In a column for 9 honeythe 42-year-old revealed that the best thing he can do is listen to his teenager.
I am not an expert parent. I’m learning like everyone else: as I go along, but I hope I can share what I’ve learned and it can help anyone else going through the same thing,” he wrote.
He then revealed the importance of listening, adding: “This is something I have historically not done well.”
‘I fell into the trap of just telling Eve what I thought she should do. He had been so preoccupied with the solution that he hadn’t really seen his point of view. She didn’t need the answer (or my answer!).’
