“I don’t think you can prepare. It’s a bit of a freestyle,” Channing Tatum tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Rich Cohen about raising children with his wife, Jenna Dewan. His parents, Tatum says, set a good example “for better and worse. They weren’t perfect. I don’t know anyone who did have perfect parents. It’s provided me with lessons I’ll try to improve upon when I’m up to bat. I’m just going to be a good friend to my kid. One thing I definitely want to change is that whole ‘I don’t want you to make the same mistakes’ mentality. My dad didn’t have much money growing up; he didn’t have much of an education. He forced that on me, and I didn’t want it.”
Something tells me that Channing is going to be one VERY dedicated father!
