Nicole Kidman Reveals The One Thing She Has Banned From The Family Home!

Australian actress Nicole Kidman may be a bonafide Hollywood star but when it comes to parenting she struggles just like the rest of us.

Kidman, who lives in Tennessee with husband Keith Urban and their two daughters Sunday, 10 and Faith, 7 says she’s made a conscious effort to try and limit the kid’s obsession with technology.

Limiting tech time is something all parents struggle to do and it seems to be an ongoing battle with every family. So exactly how do the Kidman-Urban’s handle the growing addiction our children seem to have with their gadgets?

Easy! The 51 year old actress has banned ALL handheld electronic devices from their family home. I’m guessing that includes ipads, phones and video games.

“We have a no-devices house. Their friends can’t bring devices over. The general rule is: play, hardcore and outside,” she said in an interview with The Guardian recently.

“We have periods at home where we don’t turn on the TV and try to have a detox from it all,” she continued.

Kidman goes on to say that the digital detox is something she would recommend all families do and says her two daughters are entertained with plenty of backyard ‘land and animals’.

The mum of two added that growing up in a Catholic family saw her attending church every week which she says remains a big part of her life to this day. “We go to Catholic church, or sometimes we will go to a gospel church for the music. That singing and joy is so wonderful,” she said.

Growing up her dad Antony declared he was an atheist but the actress says that didn’t deter her from believing n God. “He was a very gentle man, with a really strong social conscience. He told me he would still live by the Ten Commandments, but he was an atheist. And I said: ‘No, I want you to believe in God!’ It was difficult for a child. I still go church. I love the ritual. But that’s me and my choice,” Kidman says.

The tech free home sounds both amazing and stressful at the same time. Being free of all distractions would definitely help to bring the family together and create opportunities for play between siblings, but in all honesty isn’t it better that we teach our children self control and discipline with their gadgets rather than ban them completely? What do you think?
