White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has one of the toughest jobs in the Administration. Every day she faces queries from reporters who field her with questions on complex issues where she must respond with professionalism, honesty and tact.

Some of those reporters are less-agreeable than others. But Sanders is used to handling tough jobs. In fact, her daytime job pales in comparison to her job at home. Sanders, 35, is the mother of three children, all of them six years old or younger.

The Daily Wire caught up with Sanders during a lull in her day and asked her whether “dealing with your children on an onerous day or dealing with Jim Acosta” is harder. Acosta works for CNN and is known in the press room for his less-than-cooperative attitude.

“Both of them whine pretty regularly,” said Sanders, in comparing Acosta to her kids. “They both like to ask the same questions and sometimes their tone needs to be adjusted a little bit. So I think that having kids has prepared me for the job that I have right now.”

She added, “In all seriousness. I think that having kids is great preparation for anything – especially a job you need patience for and they have certainly prepared me for this one.”

Sanders said that it’s not easy juggling a full home life with a busy day job, but she utilizes a key principle and habit that make it possible.

“I try to make sure I’m very intentional with the time that I have with my kids,” she said, adding that when she’s with them, she tries to set her phone aside, and leave her work outside the home.

“I’m gonna' miss some of the moments, but the ones that I do have, I really try to focus on them, put my phone aside, block out some of the stress of work and really focus my time and attention on what they want to talk about and really zero in on them,” she added.
