Our mom would be so happy to see my sister & I together celebrating the holiday season with our families. 12 years ago today she passed away & not a day goes by that we don’t think about her. Thanksgiving was her favorite holiday. I’m so grateful for my family & to have these moments with eachother & a fun moment for us seeing how they get their Christmas tree in Montana 🎄
THE DOTING YET STRICT RICHARDS
The mother of three mentioned that her daughters would attest to her "strict" parenting. She added that there were clear boundaries, and disregarding them would have consequences.
She also revealed that she doesn't let her daughters "do whatever they want." The actress told the outlet that she tried to follow the values her parents instilled in her and her sister.
Although she is doing everything a good parent would do for their children, she can't help but feel that her kids have been through more than enough in their lives.
RICHARDS CONCERNED ABOUT HER PARENTING
Previously, Richards opened up about her marriage with the "Two and a Half Men" alum, Charlie Sheen. She talked to "US Magazine," and mentioned that she "[explitive] up with him."
"I don't want them to look back at their childhood and remember [arguments]. My girls have been through a lot. How I chose to relate to the dysfunction that was going on with their father was to hide it from the kids."
The star talked about how her daughters were growing up to be adults, and she felt as though she could have done more for them. The actress also expressed that it got hard sometimes when Sheen spoiled their daughters.
CO-PARENTING WITH SHEEN
The RHOBH star revealed on the show that she wouldn't allow her daughters to date until they are 16. Sheen, however, had a different take on the issue.
He told his ex-wife that he would trust his daughter's judgment when a boy asked her for a dance. Richards also mentioned that raising teenagers was hard, especially in Los Angeles.
The doting mother is not letting her children grow up without proper supervision and care. Previously, she was granted custody of Sheen's twins with Brooke Mueller after she was admitted for treatment for drug problems.
