Jessica Alba knows a thing or two about raising kids. She's also super sexy on the cover of Entertainment Weekly!
Not only does she have two beautiful children, Honor, five, and Haven, two-and-a-half, with hubby Cash Warren, but she also has her Honest Company line of eco-friendly baby products!
So when she has an opinion on child-rearing, we think it's worth a listen.
Jessica has some specific feelings about hiring strangers as nannies, and those feelings aren't good!
An inside source said:
"Jessica is really against the idea of people hiring strangers as nannies. She finds it unseemly and undignified. Instead, Jessica says parents should find a younger member of their extended family to take care of their kids part-time because they are sure to be more loving and connected to them."
But it's not only about weird strangers!
Hiring family members is good for your wallet too!
The source continued:
"Jess says an added benefit is that you don’t have to pay family members nearly as much as people you get through employment services!"
That's always a good idea!
The best part about this advice is Jessica practices what she preaches. The source said:
"Jessica wishes people would find a suitable relative to step in and help out instead, and says such a structure promotes family closeness. Her two cousins work for her as an assistant and a nanny and the situation is working out great for the busy mom. She has complete security in knowing that her cousins will love and protect her children as much as she does."
Well that's just great! We're glad that worked out for her like that.
There's no better feeling than knowing your kids are being well cared for by people who love them just as much as you do!
Thanks for the great advice, Jessica!
