9+ Strict Rules Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard Make Their Kids Follow

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are already #couplegoals, but once they became parents to their adorable daughters, Lincoln and Delta, they also became #parentgoals.

That's because this famous duo has so many clever parenting hacks that make lives so much easier.

Their tantrums won't get a response from mom and dad.

The Bad Moms actress told Us Weekly: "One thing I’ve learned as a mom is it’s really important to monitor when they are able to receive your information.

“We wait until they calm down and then we talk to them.”

Basically, they don't negotiate with terrorists children.

Everyone in their household must treat each other with respect.

These famous parents focus a ton on teaching their kids the basics of R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

"We have very strict rules in our family about how we treat people with respect, especially our family members."

"We are going to be with each other in the long haul, so it’s important to always be respectful and treat your sister the way you want to be treated," Bell said.

They celebrate birthdays only when mom and dad are free.

As working actors, Dax and Kristen's busy schedules make them miss actual birthdays sometimes.

To fix this, they came up with a unique solution.

And it's something all working parents might want to steal! So long as the kids are young and clueless.

"If it’s, like, a Wednesday and we can’t celebrate and we’re both working late, then — guess what — your birthday is on a Saturday."

“They don’t know," she said during an appearance on the Today show.

They can touch things, but only with one finger.

This is a brilliant parenting hack a lot of people might want to grab.

While speaking to "People", Kristen explained it as this:

"So if she wants to touch a vase that I know she shouldn’t, I say, ‘Oh, I want to touch it too. Let’s use one finger!’" she said.

Kristen and Dax have found it to be so effective.

The reason why? “It makes them feel like they have a little bit of a choice."

They have to open up about their day.

These parents won't accept one-word answers from their kids when asked about their day.

Instead, they will explain to their kids why it's important that they open up.

"They understand that it's not just an obligatory, annoying question, that there's meaning behind it," she told PopSugar.

"My kids don't brush me off. They say, 'It was really good, how was your day?'" she said. "They actually ask me how my day was."

So brilliant!

They must brush their teeth before their parents.

This is another hack that Dax and Kristen use. They have found that it helps their kids feel in control and even save them time in the morning.

She'll tell them: "'You go first. You tell me when it’s my turn.' And they brush their teeth or really just eat the toothpaste, and then they give the toothbrush to me, and I really get the job done."

This helps speed things along in the morning instead of giving the kids all the reigns on time.

They have to go straight to sleep or else they'll get locked inside their bedrooms at night.

This bedtime hack is really controversial.

"My 3-year-old decided to stop sleeping about nine months ago," Bell said.

"And every night, when we put her to bed, she turns the lights on, which annoys the 4-year-old, and she will move furniture, and she bangs on the door with different, hard toys.

"We switched the doorknob. We turned the lock on the outside."

Controversial or brilliant?

Mommy and daddy can swear, but they can't.

"We don't limit ourselves as much as we should at home," she shared to E!

"The way we explain it is, 'Look, you're 5 years old. You can't drive my car. You can't vote. You can't drink alcohol. You can't swear,'" said Bell.

They aren't allowed to believe in Santa Claus.

From a young age, Dax and Kristen broke the news to their kids that Santa Claus isn't real.

"This is going to be very controversial," Dax told "Us Weekly".

"I have a fundamental rule that I will never lie to them, which is challenging at times. Our 5-year-old started asking questions like, 'Well, this doesn't make sense, and that doesn't make sense," he said).

"I'm like, 'You know what? This is just a fun thing we pretend while it's Christmas.'"

They can't watch TV or movies.

You won't catch these kids watching Frozen anytime soon.

"The APA recommends that you let kids watch TV when they're 2 and a half, so we’re trying to follow that, which unfortunately is not realistic for all parents," Bell told Us Weekly.

"I understand, we’re shooting for the moon. [It's also for] their imagination, just so they don’t become sedentary and used to zoning out to videos."

"But she's certainly seen videos, she loves the hell out of Snoopy! But we're trying. She certainly hasn’t seen anything Frozen."
