Nicole Richie Shares the Biggest Parenting Lesson She's Learned So Far

Nicole Richie wears an all-black outfit and Nike sneakers as she arrives for her morning workout on Thursday (August 11) in Studio City, Calif.

The 34-year-old fashion designer recently opened up about her children with Joel MaddenHarlow, 8, and Sparrow, 6 – and the most important lessons she has learned while raising them.

“They dress themselves,” Nicole told People, talking about how she lets her kids practice their independence. “Sparrow does his own thing. He likes to wear all black like his dad.”

“[Harlow] has her own style,” Nicole continued. “She likes to experiment with different looks. I am totally fine with that. What she looks like is ultimately up to her.”

Nicole revealed that the key is to not judge other moms for the way the raise their own kids.

“That’s something that’s always stuck with me because there’s not one way to raise children,” she added. “There’s no one right way to be a mother. It depends on your house and lifestyle. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is not to judge!”

    This is not surprising Sparrow digs black, and it’s most important in their teens to have a role model.
