Mark Cuban is afraid of raising 'entitled jerks'

Mark Is Afraid Of Raising 'Entitled Jerks'

One of Shark Tank's biggest sharks revealed his biggest fear — and it's actually pretty sweet.

Mark Cuban is a billionaire, tech mogul, celebrity, he owns the Dallas Mavericks for cryin' out loud but of all the big hats he wears, nothing compares to being a dad.

He told ABC's WFAA that his biggest fear is that his kids grow up spoiled.

"That's my biggest fear that they grow up to be entitled jerks ... It is the scariest thing in my life, ever. After their health, there's nothing scarier. It's just terrifying."

And he says he's working hard with his wife to make sure they know the value of hard work.

"There's very specific rules that in order for them to get anything they have to do something."

When it comes to living up to dear ol' dad's success story, Cuban says he just wants his kids to be happy.

"I push them to value learning. I try to push them to be excited about learning. I try to push them to be inquisitive about the world and understand what's going on...I push them to be good people."

On Twitter Cuban got a lot of cred for his parenting style:

Bert Weiss tweeted, "MUCH RESPECT for your parenting concern about raising entitled children!"

And Shannon McMaster said, "Someone's got the right idea!"

But WFAA commenters took a different route and criticized Cuban for his lifestyle. Daniel Boyd wrote, "Well sorry Cuban first off, attitude reflects leadership and if you want your kids to not be spoiled then you need to for one Down grade from a 17 million dollar home..."

And Sharon Brown Thomas also said, "The fact that you live in a $17 million dollar house could be an issue."
