Nicole Richie on Parenting: 'Kids Want to Be Told the Truth'

Nicole Richie takes a bite out of her sunglasses while out and about on Saturday afternoon (July 26) in Studio City, Calif.

In a recent interview for Oprah: Where Are They Now?, the 32-year-old fashion designer talked about her parenting style.

“There’s always room for improvement,” Nicole said (via Huffington Post). “I do know that I do the best I can.”

“I have to always come from a place of love and compassion with them,” Nicole added. “My kids operate best when I let them have a voice and I really explain things to them. Because, really, kids want to be told the truth. They just want you to be truthful.”

Oprah: Where Are They Now airs Sundays at 9 pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

    Will she teach the kids to drive the freeway the wrong way?

  • Gina

    Is she honest with her kids about mommy being anorexic? Oh right, that would require her being honest with herself first.

  • Not

    @Gina: Agreed. Is she going to tell her kids that she pops Adderall and Amphetamines all day to stay skeletal?

  • Jules

    Yes, absolutely. It is not only about telling the truth to your kids but make them well mannered. Your character, life style and way of tackling things will reflect in the behavior of your child. So, need to be careful about it. For helping people, you can share your experience at Eumom.
