Miami Heat’s all-star shooting guard Dwyane Wade graces the cover of Jet Magazine’s June issue. Showing he is more than an NBA superstar, the father, bestselling author and role model gives his candid perspective on life off the court. In the issue, he discusses his children and his parenting style, stating “I’m the kind of parent who asks my kids questions like what would be your ideal thing to do in the summer?…Even though I make the final decision, I want them to feel involved. Not only in vacations but other things as well.”
He also gives an insight into the custody battle with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches. “I didn’t set out to get full custody but I wasn’t able to see my kids the way I wanted and I’m not a parent who’s going to run away from his responsibilities. I was probably a terrible husband, but I pride myself on being a good dad.” In terms of his relationship with Funches, he is hopeful one day the two can “get to the point where it’s a lot easier than it is now to co-parent.”
