Kate Hudson is making sure she raises her kids to be as grounded as possible.

The 41-year-old actress said it's important her children learn the difference between what they're "entitled" to and what are "privileges".

"The only things you're entitled to are a roof over your head, food and my love," the mother-of-three said in an interview with Health magazine.

"Everything else is a privilege," she added. "And I'll take it away in a heartbeat if you're not respecting our home's moral compass."

Hudson appeared in the interview with her brother Oliver, who said although him and his sister do have similar parenting styles, she tends to be a bit stricter.

"I'm very liberal in letting my kids watch whatever movies, and I curse in front of my kids," the father to seven-year-old daughter Rio Laura, Bodhi Hawn, 10, and Wilder Brooks, 13.

 "If I curse in front of her kids, it's, 'Oliver!'" he joked.

The siblings, who co-host the podcast Sibling Revelry together, said they're lucky that their parents Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell never told them how to live their lives, saying they allowed them to 'go own their own path' and 'allowed them to make mistakes'.

"They clearly did something right," Kate said. "because there's no one I'd rather spend time with than them."
