It's never too early to start teaching your children valuable life lessons, and Ivanka Trump told US Weekly she's on a mission to do just that with her 23-month-old daughter Arabella Rose.

Her second child with husband Jared Kushner is on the way, and Trump, 31, the daughter of billionaire real estate developer Donald Trump, said that teaching Arabella Rose right from wrong has been an interesting challenge.

"She's really good at telling me I have to share with her," Trump told US Weekly with a laugh. "She's less good about actually sharing back. She offers to share and then when you get close, she pulls it back and says 'no,' particularly when food's involved."

Trump said she will have no problem laying down the law.

"Arabella isn't even 2, so she hasn't thrown me the challenges of a teenager," Trump said. "I have a feeling I'm going to be pretty strict. My mother (Ivana Trump) laid down pretty concrete guidelines and the concept of 'because I said so' was a totally viable option."

Trump told US Weekly in May that carving out one-on-one time with her daughter is a challenge while running her business.

"If I'm working on a big deal and need to be in the office, I'm in the office. If Arabella needs me, I better be home and accessible and available," she said. "Parenting is something you don't get right every day, but you try to get right as many days as possible. Ultimately it's a marathon. Time matters and being a consistently accessible, supportive parent is important."

Ivanka Trump's net worth is $150 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth.com. 

The model and entrepreneur also works for the Trump organization as executive vice president of development and acquisitions. She has appeared on her father's reality show "The Apprentice." She just launched the Trump Wellness program for guests at her family's collection of 5-star luxury hotels nationwide, according to US Weekly.
