Denise Richards Has ‘Challenging’ And Endless’ Conversations With Her Teens About Social Media

Denise Richards continues to have (endless) conversations with her teen daughters, Sam, 17, and Lola, 15, when it comes to social media.

Richards goes on to share how she has had to create time to have the conversation — especially during the pandemic — to ensure her teen’s mental health.

“I really do think it’s not healthy for kids at all and there’s a responsibility with it,” says the former RHOBH actress.

Richards, who also works with the Quantum Reach Foundation, founded by husband Aaron Phypers, witnesses how damaging social media can be on a daily basis.

“When I get negative comments, there’s times where even at my age,” she says, “it still hurts and it’s hard.”She adds, “I’m still having those conversations, and they’re endless, and it’s very challenging.”

But on a lighter note, the pandemic has helped her foster more of these discussions with her family.

“I feel that this forced us all to just slow down,” says Richards. “And for that, I am so grateful, because it was really nice to have that quality time.”

Richard’s latest project isTimecrafters: The Treasure of Pirate’s Cove, which was made available everywhere last weekend.

“It’s fun for me to do a movie that my youngest daughter can watch, because a lot of the movies I have done in the past she can’t—except for the Christmas ones,” admitted Richards.

She adds her 9-year-old daughter, Eloise, will be tuning into watch but Richards will most likely be nowhere to be found when she does.

“I really do not like to watch my stuff,” says Richards. “I haven’t seen most of my stuff since the beginning of my career when I didn’t know you can leave after the lights go down. It’s painful to watch myself,” she laughs.
