I don’t think I’m a per­fect par­ent: Alba

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Amer­i­can ac­tor Jes­sica Alba (right) says she of­ten thinks how she can be a bet­ter mother.

“I think maybe be­ing open and cu­ri­ous and try­ing to bet­ter my­self,” the ac­tor told peo­ple.com about her best qual­ity as a par­ent.

“I don’t try to pre­tend like I have all the an­swers and I cer­tainly don’t think I’m per­fect,” added Alba, who has daugh­ters Haven Garner, 5, and Honor Marie, 8, with hus­band Cash War­ren.

“So when my kids say some­thing, in­stead of me re­act­ing, I think about how I can be bet­ter. Some­times, my mind is in too many dif­fer­ent places and I’m not al­ways in the mo­ment,” she said.

The Dark An­gel star says that she is a strict par­ent. “I’m prob­a­bly on the stricter side of le­nient. But I think bound­aries are good for kids and struc­ture,” she said.

“I find that my kids thrive when they know where the bound­aries are and the com­fort zone and where they can be creative and play, “she said.

“But it’s hav­ing enough sleep, hav­ing proper nu­tri­tion that re­ally helps that. And hav­ing enough ac­tiv­ity,” she added.
