Solange Knowles, the singer-songwriter and sister to Beyonce Knowles, is revealing her plans to humble her privileged 9-year-old son Julez.
Although Julez has traveled with his 27-year-old mother around the world while rubbing elbows with some of the most notorious names in the entertainment world, Solange said moving him to New Orleans recently was a humbling experience for her son.
"I feel like moving to New Orleans and putting him in school there was a good move in keeping in humble. He's around a lot of sweet, nice normal kids," Solange revealed to New York City radio host Angie Martinez on Hot 97 recently. "And also around kids who get disciplined."
Solange spoke about her methods of disciplining her child.
"If he gets completely out of line, I do the 3 steps. 1 is the look and talk. 2 is taking away something of value to him," she said on Hot 97. "3, you need your butt popped. You don't have to do it often, like twice or three times a year. And he remembers it."
She previously opened up about her 9-year-old son on celebrity blogger Necole Kane's website.
"I have a good kid and I'm really, really blessed in that aspect. He really doesn't give me too much issue," Knowles said. "He knows I don't play that! He's around a lot of parents that are extremely liberal and open."
Solange also previously revealed that she is protective of her son, who partially influenced her to delete her Instagram account.
"Apart of me kind of turns an eye to it and then apart of me really feels like the humanization of artists has really been stripped down," she told concreteloop.com. "I think one of the reasons I actually went off of Instagram because I was on there for a little while was because I would post pictures of my son or my friends and they would be criticizing. My whole thing is that I'm completely fully, capable of handling negativity for myself, but to put that kind of access to negativity behind people who didn't ask for that was really troubling to me."
