Lori Loughlin Said She 'Never Pushed' Her Kids in Newly Resurfaced Interview Amid College Admissions Scandal

Lori Loughlin‘s commentary on her parenting style is resurfacing following the bombshell report of her alleged involvement in a nationwide college admissions scam.

Lori spoke about her relationship with her kids, Bella Giannulli and Olivia Jade, in an interview with Page Six in 2017.

“You know, I don’t ever do, I never pushed my kids to — I always say, ‘Do the best you can,’” she said at the time.

“For my husband too, their dad, never we were never like, ‘At school you got to get straight A’s.’ We were never those parents. We were always like, ‘You know what? Give it your all. Do the best you can ’cause in life if you give it your all and you do the best you can, that’s it. That’s all you can do.’ And that’s enough, in my opinion, especially with kids. I think we’ve put so much pressure and stress on them. A lot of it is unnecessary and I think it’s important to just have downtime, free time. I never over-scheduled my kids. Never. I always gave them plenty of time to just sit in their playroom and, you know, use their imaginations.”

Lori‘s bail was set at $1 million after allegedly paying a $500,000 bribe to have her two daughters labeled as rowers to get into the University of Southern California.

    Should have pushed them. Instead she and her husband raised a couple of lazy, spoiled idiots.

    Exactly lol.

    I mean, I was raised by a single mother, we were on food stamps at one point, and I went to grad school through hard work and by taking out a lot of loans. My mother didn’t help me with my homework, she didn’t have time for that, so I worked hard. These kids never had to work hard in their lives cause they came from affluent families and even if they didn’t get into college, they still had their parents’ money to fall back on. Its bothersome to see people from first world countries take education for granted.

    For me “giving it my all” and “doing my best” was striving for an A.
    Unless you have a learning disability, getting a low grade means that you didn’t give it your all or do your best at all.

    Maybe she and hubby should have been “those” parents.

  • Hattie McDish

    Her kids preferred partying and their parents still insisted on buying their way to good schools. This is more about the parents egos than anything else.

  • Utope

    I’m with you. My parents couldn’t help me with college. I had to work hard to get into the school of my choice, which involved sleepless nights, and after school go to my part-time job. When I was studying at college, more sleepless nights to get high grades and after that off to my part-time job to try to pay for some of my education now, so I wouldn’t face crippling debt. This is such a huge slap in the face of every single one of us who had to sacrifice time, money and sleep and to those who narrowly missed getting into those schools who did put time and effort in.
