Actress Kelly Preston's efforts to raise her children with John Travolta are proving challenging - because the actor refuses to discipline them.

Preston is often left with the job of reprimanding their 13-year-old son JETT and daughter ELLA, five, whenever they step out of line because her husband is a big softy.

She says, "Johnny has absolutely no discipline. He is the dad who says, 'I can't, hon.' He just can't (discipline them).

"We both definitely give the kids freedom and boundaries and we let them make decisions with limits, but there are definite boundaries. I find myself having to navigate them through that a little bit more than my husband."
