Having grown up as the child in the Hollywood spotlight, Nicole Richie knows a bit about what her children with rocker husband Joel Madden go through.
The mother of Harlow and Sparrow, who was adopted by Lionel Richie and wife Brenda just before the singer’s affair came to light, now puts stability as her number one priority.
“One of the biggest differences in the way I’m raising my kids versus the way I was raised is that I was on tour a lot. I don’t really do that with my kids,” Nicole Richie explained to DuJour magazine. “It’s important to me that they have stability. I like them to be home.”
Recalling her days on the road with Lionel Richie, the 30 year old continued, “I was taken out of school and had tutors. By the time my father went onstage, I was asleep.”
Although she’s choosing a different approach now as a parent, Nicole Richie understands every tries to do what they think is best at the time. She continued, “There’s no right or wrong way to raise a family. Look, I don’t know anyone who can say they don’t just try and do the best that they can do.”
