Kristen Bell watches ''a lot'' of nature shows with her daughters.

The 'Bad Moms' actress has admitted she and her husband Dax Shepard aren't keen on letting their girls Lincoln, four, and Delta, three, binge watch cartoons on the small screen and much prefer them to educate themselves with wildlife series.

Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', the 37-year-old beauty said: ''We watch a lot of nature shows. They love David Attenborough. We let them watch some cartoons on the weekends but mostly we sit down and watch nature shows together and talk about the animals.They always want us to freeze frame the animals and take pictures on our phone and then put it next to them so they can draw it. It's kind of great.''

And it's not just at home the couple encourage learning, as they decided to send their girls to a nursery that focuses on emotional health so that they can strive to be the best they can be and learn to stand up for themselves in the outside world.

Kristen said: ''When the kids get physical with each other -- which they do because they're all feral at this point -- they teach them to say things like: 'I don't like it when you touch my body like that.' They say that to me: 'I don't like having my hair touched.' ''

She also poses questions when she's reading them stories at bedtime about the princess falling in love with the prince after one kiss.

She explained: ''I see a lot of books my daughters are given. And it's all about the prince wanting to marry the princess and all he does is kiss her and she says 'Yes!'

''I say, 'I wonder why he didn't get to know her? I wonder why he didn't ask her whether she wanted to marry him?'

''It's a really tiny change, but I'm definitely working toward empowering them.''

And the blonde beauty recently revealed she has cut down on using the phrase 'it's OK' around her brood, because she thinks it ''shuts down'' their ability to express.

She explained: ''I do really like reevaluating how much we say to them, 'It's OK,' because it weirdly shuts down their ability to have emotions. Because they think, 'It's OK. I shouldn't be embarrassed. I shouldn't be sad.' So now when they get sad or embarrassed, I say, 'That's a stinky feeling, huh? I've felt it, too.' I just let them experience it, and hopefully it'll make healthy adults ... The one finger rule was something I really enjoyed. They said, 'Let your toddler experience things.' Like, 'I wanna touch that vase!' Rather than always saying, 'No,' you say, 'Let's do it! Let's do one finger.' So, my toddlers go around and touch everything with one finger.''
