Sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll are the name of the game for pop stars like Madonna, but when it comes to her own kids, the Material Girl is just a mom trying to dole out some sage — but honest — advice.
During a taping of The Jonathan Ross Show following the Brit Awards last week, the 56-year-old mom of four — Lourdes, 18; Rocco, 14; David, 9; and Mercy, 9 — revealed that
"I am not a big fan of drugs. They just don't suit me. The handful of times I have tried drugs, many, many, many, many years ago, I just didn't enjoy it. I wanted it out of me. I started guzzling bottles of water thinking that was going to end it. . . . I just ask my daughter [Lourdes] to make wise decisions and to do things in moderation and to try not to mix her alcohol. I am not going to say, 'No, don't do it,' because that is just absurd. And it is not fair. Yeah, I did it."
It's an attitude that many parents take with their kids — "if I did it, how can I tell my kids they can't?"
So tell us: do you echo Madonna's parenting advice?
