Jessica Alba’s Naughty Parenting Secrets

Parenting Early Years magazine April 2012Don’t be fooled by the pretty face; when it comes to child-rearing, actress Jessica Alba isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and get dirty.

When it comes to parenting, Jessica Alba has dubbed herself the heavy. In the April issue of Parenting Early Years magazine, the mother of two daughters, 3-year-old Honor and 8-month-old Haven, describes how her own rebellious streak as a child has played a big role in how she’s raising her own kids.

“I think it’s because I was kind of a naughty kid myself,” Alba tells the magazine. “I’d push my parents’ buttons and test them to see how much I could get away with … I think I just know, from me being that [naughty] kind of child, how to cut off bad behavior and redirect it.”

Still, Alba admits, husband Cash Warren has to be instructed in the ways of discipline. “Cash, meanwhile, was always the perfect kid,” she dishes, “the straight-A student who was everyone’s sweetheart. It was never in him to be naughty … So when Honor tries to do something she shouldn’t, I have to say to Cash, ‘Let her know right from the beginning that she can’t.’”

The 30-year-old actress practices what she preaches in her own disciplining. Of a typical discipline encounter with Honor, Alba explains, “I’ll put her in a timeout and tell her, ‘Think about the choices you’ve made.’ Then I’ll come back and say, ‘Now it’s time to stop crying and think.’ Then I’ll come back again and ask her, ‘Now, what did you learn?’”

That’s some serious follow-through.

How do you shoulder the roller coaster of disciplining your children?
