Jim's Advice On Raising Kids With Wife
Raising kids with either of the two parents in the job market is already hard enough, on top of it, running a household where both husband and wife work just grows the pressure.
But everything comes easy for CNN’s very own Jim, age 48, has mastered the art of parenting. With the help of his wife, Gloria Riviera-Scott, he has achieved the seemingly impossible act of keeping everyone happy.

And in the March 2018 interview with Fatherly, the Yale University alum let the world know his secret.
He prefaced his advice on making time for kids by mentioning the long and unpredictable schedules he and his wife have to put in at work. And then he quickly followed up with:
"I take them to school pretty much every day. I drive them and like to take them right into their classrooms. That gives me a chance to interact with their teachers and their friends."
For him, weekends with his kids are equally important because it allows them to bond over “sports, activities and little adventures.”
Jim and his wife, Gloria - who’s an NBC News Correspondent - are proud parents of three kids: Tristan (age 9), Caden (age 7) and Sinclair (age 2). Both of their latter kids were home-delivered.
They had married in 2006 after meeting three years earlier while both of them were on assignment in Baghdad.
Wife Thoughts: "Jim's Father Remains His Father"
Although, the Yale University alum’s fatherly qualities are praiseworthy, how he was raised by his own parents is something noteworthy. Especially, his relationship with father has more or less shaped the father he is today.

Even his wife, Gloria has spoken about his relationship with his father. In the 2014 interview with Washingtonian, Gloria quipped:
"Jim’s father was his best man and remains his best friend."
No wonder, Jim never fails to dedicate a post to his father, every year when the death anniversary comes around.
