Sunshine Cruz stressed that she always finds ways to balance work and taking care of her daughters. “[Being a] Working mom is really hard, mahirap talaga pero kailangan lang you have to explain to your kids and they should understand the situation. Nong una kasi ‘yung mga kids ko every time na I have work parang nagiging malungkot sila so in-explain ko sa kanila na, ‘Anak you should be thankful that mommy has work kasi kung walang trabaho si mommy wala tayong kakainin, hindi tayo makakain sa masarap na restaurant, hindi ko kayo mabibli ng maayos na damit.’ Sabi ko, ‘It's a blessing and you should be praying na mommy will have lots of projects and work,’ so naiintidihan naman nila,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph. 

She added, “Pero ako naman pag may work like nito walang taping, ang taping is M-W-F minsan hindi nga M-W-F minsan once a week lang, minsan twice a week so I see to it na kasama ko sila, nagma-malling kami kung hindi man sa bahay kami, sa kwarto nanood kami ng TV, nagkwekwentuhan kami, we catch up so okay naman, adjusted ‘yung mga kids walang problem. Sila pa nga ‘yung nagsasabi sa akin na ‘Mom ha, we prayed for you last night to have more projects.”

The actress recently posted a video on Instagram of her 10-year-old daughter Samantha Montano singing the international hit song “Bang Bang”. Sunshine remarked that she is so proud of her talented daughter. “Ang galing ‘yung 10 years old ako hindi ako makakanta ng ganon eh tapos wala pa siyang proper training siya lang ‘yun siya lang mag-isa nakaka-proud talaga dahil talagang ang galing kahit ako talagang ‘My gosh’ kaya ako ni-repost ko ‘yun.”

113014-sunshine_main.jpgWould she allow her daughter to join showbiz? “Tinatanong ko nanan siya ‘Would you like to join showbiz?’ Pero unang-una she can’t kasi nag-aaral pa ng tagalog hindi pa masyadong marunong mag-tagalog pero ang dream niya is to join The Voice Kids gusto niyang mag-audition so parang ang sa akin sabi ko nga, ‘You have to prepare for that. If you want to join siyempre hindi naman tayo basta-basta sasabak diyan.’ In-explain ko sa kanya na lagi na merong natatalo, meron nanalo sa mga ganyang competition basta sa puso mo dapat prepared so okay naman sa ngayon practice siya ng practice,” she commented.

But she stressed that her daughter knows that finishing school is her top priority. “Bata pa naman, long way to go for her basta ang sinasabi nila actually pag tinatanong sila if they want to join showbiz sinasabi nila, ‘After they finished studies’ so alam naman nila ‘yung prioridad nila na nakakatuwa para sa akin na oh kampante ako na at least an early age alam na ng mga kids ko, alam na nila ‘yung priority nila.”

Sunshine said that she wants to prepare her daughter really well if the latter decides to audition for The Voice. Gusto ko naman na prepared ‘yung anak ko. Gusto ko naman na may iikot na upuan so ano practice muna kasi parang ang feeling ko kailangan hahasain pa ang anak ko dahil alam kong meron pa siyang i-improve.”
