Princess Beatrice's husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, has revealed the parenting hack the couple are using to raise their daughter, Sienna. The newlyweds welcomed their baby just last month on 18 September, and Edo has another child, 4-year-old Christopher Woolf, from a previous relationship.
Speaking to the Financial Times (via HELLO!) about being a father, Edo opened up about his favourite method of parenting. "The best book I’ve read in the past year is How to Raise Successful People by Esther Wojcicki," he said, "There is nothing more important than raising and educating our kids and doing it well and she achieved this using the word TRICK."
In Wojcicki's parenting book, which was released in 2019, "TRICK" stands for: trust, respect, independence, collaboration and kindness. The author claims that using this "TRICK" teaches children to take responsibility for their own lives from an early age.
The 79-year-old, who is also known as the Godmother of Silicone Valley, has raised incredibly successful children herself. Her daughter, Susan, is the CEO of YouTube, while one of her other daughters, Anne, is the founder and CEO of 23andme, a genetic testing company.
Speaking about the advice in her book, Wojcicki says it "builds up a relationship that says to your child: 'I believe in you'." According to the author, "That's the most powerful thing you can do because when you believe in your kid, they believe in themselves."
She continued: "Life is full of failure! You have to get up from that failure and move to the next step. If you have no faith in yourself you'll never be able to do [anything]."
Princess Beatrice and Edo have remained relatively low-key since welcoming their daughter last month, but just a few days ago the pair were spotted enjoying an autumnal stroll as a family.
In the photos, which can been seen via OK!, the Princess smiles as she chats to Edoardo who's pushing their daughter in the pram. The new parents looked completely relaxed as they blended in with other members of the public. The Queen's granddaughter wore a quilted coat paired with a cosy jumper and a pair of black jeans, while her partner wrapped up in a navy jumper, white shirt, jeans and trainers.
The sighting came just a few days after Edoardo took to Instagram to share a sweet message of appreciation for his wife, daughter and son. Speaking to his 96.8k followers, he said: "Feeling so much love and gratitude for my amazing wife, baby Sienna and Wolfie. These are the days I never want to forget."
