Do you use time outs with your kids, well, then you and Jessica Alba have something in common! She uses them when her 2-year-old daughter, Honor, misbehaves.

Jessica Alba doesn’t let her daughter Honor push her around, and she isn’t shy about letting people know that. While appearing on Late Show with David Letterman on Aug. 30 to promote her new movie, Machete, Jessica admitted she is a tough disciplinarian with her 2-year-old.

“I’m very strict with her,” Jessica, 29, told Dave. “When it’s time for her to eat, whether she’s hollering or whatever, it’s time to eat. She gets a time out if she cries for no reason. I’ll ask her what she’s doing and she’ll say, ‘Crying for no reason.’

In fact, Jessica has her daughter so well schooled that the toddler disciplines herself when she knows she’s been naughty. “Sometimes she asks me to go to time out,” Jessica admits. “If she does something bad she’ll say, ‘Honor time out?’ and I’ll say, ‘Yeah, you’re getting a time out.’ ”

After listening, Dave said, “I think you’re doing a better job raising your daughter than I am raising my son.”

His opinion changed, though, when Jessica admitted that she used to “overfeed” her daughter when she was six months old to get her to sleep more. See more of Jessica’s interview, including how Honor asks her mom for a cup of coffee in the morning, below.
