Mayim Bialik believes that children should learn politeness at their own pace and in their own way because they know what works best for them. "I don't tell them to say 'please' or 'thank you,'" she clarified.

Will Smith allows his children to express themselves freely and accepts them for who they are. His reaction, for example, to his son's interest in women's clothing was more than balanced. Smith emphasizes that the most common mistake parents make is trying to fit their child into a mold.
“I feel like a lot of times, when I was growing up, I would see parents force a child to be what you want them to be," he says. “As a parent, if it’s an oak tree, I want it to grow as an oak tree. I’m not going to try to force it to be an apple tree.”
