We as mere mortals are simply lacking in the expertise needed to raise children. Luckily, that’s why we have celebrities. These better-than-human beings are always ready and willing to tell us what they’re doing right and what we’re doing wrong. Learn from them and be the best parent you can be!
Build your child up. Don’t discipline them to the point it impacts their self-esteem.
Alec Baldwin can be your guide.
Let Goop be in charge.
It just seems easier that way. Because hell hath no fury like Gwyneth Paltrow when Chris Martin takes the kids to McDonald’s.
Make sure your kids know the importance of sunscreen.
Even though Brooke was an adult woman, dad Hulk Hogan made sure to keep her safe from the sun’s rays!
Celebrate your child for who and what they are.
Like Joe Simpson! “Jessica never tries to be sexy. She just is sexy. If you put her in a T-shirt or you put her in a bustier, she’s sexy in both. She’s got double D’s! You can’t cover those suckers up!”
Or like Hulk Hogan, who is crushing this list with his parenting skillz.Be improbably hot. Preferably the kind of hot that can only be obtained by bathing in virgin blood or possessing a portrait in your attic that does your aging for you. We can only imagine it is this agelessly shared hotness that has kept Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet such a successfully divorced couple of parents.
Ensure your child has a healthy body image.
Ryan O’Neal did a masterful job of this by hitting on his daughter Tatum at girlfriend Farrah Fawcett’s funeral.
“I had just put the casket in the hearse and was watching it drive away,” he says, “when a beautiful blonde woman comes up and embraces me. I said to her, ’You have a drink on you? You have a car?’ She said, ’Daddy, it’s me — Tatum!’ I was just trying to be funny with a strange Swedish woman, and it’s my daughter. It’s so sick.”
It’s OK to take a break.
And not just a pedicure or hour of me-time. Farrah Abraham (she wrote a book so she’s definitely an expert at all this) advocates taking an extended break from your child. “’She has her own life and is doing her own thing, and I’m doing mine,” she told InTouch about her at the time four-year-old daughter.
Put your children in uncomfortable situations.
It will only make them stronger! For instance, Kim Kardashian has no problem bringing North West to Fashion Week (even if she looks terrified the whole time).
