Since Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend (can you feel the anxiety already?!), everyone is in a rush to buy presents, make reservations, and get in the spirit of mom. As such, PEOPLE recently interviewed Jewish actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler about how she’s similar to her mom.
Sigler’s mom began by saying how she and Jamie-Lynn are similar, largely because of their fiery attitudes: “She likes to win an argument…and so do I.” (I mean, who DOESN’T like to win an argument, though?)
But Sigler herself had a lot of amazing things to say about how she was parented, and how that is affecting her own parenting style now, stating:
“The way you parent is like that way you were parented…I’m very affectionate with my son, and I know that that’s how I was raised. there was a lot of “I love you’s”, a lot of of hugging, a lot of kisses, a lot of understanding. I’m glad I can instinctually give that to my son. I can see it already paying off. I’m very grateful.”
Family is important to both women, as Sigler also mentioned her favorite family ritual–which is extremely sweet. She explained:
“We take a yearly picture of my grandmother, my mother’s mom, my mom, and me. And we have it forever, three generations, it’s nice to look back on.”
