Denise Richards on Co-Parenting With Charlie Sheen

When your ex is Charlie Sheen, you're going to seem like the stricter parent to the world, no matter what you do. But Denise Richards says she's trying her best to be as non-judgmental as possible with her three daughters — even when she's not on the same page with them.

How to Watch

“I think that my daughters will tell you that I’m a strict parent,” The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom told PEOPLE. “I definitely have rules and boundaries and there’s consequences.”

And they're definitely not doing whatever they want, she explained.

Her parents raised her not to judge others and that everyone is equal: “That’s something that’s really stuck with me and something that I really want to instill in my daughters." That starts with trying not to judge her children even when they might do something she "may not agree with" as they become young adults.

She's remained firm in her parenting even when battling guilt over missing certain milestones because of work. Though she's admitted she is kind of over talking about her co-parenting with a notorious Hollywood bad boy like Sheen, she has revealed that they're in a decent place at the moment and are just working on being consistent with their rules. She also said that Sheen is stricter than you might think. But when it comes to being a disciplinarian, she learned from her parents.

"It’s very, very different," she shared in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills After Show. "When I was growing up, my father worked for the f--king phone company so he would tap the line so he would know when we were lying. They would let us sneak out and they would show the f--k up at the party and I’d be like, 'How did my parents know?' But they let us go to catch us."
