Worried about raising your kids right? Louis C.K. has been there.
In the April 24 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, the 47-year-old comedian talked about raising his daughters in New York and making sure they stay down to earth. Here's what he had to say:
I talk to [my kids] about work, and I hope they both have shitty minimum wage retail jobs when they're old enough. I really try to be aware of not letting them grow up weird or spoiled, which is easier to do here than it is in L.A. My 13-year-old daughter leaves the house at 7:15 every morning and takes a smelly city bus to school way uptown. It's like 8 degrees out, and it's dark and she's got this morning face and I send her out there to take a bus. Meanwhile, my driver is sitting in a toasty Mercedes that's going to take me to work once both kids are gone. I could send her in the Mercedes and then have it come back to get me, but I can't have my kid doing that. I can't do that to her. Me? I earned that f--ing Mercedes. You better f--ing believe it.
Louis C.K. has opened up about his parenting style in the past. While doing a bit on "parenting, kids and questions," he said, “I’m not raising children. I’m raising the grownups they’re going to be. I have to raise them with the tools to get through a terrible life. That’s the way I look at it."
It certainly seems like those kids are developing some solid life skills.
