10 Celebrities Who Won't Let Their Kids Watch Their Work

Being a parent in the digital era is tough. With nearly every form of technology available with the click of a button, seemingly every day it becomes easier and easier for children to access adult entertainment, whatever that may mean. It could be bad language, suggestive dialogue, or lots and lots of filthy, dirty sex, but point is, there’s plenty of entertainment out there not meant for children. It can be extremely difficult for a person tasked with protecting this child to protect them from all of the forms of popular entertainment out there, especially with media constantly being thrown in the child’s face. We can only imagine it gets made exponentially worse when the concerned parent stars in the very entertainment they try to keep their kids from watching.

Especially with the rise of gritty, action-packed cable TV, mainstream media isn’t always appropriate for children, and the people within the mainstream media know it. Well, at least some of them. No matter how much they love the film or TV show they made, endless celebrities have gone on record in interviews or talk show appearances as refusing to let their children watch their work. Things might change when the kids get older, but for now, these 10 celebrities' children have no idea why they’re famous—and if the celebs have anything to say about it, it’s going to stay that way.

6 Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Freeze Their Kids Viewing Habits

All of the stars on this list won’t let their kids watch their own films, but celebrity couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard go further with it, banning their children from watching any television at all. Granted, the kids are very young, born in early 2013 and late 2014. However, as Bell acknowledges, they are at the perfect ages to be absolutely obsessed with her starring role as Princess Anna in Frozen. Unfortunately for the two young girls, named Lincoln and Delta, Bell says the two have some time to wait before they get to watch that or any film, and likely don’t even understand what it is she does for a living yet.

1 Steve Jobs' Children Weren't Allowed To Connect

Steve Jobs didn’t make movies or TV shows, he changed the way people watched them by developing Apple products including the iPhone and iPad. Despite being one of the integral forces in changing technology, Jobs didn’t let his children use his new inventions. One year prior to his death, in 2010, Jobs was quoted as saying “we limit how much technology our kids use at home,” explaining his children had never even used an iPod. With technology controlling every element of the current generation, it’s amazing the next generation of the family who invented that technology were ever denied it. At the same time, though, considering they clearly have better things on their minds and most people just use that technology for Angry Birds, maybe that’s a good thing.
