Fashion designer and "Candidly Nicole" star Nicole Richie and her Good Charlotte rocker husband Joel Madden are parents to 6-year-old daughter Harlow and 4-year-old son Sparrow. In the above clip from "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" Richie tells Oprah about her parenting philosophy.
Richie says she is constantly talking with other moms and looking for new ways to develop a strong relationship with her kids. "There's always room for improvement," she says. "I do know that I do the best I can."
When talking to her children, Richie is all about honesty. "I have to always come from a place of love and compassion with them," she says. "My kids operate best when I let them have a voice and I really explain things to them. Because, really, kids want to be told the truth. They just want you to be truthful."
