Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard On Who Plays Good Cop and Bad Cop With Daughters Aired March 13, 2019

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are, without a doubt, one of Hollywood's cutest couples. They love working and co-parenting their two daughters together. But when it comes to their children, ages 4 and 5, which one of these two fabulous actors plays "good cop" and which one plays "bad cop"?

If you guessed Kristen as the good cop, you'd be right!

"Mainly because I'm intensely co-dependent and I cave!" Kristen says.

So what they're saying is, she does know how to let it go. 😉

She also says she's a firm believer in siding with them if they make realistic arguments and according to her, "They make really good arguments!" (According to Dax, it's more like "10%" of their arguments are worth hearing.)

Although Dax is the disciplinarian, there IS one way his kids can flip him.

"When they touch your face and they go 'Daddy,'" Kristen reminds Dax. How adorable!

Now, even though Kristen is the good cop, it doesn't mean her kids don't get mad at her.

"They're mad at me a lot because I have girls and I'm the mom, so I'm always doing something wrong," "The Good Place" star says. "It's in their DNA to reject me!"

Aside from their parenting skills, the duo dished on other aspects of family life.

As it turns out, their daughters are quickly learning story structure. (Dad Dax is also a writer, so he's teaching them the ins and outs of how to write a story.)

The couple recently took their 5-year-old daughter, Lincoln, to see "Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse" with one of her friends. To calm her friend's nerves, Lincoln said, "It's okay, the hero always lives, and this is just the conflict that all story needs."

Wait, she's 5?!
