Jada speaks on putting her family first:
“I had to make choices. Believe me, I would still be on the road with my band, Wicked Wisdom, and making as many movies as I can a year, and doing all sorts of other things if I didn’t have the responsibility of a family. But I have children with their own talents and dreams, and I know I have to be standing next to them for that journey.”

“This is Jaden and Trey watching Will and me doing one of the last episodes of Oprah from another room in the studio. I hope those cupcakes weren’t their lunch!”
“Before Willow shot her ‘Rockstar’ video, she was like, ‘Mommy, I don’t know if I can do this.’ So I was telling her there, ‘Sweetie, you can do this!’ She’s my little drama queen.”
“That’s a late night on the set of HawthoRNe with me, Will, and [costar] Marc Anthony going over one of the season’s first scripts. Will is a ‘ghost producer’ on the show.”
On raising her children in Hollywood:

“Let me tell you what I fear most: Them growing up like I did, in a house with drugs in a war zone, where if I walked out my door I could be shot. Hollywood ain’t nothing compared to that! Growing up in the streets of Baltimore, or the streets of Philly where Will grew up — I’d rather have my kids here. It still makes me nervous that they’re part of something that isn’t totally real, but it’s up to Will and me to teach them what’s real and what’s not.”

“That’s Willow playing the piano when we were all in Madrid before the Justin Bieber concert.”
“Jackie Chan [Jaden’s Karate Kid costar] is such a kind and special person, and he was so good to Jaden.”
“We’re in Oslo, Norway, in the hotel room before we presented President Obama with the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.”
