EXCLUSIVE: Richard Gutierrez on parenting their eldest son Zion: ‘I’m not super strict’


As a father of two young boys Zion and baby Kai, Richard Gutierrez admits he is more of a cool dad especially when it comes to his eldest son Zion. “I’m not super strict. There’s boundaries. So I try not to be so strict. I try to let them be and let them decide and grow on their own. But we give them guidelines and boundaries,” he told PUSH.

The Unbreakable star said that growing a strong connection to his kids is what is most important. “Now that Zion is six years old, yan yung age na crucial di ba so you have to set discipline and kanya kanyang ways lang naman kung paano mo i-di-discipline yung child. I think talking to them and making them understand is number one priority more than anything. As a brother, Zion is makulit. Makulit siya ngayon pero he cares for his brother now more,” he said.

Even though his older son is not camera shy, even showing signs of being interested in performing, Richard admitted he does not want to think of Zion entering showbiz anytime soon. “He enjoys singing. We’ll see. He’s still young so everything is like play time for him. Right now me and Sarah don’t really talk about it because we want him to focus on his studies and sports and different things. When the right time comes siguro,” he added.
