Helena Bonham Carter is taking time away from Hollywood to learn how to be a better mum.
The Howards End star, who is married to moviemaker Tim Burton, is taking parenting lessons so she can perfect her mothering skills around kids Billy, seven, and two-year-old Nell.
She tells Eonline.com, "I'm not working right now. I need to be a mom. It's much harder being a mom than an actress.
"I'm taking parenting classes. You know, no one taught me what to do... They're teaching me some really interesting things, like it's not your job to know everything... You've got to get them (kids) to think for themselves."
