Antonia ‘Toya’ Carter: Covers Rolling Out Magazine

Toya Carter is on the cover of Rolling Out Magazine she talks about motherhood, her boutique she opened in New Orleans, and her book she just recently released. Be sure to tune into her show Toya: Family Affair Tuesdays on BET at 10P/9C.

TOYA’S THOUGHTS ON MOTHERHOOD:

“When you have kids at a young age, your kids tend to grow up with you. So, as I was learning, she was learning, which is why she is wise beyond her years. People see my daughter and say, ‘She is so grown.’ We were learning together. I couldn’t just put her off on everybody. That didn’t stop me from being a mother. I told her when she was born, ‘I’m going to give you all I didn’t have and more.’ … Love your kids … listen to them, hear them out. People say, ‘If you didn’t have it, you can’t give it,’ but that’s not true. I didn’t have [anybody], but I’m trying to be there for my daughter. [I tell her to] talk to me because I didn’t have [anyone] to talk to.”
