The actress and founder of The Honest Company revealed that she and her daughter go to therapy together to work through communication barriers, reports People.

In a frank conversation on Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt’s Instagram series about parenting, “Before, During & After Baby,” the 40-year old shared that she thinks that the modern form of parenting allows children “to be seen and heard as individuals, basically as soon as they start having any kind of consciousness or thoughts or opinions.”

Alba continued, noting that “it starts early. I take the approach of making sure that they understand boundaries and respect, but trying to see them each individually and meet them where they are.”
