Jennifer Garner Is ‘Surrounded by Attitude’ at Home

05/06/2015 at 01:20 PM ET

As most parents know, kids can be a tough crowd.

“I’m surrounded by attitude,” Jennifer Garner, mom to Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, with husband Ben Affleck, tells PEOPLE at the Huggies Snug & Dry event.

“With the eye-rolling and the drama and the attitude. I just tell them, ‘I didn’t try to order kids with sass. How did I get all these sassy kids?’ ”

Playfulness aside, Garner, 43 — an ambassador for Save the Children — is championing aid for a very real and very serious epidemic in America. “One in three moms struggle to get diapers for their kids,” she explains.

“And studies are showing that it’s not some huge crisis that causes the stressors [for moms]. It’s the pileup of little things. It’s like revving your car engine at full speed while sitting still. Eventually it starts to run out.”

Eva Amurri Martino: ‘Mom Shaming Drives Me Crazy’

05/05/2015 at 06:30 PM ET

As a new mother, Eva Amurri Martino thought a baby nurse could help her get in a groove.

But it turns out, the first-time mom just needed to follow her own instincts.

“I find that a lot of people have a lot of advice. You have to do what works for you, whether that’s co-sleeping or getting on a schedule, it has to work for your family,” the actress, 30, tells Cricket’s Circle.

“Our baby nurse got us on a schedule that was stressing me out, so we got rid of it.”

That attitude has been Amurri Martino’s mantra along the way: Finding what works best for her family. And the mother of daughter Marlowe Mae, 8 months, hopes others will share in her sentiments.

“Mom shaming drives me crazy,” she says. “Why does every mom need other moms to do things their way? New motherhood is such a vulnerable and powerful time, but it’s also really hard. Do not judge other moms on how they raise their children.”

Marisa Miller: Why I’m Posing Nude (While Pregnant!) for PETA

05/05/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Marisa Miller is baring it all for a cause close to her heart.

The mom-to-be — who previously posed nude while pregnant with son Gavin Lee, now 2  — is stripping down to show her support for animals in captivity as part of PETA‘s new campaign, SeaWorldofHurt.

“I’ve always been an animal lover and I do a lot with ocean conservation,” the model, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“I always see dolphins when I surf, but I didn’t have the knowledge about how they are acquired. When Blackfish came out, I saw it and I was so upset.”

For the ad, Miller shows off her baby belly while lying naked in a bathtub, mimicking the world of captured killer whales, who are confined to living in small enclosures.

“Even the tanks they do their ridiculous tricks in are way bigger than where they actually sleep,” she explains. “They’re completely confined. That’s why they have all these dental problems, because they are chewing on metal and concrete — they can’t even move.”

Khloé Kardashian: I’ve Asked Kim to Dress North in Pink

Even though Khloé Kardashian says she’s let her sisters Kim and Kourtney “steer the ship” on their Kardashian Kids clothing line, the most power is actually in the hands of North, 23 months, Penelope, 2½, and Mason, 5.

“We definitely use them as inspiration, and the collection speaks to their personalities,” Kardashian tells Refinery29. “The boys line, especially, is very much all about Mason and his friends.”

Working on the baby- and toddler-focused fashion line has taught the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 30, a lot about her nieces’ and nephew’s distinct personal styles.

“It’s hysterical how kids have their own personalities, even at like 3 or 4,” she says. “Penelope likes to dress herself, for example, and what she’s drawn to is totally different than what North is drawn to. And they’re not even 3 years old yet!”

While Penelope is much girlier and prefers pink, her younger cousin North favors all-black attire.

05/04/2015 at 09:00 AM ET

“Expect the unexpected” isn’t just what Constance Zimmer says about her new TV show: She’s giving the same advice to fellow mom (and costar!) Shiri Appleby.

Zimmer told PEOPLE at the A+E Networks’ Upfront event on Thursday that she and Appleby share parenting tips since they both have young daughters.

“I’m five years ahead of her because mine is 7 and I feel like now I’m embarking on a girl,” Zimmer, 44, tells PEOPLE of daughter Colette Zoe. “She called me on the phone and says, ‘Mom, I think I want to buy a bikini.’ ”

Jennifer Garner Talks Teaching Her Kids About Skin Cancer – and Her Family’s ‘Batman Mania’

05/04/2015 at 08:00 AM ET

Jennifer Garner kicked butt as Elektra, and Ben Affleck played Daredevil before donning the Batsuit, so it’s no surprise their three children are super into superheroes.

“Oh, there is going to be Batman mania at our house next year,” Garner tells PEOPLE of Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, getting ready to watch their dad save Gotham. “But right now, it can go from Batman, to Iron Man, to Spider-Man, to any of them.”

“And just the general ninja,” she adds, laughing. “I have a ninja at my house right now.”

Garner, 43, is using her power as a public figure to help save lives outside of comic books, joining Neutrogena’s Choose Skin Health campaign.

“Skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers,” Garner says, “and meanwhile there are more cases of skin cancer diagnosed every year than breast, colon and lung cancers combined.”

She continues, “Everybody’s been touched by cancer. Luckily for me, it hasn’t hit my immediate family yet, but if you look at the statistics, it’s something that is going to touch all of us,” she continues. “It’s within our reach to find a cure, it’s within our reach to find better and more efficient treatments that do less to hurt the body. It’s all happening, but we have to make sure these brilliant doctors are supported and funded.”
