Tina Lawson recently revealed she put Beyoncé and Solange Knowles in counseling when they were young to help them Solo deal with her big sister’s fame.
During a convo with Maria Shriver, Mama T said because Bey attained fame at such a young age, she always made it a point to make sure Solange never felt left outside in the cold.
I was very sensitive to that because I grew up where I felt like my mom liked my brother more. And she loved him more.
So I was really sensitive to it. So I had days I devoted to – on Wednesday I took off work and that was Solange’s day. She was a lot younger than Beyoncé.
It was tough because Beyoncé was this little superstar in our city.
I took them to counseling very early. So that the counselor could help Beyoncé be more sensitive to Solange because she couldn’t stand her for a minute.
You know, when they were little, when she was 5, she was all in her stuff, she was trying to hang around her and her friends. 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.

That’s right Mama Tina, be proactive instead of reactive.
Now, she has two beautifully talented and well-rounded girls who love each other dearly.
