LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Mila Kunis refuses to raise spoiled or entitled children.
"It's so important because we both came from pretty solid poverty backgrounds and grew up very poor and are very much self-made and are very aware of what a dollar is worth," Kunis said. "Nothing's been handed to us."
"It's a matter of teaching them from a very early age that 'Mommy and Daddy may have a dollar, but you're poor,'" she explained. "'You are not rich. You are very poor. You have nothing. Mommy and Daddy have a bank account.'"
Kunis and Kutcher welcomed their first child, daughter Wyatt, in 2014 and married in a quiet ceremony the next year. The couple confirmed in June that the actress is pregnant with their second child.
"My parents went through hell and back. They came to America [from Ukraine] with suitcases and a family of seven and $250, and that's it," Kunis had recalled in the August issue of Glamour.
"Ultimately, my dad owned cabs, and my mom worked her way up to manager of a Rite Aid," she said. "But growing up poor, I never missed out on anything. My parents did a beautiful job of not making me feel like I was lesser than any other kids."
