We’ve picked up some A-List parenting skills from our favorite stars.

The Smiths: Support

We love the way The Smiths encourage their kids to explore what it means to be themselves.

The Simmons: Traditional Family Values

We never get tired of hearing Run’s words of wisdom which helped shape his kids into successes.

And now that Sunday Suppers is debuting in June, we can’t wait to watch the Simmons bring some old school parenting skills back to TV.

The Obamas: Parental Creativity

When President Obama kept his daughters from getting a tattoo by threatening to get one too, it was just another one of the creative parenting techniques that makes the first couple one of our favorite parenting models.

The Carters: The Parenting Bond

Beyonce and Jay-Z prove that sometimes good parenting isn’t always about the kids. We love how Blue Ivy seemed to bring these two closer. Just because you’re parents doesn’t mean the spice has to leave the marriage.

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren: Health First

Good health is an important part of parenting. And few parents are as dedicated as Jessica and Cash to making sure their kids lead green lives. Jessica even started The Honesty Company: a brand that provides natural diapers and other baby products to help kids get a healthy start in life.

The Harrises: Love and Laughter

T.I. and Tiny Harris prove that one of the best gifts you can give your kids is a home full of laughter.

The Asomughas: Work Ethic

OK, so Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha are brand new to parenting. But we love the way Kerry worked almost up until her due date. There’s no reason why working parents can’t do it all.

The Tuckers: Blending Instructions

In a world of blended families, Kandi and Todd set a great example by making sure that both of their daughters were featured front and center in the new family’s nuptials.

The Cannons: Parenting and Play

The Cannons look like they have so much fun we want to hang. With a diva for a mother and a big kid for a dad, the twins are busy building memories that will last a lifetime.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: Making It Work

Angelina and Brad go the extra mile to make sure their mixed brood of six gets all of the attention they need. The two alternate film projects so that one parent is always there with the kids.

The Parks-Nidas: The Importance of Self-Esteem

Ayden and “Mr. President” Dylan may grow up to have 99 problems, but self-esteem won’t be one. We love the way Phaedra and Apollo raise their sons to know their worth and celebrate the finer things in life.

Cynthia Bailey and Leon Robinson: Co-Parenting Tips

These two are some of our favorite examples of co-parenting. Leon goes out of his way to be copacetic and get to know Noelle’s step dad and make sure he’s still a part of her family life.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale: Prioritizing Play Time

The family that plays together stays together. And the paparazzi’s photo books are full of pictures of this close-knit family putting in the quality time that builds strong families.

The Johnsons: Acceptance Above All

Real families love each other no matter what. And Cookie and Magic Johnson made themselves our favorite parental example of unconditional love when they came out in support of their son EJ.

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves: Shaping Experiences

We love the way Matthew and Camila prioritize new experiences and laid back living to broaden their children’s horizons. An open mind is one of the most useful tools you can give kids as they grow up to explore the world.
