Alicia Silverstone Admits She Shares Bed With Her 11-Year-Old Son Because She’s A ‘Natural Mama’

Actress Alicia Silverstone is well-known. She originally gained notoriety in the 1990s after making her acting debut in the thriller "The Crush" in 1993. The following year, she won an MTV Movie Award for her performance. It's hardly unexpected that she quickly rose to fame among teenagers, especially after taking part in Aerosmith's "Cryin" music video.

Of course, no one could forget Silverstone's performance as Cher Horowitz, the title character in the 1995 adolescent comedy "Clueless." Following its initial popularity, the movie went on to become a cult favorite and is now regarded by many fans as one of the greatest teen movies ever made. The film also starred Paul Rudd, Stacey Dash, Donald Faison, and Brittany Murphy in addition to Silverstone.

Silverstone continues to play important parts after becoming even more well-known thanks to "Clueless," including her portrayal as Batgirl in the 1997 film "Batman & Robin." She has continued to make appearances in films, television series, and even plays into the early 2000s.

In addition to her acting prowess, Silverstone is renowned for her charitable efforts, campaigning, and parenting style. Silverstone, a single mother, has always tried to raise her kid with the freedom to be true to himself, to make his own choices, and to be himself.

Silverstone gained notoriety when her son, who was 9 at the time, chopped off his long hair. Even though the actor's son is now 11 years old, he still shares a bed with Silverstone. While some could claim that she is overparenting, Silverstone claimed that she is only doing what comes naturally.

Since he was a little child, Silverstone's son, Bear, has long, gorgeous hair. He loved it and decided to keep it that way as he grew up; it became his trademark. But when he was nine years old, Bear made the decision to shorten his long brown hair.

The "Clueless" actress captured the moment on camera and subsequently shared it on Instagram. What are we doing right now, Silverstone questioned her kid in the video. "Cutting my hair," the bear said. Then, she questioned him, "Why?" He said, "I have no idea," which is probably a statement we have all heard before. However, there are moments when you just have to act even if you have no idea! He continued by saying that he was both very happy and quite anxious about the big shift.

The adoring mother continued by describing Bear's enjoyment of having long hair:

"He liked it so much that he decided to keep it for as long as he did!! He only desired to experiment. Although I have a hunch he'll eventually find a way to grow his hair out again. However, I will always back my dear, thoughtful, and priceless young child in all of his choices.

Silverstone said in her essay why Bear desired a new hairdo. Was that his choice? Yes. Did I cry as I saw him get it sliced inside? Maybe, but did I make an effort to stop him? Not even for a second," she penned.

As long as Bear stays true to himself and does what makes him happy, Silverstone and Bear's father, her ex-husband Christopher Jarecki, fully support his choices.

"No matter what, I will always support my wonderful, caring, and precious little kid in any decision he makes," Silverstone said.

On "The Ellen Fisher Podcast" in July 2022, Silverstone made a further discussion about her parenting philosophy and the way she and her 11-year-old son share a bed. She said, "Bear and I still sleep together." I truly don't care if I get in trouble for stating that, though.

Bed-sharing "may be one of those methods," according to Dr. Craig Canapari, who told Good Morning America that there are "many different ways to properly raise your child." That this parenting approach would be "unhealthy, hazardous, or produce any psychological disorders" was not supported by any research, in his opinion.

The parenting style of Silverstone, according to GMA, is attachment parenting. This parenting style, which emphasizes a loving relationship, is said to be best for producing "confident, autonomous, and sympathetic children," according to WebMD.

Being a mother is easy for Silverstone, who claimed that she is just "following nature." She clarified:

"I'm a mother by nature. I'm also a devoted mother. And while our culture is afraid of love and nature, I also believe in both of them.

The actress said, "If you put your infant out there in any type of wild area where there are animals, your baby is going to get devoured. Being there is not optimal for the infant.

Despite some claims to the contrary, it is obvious that Silverstone is a loving mother who cares deeply for her son Bear. She is just parenting in a way that works for their family.
