Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have shared a few insights into the way they parent their children.

Ashton and Mila have firmly kept their kids out of the spotlight but they have shared some information about how they live. For example, the couple once revealed that they don't give their kids Christmas presents because the mom said it was just "too much" stuff.

No inheritance

Many parents work hard, not only for themselves but to ensure their children will be well taken care of even after they're gone. But this isn't the plan for Ashton and Mila.

In 2018, the dad revealed. during an episode of Dax Shepard's podcast, that he and his wife don't plan on leaving any money for their children. In their opinion, their kids should figure out and navigate their own careers just like the parents did.

My kids are living a really privileged life, and they don’t even know it. And they’ll never know it because this is the only one that they’ll know. I’m not setting up a trust for them. We’ll end up giving our money away to charity and to various things.

Ashton doesn't plan to leave his children high and dry, however. He added that he's willing to invest in any business plan or venture they might have as long as the ideas are feasible and reasonable.

I want them to be really resourceful. Hopefully, they'll be motivated to have what they had, or some version of what they had.

Mixed reactions

Not everyone was on board with the celebrity parents' idea. Some felt like there was nothing wrong with leaving something behind for their children to provide security.

On the other hand, some internet users believe that Ashton and Mila are on the right track and will end up teaching their kids the best lessons this way.

When it comes to matters of parenting, everyone will do it their way. Regardless of other people's disapproval, these celebrity parents obviously have their own reasons for doing what they do. And in the end, all that matters is that the kids are loved and supported.
