Model Kate Moss found a great way to get her teenage daughter to behave: blackmail. Truth is, while it’s not recommended, we can say, from personal experience, that the method is quite effective.
Moss has kept most of the fabulous, expensive clothes she has gotten from designers over the years and has promised to give them to her daughter, in one condition, she has to do what her mother tells her to do. Genius!
No Microwaves Allowed
The Kardashians have managed to reach a cultural status that makes us all want to know everything about them, from their beauty routines to how they raise their children. Kourtney has recently said that when it comes to her babies, she prefers not to microwaves any of their food.
She has read that using this heating device can lead to negative health effects. While scientists say there's no problem with using it as long as you do so correctly, Kourtney favors being safe rather than sorry.

Kristen Bell found that honesty CAN be the best policy when it comes to talking to your kids about the birds and the bees.
After one of her daughters asked her where babies come from, Kristen set her at the kitchen table and started telling her about the whole thing, in detail. Bell didn't even get to finish her first sentence about the topic, her kid lost interest and went to play outside.

Known as the original Queen of Pop, Madonna has mothered over fourteen studio albums, seven Grammys, and six children. Juggling it all sounds like one hell of a hustle if you ask us, but if anyone could handle it, it'd be Madonna.
The material girl's parenting style isn't exactly nurturing as she doesn't allow sweets of any kind, or any TV whatsoever. Though the two can definitely poison young children's minds and bodies, it seems the limitation has led to a shaky connection with some of her children.
