In a recent interview with Parade magazine, soon-to-be dad Tom Cruise reveals some haunting insights about his own father:
"He was a bully and a coward â€“ the person where, if something goes wrong, they kick you. â€¦ It was a great lesson in my life, how he’d lull you in, make you feel safe and then, bang!"
I hope, for the sake of the baby, that family history doesn’t repeat itself as is all-too-often the case. One minute you’re just playing paddycakes with mommy, then all of a sudden – BANG! – daddy is jumping up and down on the sofa, yelling something about how your crying is glib. It’s a vicious cycle.
