“I feel like all you can do when explaining the unimaginable is be present with them. And keep being present with them wherever they’re at, for as long as they need. You can’t process for them, you can’t mitigate their pain, and you can’t dictate their timeline. They all broke down at different times – and for different reasons. Some still talk about it. Some don’t like to.”

The Rules of Attraction‘ added that he is strongly encouraging his fans and followers to be open and honest towards their kids. According to him, it is quite important to let the loved ones being a part of the journey, which can be bitter from time to time.
