Kristen Bell avoids saying ‘it’s OK’ to her kids
Actor Kristen Bell (left) says she does not like using the phrase “it’s OK” when she is around her toddlers. According to Entertainment Tonight, the 36-year-old actor, who was the voice of Anna in the animated film Frozen, says that she feels these words often leave children confused and they cannot understand what they feel when they hear it.
“I do like re-evaluating how much we say to them, ‘It’s OK’, because it weirdly shuts down their ability to have emotions. Because they think, ‘It’s OK. I shouldn’t be embarrassed. I shouldn’t be sad.’ So now when they get sad or embarrassed, I say, ‘That’s a stinky feeling ? I’ve felt it, too.’ I just let them experience it, and hopefully it’ll make healthy adults (sic),” says Bell. The Bad Moms star has two daughters, Lincoln, four, and Delta, two.
