London: Rocker Sheryl Crow bribes her two sons - Wyatt Steven and Levi James - for eating healthy food.

"I`m all about bribery when it comes to my little kids eating, particularly my four-year- old. `If you`ll try this, Wyatt, you can have some of this.` That`s how we do it," contactmusic.com quoted Crow as saying.

The 49-year-old, who is currently dating "Smokestack" guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, also finds disciplining her children a difficult exercise, but was reassured by her mother.

"My mom said it`s going to hurt you a lot more than it`s going to hurt them. When I would get upset about putting him in a time out or being stern with him as Wyatt was going through the terrible twos and challenging threes, she would say, `Those things are not going to be memorable for him. What`s memorable for him is gonna be the feeling of safety`," she said.
