Jessica Alba: Parenting magazine, April 2012

Such a lovely montage of beautiful pics featuring Jessica Alba's two daughters, Honor Marie and Haven Garner grace the latest issue of US Parenting magazine.

So very cute!

She says of her parenting style: "“I’m the disciplinarian. I think it’s because I was kind of a naughty kid myself: I’d push my parents’ buttons and test them to see how much I could get away with. Cash, meanwhile, was always the perfect kid – the straight-A student who was everyone’s sweetheart. It was never in him to be naughty,” she says.

She adds: “I think I just know, from me being that other kind of child, how to cut off bad behavior and redirect it. So when Honor tries to do something she shouldn’t, I have to say to Cash, ‘Let her know right from the beginning that she can’t.’ I’ll put her in time-out and tell her, ‘Think about the choices you’ve made.’ Then I’ll come back and say, ‘Now its time to stop crying and think.’ Then I’ll come back again and ask her, ‘Now, what did you learn?’”

Alba also talks about her new company, called The Honest Company.
