For young children, separating fact from fiction when it comes to television and movies can oftentimes be a difficult concept for their developing minds to comprehend; add their parents in the leading roles and the utter confusion is completely understandable. Fortunately, for actress Mayim Bialik — who portrayed Blossom on the 90s sitcom — her holistic approach to parenting has kept her 3 ½ -year-old son Miles in the dark as to her television career! “He does not watch television and he does not know that I was on TV,” she tells PARADE.
“He knows that I have meetings that are sometimes early in the morning. He knows that there are scripts, but I don’t think he’s put it together.”
While the family opts out of television time, Mayim admits that Miles has managed to catch “a couple of cartoons or sports when we’ve been at friends’ houses,” but has not grasped the concept of acting as of yet. “I don’t know if he understands the whole people pretending to be someone else with a script, so it’s kind of funny,” she says.
Mayim and her husband Michael are also parents to 11-month-old Fred. Next up for the actress is a role on The Secret Life of the American Teenager as a school guidance counselor.
