Mark Wahlberg Opens Up About What is Really Important to Him as a Father
During a May 2014 interview with Esquire, Mark Wahlberg opened up about being a father to his four children and how he wants them to work as hard as he did growing up.
“I can’t tell my kids to go to school and get an education if I don’t have a diploma. They start thinking ‘Why do we need to go You didn’t go and you turned out all right.’ But I’m proud to have it.”
Mark Wahlberg also shared that if he wanted to go and further his education and study film or whatever, he would do that. He also shared details about his approach to caring for his kids as well. “You gotta check the house and see if anybody has a sore throat. If they do, we need to swab and treat. Seeing you last night with the two boys climbing all over you – if they don’t have it already, there’s a good chance they could get it. You’re definitely contagious.”
When asked about his comment about not feeling safe as a child, Mark Wahlberg answer he doesn’t know why he said that or where it came from.
“It probably had to do with how I was feeling at the time or what I was talking about in particular. I think, for the most part, I had a pretty good childhood. It wasn’t until we got older that we realized we didn’t have what a lot of other people had.”
Mark Wahlberg went on to add that he and the rest of his family never went hungry because his dad drove a truck delivering school lunches. “So that meant we got a lot of school lunches. We ate a lot of bologna sandwiches. But they also had those little Oreo packs in there sometimes.”
