London: ‘The King`s Speech’ actress Helena Bonham Carter says her life has been changed by parenting classes because she can deal with her children and partner Tim Burton without getting so stressed.

"Calmer, easier, happier parenting is the answer to almost everything. It helped me tremendously with the kids - Billy Ray and Nell - and I also found it invaluable in dealing with Tim. It`s terrific he`s a changed man," a website quoted her as saying.

"What it does is make people think for themselves instead of me, the mother, doing everything for them. Tim used to say, `Where`s such and such?` And I would scurry around looking for it. Now, I make him do it - and the same with my kids. It just stops you running around doing every single thing for them," she added.
