Sarah Jessica Parker admits she can be an embarrassing mother.
The 'Sex and the City' actress - who has children James, eight, and two-year-old twins Tabitha and Marion with husband Matthew Broderick - admits her son has written up a list of rules banning her from doing certain things in public to ensure she doesn't upset him.
She explained: "James doesn't like me using words he thinks I'm too old to use and I'm not allowed to dance in front of anyone.
"I would never dance in public in a million years but I do it in private just to annoy him. I used to do a special song and dance for him when he was a toddler, but now when I say I feel it coming on, he screams, 'Nooooo.' "
The 'I Don't Know How She Does It' star also admitted she even toilet trains her children with candy bribes.
She added: "As a parent, you're constantly breaking rules. I potty train my kids by using half a jelly bean, which is bribery.
"One of my daughters now sits on her potty and just makes the sound of peeing. She's a clever one."
