D-Wade rules.

“When you come in the house, you get out of your school clothes, [and] you put them in the hamper.  You put your shoes away, wash your face, [and] brush your teeth. It’s a list I want them to follow.”

Drop-offs.

“I was like one of the only dads doing a lot of drop-offs, and they called me Mr. Mom for a while.”

On the large number of single-mother homes in the African-American community.

“As men we have to get back in line to raise our families. [We have] to make sure that this country that we live in can continue to strive by raising great kids.”

Being a millionaire and raising kids.

“It’s not about how much money I have or don’t have. It’s about the time I’m willing to sit down across the table from my kids; and if they don’t get something right, [it's about] helping them get it right.”

  1. LOL!!! I know I’m super late but these comments must be from D Wade’s ex-wife.. he did not cheat on her and leave her.. they simply grew apart. People do grow apart in relationships, their situation was nothing new. The only reason you guys feel that way is because his ex-wife drug their divorce out into the public. I’ve never met D Wade or his ex- wife but I think she (ex-wife) was wrong for bring a very private matter out into the open.. and to sue Gabby (D Wades girlfriend) on behalf of the kids was beyond crazy.. I for one would not want my kids living with someone unstable as their mother. I believe D Wade is a very GOOD man and a EXCELLENT father. I was very blessed myself to have a STRONG BLACK EDUCATED father like D Wade to step up and do a job well done at rasing a EDUACTED BLACK FEMALE.. it’s crazy how some people are never happy.. if he was a dead beat that wasn’t seeing or taking care of his kids he would be dogged out, but since he is a strong black man with his head on straight taking care of his kids, he’s still being dogged.. goes to show you that you can’t make everyone happy..

  2. How could they even say single father.They still see their mother sometimes and he’s only a single father bcuz he bribed and lied on the mother of his kids.

  3. I don’t want to hear anything he has to say after he took those kids away from their mother only to leave them with nannies.

  4. Yeah …………Great role model show them how to cheat on their women and commit adultery. D-Wade is full of it .A picture does not speak a thousand words only one a Picture!!!! These ball players think that they can do whatever they want to whomever. Heard his new Girlfriend does not even want kids, ……….That’s a good person to hook up with as a Single Mother. I am not hatin on them just stating my opinion.

    • co-sign^^^^the media keeps giving his cheating butt all these interviews. i personally think he bribed the judge to take those kids away from the mother so he wouldn’t have to pay child support while he runs around town with his mistress to the NBA/NFL players. nothing cute about his situation at all.

  5. He can’t deny the older one, but the younger one must look like his mother. I’m happy Dwayne is such an awesome father. It is not up to us to like him honestly, he is doing the right thing. I think he has strong character…

  6. “It’s not about how much money I have or don’t have. It’s about the time I’m willing to sit down across the table from my kids; and if they don’t get something right, [it's about] helping them get it right.”

    WONDERFUL!
