Nicole Richie wants her children to have ''stability''.

The 30-year-old designer spent a lot of time on the road with her father Lionel Richie when she was growing up but wants Harlow, four, and three-year-old Sparrow - her kids with rocker husband Joel Madden - to spend most of their time at home.

She told the September issue of DuJour magazine: ''One of the biggest differences in the way I'm raising my kids versus the way I was raised is that I was on tour a lot. I don't really do that with my kids.

''It's important to me that they have stability. I like them to be home.''

However, Nicole - who has previously battled drug addiction - insists there was nothing ''wrong'' with the way she was raised by Lionel and her mother Brenda.

She added: ''I was taken out of school and had tutors. By the time my father went onstage, I was asleep.

''There's no right or wrong way to raise a family.

''Look, I don't know anyone who can say they don't just try and do the best that they can do.''
