Jada Pinkett Smith, 37, acknowledges that neither she nor Will are particularly strict with their three children, Trey, 15, Jaden, 10, and Willow, 7.
“We’re not strict but we definitely believe it’s a very important component for rearing children,” she told People magazine last month. “It creates safety for them. They understand that they need guidance.”
Still, if a member of their family wants to sneak an extra sweet, Jada acknowledges with a laugh that her husband is the more lenient one.
“He’s so lenient on that stuff,” she said with a sigh. “Daddy tends to [say], ‘Yeah! Have chocolate cake for dinner! It’s all right with me.’ I’ll come home and it’s just, ‘Has anyone had lunch?’ ‘Yeah, I had some Frosted Flakes!’ ”
