Sheryl Crow is a strict mom and proud of it. The 49-year-old singer learned about the importance of discipline from her own mother.
“My mom said it’s going to hurt you a lot more than it’s going to hurt them,” Sheryl explained during the Tom’s of Maine Simply White web chat.
“So when I would get upset about putting him in a time out or being stern with him as Wyatt was going through the terrible 2s and challenging 3s, she would say, ‘Those things are not going to be memorable for him. What’s memorable for him is gonna be the feeling of safety.’”
Sheryl does whatever she has to do when it comes to parenting sons Wyatt, 4, and Levi, 1. Even is that means bribing her kids to eat right.
“I’m all about bribery when it comes to my little kids eating, particularly my 4-year-old” she admitted. “‘If you’ll try this, Wyatt, you can have some of this.’ That’s how we do it.”
Hey, whatever gets the job done!
