Mathew McConaughey On Tough Parenting
People often assume that celebrities like to give the entire world to their kids. No matter how illogical their demand is, the celebrities fulfill it. However, that is not true with Greenlights author and his wife, Camila Alves. Mathew McConaughey recently opened up talking about the tough parenting rules he has to follow while taking care of his kids.
The Greenlights author said that it is important that he says no to his three children, Vida, 10, Livingston, 7, and Levi, 11 months. While we understand that his youngest son is not even 1 year old yet, so he is the most pampered one for now. However, the same is not true for Vida and Livingston, who get to see the tough side of Greenlights author from time to time.
Mathew McConaughey says that he was very lucky to be born in a middle-class family. While growing up, he had a roof over his head, a floor beneath his feet, and food in his stomach.

He says that it is very easy for affluent people to provide their kids with everything in the world. But if those parents really care about their children, they would know when to stop. The Greenlights author says that it is all about tough love and knowing the right balance for a better future.
