Kate Hud­son threw out par­ent­ing man­u­als

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Kate Hud­son “threw ev­ery kind of par­ent­ing man­ual out of the win­dow” when she be­came a mother. The ‘Bride Wars’ star - who has 13-year-old son Ry­der and Bing­ham, six, from pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ships - ad­mits it has been tough rais­ing her kids as a sin­gle mother. She said: “As a sin­gle mum of two you have to work pretty hard. The lo­gis­tics of where we film can be chal­leng­ing when you’re rais­ing chil­dren. Par­ent­ing shifts as your kids shift. The best thing for me has been throw­ing any kind of par­ent­ing man­ual out of the win­dow. It’s a very dif­fer­ent re­la­tion­ship when your kids be­come teenagers. Ry­der’s 13 now - how I raise him is very dif­fer­ent from Bing, who’s 6, be­cause they’re very dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ties.” And the 38-year-old ac­tress has praised her mother Goldie Hawn and step­fa­ther Kurt Rus­sell for al­ways want­ing the best for her and her sib­lings. She added: “My par­ents wanted us to be the best we could be. But it was never an ex­pec­ta­tion we felt that we couldn’t reach. My mum put me in dance class when I was re­ally young and I went four or five times a week. When you’re young and you have that dis­ci­pline, you feel con­nected to be­ing ac­tive. I’m fas­ci­nated by what makes peo­ple feel happy. It’s some­thing that my mum and I are very in tune to. What be­ing ac­tive does for our brain is truly one of the most ben­e­fi­cial things we can do to pro­mote hap­pi­ness.” And Kate hasn’t ruled out hav­ing more chil­dren in the fu­ture. She told The Times mag­a­zine: “I love be­ing re­ally busy. I’d like to do a triathlon - that’s a bucket-lis­ter. I want to have more kids. But I’m start­ing to think about what re­ally makes me happy. I’ve worked solidly since right out of high school and I have this worker men­tal­ity. I don’t think I could ever not work. I’ll al­ways fig­ure some­thing out.”
