Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are notoriously protective of their daughters, Lincoln, 6, and Delta, 5, but this weekend, the actress gave fans a rare peek into her and Shepard's parenting style.

In a series of Instagram Story videos on Friday, Bell revealed her (hilarious) reactions to a conversation between Shepard and one of their daughters about cursing and using the middle finger.

In the video (which, for the record, was filmed in a public space), their daughter tells her dad about a kid at school who uses the middle finger constantly. Here's how the conversation (which Bell could hardly contain her laughter during) went down:

A fan account posted the video, which you can watch below:

"I have been waiting for this conversation since the day I got pregnant," Bell wrote on the video. "The one where we talk about what fingers mean what when u hold em up. I [am] fidgeting because I am trying so hard not to laugh. It's excruciating. @daxshepard you handled this brilliantly."
