Is Megan Fox Right To Say She Won’t Discipline Her Children?

Megan Fox is on the cover of April’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and she has rarely looked more stunningly beautiful. According to the Daily Mail, Megan’s sultry beauty has often overshadowed her acting career and has lead to Fox being underestimated. Megan Fox certainly reveals in her interview that she feels misunderstood.

“I would say most people assume that I’m not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I’m sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me. It makes me laugh because I’ve done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from beginning to end you can see that I’m not your typical music video model.”

Megan Fox may have made a modelling and movie career out of her looks, but according to the Belfast Telegraph her priorities have changed in recent years. Since 2010, 28-year-old Megan has married Brian Austin Green and became a step-mom to 13-year-old Kassius. Megan and Brian now have two children of their own, 2-year-old Noah and 1-year-old Bodhi.

In her interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Megan Fox says that she takes a free-spirited approach to parenting. Megan says that she does not believe that she needs to act as an authority figure or to discipline her children.

“I don’t think I need to teach my children with harsh words or with punishment. I believe that if I love them the right way, there’s no need for that. I’m a free-spirit mother.”

“I don’t talk to Bodhi like he’s an adult, obviously, but I listen to everything he says to me and I believe in him, I believe that he sees things I don’t see, I believe he has things to teach me, and so I don’t act as a disciplinarian or an authority figure per se. I don’t ever want to be a restrictive force on him; I want to be an expansive force, I want him to be inspired by me because he constantly inspires me as well.”

Many people would disagree with Megan Fox over whether or not children need to be disciplined.

For example, Super-nanny Jo Frost says “Many parents don’t set, or don’t enforce, rules for their kids because they don’t want to be the villain but setting your child limits is vital for teaching them self-control. Few aspects of parenting are as important as discipline. The bottom line is that it helps your child feel secure and determines what kind of person they will grow up to be.”

Jo also points out that discipline should not be confused with punishment. What do Inquisitr readers think? Is Megan Fox right to claim that love alone will ensure children grow up as well rounded and balanced individuals. Alternatively, do you think that Megan Fox is wrong because children sometimes need to be disciplined?
