London:  ‘Mr & Mrs Smith’ star Angelina Jolie says she does not prefer to "lecture" her kids about her work with refugees around the world.

The 'Salt' star, who raises six kids, Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with partner Brad Pitt, said while she likes to educate her brood about her work with refugees around the world, she doesn't tell them to think in a set way, a magazine reported.

"I'm not one of those moms who kind of lecture my kids. But I do tell them, whenever I go on a trip, where I'm going and why. And on some occasions, they've come with me to different refugee camps. And they also go to their home countries a lot," she said.

With Maddox, Pax and Zahara being adopted from Cambodia, Vietnam and Ethiopia respectively, the 36-year-old actress said she is keen for her offspring to see the world outside the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.

"Hopefully they live in the world, and they see the world really as it is, outside of Hollywood.

"If they really live in the world and spend time with friends around the world from all different types of backgrounds, they will just see things as they are," she added.
