Los Angeles: Actress Angelina Jolie believes her mother was a far better parent to her than she is to her own children.

The ‘Maleficent’ actress, who raises children Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with fiancé Brad Pitt, says her late mother Marcheline Bertrand is her role model and that she couldn`t have done a better job at bringing up her and her brother James Haven.

"It`s hard to think I could be as good a mother as she was. Her whole life was motherhood,” quoted her as saying.

The 39-year-old also admits she prefers to home-school her children because she wants them to have "a bigger picture of life".
