Denise Richards is a strict parent

Denise Richards is a "strict parent".

The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star is mother to Sam, 15, and Lola Rose, 14, whom she has with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, as well as adopted eight-year-old daughter Eloise, whom her current husband Aaron Phypers is in the process of adopting too.

And the star - who previously revealed she installed security cameras outside her home to make sure her daughters don't go out to meet boys without her permission - says she can be tough with her brood.

She said: "I think that my daughters will tell you that I'm a strict parent. I definitely have rules and boundaries and there's consequences. [I don't let them] do whatever they want."

Denise tries to teach her daughters the lessons she was taught as a child, including raising them not to be "judgemental".

She added: "[I try] to follow a lot of the stuff that my parents instilled in me and my sister. They are not judgmental people, [they raised me to understand that] everyone is equal.

"That's something that's really stuck with me and something that I really want to instil in my daughters."

And although raising three children is no easy task, the 48-year-old beauty says she's "very proud" of her brood, especially as they're such "polite" girls.

Recalling a time when she received a phone call from another parent whilst her children were at their house, she told People magazine's Celeb Parents Get Real series: "The parent called me and told me how polite the girls were and they cleaned up after themselves and they were helping with the younger sibling.

"And I was like, 'Oh wow, it really does sink in,' because at home they're not like that. So I was very proud of them."
