Reese Witherspoon spoke out against domestic violence earlier this week at the 2nd World Conference of Women’s Shelters in Washington, D.C., and in an interview with People, the actress and Avon Foundation Global Ambassador revealed how she talks to her children about abuse.
“We talk about domestic violence and what that means,” she said. “Although the concept is somewhat foreign to them, they’re starting to understand that this happens to families in our country and all throughout the world.”
When asked whether she talked to her kids about the 2009 felony assault case involving Chris Brown and Rihanna, she responded, “My daughter knows what happened. My son knows as well. We talk about what is abuse. I think it’s important to talk to our daughters — and our sons — in order to educate them at an early age about what’s appropriate and what is absolutely not acceptable.”
