Kunis knows that no one is perfect and being a parent is something new to her. So instead of beating yourself up about what you did or didn’t do for your child, let it go and keep being the best parent you can.

8. If her kids are happy and healthy then nothing else matters
Parents always say that they want her kids to be happy and healthy and ET Online mentions that this is also a belief for Kunis about her children. Though you might think this is just a saying, once you become a parent you truly will believe this saying for your kids as well.
This is because life is crazy and there is a lot of unknown things about what your children will be like as they grow and develop, but if they are happy and not hurting themselves or others then your child is on the right path for a great life.
7. Remember what’s important
With the creation of social media and people sharing every detail of their lives it can be hard for parents not to compare themselves to others. It’s just because when you are sitting at home playing with your child you can see how twenty other parents are spending their day with their little one and they should have thought of that instead.
6. Don’t overthink things
As a parent, your brain is going to start working in overdrive as you try to do everything in your life and According to ET Online, Kunis has stated that being a parent it can be easy for her to overthink things such as if she overreacted towards her children or should have done something different for them.
But she goes on to say that parents can’t keep doing this to themselves since it is going to drive them crazy. Take this page out of Kunis’ parenting book and don’t let things you did for your child throughout the day bog down your mind.

4. Her kids come first
When you work and have kids life can feel a little hectic with you not knowing how to balance it all. Kunis has mentioned to Uk’s Baby Magazine that her kids will always come first.

Some celebrities are known for spoiling their children like buying houses for eight-year-old and gifting giant unnecessary toys that no one really needs. But Kunis is not about that trend in celebrity parenting. The Kyle and Jackie O Show states that Kunis is not going to be spoiling her children as they are going up, and yes this even includes that holidays.
We applaud this style of parenting and we think this will help Kunis and Kutcher raise well-rounded children. We hope that other parents, not just celebrities, will take this rule when raising their little ones.
1. Don’t let outside opinions affect your parenting
An awful trend that is happening nowadays with parents and other parents is judging how someone is raising their child. According to Vanity Fair people criticized Kunis for breastfeeding her child when they were in public. Kunis has stated that she is not going to let others dictate how she should be parenting her children and this is how you should feel too.
Others are going to have something to say no matter how you are parenting it that can make you feel insecure if you let how others think of you. Just remember that you are your child’s parent and you will always know what is best.
