It isn’t easy to believe that our favorite celebrities are like us. But when it comes to parenting, these celebrities have comparable but unconventional expectations for their children. These celebrities and their restrictions, from forbidding the color pink to banning presents, will have you hugging your kids while they thank their lucky stars they were nurtured the way they were.
While many celebrities provide their children with an affluent lifestyle, others have peculiar standards of parenting. For better or worse, children raised by celebrities have many advantages and a lot of limitations.
Instead of sending her children to a traditional school, Angelina Jolie wants to homeschool them, enabling them to pursue their unique interests. “I think we live in a different age, and the education system hasn’t caught up with our children and our way of life,” Jolie stated in a previous interview.
“I’d rather them go to a museum and learn to play guitar and read and pick a book they love,” Jolie added. Jolie is always telling them to finish their homework as soon as possible to go out and explore. The children are in a French Lycee program, where specialists teach them despite their liberty.
Jennifer Garner describes herself as a “strict mom,” yet one of her principles is to break the rules now and again. The actress explained that she sets aside one day a year to say yes to anything her children desire.
On The View, Garner revealed that she got the concept for “Yes Day” from a book of the same name, in which a mother answers yes to her children’s wishes all day. “It’s just silly,” Garner remarked.” It’s like, yes, we’re going to have ice cream for breakfast. Yes, we’re going to buy a lottery ticket. It’s the longest day of the year.”
But what if the youngsters demand something outlandish? A video shows Garner whizzing down a massive slide that appeared to be at least one story tall, complete with a helmet. She does it.
The Hollywood star couple has three strong and independent daughters. They’ve opted to use more gender-neutral pronouns, beginning with Ryan, who’s declared it his goal to do so, mainly when speaking in general.
The pair wishes to demonstrate that women can also be bosses to their daughters. As compared to always saying “women are bossy” when men aren’t tagged that way. So they try to use more general gender-neutral words at home.
Bringing up children in a more gender-neutral household has become fashionable. In this regard, the king and queen of entertainment are no exception. They want their children to be able to choose their colors instead of being assigned to a gender. As a result, they made pink a no-no in the house.
It isn’t because pink is a more girlie color, but also because Kanye despises the shade, believing that girls dressed in pink are ‘cliched.’ Meanwhile, North may still wear pink occasionally as she gets older, while the megastar couple maintains the ban for the younger children.
Madonna was a stern mother when her children were small, mainly when it came to piles of clothes. She donned the same clothing to school every day until she understood the lesson. Madonna claimed that her eldest daughter, Lourdes, was frequently sloppy, so she would take all of her clothes and place them in a bag. Her daughter would have to earn all of her things back by being orderly.
Being Madonna’s child isn’t what any of us expected. Unlike Madonna’s wild-child persona as a “Material Girl,” she keeps a tidy house and wants her children to follow the rules or face serious consequences.
Growing up as the kids of renowned, wealthy parents might lead to a life of luxury. However, the Kunis-Kutcher duo is mindful of this and does not want their children to be overly worldly. “So far, our tradition is no presents for the kids,” Mila described. “But don’t worry, as the kids age, the presents shall return.”
After the grandparents went a bit overboard with the presents, the couple created this no-gifts scheme, asserting that the children no longer valued one gift. They don’t even know what they’re anticipating. All they know is that they’re expecting something. Kunis went on to say that they’d instead give just one item as a gift, or even better, give to charity.
When Gisele gave birth to her son Benjamin, she ditched the diapers in favor of a more natural hygiene method primarily because it was highly eco-friendly, as Gisele said, and diapers destroy the environment. What happens to this garbage?
Gisele pulled off the nearly impossible feat of putting her son’s bathroom time on a routine. She would carefully check Benjamin for toilet time signs while he walked around naked all day. He always needed to go after eating, so she would stay close to a restroom and say, “Give it about five minutes, then bang!” Gisele joked.
Kelly is stern regarding basic etiquette, irrespective of whether they are the best at athletics or academics. She believes that her children must treat others with respect. When her children receive gifts, Ripa makes them write thank you notes. “The art of please and thank you never goes out of style,” she says.
She is so rigid about the letters that her son Michael has requested that he not get any gifts for his birthday. “I take thank you notes very seriously, to the point where my oldest son, Michael, has begged not to get birthday presents any longer because he doesn’t want to deal with thank you letters.”
There's a reason why dads are often thought to be silly and fun parents, while…
