And the Duchess of Cambridge is no different when it comes to her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
In fact, Kate has the added pressure of all eyes and all cameras on her family whenever they make a public appearance.
However, it is rare to see the Cambridge children step outside the line and according to a parenting expert, it is because Kate is a “warm and sensitive mum”.
Dr Rebecca Chicot, founder of Essential Parent and author of Calm and Happy Toddler, told Fabulous: “It’s called an authoritative parenting style that is now being encouraged. ”
Here are some of the techniques she follows …
At her sister Pippa’s wedding in 2017, Kate was seen placing her hands on Prince George’s head after he appeared to start acting.
She was also seen telling George, Charlotte and the other little bridesmaids and page boys of “shhh” as they entered the church.
And according to Dr. Rebecca: “She seems good at making warm touch ‘head touching’ which is a nice connection. “
Getting to their level
When talking to her children, Kate is often seen bending down at her children’s eye level.
And parental author Martina Mercer says it’s important because it shows you’re not dominating the child.
She told the Express: “She understands the importance of being at the level of the children and not dominating them.
“It’s a trend over the last few decades because psychologists have explained that it has many benefits.
“It removes fear from the parent while still using eye contact and connecting with the child at their level. “
Raising his finger
When Princess Charlotte had a little temper tantrum in 2017 while at Hamburg airport, Kate quickly aired the situation.
She knelt at her daughter’s height, spoke calmly to him, and raised her finger.
Dr Rebecca said: “It shows firmness and warmth – neither cuddling nor getting angry. “
Kate and William have both implemented a nifty trick when things get out of hand – and it’s not the wrong step.
Instead, they have their kids sit down for a conversation on the sofa.

A source told The Sun: “The naughty child is taken from the scene of the argument or the disturbance and has spoken calmly to Kate or William.
“Things are explained and consequences described and they never yell at it. “
Spend time in nature
Kate has previously explained that she thinks spending time outdoors “enjoying the simple things” is good for kids.
Speaking on the Happy Baby Happy Mum podcast, she said, “As kids we spent a lot of time outdoors and that’s something that really excites me.
“I think it’s so good for physical and mental well-being and for laying that foundation. “
Never afraid to show affection
Even though Kate is quick to use discipline when necessary, neither she nor William are afraid to show affection towards their children.
As recently as last week, Prince George was seen hugging his mom and dad and celebrating wildly with them when England scored a debut goal in the Euro 2020 final against Italy at Wembley.
While they were full-time they were seen consoling their eldest son after England lost a heart-wrenching penalty shootout.
And in 2018, during a visit to the Basildon Sporting Center, Kate smiled as she told fans, “Hugs are very important. This is what I tell my children ”.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Dannielle Haig, senior psychologist at DH Consulting, praised the couple for expressing their affection so openly.
“The overt affection that Wills and Kate show for their children is most certainly unusual for the British royal family,” she said.
“But my God, how wonderful to see.
“As a psychologist, it is well known that children need to feel the affection, love and security of their parents in order to truly thrive and be happy in life. “
