Matthew McConaughey on his ‘tough love’ parenting style

Matthew McConaughey recently opened up about his “tough love” parenting style.

The actor and his wife Camila Alves McConaughey have three children: Levi, 11, Vida, 10, and Livingston, 7. The couple recently sat down for an interview with Town & Country magazine.

“Sometimes loving your kids means giving them just what they want,” Matthew McConaughey said. “Other times it means tough love.”

“Affluent people can give their kids everything they want, but they’re not usually going to get what they need,” the actor continued. “Loving a child is a lot harder if you really give a damn. ‘No’ takes a lot more energy. It’s a lot easier to say ‘yes.'”

Why Your Baby Freaks Out When You Stare at Your Phone

The still face experiment is disturbing. At first, a parent and baby play together, dad smiling and cooing, baby clapping her hands and laughing. Then, prompted by the researcher, the dad turns his face away from the stroller and when he turns back his face is completely expressionless. Baby tries to get dad to smile again, but he keeps up the flat affect, remaining neutral and unresponsive. Within a few minutes, the child dissolves, crying, squirming, and desperately trying to make a connection. On a second prompt, dad turns away again, and when he looks at baby again he’s his normal self, soothing the baby who quickly recovers. Baby forgets all and gets back to playtime as if nothing happened. Only the viewer is left shaken.

Parental attention is crucially important to the healthy development of babies and young children. You don’t need the still face experiment to understand

PHOENIX, (3TV/CBS 5) – So far, 2020 has been a rough year. From the pandemic, to layoffs, national protests, nasty politics, murder hornets, we’ve had to handle a lot of unexpected news.

So much is out of our hands right now, so instead of trying to figure out how to make life work with kids doing online school while looking for a new job, one Valley family decided to embrace the messiness and take charge of the things we can control.

The two have been sharing the adventures and misadventures of their blended family of seven on their Youtube channel, “Our not so perfect life.”
