Mila Kunis may be an actress, business owner and mother-of-two, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t human at the end of the day.
The “Bad Moms” actress is opening up about motherhood and her biggest FAIL, which really took her husband, Ashton Kutcher, by surprise.
During a visit to “The Ellen Show,” Mila played a little game called “Mom Confessions.”
She started out giving her number one warning for soon-to-be parents.
“Kids are like little terrorists. Don’t negotiate with them, it will go nowhere,” she sternly said.
One thing she has had to learn on the fly as a parent, don’t lie to your kids!
“Surprisingly you can’t lie to your kids, because there’s two of them,” she explained. “Those little white lies you want to tell one but not tell the other… instinctually teaches them it’s okay to lie, and so I’ve had to not do that which has oddly been very hard for me.”
Very sound advice, Mila.
Alright, then came time for the actress to admit her biggest parenting fail.
She explained the situation that led to said fail, “So, there was a little kid in my kid’s preschool that wasn’t very kind and pushed my daughter. My daughter came back and was like ‘such and such little kiddo pushed me,’ and I instinctually said, ‘Did you push her back?’”
Her daughter was shocked by her mom’s question and obviously replied, “No,” so Mila told her daughter that the next time something like that happens, she needs to push the other kid and say ‘No thank you.’
“I turn around and see Ashton’s face and he’s like ‘NOOOOOOO,’ but I was like, ‘You stand up for yourself and you say NO THANK YOU,’” she explained.
Family of four!
Now, before anyone gets up in arms, she did tell her daughter to make sure she wasn’t pushing anyone off a slide, ladder or swing.
“On the ground, even Steven, you push them back,” Mila adamantly said.
One thing Mila doesn’t see as parenting fail is how infrequent she bathes her kids.
But in true fashion, the joke turned into a major media storm with many people actually believing the couple doesn’t bathe their children often.
It was JUST A JOKE!
The Blast previously reported on how sick and tired she is of the discussion.
During her September appearance on “The Ellen Show,” Ellen mentioned that “a lot of people are talking” about the couple’s comments. Mila immediately let out a groan and said, “It’s so dumb.”
Visibly annoyed she followed up, “We bathe our dogs. Does that make people happy?”
