Natalie Portman isn’t one of those moms who wants to get on her soapbox to lecture about her way of mothering being the “good way”. Natalie says that since she became a mom to son Aleph, she is less judgmental than she was previously.
She explains, “I’m less judgmental than before I had a kid. The biggest thing I’ve learned is that parenting is a totally different experience for every person. Everything is cool, there are no rules — I mean, apart from not hurting your kid. Some people breastfeed until their babies are 5, and some don’t breastfeed at all. There are no rules about what it means to be a feminist, or a good mother. For some, it’s going to be right to go back to work. For others, it’s going to be right to stop working completely.”
Natalie is thankful for her own childhood, crediting her mom and dad for great parenting. The “Thor: The Dark World” actress shared “They were completely present, completely loving, they allowed me to do what I was passionate about, and I understand now how much they protected me. I was lucky to act and have a regular household, lifestyle and friends.”
