Sarah Michelle Gellar is not necessarily preparing for her kids to follow in her and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr.‘s footsteps.

For the mother of two, it’s important to let her son Rocky James, 4, and daughter Charlotte Grace, 7, do their own thing.

“It’s different because I wasn’t the child of someone that was in the public eye, and so unfortunately I think the rules are different,” she told PEOPLE at Kids in the Kitchen at The Grove in Los Angeles on Sunday.

“I think there’s a very different pressure for ‘the children of’ … They can decide what they want to do for themselves. I’ll never push them. But, in the meantime, they have to stick to schooling. My kids have too much stage fright anyway.”

There’s no rivalry for Mom’s attention in Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s house – in fact, her kids would rather the actress butt out of playtime.

“My kids are obsessed with each other,” she revealed in an interview with Momtastic, an Evolve Media company.

“Just this morning they finished breakfast and we had some time before Charlotte had to leave for the school bus and I said, ‘What do you guys want to do?’ And Charlotte said, ‘Rocky, do you want to go play in my room with me?!’ ”

She continues, “He was like, ‘Yeah! Mommy, you no come!’ They just wanted to do their own thing together, just the two of them.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Freddie Prinze Jr. Has More ‘Cred’ with Kids, I ‘Drive Carpool’

10/08/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are both starring on the upcoming season of Disney’s animated Star Wars Rebels but according to the actress, her husband gets way more credit for his role with their children’s friends than she does.

PEOPLE caught up with Gellar at the Mamarazzi event celebrating Foodstirs, the actress’ new baking kit venture, in New York City on Wednesday, and she revealed what their 6-year-old daughter Charlotte‘s pals think of her and Prinze’s roles.

“My joke is that — it’s not a joke, it’s kind of sad actually, because Freddie is on [Star Wars Rebels] and so all the kids at school are like, ‘That’s Charlotte’s daddy. He’s a Jedi,’ ” Gellar tells PEOPLE. “‘And that’s her mom, she drives carpool.’ ”

She jokes, “I was like, ‘I’ve got to get come cred with these kids!’ ”

Sarah Michelle Gellar: How I Teach My Daughter About Childhood Hunger

08/20/2015 at 10:30 PM ET

Becoming a mother to daughter Charlotte Grace, 5, and son Rocky James, 3 next month, renewed Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s drive to give back.

“You realize when you become a parent that it’s not just your children you’re responsible for, it’s everybody’s children,” the actress, 38, tells PEOPLE. “I really looked for something that I could do on a local and national level that involved children, and also someplace that I could introduce my children to social awareness.”

That’s why Gellar got involved with No Kid Hungry, which aims to end childhood hunger in America.

“It can’t just be me saying to my daughter, ‘There are hungry children out there,’ ” she says. “I need her to understand that those hungry children are next door, and that this is a real problem. I think the most important thing about No Kid Hungry is that they don’t just say there’s a problem — they have a solution.”
