Los Angeles: Pop diva Christina Aguilera is a strict mother who loves discipline and refuses to let two-year-old son Max behave like a "brat".

The `Not Myself Tonight` singer is quite strict with her son, with her husband Jordan Bratman, because she wants him to be a polite little boy but admits temper tantrums are a part of growing up, Access Hollywood online reported.

"No child is terrible. When you`re at that age you`re just learning how to express yourself and balance all these emotions and feelings. I`m definitely an understanding mom, but discipline is a big thing for me too. I`m not raising no brat!" said Aguilera.

Although she recently canceled her `Bionic` tour, the 29-year-old singer plans to go on the road again and take Max with her, even though it may prove difficult at times.

"I`ve got my mommy concerns, you know, bedtime and schedules and time differences. It`s going to be a little crazy and a little cranky at times I`m sure, but I`m not the first person to do it and I won`t be the last. We`ll find our comfort zone with it," said Aguilera.
