Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard’s Daughters Have a Swimming Pool Instead of Phones: ‘No One Gets Everything’

There’s no denying that celebrity kids have it good. (Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s 10-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, for example, is incredibly rich.) But that doesn’t mean they are always spoiled. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard want to teach their daughters Lincoln, 9, and Delta, 7, a valuable lesson about gratitude for what they do have instead of focusing on what they don’t have: namely, cell phones.

“We don’t have a phone problem ’cause they’re not in the mix. And iPods aren’t, iPads aren’t in the mix and video games,” Shepard said on The Endless Honeymoon podcast, per PEOPLE. “So, there’s three things in my house that are not happening — those things. “

Lincoln and Delta are not too pleased about this rule.

“They complain about it all the time,” the Armchair Expert podcast host continued. “’So-and-so’s got it.’ And I go, ‘Yeah, but you got a swimming pool and you got a dirt bike.’”

He added that he and Bell want their daughters to experience the world firsthand. “I don’t want your focus to be on a seven-inch thing when the world is all around you,” he said.

But Shepard isn’t as strict about the rule when they are at other people’s houses. “[L]ook, you get to play with it at your friend’s house. I’m not saying you can’t play video games when you go out and about in the world. You do whatever you want to do, but doesn’t happen here. We have a bunch of other s–t that your friends are jealous of, so it’s like ‘no one gets everything’ and that.”
