Gwen Stefani Worries About Her Parenting SkillsSassy Smith
No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani might have total confidence when she’s on stage singing for a crowd, but when it comes to motherhood, like a lot of moms, she sometimes worries about her parenting skills when it comes to sons Kingston, 3, and Zuma, 1.
Gwen looks to her parents, who were very strict with her, for guidance.
Stefani said, “I was thinking today when I was driving, ‘How am I going to make sure that Kingston never does anything bad and doesn’t get arrested?’ I was thinking, ‘How did I stay out of trouble?’ And I know it’s just because my parents were so strict. I mean, I’m still scared of them!”
She continued, “I grew up in a normal family. The other evening, at the end of the night, I was there with Kingston putting him to bed, reading all his books, getting his diaper on and putting him in his crib. Then I got Zuma, nursed him, put him to sleep. Then I went to a Hollywood party! It is extremely different from how my parents raised me.
Gwen added, “I’ve always worked really hard, and the hardest thing I’ve ever done is have kids! Everything from getting up in the morning, to trying to be consistent, to trying to have the right feelings. But, of course, the rewards are great.”
She’s such a cool mommy!
