Kelly Clarkson hopes she raises her kids to not fixate on physical appearance. She compliments her kids on their accomplishments and personalities more than looks.

The pop star told People:

“Anytime our little girl — our 3-year-old — walks in, everybody’s like, ‘You’re so pretty!’ I don’t mind her being pretty, I don’t mind people saying it, but I don’t want her to get boxed into that. I feel like sometimes that happens with girls. I always say ‘cool’ and ‘fun,’ and we use different adjectives. I make a point to do that.”

That isn’t to say, however, that Kelly necessarily rejects Disney movies and princesses. She just points out the strength of their inner qualities over appearances to her kids:

“I’m not one of those people that’s like, ‘I hate princesses.’ I think they’re awesome, I know all the songs. But I make a point to always say other adjectives. It’s not always like, ‘Oh, you look beautiful.’ It’s like, ‘Man, you’re so rad,’ ‘You’re stylish,’ ‘You’re cool,’ ‘You’re unique.’”
