Jessica Alba goes to therapy with her 10-year-old daughter for THIS reason

Jessica Alba has opened up about why she decided to go to therapy with her eldest daughter. 

The 38-year-old is mum to three kids - 10-year-old Honor, seven-year-old Haven, and one-year-old Hayes.

Jessica revealed that by going to therapy with Honor, she hoped to, ''learn to be a better mother to her and communicate better with her.''

She continued, ''Some people think, like in my family, you talk to a priest and that’s it.''

She added, ''I don’t really feel comfortable talking to him about my feelings. I didn’t grow up in an environment where you talked about this stuff, and it was just like shut it down and keep it moving. So I find a lot of inspiration just in talking to my kids.”

Jessica, who has been married to husband Cash Warren for 11 years, has spoken about parenting before.

She told PEOPLE, ''Things aren’t gonna always come easy in life and anything that’s worth having, you have to work for.''

She continued, ''I wasn’t naturally really good at anything, so it always took a great deal of effort to accomplish anything for me. It’s just a good life lesson for my kids.''

We think it's fantastic that she has been so candid about doing this with her daughter and hope that it helps other parents communicate better with their little ones.
