Kate Hudson hopes to bring up her two sons in the same way she was raised - with a relaxed sense of discipline.
The 32-year-old - mum to baby Bingham, with fiancee Matt Bellamy, and Ryder, seven, from her previous marriage - was brought up by her actress mother Goldie Hawn and step-father Kurt Russell.
Kate told Elle magazine: "My parents allowed my brother and I to have our freedom.
"[We could] be ourselves and feel confident in our choices and make mistakes without too much judgement.
"I hope that I can do as good a job.
"We've definitely had lots of talks about parenting and being a working mum."
She added: "[My mum] never hands out unsolicited preachy words of wisdom."
Kate and Matt, who met at last year's Coachella festival, are engaged but in no hurry to tie the knot.
"One thing at a time," said the Almost Famous star.
"We'll say hello to our new one and enjoy that for a while."
