Angelina Jolie confessed that she suffers from mom guilt and can be ‘pretty tough’ on herself when it comes to how she raises her six children.   

While making a rare comment about her family, the Oscar-winning actress, 46, admitted to regularly questioning her parenting decisions as a single mother since her split from ex-husband Brad Pitt back in September 2016.

‘I’m not a perfect parent by any means,’ the Maleficent star told People. ‘Every day I feel like I’m more aware of everything I don’t do right.’

She continued: ‘I’m pretty tough on myself, because I feel often, ‘Am I doing the right thing? Did I says the right thing?’ 

Despite doubting herself from time to time, Jolie gushed: ‘My children’s kindness has been very healing to me.’ 

She is a mom to Maddox, 20, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15 and 13-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, all of whom she shares with Pit, 57.

Speaking of her tribe, the Golden Globe winner called them all ‘pretty great people.’

‘Because there’s so many of them, I think they’ve had a very significant effect on each other. It’s not like I’m the head of anything,’ she explained. 

Jolie added: ‘I’m very honest with my kids. And I’m very human with my kids.’

The Know Your Rights and Claim author also noted she is ‘curious about all the different aspects of who they are’ and is passionate about helping them develop ‘all the different aspects of who they are.’

‘I have six very individual human beings in my home. I am so excited about all the different stages and feelings and curiosities that they go through,’  Jolie told the outlet. 

As a mother, she feels it is her job to ‘help them figure out who they are’ but says that’s impossible if you don’t ‘don’t enthusiastically develop with them.’
