We all know him as an accomplished fashion model, sportsman, actor and politician.

But how is Richard Gomez as a father?

We gleaned a bit about it in his interview with “Sakto,” recently.

Richard shared, “I am very cool to Juliana pero hindi ko naman siya ini-spoil. Medyo estrikto ako in some ways pero hindi sa lahat ng bagay. Ayaw ko naman na kinakatakutan niya ako. Gusto ko kapag may gusto siyang sabihin sa akin ay nakakausap niya ako.”

When it comes to matters of the heart, he intoned, “Siya at mommy niya ang laging nag-uusap pagdating diyan…mga crush-crush, ang kausap niya diyan nanay niya.”

Of course, he also dispenses advice when needed.

Richard related, “Sinasabi ko sa kanya lagi na No.1 bata pa siya, she’s just turning 21 pa lang. Marami pang oras na pwede niyang pag-isipan kung ano ang gusto niyang gawin. Anyways hindi ko naman siya pinagbabawalan. Kung mayroon siyang manliligaw sa bahay, kung may pumupunta roon, okay lang naman sa amin.”

His greatest fear?

“Siyempre lahat tayong parents kinakatakutan natin biglang mag-asawa ‘yung mga anak natin. What I really want for Juliana is for her to fulfill her dreams. Alam ko na mahaba pa, marami pa siyang makukuhang success sa buhay niya. So it’s really up to her. Kami naman ni Lucy hanggang suggestions lang kami, hanggang payo lang ang magagawa namin. But when it comes to implementation kung ano ang gusto niya sa sarili niya ay nasa kanya ‘yon.”

His advice to other parents?

“Kailangan talaga maganda ang line of communications niyo. No matter how busy you are, you really have to find time para makipag-communicate, No. 1 sa asawa at saka roon sa mga anak mo. Then kapag mayroon kang free time, you really have to give time na makasama mo sila kahit sa bahay lang. ‘Di niyo kailangang mamasyal, kahit sa bahay lang — you read together, you pray together, just watching TV together, just being on the table, kuwentuhan lang. Communication is really very important.”
