Great Fatherhood Advice From Celebrity Dads

Jayson Beck

Journalist

Being a dad isn't easy. Oh, sure, becoming one is so easy, you might do that without wanting to. But what do you do when they (duties) come for you? Do you collapse on the floor and cry? Go out for a pack of cigarettes and never come back? Or do you man up and do your thing?

Celebrities have to face the same questions as we do, but they can probably hire better nannies and make the interns change the diapers. Along the road, some of them accumulated some parenting advice that we could all follow. So while your swooning about dad bods, please appreciate some dad brains!

Ashton Kutcher on emergencies:

"There are NEVER diaper changing stations in mens public restrooms. The first public men's room that I go into that has one gets a free shout out on my FB page!"

Donald Trump on having a job:

"The hardest thing for me about raising kids has been finding the time. I know friends who leave their business so they can spend more time with their children, and I say, 'Gimme a break!' My children could not love me more if I spent fifteen times more time with them."

source

Hugh Grant on important lesson:

"Good manners and not being selfish. And discipline – I do think discipline's important."

source

Ryan Renolds on being chill:

"Everyone thinks their baby's a genius. People find it delightfully refreshing when I tell them, 'My baby? Totally average. 100 percent average.'"

source

Will Ferel's advice:

"For me, talk to your children, at least once a week," he said. "If you've got time, do it two or three times a week."

Bruce Willis' advice to Prince Phillip:

He advised: "Stay home for the first year, don’t go anywhere, just be there. Play with that baby every day."

Robert Downey Jr. on teens:

"Sometimes you just gotta be drop-kicked out of the nest. There are some parents who have really done it right and told their kid, 'You know, we have this dough, none of this is for you. You have to get your own.'"

source

Will Smith on discipline:

"We don't do punishment. The way that we deal with our kids is, they are responsible for their lives. Our concept is, as young as possible, give them as much control over their lives as possible ... you can do anything you want as long as you can explain to me why that was the right thing to do for your life."

source

David Beckham on bonding:

"I read a book to my children – they love the Gruffalo although Brooklyn is a bit old for that now. Harper just loves fairies, she's all about fairies and princesses so I'm reading fairy books at the moment."

source

Brad Pitt on the basics:

"Kids hold up a mirror to you....You can't make excuses. You've got to make sure they've brushed their teeth and eaten a good breakfast. You want to be present if they wake up with a bad dream."

source

Will Smith, pt. 2: on winging it:

“I was looking like, what am I going to do with this thing? You know. And it's like - parenting is hit or miss. And it's experimental. So for me, it's a deep uncertainty, that I carry around, with my kids. I just try to teach them everything that I know and love them as hard as I can love them. And hope for the best.”
