Gwen Stefani's Husband Has Surprising View of Their Naughty Kids

Gwen Stefani Gavin RossdaleAlright Moms and Dads, tough question: would you call your kids naughty? To anyone other than your partner? Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale do!

In fact, in a rather refreshing interview, the Bush frontman did something a lot of parents are unwilling to do -- he was honest about his kids!

Said Rossdale of Kingston, 8, and Zuma, 5;

They're terrible! So naughty! But spirited is what I like to think of it as.

As for 3-month-old Apollo, Gwen Stefani's other half says:

We're very proud of him. He's a great kid [but] he'll be naughty soon enough.

Finally! Someone who is willing to admit their kids aren't perfect! Get this Dad a medal!

Before folks get up and arms and start attacking Gavin, it sounds like he was joking. Although, it sounds like one of those jokes you make that have a hint of truth to them.

And why not? He has an 8-year-old and 5-year-old. They're bound to be a little naughty if only because that's part of childhood. Kids test boundaries as they figure out what it is they can and can't do. Good parents recognize that naughtiness -- or spiritedness, or mischief, or whatever name you give it -- is normal. They discipline their kids to bring them back in line, but they don't go overboard.

Of course, being able to strike the right balance between your soft side and your discipline side takes being able to be honest about your kids and their behavior. It means being able to recognize that your child is -- at the end of the day -- no better (or worse!) than other kids. They all have a naughty devil inside of them.

It's OK to admit it!

Your turn: what is YOUR kid REALLY like?
