Jessica Alba says she is ‘the disciplinarian’ in the family
Washington: Jessica Alba reveals she is very strict with her kids, but admires husband Cash Warren for being such a good father.
The ‘Spy Kids 4’ star - who has daughters Honor, three, and Haven, five months, with Warren - admits she is always the bad cop when it comes to laying down the law.
“I’m the disciplinarian. I think it’s because I was kind of a naughty kid myself – I’d push my parents’ buttons and test them to see how much I could get away with,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Parenting magazine.
“Cash, meanwhile, was always the perfect kid - the straight-A student who was everyone’s sweetheart. It was never in him to be naughty. I think I just know, from me being that other kind of child, how to cut off bad behaviour and redirect it.
“So when Honor tries to do something she shouldn’t, I have to say to Cash, ‘Let her know right from the beginning that she can’t’. I’ll put her in time-out and tell her, ‘Think about the choices you’ve made’,” the actress said.
However, the 30-year-old believes she couldn’t have made a better choice when it comes to her husband - who she met on the set of ‘Fantastic Four’ in 2004.
“Cash is a super dad. If I’m with Haven, he’ll make Honor’s lunch or take her to the park. They see movies or draw together – she’ll even watch sports with him,” she added.
