Tina Knowles Lawson has revealed that she took Beyoncé and Solange to counseling as children to help them deal with fame. Lawson spoke to Maria Shriver during a Facebook discussion and opened up about her children’s upbringing, saying, “I had days that I devoted to [each of them]. On Wednesdays, I took off from work and that was Solange’s day. She was a lot younger than Beyoncé and it was tough because [Beyoncé] was five years older and Beyoncé was this little superstar in our city.”

She continued, “I took them to counseling so that, very early, the counselor could help Beyoncé be more sensitive to Solange. She couldn’t stand her for a minute. You know, they were little, [Solange] was all in her stuff, trying to hang around her and her friends and Beyoncé was really irritated but it made her more sensitive to who her sister was and what she had to deal with because of her. I just spent a lot of time teaching my girls not to be insecure just because there was another girl around because you are the most beautiful thing going. I think that’s really important.”

  • Lawson added, “My family was like you’re going to make them crazy because they’re too young for you to take them, but I wanted Beyoncé to be sensitive to the fact that Solange had to deal with being a little bit in her shadow. It made her way more sensitive and protected and they’re still fiercely protective of each other.”
