With two toddlers under the age of three, we’d say Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are qualified to offer up a parenting tip or two!
As you probably know, the fun-loving duo shares two daughters Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 16 months.
While attending the Bump Moms: Movers + Makers luncheon in El Lay, the 35-year-old actress told Us Weekly one major lesson the couple has learned:
“One thing I’ve learned as a mom is it’s really important to monitor when they are able to receive your information. We wait until they calm down and then we talk to them.”
We think that’s valuable advice for almost any ol’ confrontation, wouldn’t you say?
Providing a rare update on the little ones, Miz Bell said her kiddos are already developing distinct personalities:
“It seems like our firstborn is more like me, and our second one is a little more like him. But that’s because the second one is a little slugger. She’s like, ├óΓé¼╦£When in doubt, knock them out!’ We’re working on that. That may or may not have been my husband’s motto in his twenties, I don’t know!”
She added that she tries to teach her girls not to fight with each other:
“They love each other. We have very strict rules in our family about how we treat people with respect, especially our family members. ├óΓé¼┬ª We are going to be with each other in the long haul, so it’s important to always be respectful and treat your sister the way you want to be treated.”
BRB while we call our siblings to remind them how much they love us…
