Married to Medicine’s Phaedra Parks is all about the glitz and glam, reiki, running her multiple businesses, and playing peacemaker amongst the ladies. And on top of all of that, she's raising two sons!

How to Watch

Watch Married to Medicine now streaming on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Parks opened up about her parenting styles with her sons Ayden and Dylan she shares with her ex-husband, Apollo Nida. 

What are Phaedra Parks' rules for her kids?

Phaedra says she has three major rules for her two boys to follow. "I have three rules for my sons. Be respectful of adults, ‘yes and no ma’am’ all the time. My second rule is clean up behind yourself. And the last thing is be grateful," Phaedra revealed to PEOPLE

What happens if Phaedra’s sons break the rules?

She may adore her boys, but as any Married to Med fan knows, Phaedra is no a pushover, especially when it comes to her sons not picking up after themselves.

“I definitely will take their phone away and follow through with that because I worked too hard for them not to appreciate. Of course, we have a housekeeper," she explained, "but I want them to know!"

She also added they do have an appreciation for creativity and that, at the end of the day, they always pull through. “They have great manners. I’m proud to call them mine," she said.

Phaedra is teaching her sons to invest

For Ayden’s 13th birthday last year, Phaedra shocked the world when she revealed that she gave Ayden over $100,000 to pursue his career as an entrepreneur, specifically in real estate.

"So, he said for his birthday he either wanted a dirt bike or a way to make money. And so, I said, 'Well definitely not gonna give you a dirt bike to kill yourself. I will give you $150,000 for you to buy a piece of property. And so now he's basically trying to figure out if he wants to do a little multi-unit duplex, you know, [start] his own little rental properties," she explained.

It sounds like Phaedra is raising her sons right.
