Alicia Silverstone Disciplines Her Son In a Very Mature Way
Alicia Silverstone’s parenting technique is seeming to peek the interest of moms and dads alike.
The actress recently opened up to People magazine about how she disciplines her son, Bear Blu, on the rare occasion he needs it. Apparently, it all starts with mutual “respect.”
“Because of the healthy lifestyle that we lead, he didn’t go through terrible twos and terrible threes. There wasn’t really much of that,” she said. “When you’re really meeting their needs, and you really understand what they want and need … I didn’t find any of that.”
She continued: “There [have been] moments where there were things we had to redirect and correct, of course, but it wasn’t the fight that you hear about. The most I have to say is, ‘No thank you, Bear.’ And he goes, ‘OK.’ … That’s my reprimanding.”
“And he’s got it. Because he respects me and I respect him,” she added.
The mom also discussed the importance of being present, saying that her sons “reminds [her] to be absolutely present, because I don’t want to miss a moment of him, and I don’t want him to feel like anything is more important than him.”
We love this strategy! YES, thank you Alicia.
