Jennifer Garner has learnt to "chill out a bit" as far as her children are concerned.
The actress and her husband Ben Affleck have three children together; Violet, six, Seraphina, three, and son Samuel who is six months old.
Jennifer's parenting style has changed over the years since extending her brood.
"It evolves all the time. With my first child, I was a little more like Cindy Green in this movie who is just obsessively trying to make sure her child is happy at every moment as many first time moms can be," she explained as she compared her experience as a mother to her character in her newest film The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
"Then you kind of learn to let go of some of that when you're working the hardest, you're making it the hardest for your child. You let them be a bit and you just chill out a bit."
Jennifer insists her more relaxed approach to motherhood has achieved positive results. The Hollywood beauty lets her family and work lives mix more fluidly now.
"I went from having a diaper bag filled with 15 diapers and ten changes of clothes and rash cream to throwing a diaper in my purse and thinking, 'Yeah, we'll figure out the rest, it's good,'" she smiled in an interview with Just Jared.
