"One thing that Jessica and I are 100 percent aligned on is that we're not raising a--holes," Warren, 41, told the outlet. "If they get out of line, we're not going to stand for it. We've tried to maintain the values our parents taught us."

"I don't shy away from setting boundaries and routines," Alba added. "They have to make their beds. They have to set the table, clear the table — those are no-brainers, right? They participate in taking care of the home and themselves."
