“I mean, there’s no way around it with kids. I don’t like having to lay down the law and stuff. But, [sometimes] you simply have no choice,” he said.

“And any parent, I think, would say the same thing. You always want to do the right thing for the kids and give them the benefit of the doubt, but sometimes you just can’t.”
