All parents can confirm that parenting is a tedious full-time job. In fact, there are more than 100 best-selling books to walk parents through this new phase of their lives. Parents are tasked with a very difficult job, so they, of course, are interested in as many tips and tricks as they can get, whether they come from a therapist or their favorite celebrity.
The Bright Side team has investigated the parent-child relationship of many celebrities and their children and gathered 12 parenting tips for you to pick from.
1. Kim Kardashian
It is normal for brothers and sisters to be jealous of each other. Hence, the term “sibling rivalry.” To find a way around this phenomenon, Kim Kardashian came up with a genius trick. As she breastfed baby Saint, she would hide a milk box with a straw in her bra for her elder daughter North.
2. Chrissy Teigen
Some babies enjoy bath time, but others do not. Among Chrissy Teigen’s many effective parenting hacks is bathing your little one with a swaddle blanket. This trick will soothe a cranky baby who might not feel like bathing at that moment.
3. Sarah Michelle Gellar
A lot of kids are picky eaters. They select their meals based on color, texture, and presentation before even trying them. This is how Sarah Michelle Gellar came up with a clever solution to end food waste at home. She made her children pay, from their allowance, for the food they asked for but didn’t eat.
4. Busy Philipps
Speaking of sibling rivalry and picky eaters, Busy Philipps combines these 2 sibling characteristics to get her kids to be healthier. By using the competition between her seedlings, she makes her children compete at eating veggies, and the winner is whoever finishes their broccoli first.
5. Blake Lively
Blake Lively enjoys the idea of placing a comment box at home, like the ones we always find at restaurants and hotels. This way, her kids have a way to place their suggestions anonymously about what they like, what they don’t, and what improvement they want to see in the household.
6. Hilary Duff
This is not the typical parenting tip about being extra ready and packing different outfits for your kid. Hilary Duff, like most mothers, puts her child first and always packs extra for him. The parenting advice she wants to share, however, is to have a change of clothes for herself in the bag whenever she’s out with her child.
7. Chance The Rapper
In order to ensure a tear-free hair brushing experience for his daughter, Chance the Rapper figured out a clever hack. His recipe is made up of water, Argan oil, shea butter, and an extremely wide-toothed comb. With this hack, kids’ hair will be shiny and healthy, and they avoid tangles and tears.
8. Tamera Mowry
Tamera Mowry suggests setting up a bedtime routine for your little ones to help make bedtime a little easier and more enjoyable. Having a consistent bedtime, with the aid of a sound machine, will, according to Mowry, help the kids have a consistent peaceful sleep routine.
9. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
To make the mission of raising the second child easier than raising the first, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis got their baby a robot crib to help their son get a good night’s sleep. According to the couple, the special crib is incredible. The louder the child cries, the faster it responds and puts the child back to sleep.
10. Jenna Fischer
There was an awesome hack that Jenna Fischer shared for having a fun adventure with toddlers in an unlikely, yet totally fun place: Ikea. The actress shared that she lived on a hill with no sidewalk. She would drive to Ikea, get herself some coffee, and let her son Weston wander off and discover the place. According to her, everything was soft and super safe, and she had nothing to worry about.
11. Elka Graham
Elka (Graham) Whalan, an Olympic competition swimmer and mother of 4 has a brilliant trick for limiting her children’s junk food intake. Frequently, she uses the terms “sometimes food” and “everyday food” at home to help her children distinguish between the nutritional values of cookies and candy, on the one hand, and veggies and fruits, on the other.
12. Jessica Biel
Parents often prioritize their children’s health and well-being over themselves which leaves them restless and hungry. In these cases, multitasking is Jessica Biel’s forte, as she leads by example. She admitted that she eats in the shower to free up some time on her schedule.
