Chrissy Teigen is teaching son to embrace his emotions. In her house, two-year-old Miles is learning to ” not to just ‘Be a Man’.
Teigen goes on to say in her cover article for the popular entertainment magazine that, “Miles is very emotional. He’s a lot like me too. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and we embrace that. I think more men should embrace their emotions. I think that’s really important in this world. That it’s okay to cry, and it’s okay to be upset about something or to be sad about something. We’re going to talk it through and it’s okay.”
“There is no ‘Be a man’ in our house,” she added. “There’s no right way to be a man, and John is so good about showing them through how he treats me how to be a good man, how to be a good father. It’s wonderful to see.”
Luna is just like her mom too.
“She is a bit of a perfectionist which I didn’t know I was until the past few years,” said Teigen in the interview. “I’m trying to tell her that not everything — it’s funny because when I talk to her, I’m actually talking to myself too — not everything has to be perfect and there is joy and beauty in imperfections, and don’t be so hard on yourself. And that’s me talking to myself when I tell her that stuff.”
In terms of her overall parenting style, Teigen feels like many parents do. Just let kids be kids, but be kind while doing it.
“I’m an open, free spirit and I love kids to be kids. For us, kindness is such a big thing. When you meet our kids, they’re very warm and friendly. You instill those things in them, but for the most part let them be creative and wondrous and spirited and curious beings.”
It looks like Chrissy has this parenting thing down! Luna and Miles are headed towards being amazing adults.
