How do you keep a privileged child down to earth? Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have found the solution: plug the chimney hole so that Santa Claus cannot pass through it. In a 2017 interview with Entertainment Tonight, when her children Wyatt Isabelle and Dimitri Portwood were 3 and 1 years old, Mila Kunis made some surprising revelations about the educational methods employed by her and her husband, Ashton Kutcher. She explained that in order to anchor her children in reality and make them understand the value of things, the couple chose not to give them presents on Christmas.
“Our tradition is not to give gifts to children,” she told ET columns, before explaining how she and Ashton Kutcher came to make this decision. “Last year, when we celebrated Christmas, Wyatt was two years old and it was really too much. We didn’t give him anything, everything came from his grandparents. The little one doesn’t appreciate his presents anymore. They don’t know. even more what they want, they just know they’re going to have stuff. We said to our parents, ‘Please, if you have to give her something, just give her one gift. , we’ll give it to a charity, or to a children’s hospital. ‘ It’s our new tradition. “

No worries, Mila Kunis stressed that this tradition would last only a few years, the time that their children can integrate certain values. Born on October 1, 2014 and June 15, 2016, Wyatt and Dimitri Kutcher are now 6 and 4 years old respectively. Their parents, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, met in 1998 on the set of That 70s Show.
