Tisha Campbell is returning to television in a new series entitled, “Outmatched” on the Fox network. Tisha’s character, Rita, acts as an advisor to a couple with genius children.

Rumors of infidelity and bankruptcy as the mother of a special needs child, Campbell has had to work hard to achieve her work-life balance. She shared with us why she is excited about this new show, her apprehension about returning to the dating world and why the negative blog posts never throw her off her game.
What are some life lessons you’ve learned in parenting that you can share?
