Lionel Richie's Parenting Strategy

Lionel Richie's three children may be grown up, but the star still finds fatherhood difficult, especially when it comes to dishing out love advice for his two daughters.

The singer is father to Nicole, 38, Sofia, 21, and 25-year-old son Miles, and admits he can often relate better to his son as the issues raised seem a lot more manageable to him.

Discussing his family life, he told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Let me just tell you it falls into two categories. Boys, you know, are basic knuckleheads. So when they come to you, you know what that's all about because you were one of them and probably still are.

"When it comes down to the girls, girls can shock because they're open about their lives now. I remember going to my girls and saying, 'OK, just tell me whatever's on your mind, run it by me and I can help you.'

"They've brought me some stories some days and I went, 'I don't want to know about this.'"

Lionel developed a tactic to deal with his children and says married men should always send their daughters to talk to their wife, while they should simply tell their sons not to be stupid.

He explained: "So all I can say to all the guys out there who have girls, just call your wife in the room and say, 'Honey, you can handle that.'

"And as far as the boys are concerned, just tell them, 'Don't be stupid'. But it is a challenge, especially now with social media."
