"It’s not about winning or losing. But doing this journey together," Cameron Bure shared.
Candace Cameron Bure has been married to Valeri Bure for more than 25 years, but the actress revealed that she and her husband — who share a daughter Natasha, 24, and sons Lev, 23, and Maksim, 20 — occasionally simply need some time away. The pair is extremely supportive of their children and of one another. Finally, her husband and family are held together by their trust in Jesus Christ as per PEOPLE.
“I just came back from Switzerland two days ago with my husband. We had a little five-day vacation, so that was wonderful. We do like to travel and get away from everything here at home in L.A., and from our kids, as much as we love them. We want alone time, you know what I mean? And our kids are older too,” she told the outlet at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles in 2018.
“The reality is the glue for us is Jesus. It’s the Bible. You know, when there are arguments or we’re compromising and in ways, it’s always like, ‘Well, let’s just go back to the Bible.’ It’s the foundation for us. So it’s not about winning or losing. But doing this journey together,” shared the 47-year-old actor as she revealed more about her relationship with Valeri and her children. “It’s so important to engage with your kids constantly. I talk with them nonstop from really kind of intense and deep conversations to the fluffy stuff and the day-to-day,” Candace said.
“But it’s important to let them know that you’re there for them no matter what. As a mom, I’m always going to have an opinion, but not in a judgmental way, if that makes sense. I’m going to give my best advice as a mother, and my husband as a father. But we want to be open enough that they don’t feel scared to be able to talk to us,” the actor added as she spilled the beans about parenting. Candace mentioned that she along with her partner Valeri believes that it’s the strength in their bond that ensures the children confide in them, fearing no judgment.
When she looks back on her adolescence, the actress recalls how things were very different. “Just with social media and the internet, the world is such a much smaller place. When I was 16, I had to actually travel to Spain to really understand what went on in Spain. Sure, I could read an encyclopedia or a textbook, but I didn’t have immediate access. Our children do. It’s very different. I think they’re exposed to so much more now than when I was a teenager. And some of that is for good, and some of that is not for the best,” she said.
