Bindy isn't the only one telling girls how to behave

JESSICA Alba is a strict mother.

The 'Sin City' star thinks it's important her daughters Honor, six, and Haven, three, whom she has with her husband Cash Warren, know the importance of acting like ladies in public.

She said: "I talk about what's appropriate and what's now. Like, if you're going to wear a skirt - even with bloomers - you've got to sit like a lady, you know?"

The 33-year-old actress is also determined her children grow up feeling confident about themselves and doesn't want them to feel under pressure to look a certain way from society.

She told Us Weekly magazine: "My mother is a confident woman. The emphasis was always about inner beauty when I was growing up. I tell my girls how beautiful they are and just how much I love them. They have phenomenal tummies. I squeeze and kiss them all the time."

Meanwhile, the blonde beauty, who has her own eco-friendly brand The Honest Company, admits she hates being away from her girls when she's got work commitments.

She previously: "It sucks. I want to just be home. I just try to do the best I can and try to surround them with love and support when I can't be there. It's tough because you obviously want to be home with them, but it's also important that we're here at the company."
