Alicia Silverstone is sharing some insight into how she raises her 11-year-previous son, Bear.
During a chat on “The Ellen Fisher Podcast,” the 45-12 months-old actor exposed that she and her son continue to share a mattress. Right after speaking extensively about Silverstone’s veganism, Fisher brought up the “Clueless” star’s “alternative” parenting methods and co-sleeping.
“Bear and I nevertheless rest jointly,” Silverstone claimed in the episode shared on Tuesday, ahead of including, “I’ll be in problems for declaring that, but I genuinely don’t treatment.”
She prefaced her responses on increasing her son by expressing that she is “a normal mama.”
“And I’m a loving mama,” she ongoing. “And I believe that in adore and I believe that in mother nature, and our modern society is fearful of mother nature and afraid of love.”
The actor, who shares Bear with ex-husband Christopher Jarecki, explained her parenting design and style and co-sleeping as “following character.”
“If you ended up in any type of wild environment in which there are animals, if you set your newborn above there,” Silverstone claimed and pointed across the home, “your infant is likely to get eaten. It’s not best for the little one to be above there.”
This isn’t the first time Silverstone talked about co-sleeping with her son. In her 2014 book “The Variety Mama,” she wrote that inserting a little one in a crib is “tantamount to child neglect.” In 2020, she instructed Nowadays Moms and dads that she and a then 9-12 months-aged Bear continue to shared a bed.
“The regard we have for every single other is just outstanding,” she gushed. “We’ll wake up and snuggle for two or a few several hours laughing and speaking. Then we’ll go make pancakes.”
In the meantime, in her ongoing discussion with Fisher, the “Senior Year” actor went on to get in touch with motherhood “the most precious” and “unbelievable encounter.”
“I wished to have more (children), but then my romance acquired messed up, and it was not a good time to provide one particular in. I did not want to have one right absent simply because I was so in like with my Bear,” she mirrored. “I desired to … squeeze each little second out of him, so it wasn’t until finally he was like 3 that I was ready to make a further infant and then I didn’t have a lover, so which is why I really don’t have four babies.”
Silverstone’s parenting model has created headlines before. Again in 2012, she discovered that she chews her son’s foods for him.
At the time, she introduced a video clip exhibiting how she fed a then-11-month-aged Bear.
“I fed Bear the mochi and a little bit of veggies from the soup from my mouth to his. It is his favorite…and mine,” she wrote on her blog site. “He practically crawls across the home to assault my mouth if I’m eating. This movie was taken about a month or 2 back when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the foodstuff!”
