Dax Shephard Reveals A Parenting Hack To Get His Daughter To Sleep

Dax says bid farewell to an organized home.

It seems like Dax Shepard has mastered the art of putting his daughter to sleep. In a recent interview with People, Shepard shared how he gets his and Kristen Bell’s younger daughter, Delta, to fall asleep almost instantly.

“I figured out that if I scratch my younger daughter’s head extremely hard­—her request,” he said, “she is out cold within 90 seconds. I wish someone had let me know that I will never have anything nice again,” he continued. “That would’ve been a good heads-up.” 

Dax and Kristen, who are also parents to 8-year-old daughter Lincoln, shared a warning for new parents to be. Dax says bid farewell to an organized home.

“If you like that there’s no crumbs and toys on your floor, say goodbye to it. The quicker you come to accept that you’re going to live in a pigsty and that everything will be vaguely broken—the quicker you can accept that, the happier the experience is because we fought it for like six months.”

And, according to Kristen, when the kids are awake, say goodbye to quiet time.

“I wish someone told me how loud my house would become because I guess I thought they’re littler people, right? They might be less loud. And they’re not,” the star said.

“The volume is three x what a normal person should be, and the problem is it’s not just volume, it’s the consistency of noise. It’s like having NPR on all the time—so two stations of NPR on all the time—but if it were all questions. No answers, no fun stories, just all questions. And that’s a lot.”

This was not all. Dax Shepard also opened about enforcing a ‘no TV for the weekend’ ban. 

The ban was enforced by Dax when his two daughters misbehaved. The actor, 46, admitted taking the screens away from his kids simply became ‘a barbaric punishment for’ him and Bell, 41.

‘Yeah, that will never happen again,’ the Armchair Expert podcast host’s spouse said in an agreement. 

While Dax and Kristen revealed the above mentioned details, Bell told Romper about her decision to protect their kids’ privacy by only posting photos without their faces showing, last year.

‘My feeling is that I chose a career in the public eye. I chose to be quoted, I chose to have my picture taken,’ she pointed out. ‘I don’t know them yet. I don’t know if they will want that. So I really don’t have the right to choose for them.’
