Every parent wants their child to follow in their footsteps, but Holly Madison is hoping that 2½-year-old daughter Rainbow Aurora‘s future path steers clear of the Playboy Mansion.

“When she is an adult, she will be able to do what she wants, but from day one I’ve tried to raise her to know she has value, her body parts have value, and she doesn’t have to do something cheap or tawdry to get attention,” Madison told Yahoo! Parenting.

“If she wanted to [be a Bunny] — and God forbid she did — I would tell her my whole experience with it and I’d be honest that it wasn’t what I thought it would be.”

In fact, Madison reveals, one of the reasons she wrote Down the Rabbit Hole, her tell-all book about her time as Hugh Hefner‘s number one girlfriend, was to make sure that Rainbow knew the whole story about her mother’s time in the mansion.

The former Playboy bunny hopes to expand her family “hopefully soon,” she tells PEOPLE, though her busy schedule keeps her fairly well occupied for the time being as she tours to promote Down the Rabbit Hole, out June 29.
