Jessica Alba's strict parenting
Feb 24, 2012, 16:02 GMT
Jessica Alba is a much stricter parent than her own mother and father.
The 30-year-old actress - who has two daughters, Honor, three, and six-month-old Haven, with husband Cash Warren - admits she is harder on her kids than her 'cool and laid back' mum Catherine and dad Mark Alba were for her.
She said: 'I did have that dreaded moment when my daughter decided that every answer I gave her wasn't a good one and she kept saying, 'But why mommy? But why mommy?', and I was like, 'Because I said so'. And I thought, 'Oh God, I'm that mum, I'm my mum'.
'My parents did use 'because I said so' and they were not strict. They were fun and cool and laid back and a way better time than me.'
Jessica admits she was such a 'super bad' child she once took her dad's car and drove to a fast food restaurant at the age of 14.
Speaking on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', she added: 'I got good grades and I was going to Bible study all the time.
'I wasn't bad. But I rebelled, I guess. Like one time when I was fourteen or thirteen or something, I took my dad's Ford Probe to Jack in the Box. I took side streets. It was a car full of girls. We were bumping Sublime. I was a super bad kid.'
