversation got a bit deeper.
“How do you know? Like, you may be afraid—” Drew started to ask.
“You don’t ever know the right answer, period, ever,” this mom shared about parenting. “Even after you make it, you just don’t know.”
“So how do you be brave,” Drew Barrymore responded.
“You just do it. That’s what bravery is, right? It’s not knowing and doing it anyway,” this thoughtful mom encouraged.
It was a truly powerful moment, and the audience erupted in cheers. Other audience members shared their journey with empowering their children’s individuality.
It’s not always easy to walk your own path, but these parents know the power of encouragement. What a wonderful video. Drew Barrymore is so brilliant at facilitating these important conversations.
