Parenting tips as shared by Mila Kunis
New parents have a lot to learn especially when they plan to expand their family. Learn about some parenting tips that Kunis shared with Laura Prepon during an exclusive interview.
Prepon struggled to go back to work because she had to leave her daughter, Ella, behind. Kunis shared with her that she should never show the kids that going to work was a "bummer."
On April 17, Friday, the "Orange Is the New Black" alum told "Us Weekly" that her Kunis told her to say it in a positive way. While she promotes her book, "You and I, as Mothers: A Raw and Honest Guide to Motherhood," the Screen Actors Guild Award winner explained that it works well with her two kids.
She said Kunis' two children with Ashton Kutcher, Wyatt, five, and Dimitri, three, do not associate their mother's departure as something bad. Prepon explained that it is an upbeat and positive way so her kids could link being successful and having a job into something positive.
Quality over quantity
Forty-year-old "Stash Plan" author also shared what she had learned from another star included in her "mom squad." She said that Amber Tamblyn shared with her that parents should choose quality over quantity.
Prepon said of Tamblyn's advice that while she has to leave and go to her job, she makes sure to spend quality time with her kids when she is with her family. It means that during family time, all distractions are taken out of the picture. She would not be checking her emails nor answering calls.
Have date nights
The New Jersey native makes sure to get date nights every night at home. Prepon said that she always makes dinner, and Foster has been learning how to cook as well. After they put their toddler down, the duo has dinner together.
