Kris­ten Bell avoids say­ing ‘it’s OK’ to her kids

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

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.
