The "Steve Jobs" actress has imposed strict rules about the use of electronics in the family home and does not let her children, Mia, 14, Joe, 11, and 22-month-old Bear anywhere near laptops, desktop computers or smart tablet devices, reported Female First.

"They (the children) don't have computers because we don't really do that in my house. You have to be a bit careful with that stuff with children because then they can become addicted to it like we all are.

"I want them to be kids but it's a hard fight when they say 'But so and so's got one, why can't I have one?'. I say 'well, because you can go and climb that tree instead.'

So it is quite a difficult fight for a parent to fight, but we're winning," said Winslet, 40.
