As Lebron James continues to dominate the NBA with his superb basketball skills, millions of his fans are wondering if he still has some time to spare when it comes to parenting his children.
They are curious to know whether his children get pressured with his prestigious title as a basketball superstar and if any of them wants to follow his footsteps.
Well, James revealed that the whole world knows about his glorious career as an athlete except for his children! How did he keep it a secret from his kids all along? Let’s uncover the unusual upbringing James instilled to his kids when it comes to chasing their dreams.
In an interview after the Nike’s All-Star Weekend Game, Lebron James divulged about his parenting philosophy when it comes to his children. He reveals he doesn’t talk or disclose any information about his career to his kids.
Instead of letting his kids focus on his achievements or follow his footsteps as a Basketball star, James gives them the life goals and lessons he learned in the process of achieving and living his dream.
Aside from this parenting blueprint, the kids’ mother and grandparents also share essential life lessons to prepare them as they carve their own paths and follow their respective goals and dreams. James currently has three kids namely Bronny who’s his Junior, Bryce, as well as his younger daughter Zhuri.
While James is delighted to know that his oldest son, Bronny, is following in his footsteps to become a basketball player, he reveals that he’s also worried for his son. According to James, not only his kid will have to share a name with one of America’s greatest players of all time, but Bronny will also be subjected to endless scrutiny.
The famous basketball star dreads Bronny might get pressured into breaking his father’s records to prove his worth, which he doesn’t want to happen. He wants Bronny to have the freedom to chase his dreams and enjoy the process without carrying the unnecessary burden of being compared to him.
The same is true for his other children. James wants his kids to pursue their dreams and passions in life without any fear. He doesn’t want his accomplishments to hold them back in achieving their successes. Aside from giving this piece of advice, James also shared a story of why he named his eldest son after him.
Since he grew up without his dad’s support, not only did James give his son his name, but he’s also prepared to do everything for his child and provide the things his dad wasn’t able to give him. James wants to make sure his children get to experience the things he didn’t experience as a child.
