“I’m not the type to give a lot of advice. But to be a good parent, you have to be there,” he added. “When I’m home, I’m home. I don’t work at home unless it’s after the kids go to sleep.
“I don’t want my kids to say, ‘My dad never had time for me.’ They understand that there is a time when I have to work, but when I get home, they need my full attention. I try to make every moment count. ”
