Princess Laurentien finds herself a strict mother. That's according to her crucial. "The rules and boundaries are clear with me and I am consistent."
So says the 50-year-old princess in the magazine Naar school
(= to school), where she is guest editor. "It still lies in love and trust, not perfection."
According Laurentien you have to show children by example. "Show that you have fun too in itself and also contribute. I want the kids help to set the table and clearing it for example, so I'll do it myself."
Laurentien has three children with husband prince Constantijn: Eloise (14), Claus-Casimir (12) and Leonore (10). Laurentien has the tasks in the household well distributed. "My husband can cook very well I never put effort into learning it right I am the organizer. Mommy controls it well, the children say, but the division of labor is very organic;.... We meet in the middle . "
Laurentien calls her husband "her anchor." "I think he will say the same about me. There is balance. We seem to be quite similar, but each in a different jacket," said Laurentien.
The theme of Naar school
is 'children to speak'. " "Children think pure and ask without judgment pointed questions. I also notice that as a mother. They are not the boss, but keep me focused and continue to surprise me."
"Children think positive and are cheerful. And that is exactly what we are all looking for, at home and at work," concludes the princess.
