Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have been together for 11 years now, so of course they get into the occasional argument. And because the couple now has two young daughters, sometimes those fights happen in front of the kids. Hey, it happens to the best of us!
But the Bell-Shepard household has a simple rule when it comes to arguing in front of the little ones, and they use arguments to teach their daughters Lincoln, 5, and Delta, 4, an important life lesson.
“One thing my husband invented — he said, ‘Let’s make a commitment to always make up in front of our kids,'” Kristen recently told PopSugar.
Every time Kristen and Dax fight in front of the kids, they also make sure to resolve the fight in front of them. That way, their daughters don’t just learn to fight, but they also learn how to resolve conflict in a healthy way.
“I let them witness apologies a lot,” Kristen explained. “Don’t be scared of apologies!”
It’s a simple rule that makes a big difference, according to The Good Place actress.
