Celebs Attend The Peoples Choice Awards

Kristen Bell stopped by Chelsea Lately yesterday, and the ‘House of Lies’ actress shared a few of her plans on how she’s going to raise her 10-month-old daughter Lincoln (dad is Dax Shepard). Kristen admitted she doesn’t have any intention of shielding her daughter away from onscreen sex, because it’s a perfectly normal part of life.

“She can watch whatever she wants,” the Lifeguard actress told host Chelsea Handler. “People ask, ‘Oh, well you’ve done some sexy material. Do you not want her to see that?’ And I’m like, ‘My guess is if she’s anything like the other 5 billion people on the planet, she’s gonna grow up and enjoy sex, so I’m not gonna be shocked by that.’”

Bell said she’s has already accepted that Lincoln won’t stay young forever. “I just think you’re setting yourself up for disaster if you try to keep them little,” she explained. “She’s gonna grow up. She has — newsflash! — a vagina, and she’s gonna figure it out one day, and more power to her.”

Since giving birth to Lincoln, Bell has been outspoken about her journey into motherhood. In the December issue of Flare, she admitted that she didn’t bond with her daughter during her pregnancy.

“I kept saying to Dax in all sincerity during my pregnancy, ‘I just don’t know how I’m going to like her as much as I like the dogs.’ I was being serious,” she told the magazine. “Because I f–king love my dogs; they are my children.”

“I love people the more I know them, and I didn’t know her,” Bell went on to explain. “It could’ve been a water bottle in my belly, that’s about how connected I felt to her during my pregnancy. But within about 24 hours after she came out, my hormones reset, and they reprogrammed my feelings about her.”

I have to say – I don’t agree….and I’d be really surprised if she actually sticks to this. I think it’s our job as parents to censor what’s going into our kids heads. Sure a little PDA isn’t going to hurt them, but full-on-sex for a child to see is too much. I know a lot of people probably wouldn’t agree with me. I have two sons, 11 & 13, and raising them in the p0rn era. I choose to monitor my kids internet and wi-fi in an effort to keep them off porn. Some parents don’t think that’s smart, and you should give your kids free reign to do whatever they want, and help them make the right choices. Being a parent isn’t easy, and each of us do the best we can. To each their own, we’re all going to screw up one way or another.

Yikes! I hope she’s kidding.. I don’t have children and what scares me most is parents that don’t monitor what their children are watching or doing.. I guess I’m old fashioned.. I completely agree with u! I agree with u completely! This world is sick and children have no business looking at porn or any kind of sex..

Porn is one thing. Because it shows an inappropriate or disproportionate view on sex. But allowing them to see healthy and positive sexual situations Can definitely be a good thing. Your kids are going to find porn as you said it is the era of the Internet. So introduce them to things that will stimulate them in ways that aren’t so one sided. I alwas wonder about parenting controls. Because while want to protect your children from content and people on the Internet eventually one day they will be old enough to get on there without you and you want to make sure that they understand the decisions they make and the things they look at are their own.

LZ I agree – parenting is difficult. It’s hard to know where to draw the lines. You want to be protective, but not overly-protective. You don’t want to be naive, but also you don’t want to give them the world on a platter. Given the hormones of teenagers, giving them unfiltered access to whatever they want just isn’t smart.
