Celebrity Parenting: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

Celebrities are often known for adopting eccentric lifestyles, and their parenting choices are no exception.

Kate Hudson: The Working Mom

Kate Hudson: The Working Mom

Kate Hudson, Goldie Hawn’s daughter, wrote a long essay on parenting for InStyle titled “Sometimes I Feel Like a Bad Mom.” Hudson, who she has two sons with two different fathers, seems to take a more hands-off approach. She mentions how important it is to her to continue pursuing her own creative endeavors, which means time away from her kids.

“Even though every primal ounce of the nurturing, domestic woman in me gets pulled, I’m a hunter as well. And I love to hunt,” she writes. “And as a woman I feel that somehow we are supposed to feel apologetic about wanting both. But I don’t want to apologize for that anymore.” She also admits to occasionally hiding from her kids.

Kate’s Hide and Go Seek


In her essay, Hudson mentions that she finds herself at times hiding from her children in her own home. “Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children,” she writes.

Kate is also quoted as saying that she does not like to do their homework and that she would rather be watching The Bachelor instead of division or fractions. Who can relate?
