Don't worry, Carlos. You're def not the only lenient parent in the entertainment industry…
Madonna's ex Carlos Leon has opened up about his parenting style for their daughter Lourdes, and we're liking a lot of what he has to say.
Here's what he had to say about his parenting style, overall:
"I'm a lenient dad. I'm very empathetic, and I'm good at listening to my daughter … I'm probably a bad dad when it comes to disciplining her."
Lola's father on her curfew:
"I try to work with her on it. We settle on a time, say around 10 p.m., and she's like, 'How about 10:30?' And it eventually becomes 10:15."
And here's Carlos on his daughter and dating:
"I'm dreading it so much, because she's my little girl. I want her to stay young forever. I'm already overprotective, so when the time comes, I will be ready to have a talk with the guy she brings through the door. He better be ready, because I'll give him the rundown!"
And here's Lola's father on the movies they watch together:
"She loves to watch Harry Potter. It's a favorite of hers. We can watch that 100 times – well, she can. Twilight is also pretty big at our house. She likes Robert Pattinson. She's Team Edward all the way."
Really, Lola? Not a Tay Tay fan? To each their own! Ha!
We think it sounds like Lourdes' father is doing a pretty good job. As she gets older, the key will be for him to make sure she has SOME boundaries, but not SO many that she feels the need to rebel. It's all about finding that balance.
So far so good, Carlos. Keep it up!
