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.'”
He also admitted that he is “more consistently the yes guy” with his kids compared to his wife.
